Halloween Costumes


My favorite holiday of the year is Halloween. Since Halloween falls on a Friday this year, I may even try and do something special for my students. I will try and make it a fun week for my students. I know my English class will be reading Macbeth, which has the wonderfully evil witches. I’m not sure what I will do special for my history classes, but I might tell some historical ghost stories. The kids love them.

Halloween the day when we usually don’t have to wear our masks anymore. I think that this is the reason why it has long been a favorite holiday for gay men. My best friend had her annual Halloween Party this last weekend, but since she loves in Louisiana, I can’t make it down every year, but when I go, it’s always a blast. This Saturday, I will be going to a Halloween party hosted by a co-worker.

In an effort to wear a fairly simple costume, I decided that this year I will go as Clark Kent. I won’t look anywhere near as good as Derek Hough does above, but I will go as an out of shape Clark Kent. So do any of you have Halloween plans? Will you be going in costume? If so, what will be your costume?

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
