'There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch.'
'The reason I love Halloween is that unlike most holidays, Halloween is one you can make entirely your own. There are no pressures to decorate (which I do), or cook, (which I don't) there are no family meals or visits from the cousin you choose to avoid most of the rest of the year. There are no gifts to buy and there are not battles over whether the religious connection should or should not be in the play and you eat things you mostly try to avoid the rest of the year. Halloween is also the night you can dress as you would the rest of the year if only you could get away with it!'
Tye Briggs, FH (2012)
'As a gay kid (or any kid really who struggles with who they are or family issues) holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving can be tortuous. When your apart of a happy and healthy family, these are days to celebrate and come together. When your apart of a dysfunctional family or are in pain, these are days when the hurt is intensely spotlighted. Unlike these 'special' days which can encourage massive repression, Halloween does the opposite. Expression, especially about who you are, is something sadly still not something universally welcomed, except...for many, on October 31st.'

'I think the reason I love Halloween is simple. It may also be a reason you do and don't even know it (I would be curious to know). When growing up knowing your different, family holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving can be stressful. When in the closet it means questions from dear Aunt Ruth about girlfriends, when Out of the closet it means whispers from cousin Miranda and scowls from Uncle Phil. Halloween is not a family holiday. When I was a kid, after a certain age it was about leaving mom and dad at home to give out treats and running out of the house to meet your friends. As an adult it is still about gathering with people you want to be with instead of the stress of having to be with family who you may or may not get a long with. Families (and I love mine btw, most of them anyway) come with pressure. Halloween is pressure free, it is simply meant to be fun. At it core, it is oddly about being exactly who the boy once pretended to be, but is not. Gay or straight, anyone who stresses over what 'family' holidays bring up can celebrate this day as it is for you, not them. I hope one day to incorporate this same feeling into my Christmas's as well, but until I become totally healthy, trick or treat!'

HALLOWEEN ON FH!
I have shared before that the work of Nebraska's Prairie Visions Photography both an early and ongoing source of inspiration for me even before FH began. It was no mystery where to look when looking for a 'pic of the day' for Halloween. Prairie Visions combines all my favorite elements of the day, the fun and the fright, and of course, puts the sex in the season.

Each year, stories of the resurrection of the Phantom Phallus continue to terrify and taunt the self-righteous and the ignorant. As legend tells us, each Autumn, at midnight on October 31st, the Phantom Penis roams the back roads of small towns and villages, scouring Moose Lodge meetings and Church halls seeking out disgraced celery members, abusive parents and closeted republicans to erect his revenge.
One of the most terrifying things about the Phantom Phallus is that you cannot always predict when it will rise and appear. The PP usually remains in the dark, covered, cloaked and flaccid, often fooling it's victims into a false sense of security. Then, without warning, just when you think it's safe to pull away, it thrusts inward climatically devouring it's prey.
'I am JayBee, a photographer living in Seattle, WA. My photography strives to bring out the essence of "playful living at every naked moment possible". I'm always exploring the brilliance that lives in both simplicity and color.'
JayBee (from his profile on The Male Form)
Seattle photographer JayBee (Frisky Frolic) has been only one of a few artists actually able to successfully to capture the Phantom Phallus digitally. Usually fiercely private, and determined to avoid the lens of camera, JayBee demonstrates mythic skill and the ability to strip the spirits coverings down to the floor.
'This was a spur of the moment photo shoot. One of my models was coming by for another reason, and I had bought the mask, but not figured out what to do with it. So when he arrived, I asked if he had about 15 minutes to spare. He said yes, so I asked him to get naked and let's do an impromptu photo shoot, so I could have a Halloween posting. My models are always too happy to shed their clothes. Some walk in the door taking their clothes off, they get so excited, but all in due time, they'll be able to strip for the camera. After our 15-20 minutes, I had some images that I really thought displayed the essence of Halloween....fun, with a bit of frightful.'
When I first contacted JayBee about using some of his images for my Halloween posts, I requested using the Ghost images I posted above and these images the artist titled Black On Black. Jay got back to me quickly and last night sent on a selection of Ghostly images to select for me use. Tonight... as I was about to post, these images creeped their way into my in box. Although I had to edit out another Halloween themed post, I am sure you will clearly understand why.
Last years first season of American Horror Story initially hooked me on black rubber suits and these incredibly hot and creatively original images have cemented the fixation. I love this set, sexually charged with more than hint of risk yes, but the skin on black rubber and black rubber on black background are also intensely visually dramatic! Thanks Jay for the last minute Halloween treat!
