Blind Items Revealed #18

December 10, 2017

New York, 1992: If you're a bright-eyed 18 year old gay college boy invited by your mid-twenties boyfriend to the birthday party (at a private midtown Manhattan club) of an aging counter-culture celebrity hero who popularized/invented/manufactured something still very much in use today hosted by a female member of the former Yugoslav Royal Family, you realize in retrospect that that was the case for three reasons: 1) pr, as in the kids of the new generation, just like the last, are hip to him 2) plausible deniability vis a vis the teen girls in attendance (related to #1 but also because if they're only one sex some people might raise eyebrows - also note the death of a 17 year old girl in his midst, a few decades earlier and 3) to be "available" for the older, powerful closeted gay men in attendance.

Aging counter-culture celebrity hero: Timothy Leary (LSD)
Female member of the former Yugoslav Royal Family: Catherine Oxenberg
Death of a 17 year old girl: Charlene Renee Almeida

So did Leary like only boys or did he swing both ways, and started selecting boys after Charlene died.

Oxenberg has a history of turning a blind eye, then later claiming she never knew what was happening.

Hi Everyone! I'm a long time lurker from before Enty changed the theme of the site. So glad it's back to its old format! I struggle with a life-long addiction to celebrity gossip.

Here's what I found as a follow-up to this blind: https://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=d&d=DS19690725.2.32

Sorry it's not a hot link!

Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, he's outside looking in
Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, he's outside looking in
He'll fly his astral plane
Takes you trips around the bay
Brings you back the same day
Timothy Leary, Timothy Leary
Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, he's outside looking in
Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, he's outside looking in
He'll fly his astral plane
Takes you trips around the bay
Brings you back the same day
Timothy Leary, Timothy Leary
Along the coast you'll hear them boast
About a light they say that shines so clear
So raise your glass, we'll drink a toast
To the little man who sells you thrills along the pier
