Puglisi Barbers in Foggy Bottom

When during my Saturday, 25 April 2009 documentation of the April 2009 IMF/World Bank Protests that I took a stroll around the vacinity of the IMF/World Bank complex ... I took this series of Puglisi Barber Shop in connection with my ongoing Barber Shops series. Which Diego Hair Salon at 19th and Q Streets in NW WDC is amongst my favorite barber shop windows to capture.

Located on 21st Street between Pennsylvania Avenue and G Street, NW, at the street level of the 2100 Pennsylvania Avenue Building, in a May 2007 special feature, Scott Elder of the Washington Post considers Puglisi Haircuts as one of Six Barbershops in That Make the Cut.

In a June 2004 GW Hatchet "Style" Best Of feature, Andrea Nurko reports that Puglisi is "Best haircut for your buck (male)".

And here is a great feature March 2004 article by Andrew Siddons of the GW Hatchet on the history of Puglisi's barbershop.

And here are some reviews of Puglisi Hair Cuts at Yelp which is where you will find two of my photos.

DC Council votes to recognize same-sex marriages

Click logo to read Washington Blade Breaking News blog posted dated Tuesday, 5 May 2009.

While I am a STRONG SUPPORTER of same-sex marriages and glad to hear that the DC Council passed the measure ... as a 50 something gay black male who, over the years, practiced integration ... I also understand why Marion Barry who has supported gay rights throughout the years ... may disagree.

The disparities that now exist between my white counterpart and I are far more extreme now than they were 30 years ago. And, as a 50-something gay black male, it is now very clear to me that the disparities that now exist between my white counbterpart and I have a direct correlation to the institutionalized racism that I have experienced, over the years.

I support same-sex marriage but, UNDERSTAND why Marion Barry does not.
