J.O.C. UPDATE: 5/25/20

J.O.C. WEEKLY
By Jacks of Color Owner/Operator,
Lidell Jackson





Hey, Fellahs -- LIDELL Here:


     I certainly hope All Of You are Taking Care of Yourselves, while Our Great City is in the midst of this health emergency! . . . Even though I VERY sincerely appreciate all the messages and texts I've received from many of you inquiring about my health and well-being, I must REALLY apologize for not having sent out anything since early March . . . [ Truth be told, I've actually been a bit depressed about all this stuff ] . . .


     Anyway, right before this "health hiatus" began, I was interviewed in late February by a very eager, charming and professional sociologist from France about my having started JACKS OF COLOR, and the positive effects my club has had on the NYC gay men's community . . . He was especially interested in my activist experience in this city's POC LGTSBT society [ that's "People Of Color Lesbian, G ay, Two Spirit, Bisexual and Transgender -- and if you've never heard of the Native American term "Two Spirit," just Google it ] . . .


     Suffice to say, the interview went extremely well -- and at the end he handed me a prepaid VISA card for my time! . . . Then he mentioned that he wanted to conduct a series of on-site interviews with Some Of You Attendees at Our J.O.C. Events -- to find out why you go, what effects these parties have had on your life, etc. . . .


      Missing parties? Participate in our study while social distancing! Well of course, now with the parties "on hiatus," he can't really conduct his one-on-one interviews . . . But what he CAN do, is ask for All Of You to participate in a confidential print survey . . . Here's his official request, below:

Researchers at Columbia University are doing a study about Sexual Health Promotion at parties and clubs. Take their 5-minute screener at --- -- to see if you're eligible! Eligible participants will be invited to complete a 20-minute Survey and receive a $10 AMAZON.com GiftCard!


     So Fellahs, not only will the results have a decidedly positive effect on future generations of Gay Men Of Color "and Their Friends" -- particularly within the sex-positive community -- but you'll be able to cash in the GiftCard . . . And as this sociologist wrote to me: "$10 isn't much, but I think in these difficult times we can all benefit from small things!" . . .  Miss Group Fun? Participate in our study while social distancing!

Anyway, I certainly hope as many of you as possible will engage in this Survey . . . [ I know for a fact that Yours Truly will! ] . . . And of course, feel free to offer to me any feedback or advice that you deem necessary . . .


    


    


     UNFORTUNATELY, OUR JACKS OF COLOR EVENTS WILL REMAIN ON HOLD DUE TO THE STATE OF EMERGENCY HAPPENING IN THE CITY RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE OF THE CRONAVIRUS [COVID19] PANDEMIC OUR VENUE PADDLES HAS CLOSED. THERE WILL BE NO JACKS OF COLOR EVENTS UNTIL THIS PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS HAS PAST. WE'LL CERTAINLY KEEP EVERYONE POSTED ON NEW DEVELOPMENTS.

TIPS FOR KEEPING SAFE AND PREVENTING SPREAD OF COVID-19:

  • Wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer and avoid shacking hands.
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing. Cough and sneeze into the inside of your elbow.
  • Social distancing - keep at least 6 feet away from others in public when possible.
  • If you are not feeling well with cold or flu like symptoms - STAY HOME. And contact your health provide if symptoms worsen. Only go to hospital emergency room if your symptoms worsen or instructed to by your doctor.
  • As quarantine is lefted please wear a mask of tightly woven fabic or medical grade disposable mask out in public to keep you from catching or spreading COVID-19. N95 Surgical mask are only for healthy service providers in hospital ER'S and ICU'S caring for COVID patients.
Above all please keep stay safe and stay at home as much as possible.

     In the meantime, I'm REALLY Hoping We Can Return to Our JACKS OF COLOR Events Soon! With Our Resident Masseurs ROGELIO And LEWIE -- Alternating with Each Other Every Monday . . . [ Hmmm, so strange -- occasionally I used to lament about having to host a J.O.C. Party at least once every week; well, nothing like having them be forcibly closed to cause me to miss them now MORE than I ever thought possible! ] [PEANUTS] Peppermint Patty: What surpises you most about this coronavirus?, Charlie Brown: It's done what no woman has been able to do. 
                 Cancel all sports, shutdown all bars and keep men at home! . . .

Upcoming MASSAGE & PLAY MONDAYS are:
MARCH MASSAGE-&-PLAY #1, Canceled until farther notice due to COVID19;

     The drop in petrol prices during lockdwn is like a bald man winning a hairbrush! At any rate, I'll be sure to keep Everyone Posted once we "return to normal" . . . One last thing: Is Everyone having as much trouble "cruising" as I am, with all this "mask business" going on? . . . I swear -- you really can't tell anything about a guy just by looking in his eyes -- except what color they are [ and who-the-hell needs THAT info?! ] . . . "Peace," Lustily, LIDELL ;>)

Policy & Procedures


The following FOUR paragraphs are for the sake of newcomers to the "Jacks of Color" Events & Parties:

  1.      For those of you who consistently refer to Our Jackss Of Color Web-Site -- it's been revamped by Our Web-Master.. DEVON, My Web-Master for Our JACKS OF COLOR WEB-SITE, has asked me to remind everyone of the following special situation . . . It seems some of you access the site, only to discover that it hasn't been updated -- well, it has! . . . But it seems that if you access the site through INTERNET EXPLORER or MSN , you don't get the full complement of features on the site -- and sometimes, you might even be directed to a previous version of the site, especially if you have an old bookmark in your browser . . . So Devon suggests that everyone use MOZILLA FIREFOX to access the site -- for some reason, that's the most complete Internet server for viewing ALL the features on the site, including the most updated info, PLUS the location info for BOTH "Paddles" and "Chelsea Space" . . . And again, Make A New Bookmark for JacksS OF COLOR right now, while you're reading this: www.JacksSOFCOLOR.com ! . . .
  2.      "Paddles" has a NEW entrance; the adjacent parking lot has been closed in preparation for construction of a high-rise -- so the new entrance to "Paddles" is DIRECTLY on the side street [ NO LONGER in the parking lot ], and merely inches beyond the orange barrier . . . You'll see signage that says "JacksS OF COLOR HERE TONIGHT" -- and if anyone has any problems finding it, call me on my cell at 646/441-7081 . . .

  3.      A word about "Last Call" -- I never really like the practice of ending a party by turning on the lights and throwing off the music at the appointed end of the night, without any warning -- seems to have a sort of "bum's rush" aspect to it . . . So near the end of every event I'm going to make sure that My Staff will announce a 30-minute "Last Call"; I think You Guys deserve the decency of knowing how long you have to, uh, "wrap things up"! . . .

  4.      And As is our custom, the location of each Jacks Of Color Party is ALWAYS placed on the club's web-site the day before, under "Party Notices / News" . . . And if you RSVP you're already on the list, so even if you don't get a confirmation, feel free to attend anyway -- just get the location info from the web-site, and be sure to come before the door closing . . . [ As a rule of thumb, it's always a good idea to check the web-site before coming anyway, just in case there's a last-minute change or cancellation -- it happens. ] . . . Lastly, feel free to call me on my cell -- 646/441-7081 -- during any party, in case you get lost, have to come late, etc. . . .
