Swimwear to Accenturate Your Assets
Shake what your mama gave you in a kaleidoscope of prints and patterns prepped to get soaking wet | By Mikey Rox
Step onto any gay beach – from Miami’s Haulover to Asbury Park’s 5th Ave. to Will Rogers Beach in Los Angeles – and you’ll bear witness to a veritable catwalk of loosey-goosey board shorts, fitted trunks, and skintight Speedo-like swimwear. While anything goes on the summer’s sandy shores – especially if the area is clothing optional (better pack those dark lenses!) – this year’s styles continue last year’s thighs-the-limit trend with a twist: Button-closure shorts with waist-specific sizing. Here we cultivate some of the more stimulating designs for 2017 with a smattering of tradition tossed in for good measure.
WICHITA - The Friends of the Wichita Art Museum are getting ready for the 58th Annual Art and Book Fair May 13-14.

It runs from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 11am-5pm on Sunday at the Wichita Art Museum, 1400 W. Museum Blvd.
WICHITA – Grammy award-winner Melissa Etheridge brings her summer tour to Wichita’s historic Orpheum Theatre on Sunday, July 23. It will be the first time the Kansas born and raised singer has ever played in Wichita.
