Gay NY couples buck tradition in pre-knot bashes
In NY, some gay bachelors and bachelorettes throw bashes that buck heterosexual tradition
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Days before New York's first gay weddings, some couples are holding traditional bachelor parties and showers while others are putting twists on tradition.

John Feinblatt says his mother would kill him if he didn't have a dinner for family and friends.

Feinblatt is New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's chief policy adviser. Bloomberg will officiate at his wedding on Sunday. That's the first day legal same-sex marriages can be performed in New York.

Jon Paul Buchmeyer and Juan Pablo Chavez caved to pressure from friends and have consented to a shower before their wedding next year.

In the village of Sharon Springs, inn manager Heidi Meka says the owners don't plan to have a bachelor party because they've already been together for 26 years.
