Varsity Gay League Kickball, Summer ’14

The Varsity Gay League is an adult sports league that offers a variety of recreational sports programs. The Rock N Roll kickball league started playoffs this past weekend and I got to interview some of the other teams on how they were feeling going into their games. I play on the team Balls Are the…


I Don’t Know My Status

Being free, independent, and newly single, I was not looking for anything too serious. Hell, right after the breakup I wasn’t even looking for sex. The thought of being with another guy after three years and two serious, long term boyfriends was strange to me. I was timid and nervous in this new world of…

Glee depicted the dichotomy of mass vs. fem guys with closeted football player Dave Karofsky and flamboyant, theater star Kurt Hummel. Later, along with the development of mainstream gay culture, Blaine Anderson was introduced and seemed to be a mixture of both masculine and feminine qualities.

The Decay of “Masc v. Fem”

With the rudimentary structure of Grindr a few years ago, users were only offered one picture with limited text. Guys then had to get to the point and ask for exactly what they wanted. “No fems.” “Masc only.” “Chill bro looking for same.” The reason most of us got into this business of being gay…


Sleeping My Way Through Tel Aviv Gay Pride

When planning my 3 month vacation through Europe and the middle east I knew Tel Aviv had to be on the agenda. Tel Aviv has arisen as a gay oasis in a middle east that otherwise displays an openly hostile attitude towards the LGBT community. This can be partly attributed to a burgeoning economy centered…

Hoedown in Denver

If there’s one American city that seems to have seduced all of my friends into living there, it’s Denver.

I was so nervous that I didn't know how to place my feet or hands.

Visiting The Equality House and the Westboro Baptist Church

As my boyfriend and I drove through Kansas on our cross country road trip, we passed some crazy roadside attractions: Truckhenge (like Stonehenge but with Trucks and much less impressive), Prarie Dog Town, the Wizard of Oz Museum, the largest Czech Egg, and the 2nd Friendliest Yarn Shop in the World. We made stops at…


Gay Marriage: What Now?

As I was sitting outside with my friend Aaron (who is also gay), my phone buzzed in my pocket. Slightly tiffed that I had to interrupt my tanning session to respond to a text, I pulled it out of the pocket of my shorts to see who had messaged me. My brother. Strange, he doesn’t text…
