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…

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…

Slut-shaming an STD Poster

The office where I work just recently got new STD testing posters. At first I thought the posters were a clever way to get gay men to read the poster and get tested. They addressed all target markets including models of multiple races and they even used punny humor if you weren’t already sold by…

This is the face of pure evil.

Gay Men are Dangerous

“Watch your drinks. Don’t let anyone make you anything.” “Get ready to have orgies everyday.” “You’re going to come back covered in STDs.” This is what they told me before I left for my trip to the BVI, which I’m sure you’re tired of hearing about. My friends and family were worried that someone as…

Open Relationships

It’s no secret that the couples in open relationships are getting the most action here in the BVI and even though none of them are on my boat, we all hear the stories. We even hear that in the real world one of the couples allows each person to have sex with whoever they want…
