The Gay Hostel, Berlin

While preparing to study abroad in London last fall I decided I wanted to take a weekend trip to Berlin. It was a combination of the infamous club scene, my love for German men, and the brutish post WWII architecture that made the city so alluring (not to mention my love for Currywurst). The summer…

A Sincere Thank You

Just over a week ago I received an e-mail with the subject “A Sincere Thank You.” I’ve gotten a lot of wonderful messages, but I felt like this one was worth sharing to really show the power in our stories. It’s one of the best messages I’ve ever received and with his permission, he’s allowed…

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…

BVI, here I come!!!

Life as a Marilyn in a Man’s World

Girls. I’m obsessed with them and always have been. They were my best friends growing up. They were the ones I could relate too. The ones I could understand.

Knowing Barcelona was better integrated, I took my new friend out to enjoy the nightlife despite her protests that she doesn’t dance…

The Sound of Music in Salzburg

I came to Salzburg thinking that the Sound of Music tour would be the gayest thing I did while in the city. But in fact I ended up meeting a gay married couple staying in my hostel room. “I just don’t think I’m wild enough. I keep thinking that maybe I should be taking advantage…

BEARlin and the Gay Posse

My old college roommate (I’ll call him Luke) met up with us in Berlin so I had some help investigating the gay scene this week. I really enjoyed the Berlin gay population and checked out two bars in particular that I really enjoyed. Schwuz is an underground dive bar with a cheap cover and two dance…

I Love London

I love London. Always have. With my dad being British, I’ve visited many times. But this was the first time that I paid special attention to the gay scene and this is what I observed. FASHION Overall guys are extremely well dressed. Every guy I saw had a different style shoe, an interesting layer, and/or…
