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…

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…

Jimmy Fowlie, Life After Gogo Dancing

I sat down with Jimmy Fowlie to talk about his new show “Gogo Boy Interrupted” that delves into the life of a former gogo, Danny Carter. Jimmy talks about his own experiences that fueled the project as well as life with a theater degree and working with director Jordan Black. “Gogo Boy Interrupted” goes up…

Washington DC, A New Gay Capital

When we think of the great American gay cities, more often than not our minds jump to New York, LA, and San Francisco. I had never before considered DC a major gay city until my friends who lived there told me I had it all wrong. Alumni from Georgetown and GW confirmed that every other…

“My Status is Not a Secret”

I sat down with John Saint-Denis and Ian Klein, the writing/directing/producing team behind their new documentary “STATUS” as well as their webisodes “Open” and “Knowing” concerning the aspects and issues of people living with HIV and in serodiscordant relationships.

Gay Guilt and “The Normal Heart”

Ever since coming out, gay men from the older generation have been trying to teach me about the travesty of the AIDS epidemic. “You don’t know how good you have it.” “You don’t know what it was like.” “You don’t appreciate how much we fought for you.” This kind of guilt may work for other…
