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…

One of My Least Desirable Qualities

I’m not a dog person. People cringe when I tell them. I lose more friends over not being a dog person than I do over being gay. Torture to me is someone holding their phone up to my face and swiping through hundreds of photos of their dog walking, breathing, and slobbering all over the…

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…


The Lost Chapter

I wish he didn’t live in DC. If he lived in LA this would be absolutely perfect. I think back to the first time I met him. We hadn’t even kissed before I asked him to room with me. He was it. I knew it. I wish I could meet him over and over again.…


LA Gays vs. DC Gays

The guys I immediately bonded with from the trip were from LA, however most of the guys on the Gay Armada were from DC and it took me some adjustment to understand how they worked. It was interesting to hang around them and take note of how different the conversations were and how life back…

Thankfully I made a flight otherwise I would have missed this fantastic view.

The Gay Armada: Part One of Many

I overslept for my flight at 8 AM. I hadn’t packed until the night before and I thought it would be a good idea to pack all night, pull an all-nighter, and then sleep on the plane. Obviously, by any normal person’s standards, that’s a terrible idea. How long could it possibly take to pack…

Confessions of a Callous Cuddler

It’s happening. We’re finally happening. We had one of the same majors back in college, but only knew of each other from across the room. Colton was a big frat star back in the day and I was that kid who raised his hand all the time in class. Nothing seemed likely to happen, until…

If JBiebs were to embrace hyper femininity it would look ridiculous, meaning it's a form of expression that men are not allowed.

Male Artists and the Fear of Femininity

This year Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at the Super Bowl Halftime. Writers, bloggers and the online community are raving about how this performance was one for the ages, but I couldn’t help but feel… well… bored. Bruno wore nearly the same exact outfit he wore to last year’s Grammy’s. There…
