Hoedown in Denver

If there’s one American city that seems to have seduced all of my friends into living there, it’s Denver. Located in a state where pot is legal, outdoorsman-ship is encouraged, and dogs are everywhere, Denver has a west coast feel without being too laid back and feels down to Earth like the South without being…

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…

It was from Youngcons.com (Young Conservatives) and the title read “Matt Walsh’s “homophobic rant against Michael Sam” is absolutely brilliant.” I was confused because how could my friends like and comment on this link saying “Finally someone…

Straight Guys on Gay Teams

Last weekend I went down to San Diego to watch my friend Nickles play in the Surf and Turf Bowl for his gay flag football team. Gay recreational sports teams are the norm among a lot of my friends and they exist in most major cities. The bowl in San Diego would be a coming…

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…

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.…

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…
