Glamonster takes the stage as a burlesque dancer on the move

Glamonster takes the stage as a burlesque dancer on the move
“If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” Those words were made famous by the ever lovely RuPaul, and ¬†she has a point. How can you be happy and in love if you can’t even be who you really are? It’s why I admire people who live openly and... Read more »

Orlando: Sorting through my emotions

Orlando: Sorting through my emotions
At this point in time, most people have already spoken their thoughts and feeling regarding the mass shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando. I am not sure how so many people have expressed their feelings so quickly. I know some came from a place of only hurt, others only anger, some a combination... Read more »

Cockblocked by CVS: Not every neighborhood is Boystown

Cockblocked by CVS: Not every neighborhood is Boystown
I recently moved from Boystown-adjacent to not-so-Boystown-adjacent. The move has been excellent thus far. Since there are no bars around, I’m saving so much money by drinking alone in the basement. Also, not living near of one of the best gayborhood’s in the country has made me a slightly more responsible adult. Of course, with... Read more »

Grindr down: gay panic tweets (Part 2)

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Grindr is down and I&#39;m currently getting hit on via Facebook chat. The gays will always find a way.</p>&mdash; James Lohan Jenner (@james_lohan) <a href="">January 31, 2016</a></blockquote> <script src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>
Grindr, the gay social networking app, has been down for almost eight hours. Earlier today, I published some of the most hilarious tweets in regards to gays not being able to connect with likeminded people near them. However, shit is real now. It’s Saturday evening, and gays are looking for the love of their life... Read more »

Grindr is down, gay panic takes over Twitter

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Grindr is down.<br><br>The gay empire falls into chaos with twinks being the first to die</p>&mdash; SATAN (@chrismegrath1) <a href="">January 30, 2016</a></blockquote> <script  src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>
The gay social networking app Grindr is currently suffering a server outage. This means that gay and really confused straight men are unable to log-in and see how close their nearest counterparts are. This is sad news because the gay world has relied on Grindr for almost seven years to communicate. Due to this dependence,... Read more »

Boylesque with Ben D. Mann brings superhero show to a lap near you

Though the cast is all male, the host is the fantastic local celebrity Melissa Young.
Note: In the interest of being fair, I feel I should say up front that the producers and a few of the performers of the below show are friends of mine. Therefore, this is more of an informative post rather than a review. When you think of burlesque shows, you probably think of girls dancing... Read more »

Duggars "help" raise over $20,000 for LGBT youth

Duggars "help" raise over $20,000 for LGBT youth
Almost everyone is familiar with the ultra-conservative Duggar clan in Arkansas. The Duggars have a history of exploiting their many children for profit (i.e. TLC’s 19 and Counting), and most recently have revealed that they hold a place in their heart for homophobia. Though I do not believe the Duggars being homophobic was a shock... Read more »
