DISMANTLING HATE

This month on IN THE LIFE they talk to hate crime victims and perpetrators about The Nature of Hate. Followed by a visit with artist Alix Smith, who is traveling the country photographing hundreds of same-sex couples, challenging stereotypes and taking conventional portraiture to a new level. As has been the case for many social and political…

¿EARTH DAY?

So today is ‘Earth Day’ and I can’t help but feel sorry for us because we dedicate just ONE day to place we’ve lived our ENTIRE lives! This day is seen in the SAME vain as going to church on Sunday…we pat ourselves on our collective backs so that we can feel better about sinning…

GAY BTW

I’ve resigned myself to the fact persons within this society will FOREVER show their ignorance when it comes to homosexuality. However, there are moments when I forget that they are unaware and the things that come out of their mouths just stop me in my tracks. Most of things that are being said are by…

SEX, BAD SEX & REALLY BAD SEX

You’ve probably done it; you’re driving home late at night feeling disappointed – or worse.. Maybe you’re pounding the steering wheel and shouting at yourself. You just finished sex with someone and you’re sorry you did it.  You know the bumper sticker that says that the worst day at the beach is better than the…

¿WHY ARE GAYS BETTER @ ONLINE DATING?

The most likely place to meet your mate is no longer the office; it’s the Internet — especially if you’re shopping for a same-sex love. A recent university study found 61% of gay and lesbian couple participants met their mate online. The Stanford sociology study focused on couples who met and became involved in the…

FORGET TO FORGET: 31 TO 21

Isn’t it funny how life sometimes causes you to remember to forget, but never forget to forget? I came upon this first-hand a few weeks ago when I saw the Managing Director from my first job where I was fired for being gay. I was walking towards my car and I heard this person shouting…

SWALLOWING SEMEN IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

Doctors had never suspected a link between the act of fellatio and breast cancer, but new research being performed at North Carolina State University is starting to suggest that there could be an important link between the two. In a study of over 15,000 women suspected of having performed regular fellatio and swallowed the ejaculatory…

THE FATHER, SON & UNHOLY GHOSTS

We are not alwaysthe bravest sonsour fathers dream.Nor do they alwaysdream of us.We don’t alwaysrecognize himif we have neverseen his face.We are suspiciousof strangers.Question:is he the one?iiI stand waist deepin the decadence of forgetting.The vain act of looking the other way.Insisting there can be peaceand fecundity without confrontation.The nagging question of blood hounds me.How do…

FEM GAY MEN VS. BUTCH LESBIANS

The other day I was @ the gas station and I noticed two females having a conversation. As I looked @ them I could tell that they were of the lesbian persuasion by the way they were dressed and how they carried themselves…not to mention the conversation was about their relationships and how they are…
