An Open Letter to Tim Cook

July 17, 2013

    Dear Tim Cook, I recently wrote an article urging gay boys to read “Lean In,” Sheryl Sandberg’s advice book/feminist manifesto/memoir that encourages women to act like straight dudes in the office. Why? Because I know gay boys cut [...]


Lindsay Lohan is #Iconic

Not only is Alex Dimitrov my fave poet of the moment, he also has a great ass.

Lean In

“Lean In” Is the Gay Self-Help Book I’ve Been Waiting For

April 12, 2013

Straight Stuff For Gay Boys

March 12, 2013

  Right now, media offers the gays few entertainment options. Glee and Modern Family explore the-white-men-who-want-to-adopt-Russian-babies gay experience, and with the exception of the essentialist Rainbow Boys, publishers rarely release queer young adult novels. Gay teens turn to Ke$ha instead [...]


America’s Best Gay Pop Star Isn’t a Singer. He’s a Poet.

Britney Spears

A Brief History of Britney Spears’ Fake British Accent

February 26, 2013

  Over the weekend I went to visit my friend Abe in Brighton, England, the gay capital of the United Kingdom. Like gay clubs in America’s gay capital, Australia’s gay capital, Germany’s gay capital and every other Western nation’s gay [...]


Gay Boy Problems or Real Problems?

  Thanks to my immune deficiency, every few weeks I end up on bed rest watching documentaries about gay people and coughing up blood. My room permanently smells like a Halls cough drop, which sounds like a bummer but is [...]
