    Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who was killed last week at the War Memorial in Ottawa, Canada, was laid to rest yesterday. Sexual harassment claims, leaked emails dominate last weeks of gay Republican Carl DeMaio's congressional race: "Maybe the only certain thing about the final weeks of the 52nd Congressional District race is that an angry former campaign staffer without a nondisclosure agreement is a major headache for Republican candidate Carl DeMaio. Todd Bosnich, DeMaio’s former policy director, says he was fired for telling DeMaio to stop sexually harassing him. DeMaio says Bosnich was…

    Activist David Mixner revealed on Monday that during the first decade of the AIDS crisis, he assisted in the deaths of eight people, including his lover of 12 years. The Daily Beast reports that Mixner, a former adviser to President Clinton, dropped the bomb during his one-man autobiographical stage show, Oh Hell No!, that in the late 1980s he’d been part of an underground euthanasia network who — because of a lack of medical care and government aid — felt compelled to take matters into their own hands. “AIDS was such a horrendous death,” Mixner says. “Some of…

    “I’ll never forget the first time Jesse, my partner, met my son Henry.” That’s how this formerly straight, single dad retells the story of introducing his new boyfriend to his kid. The introduction itself was uneventful, a trip to the grocery store, suggested by the gay dad’s ex-wife. What followed was a one-of-a-kind experience in blending […] The post Meeting Dad’s New Boyfriend appeared first on Confessions of a Boy Toy.

    Oh, great. The fundamentalists are going to have a field day with this one. A new study out of the University of Montréal has found that men who have sex with 20 or more partners during their lifetimes are less likely to develop prostate cancer. But there’s a catch: It only applies to straight guys. Gay men who bump uglies with 20 or more partners during their lifetimes are more likely to develop prostate cancer. Epidemiologist Marie-Élise Parent and her researchers surveyed more than 3,200 guys in the Montréal area who answered a comprehensive questionnaire that…

Writes Cook: While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me. Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day. It’s made me more empathetic, which has led to a richer…

I recalled my last night at the Ebola management center in Sierra Leone. I was called in at midnight because a 10-year-old girl was having seizures. I coaxed crushed tablets of Tylenol and an anti-seizure medicine into her mouth as her body jolted in the bed. It was the hardest night of my life. I watched a young girl die in a tent, away from her family. That’s where Kaci Hickox was,…

Much of this debate dates back to before the Harper’s issue appeared in stores — many of the commentators must either 1) have Harper’s subscriptions or 2) be able to access the piece online somehow.

Publicity for the film signals bisexual and queer content with two poster designs – the one we show here and another in rainbow flag colours. It does however play into the ‘queer people live tragic lives’ cliche: the bi and gay characters are an older man who has escaped from prison,…

There is a standard 15 day notice period for registering marriages in Scotland, so the earliest wedding ceremonies will be allowed happen on 31 December. That said, couples with extenuating circumstances may be able to get a shorter notice period by applying to the Registrar General. Same-sex marriages can…

I also noted how that judge, Max Coburn, was ultimately confirmed by a unanimous vote in the Senate. But I just thought of something else: There was a second U.S. District Judge, one William Osteen, who also ruled for marriage equality in North Carolina just days later. And this Judge Osteen?

But considering Arkansas' abbreviation is AR, NOM might want to go for a rewrite. Then again, the organization has absolutely no ties to this, a state that they are simply carpetbagging.

Now this same conjecture and video is the basis for a new NOM ad attempting to making US Senator Mark Pryor, who is on record as being opposed to same-sex marriage, into a faker.

She writes in “If the shoe fits…” that in the shoe store her family goes to, she and her partner Roo have always shown their kids “both the purple/pink/sparkly section and the blue/brown/orange/superhero section, and avoided labeling them by gender. As feminists it’s important to Roo and me to not close off gender options for either of our kids based on their sex.”…

    I can’t remember why I thought I needed some time to myself. It was not that I wanted time without her – that’s different – just time to myself. It would be good to get away – get lost inside my own head for the 6 hours it took to drive from here to there. To decompress. I could contemplate in uninterrupted certainty all the things that randomly crowd my mind – a road trip meditation of sorts. It would be good for me. It would be good for us. About one hour into the drive – past the congestion and construction of the city – I was starting to feel a quiet panic. A twinge of…

  • The Legend of Macomb Mall Vs. the Now

    Kage
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Some of my earliest memories are of a fascinating place mom and dad called ‘the mall’. More specifically, Macomb Mall. Mom would get me settled in the van, then we’d drive up there, usually to go to one of two card stores so she could stock up for future birthdays or events. I think she’s where I got my love of card shopping from. Not back then, though. I was bored with that crap and instead wanted to check out all 31 flavors at Baskin Robbins or meet dad and some of the guys he worked when they’d stop by the National Coney Island there. And if mom and I were at the mall during the…

So, first I’ll acknowledge that there are folks who need the money, who may not have families and want to work, or who have families and want to work anyway, or who just don’t mind working the wee hours of Black Friday after Thanksgiving. Okay? Is that fair to say? Well, that was sort of last year-ish when several places opened up ridiculously early on Black Friday. They’re off to beat their record this year with businesses announcing they’ll open their doors at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day. Yes, Thanksgiving Day. So, what about the other sides of…

    The news about so many states allowing gay marriage now—or at least being found unconstitutional to deny it to gay couples—seemed at first like a dream. How many of us (gay, straight, bi, trans) ever thought this would be a reality? The struggle for recognition and equality has been harsh and there’ve been some horrific fatalities along the way. Still, they’ve led to people’s eyes being opened a little at a time and it’s nowhere close to being done yet. Has it been worthwhile? I can’t speak for everyone—some within the GLBT community have made it clear they don’t believe in…

    The other day I had a rather unpleasant run in with a certain South African.  He is trying to launch himself into a porn career in the USA.  The whole experience left me quite perturbed about this guy’s life choices, the fantasy world he finds himself trapped in and his shortsightedness about his own future.  In all honesty, I felt sad for him.  But hey, it is not my business if someone I don’t even know well is fucking up their own life, right?  But this left me to wonder, do we ever think about the people who are in the porn movies we watch?  Who they…

There are plenty of other places around the world where people are not so lucky, and still face varying degrees of intolerance towards celebrating pride, or indeed cannot celebrate at all (I’m looking at you, Russia).

    5 Aug 2014 | 7:22 am
    As the last pieces of pageant gig are put away until next time, I’m able to truly reflect on my recent adventure to compete at E.O.Y. and what it meant to me to be onstage once more. I’m also able to realize what I can accomplish, how others support or do not, and if it’s all worth it at the end of the day. This is my journey to the Entertainer of the Year 2014 contest pageant event. Also known as E.O.Y. Enjoy the read. X I arrived to the airport at PSP on-time Tuesday and ready for the competition ahead. At the self-serve kiosk for American Air I checked my one suitcase…

    A Summer Full Of Peaches

  • Gratitude, lately

    Carley
    23 Oct 2014 | 10:23 am
    If this year has taught me anything, it is that you should never be too busy to stop, take a breath and just appreciate all you have in your life. These are just a handful of the things I am grateful for right now. I know it’s not quite thanksgiving yet, but anything you guys are particularly grateful for, this month? Carley
  • Fear of ostracism

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:51 am
    In my last post, I suggested that there might be more than one reason that I’ve been reluctant to blog recently. It’s something that’s been bothering me for a while, and more than that, something which has felt like an unbreachable wall between myself and some of the people that I’d normally go to with my concerns. I know that quite often, confronting fear is the only way to combat it’s power, and so I’m nervously tapping these words into a screen. I’ve been putting off blogging about my life … Continue reading →

    Confession: when I received the email reminding me that the A Summer Full Of Peaches domain was due for renewal, I thought about ignoring it. Not actively stating that I didn’t want to blog anymore, but instead just letting it lapse, disappear quietly into the ether. It was more than just a passing thought – particularly now that my job as warden in one of the University halls makes me even more aware of what I’m putting out into the internet. And yet, when it came down to it, I … Continue reading →

    I genuinely do not know where 2014 is going; June is more than half over, and that means we’re already halfway through the year. It also means that it’s now been more than six months since Stacey and I broke up, and I am finding it easier to talk about how my life has changed. My parents split up when I was a teenager, and one of the lessons my mum drilled into me in the following months and years was that I should never feel obliged to stay in … Continue reading →

  • Meeting Dad’s New Boyfriend

    Oscar Raymundo
    28 Oct 2014 | 3:44 pm
    “I’ll never forget the first time Jesse, my partner, met my son Henry.” That’s how this formerly straight, single dad retells the story of introducing his new boyfriend to his kid. The introduction itself was uneventful, a trip to the grocery store, suggested by the gay dad’s ex-wife. What followed was a one-of-a-kind experience in blending […] The post Meeting Dad’s New Boyfriend appeared first on Confessions of a Boy Toy.

    26 Oct 2014 | 3:38 pm
    Halloween is the only time of the year when gay guys can dress slutty and get away with it. Which I think is about the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. You should be able to get away with dressing slutty every night if you want to. It’s your goddamn prerogative. This week, we’re bound to […] The post Slutty Halloween Costumes for Hot Dudes appeared first on Confessions of a Boy Toy.

    “A man carries cash… A man can cook eggs… A man has had liquor enough in his life that he can order a drink without sounding breathless, clueless or obtuse… A man is comfortable being alone. Loves being alone, actually. He sleeps.” In 2009 Esquire magazine’s fiction editor, Tom Chiarella, wrote an essay for an issue dedicated […] The post What Is a Man? appeared first on Confessions of a Boy Toy.

    From quaint street fairs to city-wide bacchanals, the best way to experience local culture, excitement and tradition when you travel to a foreign destination is to go during a festival. If there is one thing travelers should not be afraid is getting lost in otherworldly splendor, and what better way to visualize that then with […] The post 8 World Festivals You Have to See to Believe appeared first on Confessions of a Boy Toy.

  • Bama Boi Blues: Transparent as Hell

    Kevin T
    28 Oct 2014 | 3:59 pm
    Here at BamaBoiBlues.com, I pride myself on being as transparent as possible, so that those who read any or all my posts see that we as gay men of color have layers, each more interesting than the last. In my opinion, I've revealed more about myself in over 150 blog entries than I have to my friends, family, and lover. Don't get me wrong, although I am proud to be an open book, I'm also afraid and paranoid about it at times.Over the years, blogging here has been my personal therapy session as well as a safe space for me to allow my often depressed thoughts roam free. Never did I think…

Like me, he was sort of a hopeless romantic, dealing with the struggles of being a minority because of his race and sexuality. Yeah, it didn't sound fun being a Hispanic homosexual in Texas. He ended up having to live with his brother because his parents at the time didn't accept his choices.We shared similar views about being gay, although he was more liberal and fluid in his sexual adventures, but that didn't mean I wouldn't gain anything from…

    It took about a month for me to reintroduce the Wellbutrin into my system. During my down time, I found it best that I not try and blog or do anything that would trigger further depression, not saying that every post on this blogs depresses me.It was a reality check. For odd reasons, I have an innate nature to completely stop taking my antidepressants at the peak moment of my mental health. I guess the thinking is that I've finally beaten depression, so to hell with those drugs. Very wrong to even think that way.I'm better, and I'm moving forward. I spent most of my time in seclusion;…

    Hey friends,I would like to apologize for slowly pumping out more content. As much as I'd like to push through it, I'm having a hard time with depression. It's mostly my fault because I haven't been taking my meds consistently. Words are sometimes hard to come by when describing my depression, and often find it best not to say much about it at all, that is, in my personal life.However, I'm trying to speak up more about it because it is a serious thing. The last thing I want to do is end up another blogger who has succumb to the idea of taking my life, and I just can't go out like that. Don't…

Messenger buddy is not as strong as I thought it was. I found myself going back to my old Ymail account to see if I could recover any past conversations, but I came up empty. I guess with battling demons of depression's past, I deleted all conversations. Knowing the old me, I probably didn't want any reminders of my former self, and I guess I didn't think I'd blog…

    Straight Paige (Gillian Jacobs, “Community”) and lesbian Sasha (Leighton Meester) are codependent best friends in their late 20s who have spent the last 10 years acting more like wives than friends: They talk to each other on the toilet; they drive each other to the doctor. And as with any good marriage, they’re a perfect yin and yang. Until the night Paige meets Tim (Adam Brody). Despite some superficial drawbacks (questionable facial hair, a penchant for quoting the movies everyone quotes), he’s the kind of guy you marry. As Paige and Tim’s relationship grows, the bond…

    BY BETT NORRIS Lesbian.com “Getting Over the Rainbow” by Danielle Ariano 92 pages (E-book only) $2.99 Danielle Ariano has written a wonderful memoir about coming out. Yes, we still need these stories. Of course we do, especially when they are as well-written and engaging as this book. “Getting Over the Rainbow” follows the author through the years beginning with her accepting her sexuality and ending with her wedding. This memoir immediately sends the reader to the nostalgia train back to one’s own coming out process. Sometimes painful in its honesty, (Ariano writes…

    BY MIKI MARKOVICH Lesbian.com Back in the late 70s, when most eight-year-olds were spending their days going to school, watching cartoons and maybe reading some “Sweet Pickles,” I was starting my first full-time job. Something about my mother’s third husband being one of Houston’s biggest drug dealers and her pouring boiling hot dog water on him during an argument being a bad idea. You know what they say: Life is in the details. Frankly, I was relieved to get away from the loud parties with live bands in the garage and naked revelers in our pool. And, after constantly sparkling from…

    BY JENNIE MCNULTY Lesbian.com Well, I can see why Jillian Michaels says she feels uncomfortable talking about being “out.” She doesn’t do it very well. But, maybe we should get off her back, unless you’re there adding weight for her push ups. Apparently, in an interview for Health magazine she said, “…The gay thing has always been hard for me. When Heidi (her partner) and I are out, and somebody older asks, ‘are we sisters?’ I say, ‘we’re friends.’ I guess it comes from thinking that they will be shocked or disturbed. Look I wish I had some strapping football player…

    BY HEATHER CASSELL Girls That Roam It was a warm weekend in the coastal town of Seaside on the Northern Oregon coast when women started arriving for the first annual EDEN Pacific Northwest. The women were excited as they unpacked their cars and wheeled their luggage into the Shilo Inn Oceanfront (30 North Promenade; 503-738-9571), the host hotel for the long weekend on the beach. The weekend attracted upward of an estimated 40 women, an intimate gathering for the first year of the all-girl getaway, but that’s what made it so unique. The women were ready for bonfires, laughing and dancing at…
