7 Gay Fashion Rules Every 20-Something Guy Should Follow

Women always say that it is easier for men to shop, and straight men claim that there is nothing left for them to buy since all the fast-fashion retailers have turned their focus from straight to gay guys and are now catering to their fashion needs. To some extent, this is actually true – gay guys now have plenty more fashion options, options that reflect their style. Still, when you are in your twenties, you are bound to make mistakes, especially due to the abundance of choices that can quite often be the wrong ones. That is why we...

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9, EP 5 Recap

Hello hello hello, ladies and gays! This episode was a doozy at the very last second. I literally ugly cried. But, there was a whole lotta episode first. Back in the work room after last week’s elimination, Trinity wastes no time erasing Charlie’s lipstick message. Trinity asks something that I think has been on everybody’s mind: “Why didn’t charlie put up a fight?” Does anyone know? Basic Google research finds: she had a broken rib. Ooh. When asked what it was like to be thrown under the bus by her teammates. Trinity responds: “I was the team captain. And,...

A Gay Bashing Happened To Me: Here’s What I’ve Learned

I am a gay man in his mid-twenties who resides in Los Angeles, perhaps one of the most seemingly socially liberal cities in the country.

Even while growing up in upstate New York and visiting my boyfriend’s family in the rural midwest, never before have I experienced aggression or hatred directed towards me...

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9, EP 4 Recap

Hello hello hello, ladies and gays! A little RuCap: We’ve lost two queens so far. Last episode, we lost Kimora Blac, the Las Vegas beauty queen who bravely bore both her soul and her ass. I think the other queens are starting to sense that Aja, who survived last week’s lip sync, isn’t actually self-confident. She’s self-conscious. And, in an attempt to portray the former, she’s started to take out her insecurities on the other queens. Mostly she takes it out on my love, Valentina… I always look for Shea. She seems to be the voice of the workroom,...

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9, EP 3 Recap

Hallelu, and hello hello hello, ladies and gays! The competition has now really started! One queen down. Last time, Jaymes Mansfield was eliminated in a lackluster lip sync battle to B-52’s “Love Shack” against Kimora Blac. It’s early on in the season, and it still seems too obvious who the tops and bottoms are. However, it’s not obvious not to all of queens themselves… Kimora is shocked about her “underdogged” status: Her being “A 10 to (Jaymes’) 1”. It’s disappointing, Kimora finds her value in the competition solely from her looks. She feels she’s very beautiful, and she feels...
