Singularly Horny

As much as we love Oprah, we don’t really connect with the media tycoon much beyond her excitement for cauliflower. Yet this past weekend, thousands of people forked over a lot of money to be in the presence of the Big O. But we personally know someone we’d much rather get advice from, including other types of Big Os. Hilarious, […]

Lies! All Lies!

We’ve all told fibs. Some, of course, might be considered way bigger than mere fibs. But dishonesty can be tricky and that’s a concept central to the stories in I Know You Know Who I Am, a collection of engaging fiction from gay author Peter Kispert. With 21 stories in total, some only a couple of pages and others much […]

Authorman

Don’t let the sun go down today without purchasing a book. Not just any book, but the first-ever official autobiography of superstar Sir Elton John. Titled simply Me, the hardcover tome makes a great companion piece to this year’s spectacular biopic about the legend. Filled with salacious details about his wild life and incredible career, it’s a must-read (or listen […]

Designed That Way

Which came first, the rainbow flag or the pink triangle? The Grindr logo or 2(x)ist underwear? If it’s queer and iconic, you’ll find it in the new LGBTQ history book, Queer x Design by Andy Campbell. Inside, discover the stories behind some of the most memorable symbols of the past five decades. By default, this chronological representation creates a pretty […]

He Wrote The Book On Gay

We can barely put together a bookshelf from IKEA. And it comes with instructions! Coming out, however, does not. At least not until now. Written from his own personal experiences, YouTuber Riyadh Khalaf has written a guidebook for young queer guys, but we think the lessons can apply to those coming out at any age. We still know people into […]

Stonewall Gets Graphic

Pictures make reading so much better! We think we might’ve actually made it through The Iliad with a few carefully positioned illustrations. But we don’t ever have to worry about epic poems for the rest of our life, focusing instead on reading only what we desire. Of course, our love of text-meets-pictures hasn’t waned, so that’s why our nightstand is […]

Let Them See Beefcake!

The big publishing news this week may be surrounding Howard Stern’s upcoming third book (which we’ve already pre-ordered, BTW), but a new gay book came out this week that caught our attention, too. Buying Gay: How Physique Entrepreneurs Sparked a Movement delves into a secret gay world of the 1950s and 1960s. Marketed as “physique magazines,” a new type of […]

The I Has It

In fashion, one day you’re in. And the next, you’re out. That Heidi Klum wisdom will some day live alongside Plato and Socrates carved into stone for future generations. Or at least we hope. But speaking of fashion and being out, last week I.M.: A Memoir was released and with it, so many secrets and stories from gay fashion designer Isaac […]

Superseeding All Snacks

When we see this list, we prepare for the worst: All Natural, Certified Gluten-Free, OU Kosher, Non-GMO, Vegan, Dairy & Soy Free, Low Sodium, USDA Organic. All those things strung together typically translate to “flavored cardboard.” But wow were we surprised when we bit into Absolutely Organic Superseed Crunch. The slightly sweet, crispy snack is made from golden flax, whole […]

Newell & Improved

Whether you loved it or hated it, Glee turned out several stars during — and now after — it’s six-season run. One of the most unexpected personalities to break through was Alex Newell. After getting a role on the reality casting competition, The Glee Project, he finished as first runner-up and received a two-episode role as Wade “Unique” Adams, the […]
