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 […]

Star-Cross’d Gay Lovers

There’s nothing like a good book. Especially when somebody else is reading it to you. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Shakespeare’s epic romantic tragedy, Romeo & Juliet, gets a gay update on Amazon’s Audible platform. Romeo & Jude, a modern-day re-imagining, features an all-star voice cast, including Owen Teale (Game of Thrones), Matthew Tennyson (Pride), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock, […]

No More Plain Vanilla

The last time we had something over a hundred years old in our kitchen, she died. (R.I.P., Nana.) But now our spices have new friends on the rack—vanillas and flavor extracts from Nielsen-Massey. The company has been crafting superior products since 1907 and they’re easily the best we’ve ever used. They sent us a couple bottles in the mail and […]

Shop Online For Good

We’re in the loop on a lot of things. But sometimes we find ourselves so out of the loop, it’s scary. Take AmazonSmile, a service of Amazon.com that benefits your favorite charity without you having to do a thing. It’s been around for more than a year, yet we didn’t know about it until we received a pop-up ad touting […]
