Brunch Of The Week: DIY (Drag-It-Yourself)

If we were ever on death row, our last meal would be brunch. Eggs benedict, a side of crispy bacon and enough bottomless mimosas to make the electric chair fun. Hopefully, it’ll never come to that, but we like to always have a plan. For our Brunch of the Week selection today, we’re featuring something very different—a home-cooked feast from […]

A Vacation On Your Coffee Table

Summer, summer, wherefore art thou going, summer? With prime vacation season more than halfway over, we’re starting to have FOMO about all the places we’ve didn’t have a chance to get to this year. Fire Island has long been on our bucket list, but if our recent trip to Provincetown is any indication, we may have aged out of a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Got Milk?

Happy (hopefully) Election Day! We won’t really know how to feel until later tonight or even tomorrow, but with politics on the brain, it’s perfect timing for a new book that chronicles how one man changed everything for our community. The Children of Harvey Milk by Andrew Reynolds chronicles how new generations of LGBT politicians have made and continue to […]

When Arthur Met Ben

Just when the world feels like it can’t get any bleaker, we get a reminder that there is love all around us. Sometimes easy to obtain, other times difficult. Today, the book we all need in our lives comes out. What If It’s Us brings together queer YA fiction superstars Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homos Sapiens Agenda) and Adam Silvera (They […]

From Russia With Lust

Now this is some Russian collusion we could get behind. Or in front of. Or both. As a gay man from the Republic of Kazakhstan growing up in Russia, Alexander Abramov experienced more than his fair share of discrimination in varying degrees, from the usually trolling online to some rather scary threats of physical harm. Even death. So after moving to New […]

Darkness Falls, But There’s Always Light

J. Ronald M. York has a few stories to tell. (Not to mention a few extra initials in his name!) The tremendously gifted writer recently debuted a follow-up to his debut memoir, Kept in the Dark, in which he delves into one of his family’s darkest secret. His Boy Scout troop leader dad had been imprisoned for sexually abusing a child. Though […]
