My Best Friend’s Wedding: The Gay Has Arrived

Heading into my best friend Tinker’s wedding last Friday, I didn’t know what I expected. I was JUST A GUEST at my best friend’s wedding, and I didn’t know how to take it. To say the very least, I was extremely pissed that I wasn’t part of the wedding party. I’m closer to the bride, but…

Brexit Like Beckham: What The Hell’s Going On?

Late in the night of June 23rd (for us Americans), the United Kingdom announced their final tally to leave the European Union. With 51.9% of the 33m+ votes, the Leave campaign can hardly call it conquering the Remain campaign. I won’t pretend to be an expert in UK politics, or politics of any nation, but…

Remembering Phone Numbers: A “Wrecked” Truth

Back Story A guilty pleasure of mine is watching everyone’s Snapchat stories. I try to at least skim through every single slide, but sometime it’s a little much (I’m looking at you, Spencer Pratt). But one person I always watch ‘cover to cover’ is Colton Haynes. It’s not that he just “came out” or anything,…

Answering the Awkward: Questions for a Gay Guy

Originally, I wanted to write a “## Things Gay Guys Hate to Hear,” but I was pretty sure that it’s been done. As I Google’d it, the first one that popped up was by BuzzFeed (of course) in February 2014. So in this post, I’ll just go through “20 Things Gay Guys are Sick of Hearing”…

We Remember June 12: Can Our Pulse Beat As One?

As a gay blogger, I feel that I have the responsibility to write about the ‘2016 Orlando Nightclub Shooting,’ as Wikipedia has labeled it. This post’s sole purpose is not to be informative because you can look up-to-date information about it for yourself. Information about the tragedy is still organic — growing and changing by the…

How Do You Want It: Turn Ons

My dad has an addictive personality. When my brother and I showed my dad how to play roulette down in New Orleans, he wanted to continue playing even after we came back home, using nearly 13k at the ‘local’ casino. When my mom got him an iPhone, he finally joined the 21st century and obsesses…

Suited for Anxiety: Pressure of Shopping Alone

It’s wedding season. Being in my 20s mean that I have the distinct pleasure of seeing all my friends get married. But being an atypical gay (and not particularly working), I don’t have that much dress-up clothing. So it’s off to the store for me. Now, I have a few suits from the past. I…

The Hard Truth: The Importance of Being Penis (NSFW)

How do you describe your penis? Is it long, short or average? Thick, thin or veiny? Curved to the left, right or up? Cut, uncut or weirdly cut? Is your knob pointed, blunt or pear-shaped? Is it tan, purplish or uni-colored all over? And don’t even get me started with the balls. Whether gay or…

There’s One In Every Family: Story of the Flaming Duck

The “G” Word In August, my cousin Cici is getting married. Now, a steady stream of gossip flows throughout the extended family on an off-season, but when funerals and weddings are in the midst, the gossip increases tenfold. There’s speculation, questions, feelings and history that must be taken into account as the gossip flourishes to…

Dreams: Tom Daley & the Permanent Marker Fail

Dreams What are dreams? Back when I was in 6th grade, I had to read numerous books on mythology for a handwritten 26-page report, including The Sorcerer’s Companion: A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Besides being very keen on Harry Potter and the magical world,…

What Is This Feeling?: The Rocky Road Through My First Gay Crush

Every gay guy gets asked this. And often, they don’t have an answer. What sort of questions would instill a sense of speechlessness from a gay individual? Did you always know you’re gay? Honestly, I am somewhat disappointed that none of my friends have questioned me on this topic. But it’s not like I would…
