My Big Gay Birthday: Too Ordinary To Be Real

Sunday was my 27th Birthday. That’s right, I’m middle-aged in the gay world. Despite it being one of the biggest weekends of the gay calendar (gay prides, anniversary of SCOTUS ruling), it was a relatively quiet day for me. I woke up and got ready to go to church by myself, no interruptions. My family…

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”…

The Publicist Made Me Do It: Noah Galvin’s Apology

It’s been a while since I’ve written about a ‘current event,’ but this deserves a spotlight. The Base Article On June 9th, vulture.com released the article “Noah Galvin Has Nothing to Hide.” I barely follow along with vulture.com periodicals, and I don’t even know who Noah Galvin is, but the article made its way all…

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…

Advice on Talking To Celebrities: Never Tweet Sitcom Antiques

I had reservations about writing this particular post. My boyfriend, Perseus, urged me to “stop trolling” and write about something else, but I really can’t shake it off. If I just wait for the time when it stops bothering me, I’ll only end up wishing I had written the post (solely because I hold grudges longer…

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…

You Don’t Even Go Here: Throwing Massive Shade At Church

A prime place to people watch is at Church. Despite accepting people from all walks of life and preaching that God is the only One that will judge you in your afterlife, there’s a lot of shade being thrown in Church to those who aren’t comformitive or a bit odd. Me, being a gay Catholic,…

That’s So Gay: The Hyper-Sensitivity of The Phrase

I was at a birthday party with my closest friends. Tori was turning 21 and was throwing a house party that will turn into a bar hopping party at the stroke of midnight. Tori was more my friend’s friend, but her and I had met often before and were on joking terms with each other,…

Did Someone Order A Bride: My Brother’s Obsession With Marriage

“So wedding preparations are going well.” “Who’s?” “Mine.” And that’s how my brother told my father he proposed to his girlfriend. Joey’s first wife was a tallish Asian girl who my father’s cousin introduced to him nearly a decade ago. She had a pretty face, in shape, talentless and as dumb as bricks. Once, she failed…
