The Power of LGBTQ History

I figured I’d share a special story from my time as a reporter in Palm Springs. Each news station I’ve worked at has brought me one or two memorable pieces, but none of them beats this one. If you’re not aware,...

Circuit Overload

I write this editorial with extreme caution because I see so much good and so much bad evolving within the circuit scene, but don’t want my words to taint others views. My opinions represent my own experiences,...

Sporting a Boner

My high school years were quite the blur, but I did my best to save some of the best memories to reminisce on for the future if and when I would ever feel the need to be sentimental. My memory bank was mostly f...

More Than Just Friends

I’m unafraid to say I’m a very sexual person. I keep telling myself and others, it’s how most gay men function. I think many of us are afraid to admit it because we’re still scarred from decades of being pushed...
