'My gay landlord mistakenly sucked my Grindr hookup's dick'
A bisexual guy shared the story of how his gay landlord ended up mistakenly sucking his Grindr hookup’s dick.
26-year-old Joe from San Francisco took to Reddit to explain the ‘wildest night’ of his life.
‘I scheduled to meet with a dude I met on Grindr over the weekend and we had only shared one pic,’ Joe wrote in a now viral post. ‘I guess over the weekend, he catches amnesia or something and completely forgets how I look.
‘Fast forward to 9:30pm and Kyle texts me that he’s at the door. I opened the door, didn’t see anyone and he had also completely ghosted me on text. I was sure at the moment I just got punk’d.
‘He calls me two minutes later and here’s when I get the climactic run down.

11 intimate portraits of the transmasculine community
A three-year odyssey across the United States to document the lives of trans men reaches bookshelves this month.
American Boys by photographer Soraya Zaman presents what its publisher describes as ‘intimate portraits of the transmasculine community.’
Zaman is an Australian non-binary, queer photographer based in New York. Through their work, they primarily explore notions of sexuality and gender.
Reflecting on the collection of 96 photos, Zaman says: ‘The binary days and the antiquated stereotypes of what it means to be born a girl or boy, are finally coming undone.
‘It is time we acknowledge the human race is more unique and special than these strict and simplistic ways of being which are not relevant to everyone.’

Anime Did Not Make My Son Gay
No, anime did not make my son gay. He’s bisexual, anyway. Anime didn’t “do” that to him either. I won’t link to certain places online that contain ludicrous opinions about how children can be “made” gay (or on the spectrum of LGBTQ) because of the friends they choose, the toys they play with, or the entertainment they enjoy. I won’t give those ignorant people more traffic. My son watched lots of shows, including anime. He is bisexual. My daughter watched lots of shows, including anime. She is straight. A study of n=2, but if you want to get into the latest science of why homosexuality is a natural expression of humanity, check out this article based on a TED talk by James O’Keefe. Back to anime.
When my children were young, I returned to college and befriended a group of geeks who introduced me to anime and manga. I distinctly remember seeing manga once in high school on Long Island in the ’90s: A Chinese exchange student brought in an oddly thick and small comic book. When I asked him about it, he explained that in Asia comics were books called “manga” and, even though cartoons were mostly for children in America, that wasn’t the case in Asia, where manga and “anime” were created for all age groups. I remember the cover looking a bit racy and he bashfully explained that this particular manga was definitely not for kids.
Shangela's Success Shows the Power of Queer Resilience
Shangela has come a long way.
This year alone, the performer had a role in the acclaimed film A Star Is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga — and became the first drag queen to walk the red carpet at the Oscars.
Additionally, Shangela made the LGBTQ community proud earlier this month by dancing and lip-syncing to a medley of Beyoncé songs — in front of Beyoncé at the GLAAD Media Awards. The now-viral performance was so excellent, even Queen Bey herself rose for a standing ovation.
Forgotten LGBTI heroes remembered in this author's powerful book
Five years ago, author Mason Funk was, well, in a funk. He couldn’t sleep.
Back in his youth, he was as ordinary as ordinary gets.
Los Angeles, California of the 70s was his home. The beaten Californian sun splashed the windshields of Sturz Blackhawk cars and Gulf petrol stands. Los Angeles Dodgers games dominated TV tubes.
A typical 70s good kid – part of a youth church group, straight As at school, always shouldering a smile – but Mason was gay. ‘What the hell was I going to do?’ Mason thought.
He was a gay teen flummoxed by his feelings. He had no clue how to express these feelings, but knew how to put on a pair of platform shoes and tight white pants to Dodger games.
‘Fast forward to five years ago, and I’m lying in bed with my husband,’ he told me over a trans-Atlantic call, ‘and I couldn’t stop thinking how my life got from there to here.
‘From the past to the present.’

Ben Whishaw Said Therapy Helped Overcome How He 'Hated' Being Gay
Ben Whishaw (Paddington, A Very English Scandal) has spoken out about struggling in the closet and how therapy helped the actor accept himself.
Although Whishaw is now open and comfortable with his queer identity, the gay actor revealed to The Sunday Times Magazine, a British outlet, that he once "hated" himself for who he was.
''There was a moment in my early twenties when I did not feel very good about myself," the 38-year-old actor stated in the March 24 interview. "It was to do with my sexuality and not knowing how to be myself and hating myself. I did know [my sexuality], I just couldn't tell anyone."
Whishaw entered a civil partnership with composer Mark Bradshaw in 2012 and said therapy "really helped him." After the actor came out officially in 2013, Whishaw was able to put his anxieties to rest.

This History of Gay Bars Is Also a Tale of LGBTQ Liberation
The new documentary San Diego's Gay Bar History surveys some of the 135 bars that have existed in the city and chronicles the various aspects of the LGBTQ community that have grown within them. Directed and produced by Paul Detwiler, the film has been released on the city's PBS station, KPBS.
The earliest example of a gay bar in San Diego came in the 1957, when straight ally Lou Arko bought the popular lunch club of the 1930's, the Brass Rail, and extended it into a meeting spot for gay people at night.
The post-World War II era heralded the opening of many more bars, catering to the independent men and women who had moved to the bustling port city for military jobs. During this time, when homosexuality was criminalized and it was even against the law for two men to dance together, the bars provided a meeting place for LGBTQ people who were otherwise isolated.

My Escape From The Evangelical Cult In Which I Was Raised Began At The Library
In 1997 when I was 16, sexual purity and abstinence-only culture was all I had ever known. I was the girl in the oversized jumper dress that hid my figure and my legs. I wore a silver purity ring on my right hand and a hunter green "What Would Jesus Do?" bracelet on my wrist. I didn’t use makeup or tampons. I didn’t kiss, hold hands, or date. I definitely never looked at my naked body if I could avoid it. I stood out in all the wrong ways, but this was my normal. And all of my homeschool friends were just like me.
In my evangelical cult, a woman’s path in life was clear: Get married, have children but not a career, keep quiet, be modest, and obey your husband. A man needed to make money and be in charge, and meanwhile, his wife would provide him with sex and care for his children. When a teen rebelled against their parents or a wife left her husband, it was commonly spoken of as a form of demon possession, and we prayed that the person under satanic oppression would be released. Spanking children as young 18 months old was encouraged, and strict discipline was expected. In fact, one pastor gave a seminar about which spanking methods and everyday household items produced the best obedience in children and teens. Ritualistic beatings were coded as loving discipline.
