The boys from The City of Brotherly Love have done it again with a new sex-positive ad campaign aimed at reducing HIV and STD transmission, and it is definitely an attention grabber.
Pleasure Rush is a new project sponsored by The Gay and Lesbian Latino AIDS Education Initiative (GALAEI), a non-profit organization in Philadelphia focusing on quality of life issues in the Latino LGBT community. Pleasure Rush “[seeks to] capture the attention of individuals who are desensitized to current HIV prevention messages that focus solely on getting tested or knowing your status,” said Elicia Gonzales of GALAEI. The project includes video campaigns and parties to promote positive images of safer sex.
The campaign kicked off with it’s fist “What If” encounter video series that looks at a Craiglist-type hookup and the decision to use or not to use a condom. The video is posted below after the jump and while there is nothing graphic, it’s definitely NSFW. The video is turning heads and having some saying that it sends a wrong message from an HIV/AIDS organization. Read more…
In honor of Fathers Day, we’re taking a look at the other gay dad that also deserves some Hallmark Holiday lovin: the gay Daddy.
I don’t know why but there are a lot more daddies on the dating scene lately. It may be due to the aging of a gay generation, or that bear and gay hipster scenes are becoming more popular as guys move away from the shallow, youth-obsessed A-List gay drama. Whatever the reasons, gay daddies are making a comeback and the younger men who like them are taking notice.
So what exactly is the fascination that some gay men have with a gay Daddy? Does it really just boil down to a daddy/father-figure complex or is there something more?
Clint is a handsome, muscular gay man in his mid 40’s with salt and pepper hair. He works out, takes care of himself, and has been dating several young men lately ages 19 to 24. In case you’re wondering, Clint met a lot of these younger guys on Grindr.
When I asked Clint about being a dating Daddy he said, “I love that someone so young and good-looking is even interested in me. It’s flattering, and it makes me feel like a lion in a pride. Read more…
After my hangover from the weekend finally subsided, I was able to put most of the pieces from Van’s farewell bash together in my head. Sure, there was the confrontation and follow up phone call with Matt, but there was also the Scotsman nicknamed Scotty who I was somehow able to flirt with in my drunken haze such that he invited me out on a date the following Thursday night.
Date night arrives, and Scotty shows up at my door. He’s as handsome as I remember him being with jet-black hair and brown eyes. Not a ringer for Sean Connery but a definite inheritor of the rugged good looks characteristic of Scottish men.
Actually, I don’t have anything to say on Congressman Weiner unless it comes out that he was tweeting Chi Chi LaRue. BUT if my Grandma were alive, she’d say something alright; and it would go something like this:
Now I done came out of the comfort of my house while my stories are on, because I heard you all talking in the street about that Congressman Weiner, and I’m telling you, that you need to take that hypocritical foolishness someplace else and from in front of my house.
I see you little Elliot Spitzer, and while you may think I don’t know who you are, I know you and know you ain’t worth shit; out there in the streets running around them fast gals who’ll open their legs for any man.
And you, little Donald Trump. You think that anybody on this block done forgot the time when your wife moved out and took half your things with her, cuz you fooled around on her with the gal who became your second wife; who up and did the same thing to you too?
That’s right. I know all you hypocrites and I’m telling you right now, as God is my witness if you boys don’t get from in front of my house with your foolishness, I will come off this porch and beat you till you run home and tell your mommy!
Hi there my lovelies! Sorry I’ve been away from the blog for the past few weeks. I’m well aware that posting a music video doesn’t count as blogging but there has been a lot going on lately.
Work has been extremely busy, and because I’m not happy being lazy, I’ve also taken this time to complete some home projects. And don’t forget my birthday, which is happening in less than 30 days and will squarely put me in the mid-thirties category when I turn 35.
With all of this going on I’ve been a little stressed lately; which also explains why I felt like I was kicked in the gut the other day when I didn’t get picked up by a cab.
One flew by me, the second refused to open the door, and the third told me that he was going to get gas and that I should take the second cab because he was in front of him anyway (cabs 2 and 3 were stopped on the street waiting for the light to turn green).
Needless to say, the cab drivers were black. If you want to make the distinction, they were African. Still, I kept standing and waiting for a cab to stop … Read more…
