"It wouldn’t be long before my drug use trumped my gym schedule, and my status in online chat rooms devolved from intriguing hottie to that crazy mess that doesn’t look like his pictures."

My Muscles, My Disease: Portrait of a Gay Drug Addict

There is a folder, tucked within a folder, buried deep in my computer files. I shouldn’t be looking at its contents, yet I can’t bring myself to delete it altogether. It is labeled MARCUS, and inside the folder is my disease. During my years of crystal meth addiction I went by the name of Marcus, at least to dealers and tricks and fellow addicts. It helped me determine who was calling my cell phone – those calling for Mark or Marcus usually had very different agendas – and Marcus even

Let’s hear it for the neggies

In an idea shamelessly borrowed (OK, stolen) from Mark S. King of My Fabulous Disease, Bob Leahy joins in singing the praises of our negative brothers.

I don’t know, so much time, so much energy is concentrated on us pozzies that negative guys (aka neggies) must sometimes feel left out, no? When we do acknowledge their existence, nine times out of ten it’s in the context of condom usage, sexual health or risk behaviours. Bleh.

I miss Glee. I miss Kurt in particular. There, I’ve said it

I miss Glee. I miss Kurt in particular. There, I’ve said it. There is a popular misconception held about blogging that one needs to find things to write about, that every post needs to be about something important. Or whitty. Or both. I’ve long thought otherwise. I’ve made a blogging career, in fact – seven years and over three thousand entries - out of writing about nothing. Or about something, but those somethings have seldom been important or whitty. Well maybe once. In actual fact,
