Nothing gay about Tennessee Schools

published: April, 28, 2011 Categories // Opinion Pieces

Danny Miler doesn’t like what he sees happening in southern schools, where discussion of homosexuality is outlawed.

So here in the United States of America, the southern states, (those below the Mason Dixon line) are known throughout history as being very intolerant of minorities. Thosestates are also notorious for being anti-gay, and now one state in particular, Tennessee, has taken this to a whole new level of ridiculous-ness! Earlier this year the Tennessee state senate introduced the “Don't Say Gay” bill, which would, make it unlawful to say the words “gay” and “homosexuality”, or even

We get to meet Mark S King’s doctor, who walks us through what to look for in finding HIV and primary care

Six Tips for Choosing your HIV Doctor

I had to say goodbye to my doctor recently. I was moving out of state, and Dr. David Morris of Pride Medical Group in Atlanta had been nothing but a patient, supportive teacher to me. Over the years he’s seen me through Hepatitis C, a few crystal meth drug relapses and three boyfriends. I love him and what he’s done for me, and I hated the prospect of finding a replacement in Florida. Fortunately, Dr. Morris agreed to give me some tips to make the process easier, and in this video episode

My bumpy ride through internet dating

Single guy Wayne Bristow documents the trials and tribulations of looking for love in all the wrong places

I recently started my twenty-first year being out of the closet. Yaaaay! It was a new start to my life, back on the dating scene, but where to look? Twenty-one years later, why am I still single?. Friends and family tell me I'm a really nice guy and many other positive things that I should feel great about. Always the friend, never the boyfriend, it seems. Before there were all these internet chat-rooms and dating sites, we had a telephone line that we could place an ad on and then wait for re

Billy Elliott in Toronto - The Musical

Because it’s been playing in Toronto for several months, a “straight “review would be all but redundant. So Bob Leahy does a gay review instead.

Billy Elliott in Toronto - The Musical

Sorry, it has taken so long to review this one. Normally, I’m very prompt; reviews I post here are often published the day after opening night. But these particular tickets were a Christmas present, bought not for opening night, but for when better seats were available. As in this past Tuesday. Before sizing up its gay content, let me review the show first in more general terms. Let me say right up front that I was not quite as gaga about it as some reviewers, famously the Dai

The (Shirtless) Boys of Randy Blue in a Tribute to Kylie

  Not sure if there is any point to this post other than the chance to ogle a bunch of cuties with their shirts off. Come to think of it, that's as good a reason as any, no?

Valentines Love Notes by D. George

published: February, 13, 2011 Written by // Guest Authors - Revolving Door Categories // Guest Authors

What became of the seemingly carefree joy, reveling laughter, blissfully amorous kisses at the stroke of midnight only 6 weeks earlier?

Let’s play Jeopardy!  Answer: A score of zero in tennis.  Question: What is love? If only it were that simple, right?  Days of Auld Lange Syne barely forgotten and Baby New Year is already confronted with what appears to be somebody’s cruelly calculated idea to schedule a holiday causing many to grapple with self-analysis on the scales of life’s love meter.  What became of the seemingly carefree joy, reveling laughter, blissfully amorous kisses at the stroke of midnig

Greg Halpen says "your vulnerability might be getting in the way . . "

Being a sensitive and vulnerable gay man can be freeing, but it might also be your downfall too.

  Wouldn't you think that being a vulnerable gay man would put you steps ahead in attracting Mr. Right? After all, being 'vulnerably liberated' makes you want to connect more. Makes you want to share every part of yourself, and you just can't wait to do it.  Isn't being comfortable with exposing your soul the main point?  Yes and no. Being a sensitive and vulnerable gay man can be freeing, but it might also be your downfall too. In society men are taught to hide their feelings a

Durham Conference on Ageing: Queers Growing Older Gracefully

published: November, 04, 2010 Written by // Bob Leahy - Publisher Categories // Events, Bob Leahy - Publisher

In which the ever-youthful Bob Leahy reports on the issues facing queer seniors today, and interviews the featured speaker and PositiveLite blogger Devan Nambiar

First off, kudos to The AIDS Committee of Durham for organizing this event. In all my years of involvement in the HIV community I’ve never seen an event which wrapped its collective mind around the issues surrounding an aging GLBT population so well. . We are, let’s face it, a community that’s a little bit obsessed with youth. I guess some in fact would label anyone over 30 as old. As Devan Nambiar pointed out, periodicals like fab and XTRA have virtually no coverage involving GLBT

Spending Halloween on Church Street.

In which country bumpkin Bob Leahy braves the cold, the demons and the drag queens and does the gayest place on earth on the gayest day of the year

The part I liked best was when the eighteen identically dressed drag queens sashayed in to our restaurant, intent on commandeering the martini bar at the back. They did so to much hooting and hollering from the patrons having dinner there, including us. This was quite a show after all. The girls were a sight to behold in sparkly black and white costumes cut high on the leg, with bared (fake but voluminous) breasts and ostrich-plumed head-dresses strung with flashing Christmas lights. Very
