Queer Prismatic Font Honors Rainbow Flag Inventor

Coming to a protest sign, Pride banner, or queer-friendly space near you.

Original story from Out Magazine

It’s been nearly 40 years since artist and activist Gilbert Baker created the first rainbow flag with his bare hands, dying the strips of fabric and stitching them together one by one. Today the flag, whose colors have been reduced from eight to six over time, flies as a symbol of unity and pride for the LGBTQ community.

Now, thanks to the combined efforts of Ogilvy & Mather, Newfest, NYC Pride, and Fontself, the spirit of the rainbow flag has been infused into a font, with strips of alternating colors laid out to form letters making every word drip with technicolor.

Gay Dating Tips for Finding the Right Person

Gay dating tips to help you find love 1: Keep things in perspective

Don’t make your search for a relationship the center of your life. Concentrate on activities you enjoy, your career, health, and relationships with family and friends. When you focus on keeping yourself happy, it will keep your life balanced and make you a more interesting person when you do meet that special guy.

Remember that first impressions aren’t always reliable. Especially when it comes to online gay dating, people don’t always accurately portray themselves. Regardless of where or how you meet someone, though, it always takes time to really get to know that person. You have to experience being with someone in a variety of situations, some good and some not so good, before you really know him. For example, how well does this guy hold up under pressure when things don’t go well or when they’re tired, frustrated, or hungry? Continue reading

Truth: it’s all that matters in a relationship

You’ve got to get over the past if you have any hope of finding ‘The One’ for the future.

Original story from Attitude Magazine
Honesty isn’t a quality that only same sex relationships require, but in my experience, some men I’ve dated seem to find it incredibly difficult to tell the fucking truth! I guess that’s why I like to be so brutally honest myself.
I briefly picked up on this in my last column, but I think most guys would find it difficult to trust someone once they’ve been cheated on. University, for most people, was a time to get drunk, discover yourself, get even drunker and explore your sexuality to the fullest – as well as going to the odd lecture when you could drag yourself out of bed. I was definitely no different.

The Silent Epidemic: Helping GBT Men Speak Out About Domestic Violence

Original story from Huffingtonpost.
As a professional editor who has spent a lifetime as a passionate reader, looktoI know that we yearn to see our stories reflected in the books we read.We turn to literature to find out how others love and overcome loss – we hunger to read narratives that illuminate what we face and feel in our own lives. When I experience painful events in my own life, I look to books for comfort. If, as Louise DeSalvo says, “writing is a way ofhealing,” then perhaps this is even more true for reading.
For those gay, bi, and trans men who experience same-sex domestic violence, there are not many places to see their experiences mirrored back to them, especially when it comes to breaking free of the abuse and building a new life. It’s not that the numbers are too small in the LGBTQ community to warrant such a literature; in fact, the statistics are staggering: according to the Centers for Disease Control, 26% of gay men and 37% of bi men are victims of domestic violence.

What It’s Like To Date Someone Who Is Disabled (According To My Non-Disabled Exes)

Original story from Queerty

 

What’s it like to be with someone who is gay and disabled and an occasional hot mess?
As a gay man living with Cerebral Palsy, I get asked this question a lot–in one form or another. I could tell you all about it. But what’s the fun in that? Instead, in a moment or sheer genius (or sheer stupidity, depending on who you ask), I decided to ask my non-disabled former flames what it’s like to be with someone who is gay and disabled.
I asked them, in their words, to tell me about first meeting, sex, dating and why they never proposed to me. Curious for more? Read on!

Right Out There: A Man’s Best Friend Can Also be His HIV-Test Wingman

Original story from OUT Magazine
My best friend Micah has accompanied me to every HIV test I’ve had in the past decade. Carrie and Miranda had the Magnolia Bakery; we have the Gay Men’s Health Crisis on West 29th Street. You’re supposed to go every three months, and I’m there about every four and a half, sometimes five.
I’ve learned to not listen to Aimee Mann on the subway ride. If you want my advice, just put Dolly Parton’s “Travelin’ Thru” on loop. Invariably I’m late, so Micah will wait for me in the Pret a Manger on the corner, as it’s either piercingly cold or summer stormy—you know, weather in which to get potentially life-changing news. We hug, say something bitchy, and walk into the clinic. I’ve always found negative energy to be an underrated quality of close friendship.

Original story from The Gaily Grind

Two Dutch lawmakers arrived to work holding hands yesterday to show solidarity with a gay couple who were brutally attacked over the weekend in the Netherlands.

Jasper Vernes-Sewratan and his husband, Ronnie Sewratan-Vernes, were viciously attacked by a group of young men Sunday morning as they walked home from a party holding hands. The couple say that a group of six to eight young men, began shouting anti-gay slurs before one of the assailants used bolt cutters to beat Ronnie in the face, knocking out several of his teeth.
Ronnie and Jasper were victims of a homophobic attack, this past weekend.
