On Sexuality

Sexuality, due to being gay, has played a massive role within my life, as well as those whom which I had shared intimate relations. As such, I have never had much quarrel in delving into the topic as young as 14 to 16. One of the first things I encountered in my reading was the … Continue reading

On Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback Mountain was a damn good movie. At the time it premiered, I was working  at the Loop in Methuen, MA, and was able to watch it without charge. It was totally worth it.

On page 362 and 363, in Chapter 25, regarding … Continue reading

Homosexuality and Social Sexualization

I came out back in 5th Grade, before DOMA was signed into law (and then thankfully repealed), before DADT was signed into law (and then also repealed), and I consider my sexual orientation be a part of me no different than any other qualities. Having been out so damn long, I have encountered my fair … Continue reading
