Do You Like Girls?

By : May 19, 2020 Comments Off
She said it so flatly, as if it was another time and space completely, “Do you like girls?” I was sixteen, I think. Yea. Sixteen, and so far from my true self that at this present day I’d have to say that she was a ghost of some sort. A ghost of what’s left after adolescence, collecting any pieces of personality, however ill-fitting. How did the ghost respond? I think she said something like, ‘Sometimes.’ Which of course would be the most reasonable and literally factual response available to the ghost at the time. Which I suppose would have meant, “the best armored response that wasn’t aggressive or offensive.” Misleading? Maybe, but what could be expected? I mean this was probably the gayest human being I’d been within a few

What Cracked My Egg

By : May 19, 2020 Comments Off
Have you ever thought you were someone and then turns out you’re someone else entirely? That’s what happened to me. I thought I was a cis-may-not-be-totally-hetero man for a long stretch of time, but then I saw a video of a trans woman sharing her experience with dysphoria. Let me tell you, seeing that many parallels between our experiences got me questioning myself pretty quickly. My ads and YouTube  algorithm got shaken up and everything on my recommended tab were trans videos. It was a wild month, I’m telling you. Anyways, I’m here to share my experience, hoping that I can do for you what that woman did for me.  Let’s start with my childhood, shall we? You see, my childhood was pretty normal, one might even say that it

I didn’t come out. Gay just happened.

By : May 19, 2020 01 Comment
Why I never really came out in the traditional sense. Trigger warning: this article discusses substance abuse, mental health and suicidal ideation. If you asked me to describe my life from ages 15 to 23, I’d tell you that those were the worst eight years of my life that I wish I could forget. If you asked other people they’d say that I went to summer college at Syracuse University, damn near a full ride to college where I finished a five-year degree in four and a half and that I went to and completed graduate school at Columbia University.  Pretty big disconnect right? Hindsight is always 20/20 but at the time I couldn’t see that I was masking my pain with accomplishments so everyone around me would focus on

I went over to see my boyfriend Jai, he drives a truck and we're in this long distance relationship thing and after a month of texting and FaceTime sex we finally get a chance to see each other! We had so much planned, Jai wanted to take me out to this nice restaurant and we go for a walk on the river and then come home and touch an kiss each other's bodies, that burning desire which I been holding in for months!

"Baby, damn I missed you!" He said  "I missed you too, (kissing) I

You Can’t Sit with Us

By : May 19, 2020 Comments Off
Not checking a box left me on my own gay island In seventh grade, I learned a new word: Bisexual. “What’s that mean?” I asked. “It’s when you like both boys and girls,” one of my friends said. There wasn’t just one, but two girls in my grade who were bisexual. I never felt like the other girls I hung out with and maybe that was why. Amber was more tomboyish and Shoshana was more girly, but I never felt like either one of them exactly, so I wasn’t sure if I was actually bisexual but I kept it in my back pocket just in case. Okay, so bisexual means I can like boys and girls. But do I like any girls or do I just think they’re really pretty?

Dating During Lockdown

By : May 19, 2020 Comments Off
The good, the bad and the ugly  Does dating during lockdown exist? It does, it just exists in a more condensed version of regular dating. There’s very little meeting up, and very little swiping because of the lack of ability to meet up. In my personal experience I was able to meet one girl online, on Bumble, and it’s been great. We talk about the lockdown, and coronavirus because what else is there to talk about nowadays? We were curious about asking people what their experiences are like during the lockdown. So, we asked a few people about their dating habits during lockdown. Sophie, 20, Guelph, CanadaBisexual Woman  Okcupid  Have you gone on a date during lockdown?  “I haven’t been on a date since the lockdown started.”  How has your dating
