Here’s all the good, bad and the ugly about our first time viewing porn. Remember VHS tapes? Were we ever so young?
Unpacking internalized homophobia (and lesbophobia, and biphobia, and transphobia, and misogyny, and MORE) is hard, but for you we did our best!
“I thought the Alicia Keys poster on my wall could see me, which I think had something to do with internalized homophobia.”
In the second and final part of our Black History Month Roundtable series, we’re ready to look forward. We’re asking, what are our hopes for black queer futures?
“For me, queering Black History Month is about making sure that future generations don’t feel the same pressure to choose between their blackness and their sexuality that I once did. It’s about leaving space to be all of yourself, at once.”
We’re over New Year’s resolutions – here’s what we’re looking forward to in 2018. What about you?

“I essentially stole my brother’s car and drove it an hour away across state lines to go see my then-girlfriend for only 30 minutes while my parents thought I was at the movies”
“I love being gay because I get to call these brilliant and vibrant queers my friends and family.”
A lot of the requests from readers for advice and for personal writing are about mental health, so today we thought we’d share with you about our brain situations, what helps, what doesn’t, and what we’re still working on.
“Almost all of the characters are terrible people and the main values I share with them are workaholism and excellent hair. But sometimes when things fall apart, it can be nice to see things fall apart somewhere entirely different, again and again and again.”
Turn on all the lights in the house and come read about the Winchester Mystery House, haunted cabins, songs playing from beyond the veil, and our deeply unsurprising number of experiences with ghost cats.
