Secrets of Gay Men…

I gotta say this is a very funny and truthful article on Gawker.com: The Secrets Gay Men Don’t Want Straight People to Know. Have we become so mainstream and stereotypical really? I think we should also do “The Secrets Lesbians Don’t Want Straight People To Know!”

Blueberry

This has got to be one of the most brilliant straight queer short film I’ve seen about a straight guy who ordered a $73 dollar prostitute who turns out to be… Blueberry! Written by and starring the ultra-talented Randall Park from The People I’ve Slept With, “Blueberry” is brilliant and reveals how a straight guy and a gay prostitute can spend a hilarious and moving night together. Happy New Year!

Gay or Just Geeky?

Are geeks in or out? You be the judge. From what I’m getting from the video, A Gay Collar wants Brizy Comics because Brizy Comics sent him an elf painting? Seriously only for comic geeks…

I Will Keep My Last Name and You Should Give Me My Money

by Tin

I grew up in a traditional village in Hong Kong. It was a place where almost everyone shared the same last name and was related to each other to a different degree (I still don’t understand how exactly. I just remembered  I had to call this person my remote third cousin and that my second paternal uncle even though he was not my father’s biological brother.) In our village if you were a boy, you would receive a share of the profit whenever the elders sold a piece of land that belonged to our village. This practice is also prevalent at other villages with people of the same family name.

This is just one of the reasons Chinese parents prefer to have boys than girls. The blatant sexism in countries like China, India, and Japan is of course not a secret to the world. Chinese parents prefer boys because boys can provide better labor and, most important of all, carry the family name since when a Chinese girl gets married, she automatically assumes the last name of her spouse and is no longer a part of her biological family but her husband’s. There is an old saying in Chinese, “giving away your daughter in marriage is like splashing a bucket of water; you can’t get either back”, that pretty much sums up the mentality of Chinese folks.

Why am I bothering you with my left-over childhood bitterness? Continue reading

Never Been to Prom

by Steven

It’s the time of year when high school juniors and seniors visit their local malls to find the perfect tuxedo or dress.  It’s the time for prom: the supposedly magical event that every budding teenager dreams of attending ever since they set their foot on high school; except for yours truly.  Yes, I’m one of those rare species that never attended prom in high school (neither junior nor senior).  Or am I really that rare?  Continue reading

Sex and Education

"Lost And Delirious"-the quintessential LUG movie

Listen up ladies! Here is another reason your parents would probably tell you why you should go to college: you are less likely to be sleeping with another woman. As The New York Times reported in the article “Study Undercuts View of College as a Place of Same-Sex Experimentation“, a new study by the Centers for Disease Control, based on 13,500 responses, reveals that “almost 10 percent of women ages 22 to 44 with a bachelor’s degree said they had had a same-sex experience, compared with 15 percent of those with no high school diploma. Women with a high school diploma or some college, but no degree, fell in between.”


Say what?! Whatever happened to the absolute truth wide belief that women generally tend to have their first same-sex experience (and more afterwards if they like it of course!) in upstanding educational establishments? They don’t call it LUG (Lesbian Until Graduation) for no reasons. Continue reading

-26 and a Marriage

by Jason

Last weekend, I visited Edmonton, the provincial capital of Alberta and home to North America’s largest shopping and entertainment complex, West Edmonton Mall. This mall is bigger than the Mall of America in Minneapolis, has an amusement mark, world waterpark, and 20,000 parking spaces. It seemed on Saturday, Feb 19 that all 20,000 parking spaces were being used, because people were circling like vultures to grab any. Did I mention it was -26 Celsius outside? A good friend of mine, Rodney, was getting married and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Rodney and I go way back to high school. His outlook on life and sense of adventure helped shaped who I am today. The fact that he found someone else to share his life with is amazing and I wanted to meet female Rodney.

Tears of Joy – Rodney’s mom

Megan Rogers held her own. She has an independent adventurous spirit, very caring, but still able to take care of herself. One story that resonated with me was how she adapts to getting sleep if the groom becomes anxious in the middle of the night. She puts in ear plugs and a sleeping mask. This girl knows how to prioritize! Continue reading
