Gay Men & Slut Shaming
Desperate Instagrammers, bar trolls, and Grindr sluts easily conjure up images that'll have any kween's eyes rolling for days. Though there's deeper context to a lot of sexual behavior, why does it so easily illicit such a visceral reaction in our own community? Check out my latest video on "Slut Shaming" to find out what it's about and what we can do to grow individually and collectively.
Gay Men & Racial Preference
Actor and activist Wilson Cruz and I talk about the role race plays in gay men's attraction towards each other. Some say it's a "preference" while others contend it's just another racist smoke screen for White gay men to hide behind.
