Hey guys! Our friends at Freshpair have put together a contest just for us. Five lucky winners can get some cool underwear from high end companies like Expose, 2xist and Piss & Vinegar.

Here’s how it works, leave a comment telling us what sort of underwear floats your boat and why. Do Trunks make you hot? Are Jockstraps the only thing you want your lovers to own? Does the vision of a stud in Long-johns leave you drooling? Are you the classic Boxer type? Or do you like to be surprised with a variety?

We will pick 5 lucky winners randomly on Monday. Remember you need to give us the what and why of it to be in the running. Sorry but the contest is only open to US residents. Good luck and have a great weekend!

By now we're sure many of you have heard of the incident in New Jersey where a man was shot and killed for cruising an undercover police officer.

Credit Union of Atlanta CEO DeFarra Gaymon was shot and killed by a police officer in Newark, New Jersey last week after allegedly propositioning the officer at a gay cruising area.

Gaymon stopped by the Branch Brook Park area while en route to his 30th high school reunion. The neighborhood is known for attracting sexual activity and male prostitutes, according to a report in The New York Times.

According to Essex County prosecutor Robert D. Laurino, the 29-year-old officer, whose name hasn’t been released, claims he fired in self-defense. He says when he attempted to arrest Gaymon for lewd behavior, he ran and, when cornered, tried to disarm the officer.

The officer shot Gaymon once. He died three hours later at nearby University Hospital.

Gaymon was married and the father of four children

Now, we were not there so we don't know what exactly happened. Is the cop a sadistic homophobe? Did Mr. Gaymon's life flash before his eyes as the cop identified himself and he went into...

With a very rigid idea of what sexuality should be, American men are taught to be disgusted by even the slightest thought of two men engaging in any sort of sexual activity. The effect this indoctrination has on men usually manifests into self-hate for gay men and absolute homophobia for straight men, because if you’re told something long and hard enough, it becomes truth. But as the culture continues to shift and “gay” becomes less demonized by society, straight men are slowly realizing that gay guys can make okay friends, and gay men are realizing that not every straight man are repulsed by them. And with this epiphany, comes another set of problems.

Like many gay men, I grew up with mostly female friends as other guys, not having dealt with my own sexuality, freaked me out and made me feel unlike them. So when I did give up the ghost and identified gay, my shift came to befriending other gay men to share collective experience, and get a sense of male bonding that I had never gotten in my youth. As I navigated through this transition, and dealt with my own masculinity (which was in opposition to the nelly queen I had been told I must be) I began to see the complicated balance that can be the straight guy/gay guy relationship.

As unfortunate as is it that straight men are taught to abhor the sissy, it is equally unfortunate that there is a sense of bragging rights to bagging a straight guy, which has also helped pushed away the fact that yes… gay guys and straight guys can be friends. When I used to hear gay me discuss their attempts and/or successes with...

I just read this article in the current issue of Time Out New York and feel inspired. Choreographer Paul-Andre Fortier is in the midst of a world tour of his solo performance "30x30". A 30 minute piece performed outdoors for 30 days, the story is that of a man trying to find his place in the city. He has danced in the streets of Japan, France, Rome and will be in New York City dancing rain or shine at One New York Plaza starting on Friday the 16th.

Some interesting quotes from the article :

"There are not enough older men dancing. I think there is poetry in the aging body that is very exciting. "

“This solo is the most demanding thing I’ve done. When you dance on a stage, you are protected; when you’re outside, the sky is so high! For me, it’s been a learning process about focusing. I’m doing it all wrong. Dancers fight for a sprung floor, for the right temperature in the theater and for having a day off. I dance on concrete. I dance in the rain and in the cold, and I have no day off for 30 days.”

I think I have a new Crush.

I was bopping along online yesterday and I come across an article for an App by the name of Avoidr. The idea behind Avoidr is for it to assist you in steering clear of people who's path you don't want to cross. iPhone, Droid and BlackBerry users rejoice. We now have the beginnings of the Anti-Social network and a way to take stalking to a whole new level.

Now, I’m a BlackBerry boy myself (Apple cult followers don’t try to convert me!) and I have a handful of helpful 3rd party Apps taking up space. MyGayGo helps me find LGBT friendly businesses when I’m out of town. GoogleMaps is great when I’m deep in neighborhoods I don’t know well. Especially when I’m doing the well earned walk of shame at 7am on a Sunday after one on one time with a hot Daddy. The Fandango App is perfect when I want to check the time and place of a flick on a whim.

But do I really need an App that tells me where that Leather Daddy who’s bondage skills rate about negative five (found that out the hard way) is tonight so I can make sure I’m not around? I’m man enough to nod my head in greeting and keep it moving. And why the hell am I keeping track of people I don’t care for anyway? Sounds sort of ass backwards to me guys.

So, what Apps do you use and can’t live without and what Apps do you think the time creating would have been better spent watching paint dry?

Judge Joseph L. Tauro of United States District Court in Boston sided with the plaintiffs in two separate cases brought by the state attorney general and a gay rights group.

Although legal experts disagreed over how the rulings would fare on appeal, the judge’s decisions were nonetheless sure to further inflame the nationwide debate over same-sex marriage and gay rights.


If the rulings find their way to the Supreme Court and are upheld there, they will put same-sex marriage within the constitutional realm of protection, just as interracial marriage has been for decades. Seeking that protection is at the heart of both the Massachusetts cases and a federal case pending in California over the legality of that state’s ban on same-sex marriage..."

"Flickr user ttyyttyy555 loves fur so much that he spends his free time photoshopping it onto hot, hairless models. Since he leaves the unedited photos up for side-by-side comparison, can we finally say that one is better than the other?

If indeed the only change he makes to these models is the addition of a few pixilated follicles of hair, you have to admit that the transformations are pretty incredible. We've long professed a preference for hairy guys, but we never realized quite how dramatically a little chest hair and a mustache can change your entire look. Ultimately, the amount of body hair you think looks best on a guy comes down to personal preference, but we think there are a few cases where one look or the other is definitely best. What do you think?"

What a pleasant surprise to power up my trusty computer this morning and have the Google doodle remind me that it is the 103rd birthday of one of my favorite artists : Frida Kahlo. In 2008 I saw her work up close for the first time at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and like most cases when you can see something you have revered up close with your own eyes, my admiration for her only deepened. What's better then a rebel without a cause? A rebel with one.

Earlier this year, I was turned on to the work of Nahum Zenil. Openly gay and a strong advocate for the LGBT movement in Mexico, he also has this knack for simplistic and raw self portraiture but with a style of his own. Here is some of his work.

Who are some of your favorite artists?
