The phenomenal success of Pokemon Go has inspired me. I have developed a new game for the gay male community that combines the best features of the augmented-reality game Pokemon Go with gay hook-up apps like Grindr. I call it Pokemon Gay.
Since my Post coming-out, my HIV-related writing has changed. Rather than chronicling others' stories as an outsider, I write an "inside story" of a journalist now seeing the world through the eyes of a gay man living with HIV.
I was lucky enough to find a relationship with God at an early age. My family owned a church, so the majority of my adolescence was spent being hauled back and forth to every church service you can imagine.
Back in my day, it was a lot tougher and riskier to find someone who wanted to have sex with us. There were no apps like Grindr for gay hookups, and we had to resort to all sorts of crazy behaviors to first discover, and then fulfill our desires.
Nowadays I'm bombarded with date and hook-up requests from devoted, loving, legal male partners with children and country homes and happy Instagram holiday photos, and an appetite for single-man sex as big as their stock portfolios. But is it worth it?
