Evolutionary psychology and human mating can help explain why relationships between straight women and gay men tend to flourish.
There is no perfect term for all of us (we are too wonderfully diverse for that) but "gay" is about as far from inclusive as you can get and I'm glad Huffington Post Queer Voices made the change like so many other organizations have done.
If there's a fight coming, over the lives of Romania's transgender sons and daughters, Patrick is the one person in the world I'd entrust to lead the charge, with the carnation and the bullhorn both.
I truly think everyone should only come out on their own accord and when they are ready. I've always said I believe that it's an actor's choice whether or not to divulge.
Family Day battle is senseless, empty and void of culture. Perhaps they will never change their minds but in front of these words we should all swallow a sugar-coated sedative and try to speak and reason with them.
I am beginning to learn that one of the best and most important parts about sex for myself, as a man with disabilities, is to give up that power that I held onto so tightly.

After years of stereotypical depictions of intergenerational relationships in TV, porn and movies, it's increasingly clear that our community would do well to shed these hang-ups. We may well be strong, capable and sexual, but without desirable older role models, without a positive, normal vision of what an older gay man can be, we're stunted.
