Mark Brennan Rosenberg

There has been a lot of controversy over a blog post I wrote on The Huffington Post two weeks ago entitled "Are Gay Men Scared of Monogamy?" Given the response, you'd think I'd written a post called "The Gay Apocalypse Is Coming, and If You Don't Pair Off, You're Going to Die!"

Are Gay Men Scared of Monogamy?

Mark Brennan Rosenberg | Posted 02.05.2014 | Gay Voices
Mark Brennan Rosenberg

It seems to me that if we want our relationships and marriages to be accepted by our straight counterparts, then maybe it's time to keep a lid on what exactly it is that we do behind closed doors. Maybe it's just no one's business.

Paul Florez

It's hard to accept when a relationship has ended, and it's even harder to let someone go. In the fall of 2010, I had broken up with my boyfriend of seven years, and after months of solitude and grief, I was convinced that I was incapable of falling in love again.
