Dolce Gabbana K Review

On the surface of it, Dolce Gabbana K is another mediocre release from a brand that hasn’t innovated since The One For Women landmarked a move towards unctuous and silky powerhouse florals that, along with Black Orchid, would mould today’s obsession with hyper-projection and day-and-night longevity.

Is gay culture too sexual? Redditors say…

A Reddit user recently explained that he is worried sometimes about “how sexual gay culture is,” and his observations set off a spirited debate about how we should balance sex and love and whether this is even an exclusively gay issue. Related: Gay guys reveal whether or not they got to “live out their youth properly” “I know people love sex and everything, and more power to you, but sometimes I feel boxed in when I’m not really a sexual person,” the original poster wrote. “Like, I don’t have a...

How a conspiracy theorist father inspired this super queer podcast

Hearing Chelsey Weber-Smith, host of American Hysteria, a podcast from Skylark Media “exploring the fantastical thinking and irrational fears of Americans,” speak, you would never guess their father was a doomsday prepper. “My father is a brilliant person and we have a lot in common,” Chelsey, who identifies as nonbinary and queer, tells Queerty. “We are both constant seekers.

Breathtaking Color Photographs Of The American South Taken By William Eggleston In The Late 1960s And Early 1970s

Until the 1970s, color photography was considered inappropriate for the artwork. Only black and white photographs met the standards of art critics.
