Your Ultimate Guide to LGBT Gay Travel Resources

By Adam Groffman At lunch earlier in the day, over a bowl of guacamole, I’d sat with my friends looking through a copy of Echo Mag—one of Phoenix’s three (three!!!) print LGBT magazines. On the second to last page was a map of downtown Phoenix with short descriptions of each of the bars, shops and clubs. There were at least 20 different ones and we weren’t entirely sure which was for what crowds, but I pulled out the page from the magazine and stuffed it in my pocket. From a boozy lunch of marga...

When Did Unsolicited Nudes Become The Appropriate Way To Say Hello?

What’s with guys who think sending a picture of their junk is an appropriate way to start a conversation? That’s what one university student wants to know. “Recently, I made a short-lived decision to give the dating apps another go,” Tim Mottishaw writes in a new op-ed titled Dick pics don’t make for a good first impression. “I’d forgotten about one of the big things that drove me away last time: dick pics as a greeting.” Related: Gay And Straight Dudes Trade Notes On Why They Send D*ck Pics Ap...

Older Guys Discuss The First Time Someone Called Them “Daddy”

It’s started happening to us, and we’re not all too pleased: Younger bucks casually calling us “daddy.” Should we be faintly annoyed and more-than-faintly turned off by the whole thing?

How Out Magazine's Milo Yiannopoulos Story Missed The Whole Story & Betrayed Readers

When he's not being admitted to White House press conferences to ask the President of the United States to intervene with his Twitter account, proclaiming feminism to be cancer, swaying votes for Donald Trump, or palling around with Ann Coulter, Milo Yiannopoulos baits the gays on Instagram with photos like this -- and gets the star treatment in glossy LGBT magazines. Two days ago, Out magazine caused a firestorm when it published a sprawling, nearly 5,500-word personality profile of alt-right...

Colby Keller Explains His Role In Grindr’s Shakespeare-Inspired Film

  I play each of those ‘Seven Ages,’ and there’s one other person who plays a soldier I carry off the battlefield — this beautiful man with a crazy body. But all the other stages of man are played by me. It was a lot of fun and I think it will be really beautiful. The project really was Landis Smithers’ creative idea and he has, from what I’ve seen, really nailed everything. It sort of looks like a classic ’80s perfume ad… Grindr has a big audience and they use it specifically for one thing, wh...

Watch What Happens During A Day Without Grindr

For many gays, a Grindr outage is a catastrophe on par with a tsunami or Paris Is Burning being removed from Netflix streaming, but it may not be all bad to go without Grindr for a little while. L.A.-based sketch comedy duo and YouTubers Cool Kid Adjacent have come up with a clever, effective, and non-preachy vid that encourages gays to look up from their phones and get into the variety of hot guys that ripe for the picking in the real world.

These Terrible Grindr Tips Are Guaranteed To Get You Laid

There’s something about comedian Mano Agapion’s tips on how to succeed on Grindr that have us in mildly uncomfortable stitches. Clearly tongue-in-cheeck, his “advice” is so brutally on the nose that if you followed it, it might actually get you laid — for the worst possible reasons. “You need a hot pic of your torso that says ‘I move fast and I don’t respect myself.'” Check. “Be curt, be dismissive, and by all means, be abusive. It’s important to come off ‘masc,’ and nothing is more masculine t...

If You Think You’ve Acted A Bit Too Gay After Sex, This Is For You

How comfortable is too comfortable with a hookup? Letting him in on the fact that you do drag? Or maybe that you are just outraged at how Delta Burke was treated on her way out of Designing Women. YouTuber Michael Henry is back with a video that answers that age-old question of exactly how long one needs to butch it up after completing an act of gay sex.

First Dates On Grindr Vs. Tinder Lead To Wildly Different Outcomes

For comedy’s sake, sure — Grindr is two clicks left of a bathhouse and Tinder is built for modern day puritans. But in reality, we’ve heard some Tinder stories that would make the most forward among us blush three shades redder than a cherry tomato. And that’s coming from some of our straight friends. Still, the stereotypes the gang from Logo’s upcoming show Gay Skit Happens hit on are hilarious nonetheless. The show premieres February  10 on Logo. Watch below: Logo TV
