Vintage photo shows two military men in a sweet embrace

from gay A vintage photo of unknown origin shows two shirtless military guys, dancing chest to chest and cheek to cheek. The touching pic has been making the rounds on social media, but there’s no consensus on who or where the guys were. An Imgur user claimed they’re military conscripts dancing in Sweden in 1955. An eBay seller, meanwhile, listed the snapshot as a photo of “1940s Army buddies dancing.” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div-gpt-ad-inarticle1...

Do Not Go Quietly

Once upon a time I was the youngest kid in the corporate conference room. I never thought twice before I spoke and digital jargon rolled effortlessly off my tongue. There was some good reason for this. I had decent knowledge of HTML, taught myself Flash (some of you may need to look that up) and when digital media went social, I mastered that as well, at least in the early days. I can still remember the son of a local ad agency owner calling me “the digital guy”. These were heady pioneering yea...

Tarotscopes that slay: New moon in Pisces

Pisces Season is a mystery.  The last sign of the Zodiac doesn’t promise answers to the most profound of life’s questions– it only promises to take us deeper into the questions themselves.  Depending on your relationship with the unknown, Pisces Season can either be a mystical, creative time full of surprise or a miserable slog through your own hidden lose ends.  I’ve had both, sometimes concurrently. I think of Pisces as the sign of the dreamtime, the void and the invisible world. Pisces is th...

We don’t just need more disabled stories on TV. We need better disabled stories on TV.

The first time I saw myself represented on TV was in 2012. I was a junior in college, and having just discovered Breaking Bad on Netflix (back before Orange is the New Black was even a thing, good god I’m old!), I was amazed to see someone with Cerebral Palsy on my screen. Of course at the time, I don’t think I understood the sheer magnitude of what this meant. For me, it was cool to see someone like that, simply because I had never seen it before.  Fortunately, we’ve come a long way...

Naturally conservatives are furious at gay people for Utah decriminalizing polygamy

Via Flickr The state Senate of Utah voted this week to reclassify polygamy from a felony to a misdemeanor crime. In an oh-so-predictable twist, conservatives have already blamed marriage equality. To be clear: polygamy is not legal in Utah, even under the new statute. That hasn’t stopped conservative publication The Federalist from a hyperbolic attack on LGBTQ rights, in essence blaming legalization of polygamy which hasn’t even happened on queer visibility and marriage equality. Author David...

Et tu, Wendy? 9 allies who betrayed their LGBTQ followers

Self-proclaimed LGBTQ ally Wendy Williams is in the middle of a PR nightmare. It all started last week when she launched into what can only be described as an antigay tirade on her show. In a pre-Valentine’s Day rant, Williams went after gay men, demanding they “stop wearing our skirts and our heels.” “Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are,” Williams said. “No matter how gay.” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div-gpt-ad-inarticle1"); }); Related: Wendy ...

If You Want To Make A Point, Make It Real

I started my career as a visual designer. For the first few working years of my professional life, my days were dominated by pictures over text. Over the years my skill set, tools, and approach to work evolved. Written communication helped manage team and client expectations. Verbal communication was also useful, especially in situations where you find yourself going toe to toe with fellow A-type executives where a sharp mind and wise tongue are mandatory requirements. But recently, I was remin...

A reborn Persian Empire captured Rome’s lands—and its emperor

Inspired by their powerful ancestors, the Sassanian dynasty restored Persia to imperial glory, ruling lands that stretched from Turkey to Pakistan.

For the next five centuries, the Iranian plateau became ruled by other empires, until a new Persian dynasty took power. Fiercely proud of their roots, these new kings—the Sassanians—restor...

Boosie Badazz outraged after being banned from gym for filming transphobic rant in weight room

Rapper Boosie Badazz says he’s been banned from his local gym after making transphobic remarks about NBA legend Dwayne Wade’s daughter. It all started when Boosie shared a video, filmed during a workout at Planet Fitness, with his 18 million Instagram followers in which he admonished Wade for going “too far” in his support for his own daughter. “That is a male,” Boosie ranted. “A 12-year-old.

How to Find the Natural Part In Your Hair

If you’ve decided to go for a side-part hairstyle, you’ll want to part your hair the way it naturally wants to part.  The problem is, a lot guys don’t do this because they don’t know their hair even has a natural part. Instead, the way they part their hair began out of chance, continues out of habit, and may actually run opposite to their natural part. The result? A hairstyle that doesn’t stay in place or look as sharp as it could.   Consult the guide above to make sure you’re parting your hair...

Take Tonight’s Dinner Up a Notch With These Stupidly Easy Biscuits

Biscuits have an unfair reputation as being hard to make. Yes, the flaky, perfectly round variety are indeed somewhat of a pain. (And those Pillsbury rolls in a can are darn good.) But most people aren’t familiar with a whole category called drop biscuits. These biscuits are scone-like in both texture and appearance, but taste just like the delicious fresh biscuit you’re craving. Also, they’re crazy easy.  If you’ve never made anything in your life, you can make these biscuits. It takes longer...

Gratitude: Giving and Getting

The other day I ran into a former colleague who had gone on to take a senior role with a highly respected fortune 100 company you’ve definitely heard of. He’s kind of a big deal. Yet after a few minutes of chit chat, he made it a point to go out of his way to express gratitude for learning the art of the Whiteboard...from me. And then I felt like kind of a big deal. He knew what he was doing. Expressing gratitude to someone for something that they probably didn’t even know that they did is p...

Man recalls that time his older married lover tried setting him up with his son

Podcast #586: The Story of the Skiing Soldiers of WWII

In the winter of 1940, a group of civilian skiers was sitting by a fire in a ski lodge in Vermont shooting the breeze about how the US Army needed an alpine division like the militaries in Europe had. That conversation transformed into a concerted effort to turn their idea into a reality, and the creation of the Army’s 10th Mountain Division — a unit which would play a vital role fighting in the mountains of Italy during World War II. My guest today has written a book on these skiing, snow-bo...
