Must Read LGBT Fiction Books
The LGBT experience is an inherently individual one, but encompasses themes that are critical to understand if you want to learn what it means to be truly tolerant and comfortable with diversity.
Desperate for Love
Despite my bitterness and cold persona, I am a hopeless romantic. I used to fantasize (and the word is used deliberately) about finding someone and building a loving, monogamous relationship that would outlast at least one of us. A love so strong that it echoes beyond our meager existence.
Top LGBTQ Movies to Watch
More and more often, we are seeing portrayals of LGBTQ characters in art. There is still a scarcity of characters in all forms of media, and the portrayals tend to be fairly narrow and specific. With that said, there are many gems out there. These top LGBTQ movies include characters from a variety of backgrounds, and people living in many different situations. Some of them broke convention and faced severe backlash upon release, but finally gave young people in the LGBTQ community a place to see themselves on film.
Hottest Lesbian Celebrities
It is an open secret that the world wants to know which of the hottest celebrities are lesbians, and frequently try to rate lesbian celebrities based on who they think is the hottest. These women are proud of their sexuality, and pop culture is fascinated with them. Some people hate them because of this. But who cares? The hottest lesbian celebrities exert an independence and pride that should be an inspiration to women of all sexualities.
Reasons Every Gay Man Should Own a Jockstrap
Jockstraps have been around since 1874 (who knew?) but in recent years, these undergarments have been making a massive comeback. Now available in every style, shape, and color imaginable, jockstraps are slowly becoming a staple in every queer man's closet. As they should! Here are the essential reasons for spicing up your closet with some new jockstraps.
Why Foreplay is Slowly Becoming a Thing of the Past
Foreplay. The word quickly brings to mind a certain couple and situation . . . usually, a man taking a few minutes to ‘warm up’ his lady before the actual act of penetration, perhaps with slow and indulgent kissing, a sensual massage, a little delicate fingering, or even a saucily-applied vibrator. Sometimes oral sex is included under the ‘foreplay’ banner as well. Nothing like an enthusiastic blowjob before the main event, or perhaps some toe-curling cunnilingus. Anything to get everybody fully and utterly aroused before the P. goes in the V. That ‘traditional’ model up there has been around for quite a while, but it ---- and, indeed, the concept of foreplay in general ---- is slowly becoming a relic of the past. Why? Well, one significant reason lies in the growing visibility of LGBT+ couples. If two women, in the process of getting hot ‘n’ heavy, have a heated and desperate makeout session followed by tearing off each others’ clothes and finishing each other off with oral pleasure and digital penetration, you won’t find too many people protesting the fact that they’ve just had sex.
Most Influential LGBTQ Authors
The Pulitzer Prize, the National Medal of Freedom, and even an Emmy: the most influential LGBTQ authors (on this list) have reached international audiences with messages of realism and the value of introspection. They've captivated audiences with comedic theater, satirical commentary, and monumental stories. Their work has been adapted, reimagined, and reproduced in every form of media. Since their first editions, each of our most influential LGBTQ authors has used prose to provide new perspectives and provoke progression.
How Do Celebrities Define Pansexuality?
Being pansexual doesn't mean having fun with your skillet. While the term “pansexual” and the identity that comes with it has been around for centuries, now, in the 21st century, it is a word that's used a lot. The definition of pansexual is "not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity." Furthermore, instead of confining themselves into one sexual demographic (such as lesbian or gay or straight or bisexual), pansexual individuals are authenticating a lifestyle that lacks labels and boundaries. Pansexuality explores all gender types, not just those who identify as the traditional male or female. Celebrities, legislators, and the average Joe are exploring their sexuality more than ever. This sexual fluidity of our time is seemingly becoming a new way of life.
Tinder Vs Grindr
Are we talking about Tinder or Grindr? The similarities between the two dating and/or hookup apps extend beyond the basic swipe left/right model, and the history of the two is somewhat intertwined. The most obvious feature setting the two apart is the target user base. Grindr has been called “gay Tinder,” alluding to the core distinction: gender preference. Although Tinder gives you the option of setting which gender or genders you are seeking, it seems to be discussed and used primarily by the straight community. Grindr, however, is targeted directly to gay, bi and curious men, making it the clear preferred choice for some.
Everyone is a Little Bit Gay
Living as a gay person you get to see another side to life that most never get to experience. My experience as a gay man, when regarding sex, has been that everyone’s a little gay, even if they won’t admit it out loud. Since my sexual awakening I’ve been with both men and women intimately, and everyone of them seriously just wants to get there rocks off. Gender, for the most part doesn’t matter. Also when I say ‘everyone’s a little gay’ I mean, it doesn't necessarily mean you are literally having sex with the same sex, but rather, most people will exhibit gay characteristics, behaviors or openness whether sexual or not. There is a broad spectrum from little bit gay and being open to on the down low gay to being an out and proud friend of Dorothy.
'Paris is Burning' Inspired LGBTQ Culture in America
Recently certain words like “yas” or “queen”, “shade”, “read” and “realness” have become popular sayings in everyday life-speak of most millennials. It’s on our favorite TV shows, strewn throughout social media, on podcasts - you name it, these words all over the place. Most people think this slang came from TV shows like Broad City and Real House Wives of Atlanta or a certain viral YouTube video of a girl screaming “YAAASSS GAGA you look so good!” but sorry people, they did not! Those words originated from one of the most influential LGBTQ documentaries from 1990 called Paris is Burning directed by Jennie Livingston. Thanks to this cutting edge and way before its time film, today many people, including young LGBTQ and heterosexual people alike, are able to embrace and learn about Queer culture in its most rawest form. The documentary exists as a relic of the ballroom scene, which today very much still exists, just not in the same way as it once did.
