Sometimes I think I have got it going perfectly until something falls out of rhythm and it knocks me off balance and I'm like why? Surely everyone does this.
You know when people say when you're onto something good, just ride the wave? Ride the wave regardless, I say. Anyway, I'm doing just that. I'm riding the wave at the beach, with Mark.
The 15 Top, Must-Watch Queer Movies
As a queer writer, I love to see representation in media, but like anything else, this can be problematic. It's easy to be controversial in media, especially when it comes to actors playing characters whose experiences they cannot relate to (ie. an able-bodied actor playing a disabled character). I've curated a list of the fifteen best LGBTQIA+ plus movies for those looking for a little representation. I rated them based off of things like depth, realism, representation, and presentation, but I'm not a movie critic, so feel free to judge for yourself.
I've changed my mind
She was unexpected, wonderful and forbidden. I first saw her, my cheeks started to blush and the butterflies fluttered and tickled my stomach. The curve of her lips always forming a seductive smile and the incredible stare that she gave sending me weak at my knees. The hair rising on my body from the radiating electricity and the yearning to feel her touch. If only I could have her.
Adventures of a late in life lesbian
Since coming out to my husband and dealing with the turbine of emotions on both our parts, we've settled into some new kind of marriage. One that says, "For now and hopefully forever" but also, "It's ok to make it look however we need it to." That has been a freeing and terrifying reframing. Freeing because there is a security we have created for one another- a sort of undying commitment that doesn't feel like bondage or obligatory loyalty. But terrifying because a door has been unlocked. Until last year, I didn't even notice the door. Now, I've been handed the keys and whatever is on the other side is calling to me.
To Breathe Again
TW: child abuse, sexual abuse, infant loss, self harm, suicide I’ve had to let a lot of things go – mainly people, and old versions of myself I didn’t always completely hate. When I first came out, I thought I was fully prepared to lose everything. My family, my friends, my sense of normalcy. Granted, normalcy never felt good, but it was still something I craved. I liked fitting in with the crowd I grew up in; the ease of doing whatever someone else expected removed the conundrum of making decisions.
Letters From a Lost Kingdom
Dearest Galia, By the time you receive this later, Rubrum soldiers will have surrounded my home. It must be terrible looking in from the outside; I've heard rumors from the people that I and my family may already be dead.
Being Gay in a Straight Relationship
Have you ever felt like part of your life was covered up in a mask and was simply hidden away from you just by living your everyday life?
Met him at the video arcade
It was a cold, cloudy, snowy December night in Denver, CO. I was in need of sexual relief of tension. My wife hadn't had sex with for over six months and Susie palm and her five sisters was not helping relieve my tensions any more. I worked at Dominoes' as a delivery driver. I decided to go to The Galaxy Video Arcade. After having oral sex with several men, I saw him. He came into the booth with me and we had oral sex. Then it happened, he invited me too his apartment. I called home and said I would be later than normal.

please tag me if you share <3 @meliorsini ••• ••• ••• i had no intention of having a cliché seasonal love but i guess there’s really no way of planning these things. just like the trip wasn’t planned. an impulse actually, first time i ever take on a black friday offer. new york, round trip, on christmas? worth it. truth be told, i only had like two hundred dollars extra to bring with me on this trip but i hadn’t seen my older sister in more years i could count, so staying with her would be the perfect chance for us to catch up and also solve my housing issue. the day came, as soon i stepped foot in new york ground, i actually felt butterflies in my stomach. it reminded me when i was in 9th grade and the boys my best friends and i liked would stroll in front of our classroom. that little tingle, multiplying.
