Why Gay Olympians Are Marketing Gold
This is awfully condescending, and it’s one good example of how gay people get insulted on a daily basis. What they are basically saying is that it’s okay to use gay people and to exploit them for monetary gain. And this is no reflection on Kenworthy or Rippon. I think they’re both wonderful. I’m talking about all gay people right now, in general. I also think this kind of thing happens to a lot of gay people on a much smaller scale.

“Queer Eye” On Black Gay Men
I have to admit that I haven’t watched one episode of the Queer Eye reboot on Netflix. I’m just not a big reboot fan…of anything. I always figured I’ve been there and done it, why go back? But this does sound interesting.

In an episode titled “To Gay or Not Too Gay,” Karamo Brown, one of the five hosts of the show, helps a black man come to terms with his sexuality in an emotional makeover.
Insurance Bias Against Gay Men On PrEP
Apparently some gay men who are on PrEP are being denied insurance coverage.
