Palm Springs Hot Young Trainer: David Perez
Here’s an interview with a trainer in Palm Springs. They claim they’re doing these interviews to inspire people to stay in shape. Which I totally agree with. I run or hike every morning, in all kinds of weather, and I work out with weights at night.
Favorite athletic outfit: The best outfit to wear when working out is clothes that makes you feel you look good in. So if you look in the mirror, you’re motivated to finish your workout.

Society likes to keep gay teens sexless. It likes to maintain that gay content (even something non-sexual, like the representation of gay parents) is inappropriate for children’s TV or books. Those who complain say it’s too adult – implying that queerness, essentially, is all about sex, while straightness is just what a normal relationship looks like.
