Openly Gay NCAA Player Quitting Sport
This is not only a different story, it’s enlightening.
Derrick Gordon made history this year when he became the first openly gay player to play in the NCAA basketball tournament known as March Madness.
But Gordon, 24, isn’t looking to turn pro.
He announced this that he’s now leaving the sport behind to focus on the next stage his life: becoming a firefighter.
You can read more about him, here. He came out in the first place to set an example and to help others who were still living in the closet.
World’s Oldest Gay Bookstore Relocates…Kind Of Sort Of
Even though I still believe that digital books will dominate the market in the years to come, and I know for a fact it’s still less expensive for readers to order books online now, I’ve always believed that some brick and mortar book stores will stick around. At least for a while. I think it all depends on how they reinvent themselves, and how much competition is left in the marketplace.
The world’s oldest surviving LGBTI bookstore, Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto, has announced that it is set to move to larger premises next month.
Glad Day opened in 1970, before there was much of an established gay scene in Toronto. Since 1981, it has occupied a small, cramped second floor space on Yonge Street.
Despite the lack of space, it has enjoyed a loyal following who return to browse the books, magazines and comics, or listen to author readings and attend other events.
There’s a catch, and it’s a clever one. It’s not just books anymore. They’re turning it into a cafe and a bar with live performances. So does that still make it a book store? Or is it now a bar with books? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. But I do think it’s a smart move.
It will offer a café bar during the day and alcohol and performance space in the evenings.

Straight guys have revealed their gayest experience they’ve ever had, and it gets pretty erotic.
Here’s a selection of our favorites from Reddit:
