Hector Silva’s Work Matters

Hector Silva’s work paved the way for latino artists in the gay community. Sometimes quaintly called “erotic,” his explicit imagery normalized gay sex by demonstrating the intimacy of lovemaking.

Greater than Gold: Why Presence at the Olympics is more Valuable Than Medal Counts

After several attempts to revive the ancient Greek Olympic Games, a 2-year-old International Olympic Committee hosted the first truly international version of the games in 1896.

On the other side is a career politician firmly entrenched in the broken political machine fueled by corporate money and outside interests, who has spent much of her time skipping… Keep Reading

LGBT Reading For Fall

Modern Lovers Emma Straub Friends and former college bandmates Elizabeth and Andrew and Zoe have watched one another marry, buy real estate, and start businesses and families, all while trying to hold on to the identities of their youth. But nothing ages them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring. Back in the band’s heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with. Now… Keep Reading
