Some of the greatest queer films that came out of the 90s and 00s cast clearly non-queer actors. Birdcage. Priscilla: Queen of the Desert. Two Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything. Transamerica. Milk. Brokeback Mountain. And yet, regardless of the straight … Continue reading Queer Media Representation: Who Cares If They’re Straight?
You’ve heard the saying… “Labels are for clothes, not for humans.” As if we don’t require categorisation. But I somewhat disagree because, without categorisation, how do we fit into this wide and wavering world? It’d just be a cliche sea … Continue reading Labels Are For Humans, Too
Before I get started: NO, I am not asking everyone to be gay. Not all of you would want to try, and that’s totally fine! But, I am asking for society to view sexuality in a fluid state, where it’s … Continue reading Can We Normalise Sexual Fluidity?
It’s just a word… Faggot! There… I said it! But is it really that shocking anymore? For me, it’s just another term of endearment. “Hey fag,” I say to my friends, grinning because we both know that it doesn’t really … Continue reading Owning The “F” Word
The hardest part of being different is having to explain yourself every single time. I dream of a day when that won’t be the case. But it’s foolish to hope that everyone will understand you because we’re always going to … Continue reading 3 Things Every Gay Man Wants You To Know
My name is technically Christopher, but you can call me Chris, bro, mate, girl, queen, fag and maybe the c-word if you’re a close friend. I really don’t care. Just so long as you’re being nice. But not everyone is … Continue reading Don’t Hate Gender-Neutral Pronouns

I still remember when Ricky Martin came out of the closet 10 years ago. The media went wild about it, naturally, but most of us already knew. It was more a collective sigh of relief than a celebration. But then … Continue reading When Will The Act Of “Coming Out” Be Ordinary?
By a certain age, you know what really turns you on. You’ve garnered a small collection of carnal desires and you refer to them in every sexual encounter. Guys in jockstraps, girls with big melons, DILFs and MILFs, and perhaps … Continue reading Sexuality Is Not A Concrete Label
Take it from someone who’s been in a few threesomes: they’re not all their cracked up to be. And yet, we all pretend threesomes are the pinnacle of sexual exploration. Personally, having any kind of satisfying sex is the pinnacle of … Continue reading Threesomes Are Not THAT Amazing
Media representation is a powerful tool in normalising minorities into mainstream society. The first time I saw myself represented on screen was quite surreal. Although the circumstances were a little difficult at the time. At 11 pm, on certain weeknights, … Continue reading Media Representation: A Gay Man’s Perspective
Before I start, I’d first like to say that I don’t consider you transphobic. That’s a HUGE misnomer considering you openly support transgender people and their safety. In fact, I wouldn’t even call you ignorant. From your latest blog post … Continue reading An Open Letter To J.K. Rowling
