When comfort food doesn’t bring comfort

comfort-food-main
Damn those mid-afternoon munchies. The ones that make you forage through your fridge and pantry in every hastening circles of panic. Logical thinking goes into free-fall…There’s nothing sweet here…What am I going to eat?…I need to eat something sweet Continue reading

Gay Blog – A Starter’s Guide

gay-blog-guide-header
One of the reasons why I started a ‘gay blog’ was because I was inspired by the great writing of other gay bloggers. Seeing other people share their thoughts, feeling and opinions gave me the courage to do the same. Especially since I wasn’t seeing or hearing my views being represented in the more traditional, mainstream gay media.

Why Monogamy Isn’t Boring

monogamy-header
Being in a long-term (6 years and going strong), monogamous relationship is one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve ever had in my life. Instead of withering away into non-existence, my love life is better, more meaningful and more fun than ever!

With the gay rights movement in full swing, there’s a lot we can learn about where we’re going based on the lessons and experiences we’ve seen unfold in the women’s liberation movement.

NICHE: Living Out In The Outback

As issues like marriage equality and gay rights gain broader acceptance, it can be easy to overlook the fact that there are still segments of the LGBTI community who are not experiencing the positive effects of these ongoing changes.

Approaching 40 – Blink And It’ll Be Here

40-logo
One of the strongest memories I have of turning 30, is of my mother leaning in to me to give me a kiss as she handed me my birthday present. Knowing her as I do, I was expecting her to whisper something lovely and heartfelt into my ear. Her exact words? “Blink and before you know it, you’ll be 40.”

No Asians – No Offence?

no-asians-no-offenceIt’s something that you may have come across when viewing someone’s profile on a gay hook up site. Two small words that pack a big punch – ‘No Asians’. This article isn’t about whether such a statement is merely expressing a legitimate preference, or constitutes blatant rudeness or even racism. Instead, this article looks into the underlying stereotypes that exist when it comes to gay Asian men and how we’re all affected by this.

A Chat With Lqd Skin Care

lqd-skin-care-logo
My dad was a conservative, strict and old-fashioned guy. Which is why it’s kind of surprising that I learnt one of the most valuable skin care habits from him. Every morning and every evening, he insisted my sister and I clean our faces (with water, no soap) and put on a moisturiser (we didn’t have a lot of money growing up, so it wasn’t anything fancy).

Love Your Penis

If you’re not endowed with porn star length in the penis department, don’t despair. You’re not alone. Pretty much the only guys that have porn star penises are porn stars. For the rest of us, we need to learn to love the penises we have.

Easton Mountain: Honouring The Gay Spirit

easton-mountain-logo
The gay community is often associated with the gay scene. The gay scene is often (unfortunately) associated with somewhat superficial things such as parties, nightclubs and nightlife. So it’s nice to find a gay space that offers something for the soul. Easton Mountain is that place.

A New LGBTI Identity

identity-logo
These are exciting, and increasingly progressive, times for the LGBTI community. Gay rights are now firmly planted in the mainstream political discourse. Broad public support for marriage equality is at an all-time high. Debates about complex issues such as HIV/AIDS treatments and transgender teens are becoming more mature and complex.

Dealing With Homophobia Online

homophobia-logo Homophobia has many forms. It can be violence, physical intimidation, discrimination and unequal treatment. It can also come in the form of words. Words that as members of the LGBTI community, we’re unfortunately all too familiar with. Even as society moves towards a growing, genuine acceptance of the LGBTI community, language remains a battleground.

HERO Condoms Save Lives – Twice

hero-condoms-logo
I love the concept of one-for-one giving. Basically, it means that if an organisation is selling let’s say shoes, for every pair of shoes that it sells, another pair is donated to a community in need. A lot of companies are going down this path, including HERO – a company that sells….of all things, condoms!

Celebrating The Small

The Little Gay Blog recently turned 1 year old. It’s an achievement that I’m very proud of, as it does take quite a lot of time and effort to keep writing consistently and producing (hopefully) high quality articles.

Loving Your Body

love your body
For the first time in my life, I actually feel good about the way I look. And guess what? I don’t have washboard abs. My biceps aren’t bulging to escape from my shirt sleeves. And I’ll probably never be a gay magazine cover model.
