In my head, 2007 was still three years ago. My Chemical Romance is still a band. One Direction's hot new single … Continue reading Growing Up
Wow. This episode is well over an hour. Interview with Cory Champeon. This will piss off a lot of my friends, as it reveals the more conservative side of me. To clarify: I said gender is not a social construct, and I can't remember if I clarify it or not, but to explain, the gender binary … Continue reading GAYRHS – Episode 7 (Extended)
Barry Manilow officially came out today at the age of 73, and like most people, when I saw his name trending on Twitter, I assumed he died. Nope!

Can you believe it's been a year since I made the best pun of my life? I can't. First, I want to thank my parents, especially my dad, for fighting the insurance company to get me this surgery. Three appeals over the course of six months took patience I could only dream of. You guys worked so … Continue reading One Year Post Top Surgery
