  • Gentrification Has Changed Urban Gay Culture

    A lot has been talked about gentrification over the years on how it’s

  • The Issue of Ageism in the Porn Industry and Nightclub Exploitation

    Singer Lovari recently decided to relaunch Latino Fan Club along with Brian Brennan. I thought that was interesting as Lovari is well known in the gay scene. I decided to interview him for my blog. LeNair Xavier, who bills himself as an anti porn activist, was critical of Lovari’s decision. LeNair accuses porn of being exploitative to gays and says it does considerable psychological damage. That was a distance Lovari disagreed with. So I decided to interview LeNair as well. While I certainly disagree with LeNair on my share of issues, the responses of some Lovari fans on my blog made LeNair’s point.
