Reader question. What scared you the most about coming out? When I came out of the closet and told my parents I was Gay the thing that scared me the most was not knowing how they would react.

  Today was the annual Melbourne Pride march but this year was a little bit special. This year we celebrated 20 years of Pride with what felt like one of the biggest parades yet.

The decision to leave my hair it’s natural colour is about who I am rather than just a fashion choice.

For every kid feeling like I was, please just wait, just wait cause one day you’ll realize just how worth it the wait was….

Despite what Youtube or Instagram might make you think, it’s not funny, cool or even interesting to be willfully ignorant. Basically don’t be a jerk to people whose struggles you don’t know. What I mean is the kind of joking around you do when you don’t know much about a thing but pretend that you do. I’m talking about he “PFT, whatevs” attitude that so many people have when they…

When I was a brand new skinny Twink,  all shiny and bouncy I quickly discovered that I was attracted to fit muscular Jocks. Okay nothing new there you may say, but I also learned that as a general rule the guys I was attracted too were mostly only attracted to guys like themselves.
