Can Two Gay Guys Be Best Friends?

Can Two Gay Guys Be Best Friends? | Gay News | Scoop.it

"Thank God for besties. They’re always there for you in your time of need with no judgments or questions. Ideally, they have roughly the same tastes as you and have a similar life structure – which is what drew you to each other in the first place.


But what if you’re both gay guys? Would there start to be an attraction over time?"

This Extraordinary Pope

This Extraordinary Pope | Gay News | Scoop.it

"I’ve just watched the actual video of Pope Francis’ airplane press conference, and it’s even more remarkable than the quotes we gleaned earlier from reporters like John Allen. What’s so striking to me is not what he said, but how he said it: the gentleness, the humor, the transparency. I find myself with tears in my eyes as I watch him. I’ve lived a long time to hear a Pope speak like that – with gentleness and openness, reasserting established dogma with sudden, sweeping exceptions that aren’t quite exceptions – except they sure sound like them."

Her Dad Thinks Being Gay Was Her Choice. The Words She Said Back? Couldn't Have Chosen Them Better.

Her Dad Thinks Being Gay Was Her Choice. The Words She Said Back? Couldn't Have Chosen Them Better. | Gay News | Scoop.it

"As the gay child of two very religious parents, I've learned that there are two ways I can bring up my love life: 1. The "Vague Pronoun" Method; or 2. the "Mention Anything and Ruin Everyone's Day with the Inevitable Argument That May End in a Slammed Door or a Skipped Holiday" Method. That's no way for a family to remain healthy.

Luckily for us, Stef Foster (Teri Polo) from ABC Family's "The Fosters" knows just what to say to her father (Sam McMurray) who doesn't keep an open dialog with his kid. Share this if you want people to see things from another perspective."

'This Is a Public Health Failure': New York City's Troubling Silence on Morning-After HIV Meds

'This Is a Public Health Failure': New York City's Troubling Silence on Morning-After HIV Meds | Gay News | Scoop.it

"But perhaps a bigger question is: Eight years into the CDC putting its stamp of approval on PEP as a measure to block HIV infection, why do so few people — especially gay men, who continue to make up the city's highest rate of HIV infections — know what it is or where to get it? Especially in a city that ranks with L.A. and Miami as having the highest HIV rates in the country. Not to mention a city whose health department obviously cares about preventing HIV and has put considerable money and effort into widely distributing its ownbranded condoms."

Overrun by spambots, gay dating app Grindr to end anonymous signups

Overrun by spambots, gay dating app Grindr to end anonymous signups | Gay News | Scoop.it

"Earlier this year, users of the popular gay hookup and dating app Grindr started seeing a sharp increase in the number of attractive men saying hello to them. Handsome, muscled, and stripped to the waist, the men introduced themselves with a handful of stock greetings. "Poke." "Hey buddy." "Hey sexy." Say hello back and they’ll respond with a quick story about how incredibly frisky they are feeling. It seems that they have just gotten home from the gym, and are about to remove all their clothing. Perhaps you’d be up for a quick video chat?

In this case, what might seem too good to be true actually is. Some of the most provocative profiles on Grindr aren’t men at all, but spambots designed to lure credulous users into turning over their credit-card information."
