Nash Grier, youtube star, kissed a gay fan to prove he's not homophobic...after he made a gay slur. He apologized first, but then thought he had to do more. I've read that a lot of people weren't happy with his apology.
If saying sorry isn't enough, will kissing a gay fan go some way in remedying it?
Does it really matter? It obviously does. This entire debacle just seems to be overflowing with tawdry self-promotion in an attempt to gain even more cheap publicity.
But it is a trend, a new sign of pop culture, and I find it as fascinating as watching people give away hard earned money to questionable crowdfunding campaigns.
The presumably gay fan shared the experience on Snapchat and later on Tumblr (hayesgriersluts), writing: 'To all the people complaining about Nash being a homophobic who’s against gays; He willingly kissed a boy just for a Snapchat story on top of apologizing twice.'
You can't blame a guy for coming up with a great gimmick. I don't think Grier is homophobic. Grier is obviously reaching a lot of people and he's doing something right. I would have told him to kiss my ass. But at least he did kiss a gay guy. For the attention he's getting I'd kiss Rosie O'Donnell.

Atlantic City Gay Mayor
Even though I live about fifty miles from the New Jersey shore, I know nothing about it and I've only been there a few times in my life. It's interesting because I'm always telling myself that Tony and I should go check it out. But we don't get time to get away often and when we do we'd rather go to Cape Cod or Long Island. In any event, Atlantic City gay Mayor, Don Guardian, is trying to make the city gayer. It's interesting to see that this comes at a time when it was recently announced that several high profile gambling casinos are shuttering their doors very soon.
From re-naming an official gay beach to three summertime LGBTI events, Atlantic City officials seem hungry for the pink dollar.
In a beachside resort known more for gambling than for its gay scene (most recently the town's gay venue Pro Bar closed after three years), politicians are doing a big PR push to court LGBTI travelers.

I don't know how this will work with respect to the way gay men are evolving. In other words, the gay ghetto concept is still around in many places, but it's not as popular as it once was.
He Won't Let Him Bottom
Every now and then I check out this web site where someone asks a question and it's answered by an "expert," Mona. In this case I'm talking about a guy who has a boyfriend who refuses to let him bottom. Or, rather, the boyfriend refuses to top to him.
Sexually, I am the bottom in my relationship. My boyfriend refuses to top for me. Even though he is only a year older, he has more sexual experience and has dated many more guys than I have. I feel as if he is not letting me experience new things. I've told him how I feel many of times and nothing has happened. Do you think I need more experience to be happy in this relationship? Should I be more aggressive or should I cheat on him to get what I want?
You can read Mona's answer here. It's a lot of crap.
Frankly, it sounds me as if they're both bottoms and one isn't telling the whole truth, so help him God. I've never met a top guy who couldn't wait to get into a bottom guy's pants. In most cases you can't get them off you!!
