When I saw this article I had to check it out. I'm a landlord and I'm always curious about articles like this. Mostly, my tenants have been good, but I've had tenants from hell. The most recent one, last year, locked himself out of the apartment at 2 in the morning and instead of calling me and asking me to let him in he decided to break the door down. I'm not joking. He just broke the door down, split it beyond repair, and didn't even say anything until I had to go there and check on something. When I found out about it and I asked him what happened he told me the truth and said he would "glue" the door back together. Well, that's not how that works. You can't glue a door back together. I had to replace a perfectly good door, it was costly, and he wound up moving out. And this is a tenant I gave special permission to keep a puppy after he moved in. That bothered me even more because I found out he was leaving this adorable little puppy alone for hours and hours at a time.
However, what allegedly happened to this gay couple sounds more disturbing.
Crappy landlords. We’ve all had one or two over the course of our adult lives. It’s just the reality of being a renter. But chances are you’ve never had one quite like Olly McLellan and Scott Cole’s.
The couple just went public with their landlord horror story, which includes no shortage of nasty notes, passive aggressive parking insults, illegal trespassing, trash dumps, and harassment all garnished with a healthy serving of homophobia.

Donald Trump LGBTQ Swag
I think we all know by now I always remain objective on this blog when it comes to politics. It's not my job to preach to anyone, and I wouldn't insult you that way. I assume you're coming here to read about books, pop culture, or gay issues, and you're not interested in my politics. The truth is I find it difficult to get really excited about either Trump or Clinton.
There are, however, LGBTQ people supporting Trump, and Trump has released a line of swag that ranges from T-shirts to pins just for them.
Dying to show off your LGBTQ pride for Donald Trump?
No? Oh. Well, then you probably don’t care that the reality-TV-star-turned-Republican-nominee-for-President just released his very first piece of LGBTQ swag on his official campaign website.
It’s a rainbow colored t-shirt that says “LGBTQ For Trump” and looks as though it were designed by a very non-LGBTQ graphic design intern who may or may not (probably not) receive college credit for their free labor.

Men's Locker Room Strip Tease: Caught In the Act
Some dude with a lumberjack beard decided to do a strip tease in a locker room, video it on his phone, and he wound up getting caught in the act.
You’ve just finished a particularly intense leg day at the gym, and upon entering the locker room, the unique scent of man-sweat, mildew and cheap shampoo suddenly inspires movement.
No, not the squats or presses of your previous hour’s (or 30 minutes if you’re us) hard work — a different sort of movement. Expression. Finesses. The power of dance compels you!
You can check this out here. There's a video of him getting caught in the act. It's not his best moment...but his adorable expression makes it worth watching.
