Óle to the homo

Make your own Valentine's gay cards
Feb 13 2013 | Aren't we all tired of the rows upon rows of boring-as-sin Valentine's Day cards?
It's easy to think we can sit down one night with a bottle and a box of chocolate and make our own cards, but really, that'll never happen.

Fab #470: The Boys of Bay Street
Feb 13 2013 | Although it may see that we're rolling in mountains of money at Fab, taking baths with $100 bills and shredding 50s to cushion our office chairs, it's actually quite the opposite.

Sex for days
Feb 11 2013 |
Sometimes a hot rumble in the sack can last a good, solid 45 minutes. Hell, sometimes even 50! Other times, it can last five, and while often that’s more than enough, there are certain situations and men with whom we wish the bumping of uglies would last for hours. The duration of a sexcapa
Next gay theatre review: [title of show]
Feb 09 2013 | An unfortunate snowstorm reduced the audience for [title of show] to just a handful. An enthusiastic and very entertained handful, but when a show is so dependent on breaking the fourth wall and creating an insider-complicity the empty seats caused a serious problem.

This Valentine’s Day, someone you care about will hand you a foil-wrapped brown blob masquerad-ing as “fine chocolate.” Because you’re a trooper, you’ll take one for the team and eat it. Chocolate’s chocolate, am I right?
No. There’s greater similarit
