During Pride month, the U.S. Department of Labor will honor his efforts to promote equality and end discrimination in the workforce by inducting him into its Hall of Honor. The tribute is shared by only a handful of people, including Edward M. Kennedy, FrancesPerkins, BayardRustin, and DoloresHuerta, “who have made life-changing contributions in the field of labor, elevating working conditions, wages, and the overall quality of life of America’s working families.”
A press release from the U.S. Department of Labor details Kameny’s contributions:
After everything was tallied and crunched, Philadelphia found itself at No. 6 on the list, just behind Baltimore and ahead of Seattle and Salt Lake City. The top 10 are represented in this nifty infographic:
Philadelphia scored particularly high in the municipal equality index part, with a score of 116. That number, NerdWallet says, tied San Francisco for the highest in its study. “Philadelphia scored high for its nondiscrimination and relationship recognition policies, LGBT services and relationship with the community.” More on their Philadelphia findings:

Back in 2013, we published “8 Most Realistic Gay Sex Scenes in the Movies,” but times have changed and there have been plenty other gay sex scenes that have graced both the big and small screens. We rounded up 11 that will surely get it a little hot in here, including scenes starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper. But it’s not all about the steam factor. These are the scenes we feel get it right, because we deserve realistic sex scenes in our movies, too, dammit. With that being said: These are all NSFW, so play at your own risk.
A new study out of Harvard proves what horn dogs have been trying to tell us for years: orgasming doesn’t only feel good—it can make you live longer, too!
The study reveals that men who ejaculate more often during their lifetime—about 21 times a month—have a 22 percent lower risk of getting prostate cancer.
There’s some heft behind the results, too: There were 32,000 males in good health involved in the study over the course of 18 years, which makes it the largest scientific study to date on male ejaculation. To get the results, subjects chronicled and shared their monthly ejaculation practices—from masturbation to full-on sex—between the ages of 20 and 29, and 40 and 49.
The second season of Mr. Everything comes to an end this week with the five finalists vying for the honor of being named Philly’s best male-identified performer. The evening will include performances from former Mr. and Miss Everything winners Kemar Jewel and SapphiraCristal, respectively.
Nothing says “boner killer” like going to U Bar on a first date.
I’ve been asked to go on first dates at gay bars in Philly more times than I’d care to admit. Usually, my gut reaction is utter disgust: There are like 2,519 other places in this city where you can wine and dine me (and I’ve suggested half of them in text messages), yet you insist that VentureInn is the perfect spot to kindle romantic feelings. Are you out of your goddamned mind?
Then I go. Usually because I’m scared I’m going to end up as that bitter, single old queen in the corner of Knock, drinking a whiskey. And usually, every single occasion ends in disaster. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with these establishments, but they aren’t the best places to get to know someone, and it sure as hell isn’t cute that you’re grabbing a guy’s ass at Tavern who just sang an off-key rendition of “Defying Gravity” from Wicked when you should have been grabbing mine. That’s not a date. Read more »
Pig Iron Theatre Company has been at the avant-garde theater game for 20 years. For the first three-quarters of that run, the troupe could barely make a misstep, somehow producing theater that was both weird and experimental but also entertaining and crowd-pleasing. With its last two shows, however, they’ve run into trouble with theater- goers and critics, including Inquirer whiner TobyZinman, who called them “rubbish” and “a waste,” respectively. So it’s good they’re going more, er, mainstream with their latest: I Promised Myself to Live Faster, an “intergalactic gay extravaganza featuring closeted extraterrestrials, high-stakes pursuits and nuns from outer space.”
But seriously, even Albert Einstein didn’t get the theory of relativity right until the eighth try, and with Pig Iron at the wheel, we’re happy to go along for the gay sci-fi ride, knowing full well that the destination is somewhere we’ve never been before. May 22nd to 31st, FringeArts, 140 North Columbus Boulevard, Old City.
