G Philly’s Summer Issue Out Tomorrow

Our smokin’ hot guide is stuffed with everything you need to make the most out of your summer.

It may not seem like it with all this wishy-washy weather we’ve been having, but summertime is rapping on our gay doors. And, oh look, it comes bearing a special gift: the Summer Issue of G Philly! This edition of our glossy quarterly is packed with all kinds of goodies meant to help you get the most out of the upcoming summer months. Here’s a little taste of what’s inside:


  • Alexander Kacala provides a 24/7 guide to Rehoboth, with insider tips, recommendations on the best accommodations and, of course, where to find the boys.
  • In “Straight Talk,” we asked hetero writer Joseph Van Dusen to tell us what straight men really think about us. The answers are intriguing.
  • Brandon Baker gets an exclusive interview with the sister of late gay porn star Joey Stefano in a bio that traces the actor’s journey from Chester, Pa. to adult-film stardom.


  • What’s better than a summertime slice of pie? Trey Popp rounds up his favorite Philly pizza joints.
  • In our “Long Weekend” feature we make the case that, yes, shore snobs, Atlantic City has all the makings of an impeccable gay getaway.
  • Matt Perez takes us inside a mod penthouse that’s pulled together from repurposed materials.


  • Besides the photos of our cover model Gunnar Montana (how hot is he?!), we dish with other local Romeos Calvin Phun and Jerrell Goodson


The issues are being distributed to 108 locations all over the Greater Philadelphia region tomorrow — from the Gayborhood (12th Street Gym, Giovanni’s Room, iCandy) to Rittenhouse (stadler-Kahn, Attic Youth Center) and Passyunk (Chhaya Café, Black N Brew) to North Philly (Temple University’s Howard Gittis Student Center). Or you could take the easy route and have this and future issues dropped straight in your mailbox. It’s free and you can sign up here.

Happy summer gay reading!

    Totally agree on spotting the football! They need to put $5 microchips in each nose of the ball to track its position wirelessly inside the stadium. Then they could say definitively whether it is first down, whether the ball crossed the plane of the goal line, or whether it hit the ground. It’s crazy the way they spot the ball.

  • Joe D

    Good post Sheil. Another thing I noticed when watching the GB-SF game was the amount of scrap heap guys the Packers have gotten contributions from. Guys like DuJuan Harris at RB. Just once I’d like to see the Eagles get someone to play over the head.

  • The Guru

    I just kept thinking about all the chances we had to take all those players in the draft and passed for these stiffs. Just off the top of my head:

    Ray Lewis- Jermaine Mayberry
    Earl Thomas- Brandon Graham
    Colin Kaepernick- Danny Watkins
    KJ Wright- Curtis Marsh
    Torrey Smith/Randall Cobb- Jaiqwuan Jarrett
    Navarro Bowman- Daniel Teo’ Neshium
    Rob Gronkowski, Bradon Spikes- Nate Allen
    Thomas DeCoud- Bryan Smith

      Some of these comparisons aren’t fair. Hind sight is indeed 20/20, and at the time these picks were made based on the needs of the team.

      • The Guru

        The only one I’ll give you is Smith/Cobb. Every other one, we needed a player at that position….and still do.

  • JofreyRice

    Sheil, any post on Jason Lacanforna’s article about Howeird Roseman, the Eagles “shaky GM”?


  • Bdawkbdawk

    I’m okay with us not getting Peyton. Philadelphia gets it hard enough from the National Media without having a HOF QB getting decapitated behind our turnstile oline. I wouldn’t mind seeing Eli’s head rolling around though.

  • DutchEagle

    Am I the only one who does not enjoy watching NE’s offense? Basically just dink-and-dunk. Underneath to Welker, seam to a TE or a dump-off to one of the RB’s. Booorring. I’ll take the Ravens against the Falcons in the Super Bowl.

    • Joe D

      I wouldn’t mind being bored by winning.

      • DutchEagle

        Obviously, but no fun for the ‘neutral’ football fan in my humble opinion.

        • The Guru

          Couldn’t disagree more. It’s a great offense and I find what they do precise and completely interesting in dismantling teams.

  • knighn

    I do agree that a team’s head coach should be able to more easily communicate with the referees. The current system actually discriminates against older NFL head coaches who might not be able to actually run down a sideline to get a ref’s attention.
    The microchips alone won’t be enough to determine the spot of the football. The football can still travel forward after the player carrying the ball has been tackled. Unless the microchips are super brilliant and can tell when a player is “down by contact” the chips will do nothing but make for more expensive footballs.
    However, I do support the use of microchips and other technology in baseball. There will still need to be a human element, but I would like to see more of a universal strike zone, and the ability of Baseball Managers to actually challenge the fallable, human umpires, who act like they are perfect while routinely blowing calls.

  • aub32

    I don’t know about the microchip. Part of the excitement of the game is watching them use the chains to measure a first down. Also, having the human element just makes the game a little more unpredictable. More often than not, spotting the ball is not a problem. I say keep the game the way it is.

  • Aaron

    One diff on that shovel pass: there was the wrinkle of the faked toss to Julio Jones. If only Reid/Marty had thought of that.

  • brza

    I honestly couldn’t stand another Patriots superbowl. I’d much rather hear all about the Harbaugh family for two weeks in order to see 49ers-Ravens. Thats definitely the most interesting game in my opinion.
