Our current issue of G Philly features a collection of wildly entertaining Six-Word Memoirs, which we produced in partnership with SMITH Magazine’s Six-Word Memoir Project.

Eric Thomas; the Attic Youth Center's Kemar Jewel; and attorney and Mazeppa Productions managing director Brian Seaman. In six words: Come. Be Gay. Laugh. Cry. Enjoy.
