It is one of those moments that’s leaving us shaking our heads: ESPN’s coverage of Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL player, has reverted to an utterly important topic: how he is taking his showers while in training camp. Read more »
This week we’re focusing on the those who bring a little something extra to our Instagram feeds—that cock of the hip, a hand on the waist, maybe even a booty tooch—you know the ones. It’s the Gayborhood’s fiercest posers.
It didn’t take long after I downloaded Secret, the new app that allows users to write anonymous postings about others and share them with a network of “friends,” before I found one about me; see below:

Big news out of our sister city to the west. New rules out of the Pittsburgh Episcopal Diocese say clergy can now sign marriage certificates between same-sex couples. Some background from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Every week, Philly gay gents share their local picks for Man Crush Monday. This week we had the Boys of Summer Swimsuit Party give us their favorites.
To mark the return of Boys of Summer this weekend we've chosen a handful of our 2014 lifeguards. Keep in mind that these guys are more than just an army of hard chests and ripped abs. They are lawyers, doctors, volunteers—folks working to make the community better. And, hey, they just so happen to look amazing in a Speedo. For more information about our weekend-long itinerary of Boys of Summer events, go here. But first, ogle our picks for Man Crush Monday:
Marcous is a new lifeguard this year after having gone to Boys of Summer for the first time last year. He’s sweet, funny and has a chest you can’t miss. He’s planning on getting his PhD in social psychology in the hopes of one day becoming a professor.
Brandon has an amazing smile and incredible hair. He spends most of his time doing vegan advocacy with the Humane League of Philadelphia, and recently had Meatless Mondays approved in the Philadelphia school district
Dark, muscled, tattooed, sexy and the nicest guy you will meet. You might not realize he has a PhD and is a college professor. Brains and brawn.
Steven is coming all the way from Ohio with his boyfriend for the party—now that is dedication. Originally from Hawaii, he’s now an attorney.
Good things come in small packages. Dash may be shorter than most of the lifeguards, but he’s solid muscle from his time on the Temple Men's Gymnastics Team. Dash dedicates much of his time to volunteering—always willing to give back to his community— and he works with City Year helping local students achieve success.
This is Jovany's first Boys of Summer, as he just turned 21 last Thursday. He stays in amazing shape with judo and he’s currently on the Dean's List while getting his BS/MS in psychology. He intends to pursue his clinical doctorate in the near future.
Submit your Man Crush Monday!
Here are the rules: (1) Name five to 10 guys you’re crushing on, and tell us why they have your heart aflutter (2) You and all men involved have to be from Philadelphia (3) Email your crushes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last Five Man Crush Mondays:
This weekend, the gays took over Atlantic City with the annual circuit party Sand Blast. Attendance was high, primarily for the boys, with lots of muscle heads that hailed from all over the U.S. We were there for most of the weekend to catch all the action. Check out these snaps from the main event, a beach party on Saturday that brought out lots of hotties from near and far.
The passage of marriage equality in May was such a major—and quite frankly unexpected—triumph, that it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that we still have such a long way to go in securing complete freedom for the LGBT community. Archaic laws still exist across the country that are keeping us down, and perpetuating horrible stigmas. Take, for instance, the USDA and FDA’s 1983 regulation that says any man who has had sexual contact with another male since 1977 (!) is restricted from donating blood.

Bobby Norris and Harry Derbidge wear the utterly unflattering “string lateral flash” swimsuit. Don’t do this at home, please.
Okay, we’ve been flooded with pictures on Facebook of the very strange, very odd, very uncomfortable men’s swimwear trend that looks across between a thong and a boomerang. Yes, this is a thing, and we here at G Philly want to make a clear and resounding message: this bathing suit is not okay. Read more »
