  • Comic-Con 2014: The Perfect Overlap of Gay and Geek Cultures

    On July 24, as throngs of Southern California’s nerd communities fill the San Diego Convention Center, you’ll probably see a pair of gay teenagers walking hand-in-hand through the crowd, dressed as Marvel Comics’ premier adolescent same-sex couple, Wiccan and Hulking. You’re just as likely to witness a pixyish lesbian flitting from one stall to the next decked out as a feminized Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians. And please God let there be a Namor the Submariner clad in nothing but a shimmering green speedo, swimming through the convention floor’s ocean of flannel and snarky T-shirts.

  • GaymerX: Video Gaming LGBTs Get Together to Change a Culture

    It’s difficult to sum up exactly what a “gaymer” is. It requires explaining years of history, experiences—and even pain—into a few words; an impossible task. There are no words to describe a gay or trans video game enthusiast’s feeling of being around such a supportive community, created in spite of being seen as unnecessary by most of the world. Last year, in the middle of a hotel lobby in San Francisco, I found myself standing inside what most felt was an impossibility. At GaymerX, the world’s first and only gaming convention catering to LGBT audiences, I was surrounded by so many people I never thought I’d have the opportunity to meet. I felt incredibly lucky that an event like this would happen every year.

  • Ian Ziering Has a Body by Chippendales (And You Can, Too)

    Move over, Steve Sanders. Ian Ziering is officially sexier today—at 50 years old, no less—than he was in the ‘90s. Last year, the Beverly Hills 90210 alum metamorphosed his physique when he joined the Chippendales show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas as the production’s guest host. As of this month, Ziering is back in the all-male revue with a body that’s fitter than ever. 

    Of course, fans of camp-tastic sci-fi films will also know Ziering from his Twitter-trending work in the made-for-TV instant cult classic Sharknado, the sequel for which is on its way to viewers. But to get a glimpse of Ziering’s statuesque bod, you’ll have to travel to Vegas for the real thing. The actor’s chiseled torso will be disappointingly absent from Sharknado 2.

Founded by a cadre of DJs and music lovers (James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Severino and “Filthy” Luke Howard), the male collective spins the sounds of classic and rare disco, Italo funk and happy synth pop on dance floors all over the globe. They also curate and mix these gems for mass consumption, as they’ve done with the release of the two-disc Horse Meat Disco Vol. IV. I spoke with Howard about what makes horse meat taste so good.
