    Hi, my name is Jason Bing. I’m a photographer in Portland, Oregon. This looks like an awesome project! I would be very interested in working on a Portland version if you would be interested… I am in the process of revamping my web site but I’m happy to send some examples of my work.

    thanks for the chance to see the blog… I find it fascinating at many levels. I guess that they are location, identity, lifestyle and more. Being from Australia and Melbourne (said to be the most European city in Oz) I find the housing in NY, tight. We are very spoiled here for space. Identity for me is diversity and just being who we are, how we want to be. Lifestyle is how we live and in Australia, regardless of location we do live a very different life, more outside, and sadly often hidden. So for me, the celebration of me, you and us, is diversity and survival. The world would be away less amazing place without us.

      Hey Peter, thanks so much for the message! I’d love to see Melbourne someday…. definitely keep in touch, maybe someday I can photograph you for the project. My goal for this project is to create a community of gay men, hopefully globally, so your support means a lot to me. I agree, the world would be a less amazing place without us! kisses. kt

      Hey Anita, that’s funny you asked, because I’m planning on asking him! He’s on my top list of guys to get! I interned in the photo department of OUT a couple years ago, and would run into him on the elevator occasionally and he was always so nice. I actually have the Fashion Editor (Brent) in the project…I’m in London now, but was going to ask him when I got back. Maybe you can help encourage him to do it!! 😉

    Thanks for the “lovely” tribute to gay men and friends. By far, your self-portrait is my favorite pic.

    • thegaymenproject

      Hey Samuel, thanks for writing. I want you to know it really means a lot. This project has become quite an obsession for me, and sometimes I question the fact that I’m devoting almost entirely all my time and energy to it (when I went to London, I didn’t leave room to visit one museum! Too busy photographing) so it means a lot when people reach out and send me little reminders that I do have an audience and my work is worthwhile. Keep coming back, and send me a message every once in a while. Cheers! Kevin

    I hope you can reach the Philippines as well where there are a lot of out gay men. And especially in the Fashion industry. I know for once in ur life you went here. :) Hope to meet you as well Kevin. :)

    I was lead here by a link that a friend posted on Facebook and I must say that I love the idea of this. I think it can possibly serve as a comfort zone for people out there that are gay and maybe have no one to connect or turn to for solace and release. I wish you luck on this project and am excited to see it blossom and expand! I am a fan.

    cheers from tijuana / san diego area.

    This is probably the most influential and true project I’ve ever seen on gay men. I’ve seen it always stereotyped to the white guy (ironically enough I am white). But it’s nice to see other people getting the recognition. it’s awesome! sad not to see Wisconsin in it…

  12. Luc

    Hello, my name is Luc. I’m a Belgian and I have been living for almost 15 years with my boyfriend who is from Rwandees origine. I would love to be photographed by you and be part of your project. So let me know if you would cole to. Belgium :-)
    Kind regardes,

  13. Anthony

    Hello, am Anthony from Beirut, Lebanon. It’s a really great project, thank you for sharing those stories and photos with us.
    You definitely got my support ! Hope you’d come one day to the middle east and more precisely to Lebanon.
    Good Luck !

  15. Thh

    Love what you’re doing. Hope someday I’ll share my story too. For now I just read and get all the hope you spread thanks to this awesome projet, it is so inspiring. Thank you.

  16. aboy

    I really appreciate what You are doing, this means so much to me and puts a big smile on my face. Gives me hope since I am fairly closeted. It would be amazing if You would come to Lithuania since I have not seen any gay men where I live and it’s quite a taboo to be gay. Would be interesting if You would get one to tell a story.

      • aboy

        It’s not too good. There’s a lot of hate. We are a post-soviet country and maybe that is what stops us as a society to be as tolerant and accepting. But the new generations are getting better at this, so maybe there’s hope. As being gay myself, I am not too familiar with what it’s like to be gay in Lithuania since I just came out to myself and havent found ways to express myself or find any other gay men and how to live like a gay man. It should be better in the capital Vilnius. There were a few prides going, but all I know is that it went kind of horrible with a lot of hate and violance, or maybe thats the only thing that our media showed. But who knows, maybe I’m just being too pessimistic about it. Anyways, I believe it is getting better.

  17. Bill

    Fantastic project, Kevin; kudos for undertaking the endeavor to showcase gay men in all their diverse and varied lives, in stark contrast to the usual tiresome images involving the White Party, Mardi Gras etc. etc. The photos beautifully encapsulate the essence of each subject in his native surroundings. Well, at least, as much as a stranger peering in could ever gain from the outside. Ironically, the success of projects including this one will hopefully extinguish the need for it in the first instance. Until then, I wish you much luck and success in completing this worthwhile project.

  18. Maxim Muzychenko

    Oh my God! I can’t believe my eyes… Kevin, thank you so much for this project. It’s absolutely unbelievable and very social. Who could ever imagine than somebody will do this?… The Catalog Of Gay Men!!! I’m so emotional because it touching me so deep. My name is Maxim and I live in Russia, Vladivostok. Was born in a small miner’s city and only at 21 yo I dared to say that I’m gay. Now I am 29, living with my partner for more than 6 years. I have a great job, travelling around the globe and have a lot of friends who share me identity. I just want to say you very thank you, because living in Russia as a gay man is not easy ))) but I held my back up high! Thank you soooooo much for such fabulous project which help to us recognize and understand who we are and what we run! Maxim

    Saw the kickstarter.

    Great idea! Love it!

    Getting paid to travel the world and getting laid with other men and spreading love and occasionally AIDs.

  20. Alejandro Garcia Caro

    Hi, My Name is Alejandro, I live in Cd. Juarez Chiuahua Mexico (Border with El Paso Tx. ) I think is an awesome project and I will like to be in one of your pictures with my partner in live Emmanuel, we have almost 7 years living together and we been an example of marriage for our families and friends. Thanks :)


    I love the project you have undertaken. Life is full of highs and lows that can be accentuated by being gay. I have lived all over the US and now in South America. At 39 my career as a surgeon was taken away from me by rheumatoid arthritis. It led me to a life of humanitarian aide work that is incredibly fulfilling. Fortunately, I have had the good fortune to travel much of the world, I find that much of are struggles are the same, however, they can be amplified by social/economic status. As an expat living in Colombia, I am afforded a very accepting life, while the gay Colombian next to me might not. It was eyeopening how advanced Colombian society was in its laws protecting gays and lesbians. Best wishes for your continued project.

    Gay men exist in all sizes of cities and towns, but you have chosen to focus on the typical places. Everyone else is invisible. I appreciate your effort but it also belies your mindset about where gay men are supposed to live.

  23. Peter

    Hi Kevin,
    What a wonderfull idea. Gave me a smile on my face. I do hope so much that this site will be viewed by lots of scared, bullied, selfhating but oooh so wonderfull gay men and women who doubt themselves, want to change themselves, hide themselves and lie about themselves not knowing that they are so beautifully perfect being who they are. That this site can give them courage, hope and strength to make the decisions that can help them to have a free, open and accomplished life. Thanks to you…little bringer of light, love and tolerance…
    Je t’embrasse..

  24. Lemar

    I saw all of your posts on about the Undetectable study,I just want to say THANK YOU! Thanks for standing up for all of us. You are so knowledgeable and I appreciate that. Those guys were a mess, and you handled it all in a very pleasant,informative, mature, and positive way! xoxo

    Most of the homosexual males are not realy homosexual males, just rubbing body together with males became realy convenient.

  26. Natalia Orube
