Share Your Story

I’m hoping that together we can build this project into a community, where people can share of their stories and experiences in the places that they live regarding their own identities. I think it’s amazing that people visit this blog from all over the world–from places as varied as Iraq to South Africa to Brazil to Serbia to Vietnam to Bangladesh. People have visited from 161 countries so far!

I’d really love to hear your stories. Send me a note–whether you’re a gay man or woman, trans, straight, queer, friend, ally–whatever. I’d love for you to be a part of the project. I’ll post your story, and if you want to send pictures, I’ll post those too.

You can e-mail them to me at:

    HI Kevin,

    First of all, this is such a great space. I love the variety of men whose stories you share here. Adam Hurly is a friend of mine, who shared this site with me and I just wanted to say that I’d love to be a part of the project If you’re interested. Let me know.

    Thanks!

    I’ve been following your blog for a while. I think it’s a great thing. I also think of the question – what being gay means to me, I guess I would say, everything and nothing, to be tragic (drama queen!). Now, that being said, I always knew I was gay, so I know not much else. What I see is a photogenic group of people who – well, look nothing like me. I don’t mean that ethnically or anything. But, while I am drawn to your blog, there’s a part of me that feels more excluded. As as self proclaimed well adjusted gay man in his thirties….I guess the gay thing never “clicked” with me or with others. I dream of that domestic life of having kids and settling down. I don’t dream of yachts or trips to Paris. But, I think being gay and not looking like the ideal (read: ugly) has affected me in some way. If i were to tell me story, I guess I’d say I have great friends, a good job, etc. But -I can’t get a date. While single-dom doesn’t affect me too much at that point, I guess I also know there’s something that…just makes me feel excluded. So, there – that’s my story.

    HI Kevin,

    I’m 18 who would love to share there coming out story to the world. There is thousands of gay men and boys that need a little bit of a push to show how amazing it is to be somone you really are instead of somone your trying to be. This project is perfect for everyone struggling with their sexuality.

    It’s not just the big cities where Gay folk live, but also in rural America and rural world. Would love to hear from some of those out there living and working on farms with or without their partners and husbands. Awesome place to visit is Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem and to see how Gay men there are breaking the Arab-Jewish conflict down in mixed partnerships.
