They say if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere. Being in the belly of the beast myself for the past seven years or so, especially coming from the generation where the economy was at its worst, that statement could not be truer as millions of us had to develop a tenacious attitude like no other in order to overcome the pitfalls of what was going on and thrive on our own.

Times Square Has Zero Appeal Anymore… Tourists Wake Up
I am someone who grew up around and in Manhattan, and have and will always love this city. Heck, I even created a website all about it! The problem that Manhattan seems to have on a larger scale each year is the most visited place in the world- Times Square. This is an area that for years upon years was a mecca of unique opportunity, fascinating stores and people, and what made New York City so special. Now, all it seems to me is a strip mall that you can go to in your local city. [Read more…] about Times Square Has Zero Appeal Anymore… Tourists Wake Up

There Needs to be Mutual Respect Between Older & Younger Gay Men
As someone who has been part of the bear and gay community as a whole for twelve years now, I have seen a bevy of trends come and go in our culture, yet there is a constant that remains throughout it and that is an incredible lack of respect from younger and older gay men to each other that needs to stop immediately. Seeing as we can be a culture that hardly comes together as a community with how vicious we can be, it can be something as simple as this that can break these walls downs and we can unite better as a culture.

For so many reasons, this is true. As someone who understands the Manhattan scope of dating, living, and so much more, Carrie represents really the anti of what our city has become.
