We met 6 years ago on a flight to Florida. I never thought in a million years that the love of my life would appear in the seat next to me on a plane. Here we are now, at the place where we first vacationed, the same place we decided to tie the knot. A lot of people say, “it was love at first sight”, but for us, it was, “love at first flight!” Here’s to a new chapter of our lives together.

I feel a strong sense of a global community that we are all united for the first time in a long time. 3. We are noticing positive effects on the environment as we watch pollution rates decline. Just take this time to relax and recharge. We will come out of...

I was born on Oxford Street in Sydney, Australia. My mother went into labour with me in what is now the gayest gym in the country. To say I was born to be gay was an understatement. I’m fact, let’s rewind a bit earlier. In my ultrasound I had my legs crossed and apparently was tucking my dick because the doctor thought that I was a girl, so until the day I was born I was going to be called Samantha. When I look through photo albums (they’re what existed before iPhones) of my childhood, there are so many pics of me playing with dolls, or covered in make up, or in dresses (as early as six months old). Having...
