So my question is, does your “preference” prefer YOU? - Jonathan @stdior

I fit most stereotypes that make up a gay person in the 21st century, EXCELLING in the arts, avoiding anything that made me sweat, and LIVING for fashion. I always like to state that I was a musician by genes and a model by choice. As I’ve grown older I’ve found myself diminishing from the vivacious and outgoing personality I once was. While in High School I truly believed I would’ve been able to take being gay to be grave, but it slowly ate away at my core. I NEVER liked the term “Coming Out” unless singing the Diana Ross hit single, so I referred to it as letting people in. I want to encourage and lift up everyone who...

We first met in a what's app group..

On July of 2014 we first met in a what's app group. At the same time I was introduced to this group by a friend, Thiago called me on a private chat to talk directly with me. At this time, I was living in Sao Paulo and Thiago in Rio de Janeiro. Our conversation took almost 12 hours, what made Thiago buy a flight to Sao Paulo to stay with me. The moment that he arrived and I finally could see and touch him was fascinating on that morning of July 26. Since this first moment together, our life's Changed... I asked his mother a permission to date him... we made our first international travel  to Ireland, and then, Thiago moved to...

Mateo Lane

I’m Italian, Mexican and Irish. I feel guilt for everything. If it’s cloudy I think, “it’s probably my fault”. But I’ve gotten past my catholic guilt and found acceptance in myself and my body. I feel that I’m on a good path in life right now. I have a beautiful boyfriend, a fun career and I live in the best city in the world. Who knows where life will take me, but I hope I’m setting up a solid foundation now to be able to handle whatever it throws at me.

Meet Ming

I come from a religious immigrant family so being gay wasn't really an option. Coming out to mum and dad was always going to be hard. The night I did, there were a lot of tears but one laugh I now get out of it, over 11 years later, is how my mum said 'I knew I should've never let you watch Will and Grace!!!' I told her THAT isn't why I'm gay. Also, that DVD box set belonged to my brother not me... but cut to 5 years later and my brother came out. #gaybros

@karany1110 & kyle.joseph_

Kyle had just gotten divorced and moved to NYC to start a new life. We both needed someone to live with so we became random roommates. We told ourselves that we were just “friends with benefits” for the first few weeks. We went out together on NYE 2018 and Kyle was my (first ever) midnight kiss. We’ve been together ever since! Best of all, my gigantic and traditional Afghan-Hindu family has accepted him with open arms, inviting him to weddings, birthday, and Holidays. I can’t wait to see where the next year takes us. Cheers to our first anniversary and celebrating love. - @karany1110 & kyle.joseph_
