Boyfriend got a Girlfriend

Dear GDEMan in nature

I’ve hooked up with this one guy multiple times over the last five years, when ever we are single we get together and have fun. I am gay and he says he is straight but enjoys having sex with me. For the last year we’ve been single and pretty much spent most of our free time…

Quentin Crisp was, simply, the embodiment of Style. This is a photograph of him from 1941. He was a queer philosopher and would go on to be the centre of the discussion in the gay community right up until his death in 1999. Born and raised in and around London, Crisp became disillusioned with England after the prejudice and homophobia that was his day to day life. Encountering and falling in love with US GI’s in WW2, Crisp fell in love with his perception of America and later moved to New York. He once said “As soon as I saw Manhattan I wanted it”. There he stayed and wrote and talked until he returned to England in 1999 to put on a show. He died in Manchester. Crisp’s philosophies of individualism, style, and the work he did for LGBT people continues to this day.

Road Trip to NaNo: The Art of Writing Monsters

Postcard from Sydney, Australia

November is coming. To get ready, we’re taking a road trip starting in Sydney, Australia, and winding our way back to Berkeley, CA. On the way, we’ll hear from Wrimos about how their cities can inspire your writing. Today, Sydney Municipal Liaisons Nick and Hong challenge you to create a specific kind of character:

Mention Sydney, Australia and the usual images come to mind: the elegant sails of the Opera House shining white and bright in the midday sun, or vast hordes swarming to sandy beaches with beers and towels in hand. With our iconic arched bridge spanning a crystalline harbour, it’s easy to think Sydney is far removed from the dangers associated more readily with Australia’s ‘outback’ or ‘bush’.

That’s your first mistake.
