    Aging as a Transman - Sex and all that jazz - Buck Angel!

    Aging as a Transman - Sex and all that jazz - Buck Angel!

    He's in his late 50's. He's a trailblazer. He's done porn, and he's a man. A transman, and he's got something to say about being a man of a certain age in the LGBTQ community. Never one to walk away from a fight or a belief system, Buck Angel is coming out swinging as a man in his 50's letting everyone know that TRANPA is in the house. But what is TRANPA? An elder TRANSMAN who is not going to be told, " Go sit down TRANPA and let us younger TRANSMEN take the lead now!" All Buck is asking for is some respect. Respect for those who've gone before us all in our fight for equality rights and voice as we age with grace and dignity.

    Let Go Of Your Ex or Shut The F#CK Up - Rick Clemons

    Let Go Of Your Ex or Shut The F#CK Up - Rick Clemons

    Break ups are inevitable. Don't believe it ? Watch any episode or Queer as Folk, The "L"Word, or Pose and the truth will show you it's real. Of course, what would be a smashing break up without the almighty "pining and swooning after your Ex?" Right? Well stop that crap and get over them already. Here's a handful of magic, and I'm not talking about what's in some man's crotch, to help you get over your ex. Well maybe a man's crotch is part of the solution, but there's better ways to move beyond the man who broke your heart!

    The life of the party without the booze - Erik Svendsen

    The life of the party without the booze - Erik Svendsen

    What happens when you grow up a good little Catholic boy, who as a young adult gets sucked into the gay scene in South Florida? You drink, you drink, and you drink and realize this is the way you connect, until the day you screw it up. And then, screw it up again, and then again! Red, blue, and gay...and not in a good way. That's what we are exploring today, is when your addiction takes over your life, and you find yourself more lonely and disconnected than ever as a gay man.
    About ErikI am a 42 year old gay man living in sunny Fort Lauderdale, FL. I grew up in upstate NY and had a great upbringing. Going to Catholic School from Kindergarten to 5th grade was something that has stuck with me for years as a gay man.
    I remember my first kiss in 3rd grade when I kissed a boy in the bathroom at school. In 5th grade i can recall my classmates asking what team i would be on when there was a project that was boys on one team and girls on another. After 5th grade, my Catholic School closed and i went to public school which was an eye opener. Shortly after high school i moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL and became immersed in the gay culture. After about 5 years I moved back to NY to start college which I completed in 4 years and the day of graduation i drove over to Los Angeles, CA where I started a phenomenal career in video production for a Trial Consulting Firm.
    In 2010 i got my 1st DUI, which is when i started to think i had a problem with alcohol. During that same year, i moved back to Fort Lauderdale which was paid for by the company i was working for as their main office was here in South Florida. 3 years later, i got a 2nd DUI which devastated me and i thought i could be a "normal drinker". I tried moderation for 5 years until 3 weeks after my 40th birthday when i got a 3rd DUI. These past two years i have been working on becoming the best version of me through different recovery programs such as AA, Refuge Recovery, and Recovery Elevator with a whole lot of therapy and a 30 day inpatient treatment program sprinkled in there as well.
    I've learned that i can still be the "life of the party" without the booze!!!!!

Like Chatting With Friends

I’ve known Rick to always be a great conversationalist, and that talent shows up in each episode. He included me in a podcast, and it was like catching up with a friend I hadn’t talked to for some time. Listen to Rick’s podcasts, and you’ll feel welcomed and included...like catching up with friends.

Great info for all!

I recently had the privilege of being a guest on Rick’s show. After the invitation, I began listening to previous episodes. I know it’s a podcast by a man for men, but there is truly great information and inspiration for all! And honestly, as a woman, what better way to know what is really going on with you guys than to eavesdrop on these conversations.
