I adore Neil, and as such, I’ve accepted that David is in his life and hoped for the best. But David seems… I don’t know. I can’t put my finger on it. He’s like Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm’s girlfriend. I’m annoyed by them, but I can’t figure out if it’s just jealousy or because Westfeldt and Burtka are simply annoying people. How Neil met David… I ran into my friend Kate one day and she was with this brooding, James Dean–type guy in a leather jacket who gave me the head nod and then turned away.

A Reflection On Grindr

That I knew Grindr and I would always have a rocky relationship. I whole heartedly believe that sex between two men can be a beautiful thing, as well as an inspiration to watch. However, going onto Grindr and meeting up for sex can be an entirely empty experience, but as empty experiences go it’s pretty darn dandy. Sex and I go way back. It’s like money, only too much is enough. I wasn’t an early bloomer you see. Anyway, the first thing we are faced with when we fire up Grindr is the array of profile pictures on display. There is also the tedious predictability of the names on any of these gay based apps. "Stretch" Posters by Photosguy. "One of God's Better People" Posters by Andrei Vishnyakov.

Andrew Ahn Filmmaker Andrew Ahn came out in grand, cinematic fashion. Too timid to tell his family himself, he made a short film, Dol, about a Korean-American man coming out to his own family, which was played by Ahn's own family. "I knew I wouldn’t be able to tell them, to say the words ‘I’m gay,' so I cast my family in the film, but never told them that it was about a gay Korean-American man. The filmmaking process both distracted from and prepared me for the inevitable – that I would eventually have to show my parents the finished film," Ahn said when Dol premiered at Sundance. 2.

Second Class Citizens

There are many areas in which gays, lesbians, & bisexuals do not have the same rights & opportunities as others in society. We must change this now. I want to make a documentary that encompasses all areas in which we are discriminated against.

There is far too much hate directed towards our community and I want to capture that hate on camera. I am not a second class citizen. The idea for this documentary was born when I first learned that California's Proposition 8 had passed, defining marriage only between a man & woman in that state.
