Connection gay dating
It seems everyone where I live in New York has an entertaining gay officemate and water-cooler conversations revolving around dating, where the OGC routinely delivers the wittiest bits of interpersonal disaster.
My well-meaning friends invariably get into set-up mode: You should go out with my friend!

Then again, maybe it's better the stories come a bit lower. The description reads: One man's ongoing journey from flab to fab.
Well, that's awesome PR at a time when homosexuals are trying to gain traditional marriage rights!
Frequently, the OGF isn't even an "F," but is more of a "C"a colleague.
Again, the trend is short military haircuts, smooth tanned chests, and luminous teeth: a commercial ideal. There are plenty of gay clubs and bars in New York that are filled with gay clones: beefy, pierced and tan, or, waifish, thin and hip. I'm into physical fitness and I rarely leave the house without Bumble & Bumble Sumo Tech in my hair.
But I refuse to deplete my bank account by commercially predicted increments: 0 a year for the tanning salon, 5 for hair shaped by a former ice sculptor, for salmon and teal striped gym shorts, and so on.
The straight guys are coached and clothed in the very stuff required of fashionable, cool gay men worthy of the modifiergay. I'm not only a separatist from commercialized gay culture, I also don't want to be a part of the gay social scene, a big part of which is known as the circuit. No matter the theme, the result is the same: a lot of gay men, wearing very little clothing. The best definition of the circuit comes from Circuit Noize.com, the website for the magazine, (yes with a Z), that regularly chronicleswhat else?
The implied message is that gay men had better buy this stuff lest they fail to be the kind of gay that is regaled by the culture at large. This is a bunch of thematic parties (from black leather to Sesame Street fetishes) in major U. the circuit: The Circuit is a series of gay dance parties that are held around the world.
