The Lesser Discussed Abominations of the Bible: Part 2
Discreet City | By Octavius Williams
First let me say as a non-believer in religion, that I don’t believe in attacking other’s religion or faith. My criticisms and attacks are towards religious hypocrisy.
In religious circles it is spoken that all sins are equal but we all know in reality this is not true. In this day and age around the world, homosexuality is the ultimate sin and abomination.
Why is that?
Ever since posting The Lesser Discussed Abominations of the Bible
, I have come to a startling conclusion concerning how our society’s usage of the Bible to condone homosexuality is a convenient one. I don’t know why I or others have not come to this simple yet forthcoming conclusion before.
My conclusion is that out of the 660 plus sins and 50 plus abominations in the Bible (depending on the version), homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman) is technically the only sin or abomination that cannot be committed or broken by heterosexuals.
Buying Sex from Male Whores
Discreet City l Juan Carlos
The title may seem judgmental but to the bare bones it is what it is.
How many of us are guilty of taking a quick glance at those ads drawn in by impressive bodies, bubble asses, and dicks? We are men and visual creatures. However, at what point does it go a step further to
making a "date" and ultimately paying for sex?
I am an attractive guy and been told a reasonable catch. I garner attention from both sexes and screen due to personal preferences. Being horny and bored during a trip home last year to New York City made me "adventurous" to even make or consider making an attempt to purchase sex.
On a popular site, let's call it “hire-a-man.com”, I saw him. A faceless pic with a great body, nice abs, a phat ass and an 11" penis.
I am a top but seeing another well-endowed guy is a turn on especially if it's flopping against my stomach while I am inside and he is riding me. His rate was $275. During a weak and convoluted state I made contact.
I blame the wood which caused an arterial flow problem from my head to my second head. I never thought I would be a "john". The exchange was direct. He asked for my number to text and sent me a full pic including a clear face shot.
Words of Wisdom
“Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions.” Will Smith“Dating tip # 41.

I’ve never claimed to be a subject-matter expert on many things. I don’t yet have a masters or doctors degrees or specific certifications covering some of the subjects I blog about. Like many bloggers, I write my blog posts coming from my viewpoint, much of which is supported by college education, documented factual information, general life, military, and civilian experiences, and my social interactions with people from all over the world and from all walks of life. Whenever you read this blog, I trust you consider this about me and the things you read as you would any blog. It just makes good sense for you to do that.
Now that the disclaimer is out-of-the-way….
Over the years, I’ve been in debates, classroom discussions, face-to-face arguments, and submitted enough online comments on a few blogs and web forums regarding the existence of bisexuality. I’ve argued on the side of the affirmative because I believe that it does. The question of its existence often gets asked and personally, I simply don’t see why some people have a problem with it. After nearly 10 years of active debate and argument on this one issue, I’m beginning to grow a bit weary of hearing the same rhetoric and baseless arguments which people in both the straight and surprisingly, the LGBT communities like to present. So here’s my final position on the issue, with the hope that I won’t have to revisit it again. My mind is firmly set and I’ll always maintain this position.
Before I begin, first this fact needs to be noted: People are who they are; with each person having his or her own unique, if not often strange, attractions and desires, sexual or otherwise. I say, let people be who they are and fuck the damn labels!

WATCH: Web Series FREEFALL - Episode 2.2 [Open Discussion]
Discreet City | Nicholas Delmacy Here's episode two of the new season of the black gay web series FREEFALL.
I really enjoyed the debate that came out of the first episode
so we'll continue our Open Discussion
format for this one as well. Please throw in your two-cents in the comments section down below to let us all know what you think of the episode, the show itself or anything related to gay content and the web series format in general. As for myself, I'm not going to review the show but will at least say that this episode shows improvement
from the last. Freefall is definitely the best looking gay web series out there, even though they strip all of the perceptible contrast out of the images (which I'm sure is intentional). I'm still confused with the randomness of the story and yet to really feel like I "know" any of the characters (or even like any of them for that matter). But I do see the potential and really appreciate the attempt at something different and straying away from cliches, which is more than we've seen from other black gay web series creators. So let me get the Open Discussion started with a few questions.
Freefall and Steel River
(sigh) are the only black shows created for the web that are at least trying to tell stories from the POV masculine black gay men. For that reason, do they face increased expectations from people like us at Discreet City given their budget or resources? Does budget even matter when critiquing art or creative works? In what ways does Freefall stand out from the rest? If something like Freefall was on Network Television (with a larger budget) would black gay men actually support it or would it die in the crib like The LA Complex? Watch the Episode and Debate Away!
Question of the Week: How Many Does It Take?
Discreet City I Octavius Williams
How many individuals need to know that you are gay before you are considered out? 10, 20, 50?
Who are the people that need to know; friends, family, co-workers, or casual acquaintances?
Does everyone need to know your sexuality for you to be considered out, or just the heterosexuals?
Thanks Nick D for coming up with this question.
Feel free to share your thoughts.
Inspired by Jason Collins
, 25-year-old Virginia native, Kevin Grayson
, spoke to a local CBS news affiliate WTVR yesterday to announce to the world that he’s gay. What makes this a big deal is Grayson is not only an average masculine Black man, he’s also a professional athlete and local legend in community. As a football wide receiver, Kevin won championships in High School, College and in the Pros. “People didn’t believe it because I was an athlete,”
Grayson said in the interview. “They’re like ‘Kevin plays football, he plays basketball, he runs track - no way, you know?”
Recognizing that he’s going against the stereotypes, 205 lbs 6’ 3” tall Grayson went on to say, “Those are the types of things where if I could go back and say; ‘Why can’t I be an athlete? Why can’t I be a star player? Why can’t I be the guy making plays that help my team win, and still on the flip side, be a gay male?’”
The 20 Most Famous Out Gay Men of Color (According to Twitter)
Discreet City | Nicholas Delmacy
In the Black gay community, so much emphasis is placed on sex, six-pack-abs and the club scene there is a perception that the biggest gay celebrities are all porn stars and tumblr models. It wasn't until Jason Collins made his big announcement that I really started to think about who our celebrities really were. Its really difficult to gauge popularity nowadays when actors in reality shows are considered "stars." Regardless, I turned to the biggest high school environment on the planet, Twitter, to determine which openly gay male personalities of color were in fact the most popular. As it turns
out, just like a high school, we have a wide range of gay men of color who fall into standard archetypes. We have big ol' nerds, masculine jocks, feminine boys, quiet types,
class clowns, singers, actors, models and yes, six-pack-abs. So check out who made the cut as our most famous Out gay celebs. Some names will surprise you, some you will want to immediately start following.
