London Screenings Of Patrik Ian Polk's 'The Skinny' Sold Out


Patrik Ian Polk and the cast of his new movie 'The Skinny' have cause for celebration. The 1st International outing for the movie, the BFI London Gay and Lesbian Film festival has had its March 31st and April 1st screenings completely sell out. Here's hoping that this achievement opens up UK based TV network and Film and distribution opportunities for Polk. I can see the likes of Channel 4 and Film4 being UK networks that would potentially have a strong interest in Polk's work. Congrats!

Inspiring Stuff: Howard University Students Talk Trayvon



Trayvon Martin. A name that regardless of where you are in the World, conjures up emotions of anger at the injustice surrounding a teen of colour whose life was stolen at the hands of a man who is roaming free as I type.

My 2 Pence -Lowering Your Conservative



Discreet guys. Do you remember once upon a time you had a hyper-sensitive zero tolerance policy that you applied to online / chat line dating. The list included ending communication if:


  • His voice sounded too high (Probably overly feminine)
  • He's been to a gay club (Too out there and his face is known)
  • He'd been in a relationship (Too needy)
  • He didn't relate to being discreet (DL but female free)
  • His pictures / personality had a hint of something that kicked up an awkward feeling in your spirit (Ugly)
  • He was too eager (Been around)
  • He was too paranoid (Set up / anger management issues)

These days I find myself lowering my conservative because filtering out most of the above leaves you attracting the wild ones with issues baggage and in it for kicks and I just feel that to be built for that  it takes a lot out of you and I ain't about that life any more. I guess the more you experience in this life, the more you can use what you've actually been through instead of ruling someone out based on projected assumptions with no weight. Plus doing so does not take away from you being a man, more just calling time on the usual BS.

Fellas, I wonder what your conservative is like? Maybe you are a proud liberal. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

My 2 Pence: Inner Demons



This path of dealing with guys hasn't been smooth sailing nor has it without dealing with inner demons.

The first demon I had to deal with was the fact that I would get days where I would wake up and try to stage a self intervention. Growing I had been brought up to believe dating guys was the worst possible thing you could do, so why was I regularly putting myself in situations where I was damning myself to hell? I'd then recount my experiences to date and feel sick with guilt. Guilt would then lead me to throw the sim card with all the numbers of acquaintances and people that I'd got it in with in the trash and just to focus on college and females, but the absence of the emotions that go along with pursuing a cool guy had my brain yearning to be in a similar situation again so I threw caution out the window and went back to basics, telling myself that it would the last time I would ever try to deprive myself of actions that feel organic to me.

The second demon I had to deal with was the social politics and leaving the old ways behind. I grew up in the projects and growing up around   some of the poorest people in the UK, you've got to develop street smarts. People robbing like it was nothing, friends turning snakes when you possess intelligence or access to opportunities that they don't have, and the ingrained need to belong. I remember when I was 14 - 15 rolling with heartless people with no morals. Shit like 'TJ I fucked your mum last night until her pussy bled" and throwing firecrackers in class was what was considered funny. No identity and pressured into situations that my heart wasn't in. Hanging on the block in a clique because it felt good to be a part of something. I remember one of the boys I used to roll with nearly got stabbed in the heart with a kitchen knife because some guy thought he was the one throwing stones at a balcony where his baby mother was standing with his newborn in her arms.

I knew I was attracted to guys at this point but I didn't act on it. The turning point came at 16 when I got a summer job while waiting for my GSCE results. This meant for the first time I was around a range of mindsets and given a pay check with responsibilities attached which meant my character evolved as a result. It also gave me a window of opportunity to get to know guys away from the paranoia I felt when around the people I grew up with and keep those experiences sacred. I then replaced those I grew up with who were piss poor morally with people that inspired growth in my character. I also made some close knit friendships with guys dealing with the same struggle; guys who became part of my social fabric without raising eyebrows.

Even though I've come along way, there are still struggles. Now in my 20s, I've loved, lost, lusted and been lusted after. But thinking back, I wouldn't have life any other way.
