Through an odd twist of fate, cosmic alignment, gay voodoo or whatever you want to call it, I've reacquainted myself with my old (hmm...well maybe old is a poor word to use) friend, Mike. I'm a snarky and sarcastic bitch at times, but that's part of my charm so I've been told. Recently transplanted to San Francisco where I'm trying to reinvent myself. Recently out of a 9 year relationship so pardon my jadedness when it comes to cutesy shit like couples. I'm kind of a gaymer-nerd so if you can down, down-foward, foward, high punch and land it against me, chances are we're going to get along.

Picture it: Fresno. Summer 2001.

There I was: A fledgling gay making my way through the dance floor of the local it-bar, BamBams. The tribal beats of Pepper Mashay’s “Dive in to the Pool” begin to pound through the speakers…

A Closed World will open your eyes…

Very seldom do queer characters appear in video games without them being portrayed as over the top flamboyant (see: Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony). However, recently I had the opportunity to play a game that had a queer-theme that wasn’t completely ridiculous or stereotypical. The game is called A Closed World in which you choose the role of a male or female youth who is trying to find acceptance among his or her family for the choices he or she has made regarding who he or she has come to fall in love with. The character’s design is androgynous enough to be either male or female and wanders a dark forest battling personifications of his/her families’ opinions toward the player.
