New dating website Yamvoo doesn't shy away from hookup culture. It's upfront in its intentions, and maybe, just maybe, the rest of us should start to change how we talk about it as well.

I was recently invited to speak about Frank Ocean’s catalog and legacy on a podcast produced by Swedish national radio. It was amazing to geek out about one of my favorite artists for an hour. I can’t wait to hear the final episode. I published a glowing review of Blonde in 2016. Revisit that piece:

SIVEL + SHARP is a black-owned, veteran-owned men’s clothing and accessory brand that recently launched its signature shirt stays. For those who aren’t super familiar, shirt stays are elastic bands that connect your shirt to your socks for the ultimate tuck. I had the pleasure of speaking with founder Gerald Triplett about his newest product and the inspiration behind his business.

When I initially shared this piece in 2016, the reception was…tepid at best. But since then, the magazine industry has continued to face struggle after struggle. Case in point, Condé Nast (home to Vogue and The New Yorker), is selling W, Brides, and Golf Digest to minimize its losses. Interview shuttered in May after 50 years. And surely, local and regional titles are facing similar struggles. As tech continues to revolutionize the way we consume content, the magazine industry must adapt to change or continue to face hardships.

Arkansas has pleasantly surprised me as a place full of life, culture, acceptance, and clean Wal-Marts. These are just a few stream of consciousness thoughts after two months in the Natural State:

Though Pride Month is a chance for us to celebrate how far we’ve come, let us never forget how far we have to go. The last month of developments regarding LGBTQ rights is a prime example of why. My latest for SOULE: https://www.soule.lgbt/the-last-30-days-havent-been-kind-to-lgbtq-rights/
