Name: Ben Stoviak Age: 29 County of Residence: Allegheny Preferred Pronouns: He/They How do you describe your identity? Queer, gay, male-bodied; I like to think of myself as a lover above these things, though, and like to remind people that I’m many more things than this—I’m a teacher, professional, creative, son, brother, adventurer, and friend.

I was poking around tonight and found this series of posts on The Slog website. I love that people can win dinner with Dan Savage for donating to a hunger relief organization. I would donate and I work for a hunger relief organization. I love that they picked up on the article in Slate about […]
I have to give credit to Leslie Fleisher for busting out this bucket of Santorum when the latest news on Chick-Fil-A hit social media. Go Facebook … I think the fan page will be up soon. It could be a thing. She specifically references to tribadism. Yes, if you don’t know what that is … you […]
