A little throwback to when we were first trying to figure out what kind of story-telling we wanted to focus on as a publication that aims to explore sexuality. Ryan, Sydney, and I spent a Sunday at our favorite bar, Radio Bar, and had a few beers and just talked. That simple. Join the conversation as we talk about growing up in a religious household and dealing with coming to terms with your sexual orientation, the struggles of masculinity vs. femininity, as well as our opinions on polyamory & monogamy in queer couples.
