Why do I write about gay guys?

I've been asked many times why I write about gay guys while I'm a bisexual woman in a relationship with another woman. My preference about writing about guys seems weird both to guys and girls and, honestly, I found very difficult to understand why until I tried to get exactly what I like about gay male … Continue reading Why do I write about gay guys?

Changing minds

  A couple of years ago, a cousin of mine said: “I have a lot of gay friends. You know, they are very nice once they’ve accepted you in their circle, they take you to parties and they are so sensitive. But family? Well, that's out of discussion. I mean, how could they think they'd … Continue reading Changing minds

What’s right

Today, during my Constitutional Rights class, we talked about the “new generation rights” or, in other words, the rights that aren't written in the Italian Constitution, but have become fundamental for our jurisdictional system. We also talked about marriage and adoption rights for gay couples. In case you didn't know it, the Italian Parliament is … Continue reading What’s right

Happy to be unhappy

The other day I tried to talk to a lesbian about How to get away with murder: huge mistake. I: I love Connor and Oliver: they are the best couple on the show. L: But they are gay. I: So? L: (incredulous) So they are gay, and they are in an established relationship, while the … Continue reading Happy to be unhappy

Why would a bi girl choose to be with a woman

“Look, if you’re bisexual that means that you’re both into men and women, right? So that means that you’re choosing to be with a woman. That’s stupid. Why are you trying to complicate your own life?”. Let’s all together count the number of bullshit statements that a single person is able to utter in one simple … Continue reading Why would a bi girl choose to be with a woman

G&T: watch it!

G&T is an Italian webseries and, before you ask, no, it doesn’t talk about how awful it is to be gay in Italy, it’s not a docu-fiction about the state of the works in Rimini and it’s not a soup of stereotypes and ostrich feathers either. G&T talks about feelings (not only, but especially), and … Continue reading G&T: watch it!

Hit the floor: #Zude

This week I'm gonna talk to you about Zude… I mean, Hit the Floor, with the only purpose of convincing you to watch it. Hit the Floor is a show, running every Monday on VH1, that focuses on the loves, lives and dramas (mostly dramas) of the cheerleaders and players of an imaginary basketball team, the … Continue reading Hit the floor: #Zude

Hotter than abs

The other night LB and I watched Freeheld. Since the movie has received bad reviews, I didn't have high expectations and, in the end, I liked it. Anyway, I could feel that something was missing, but the problem wasn't the absence of lesbian making out scenes or the script. I realized that the problem was … Continue reading Hotter than abs

Cheating is wrong. Or is it?

My friend - let's call her Mary - has grown up in a very religious family, the kind of family that goes to church every Sunday, wears a crucifix necklace and doesn't eat meat on Friday. Ever since high school she has been pretty masculine - skirt hater, cool short hair icon, sport champion - … Continue reading Cheating is wrong. Or is it?
