Ithaca Commons, Ithaca NY
Enjoy culture, diversity, and spectacular views in ITHACA, NY!
As a child, I can recall camping trips to Ithaca, visiting Buttermilk Falls and Robert H. Treman State Park. Riding bikes and swimming during the day, then eating smores while laying flat on the picnic table staring at the blanket of starts glistening in the clear night sky. It wasn’t until much later in life when I was able to appreciate the fascinating culture and delectable diversity offered in a community as gorgeous as Ithaca.
It is no surprise to me that Ithaca made the list as “Most Liberal Places in America” by www.epodunk.com, or that The Utne Reader named the city “America’s most enlightened Town.” Home to the prestigious Ivy League Cornell University, it would not be unusual to see a local walking through the infamous Ithaca Commons with dreadlocks, a backpack and no shoes in this college town.

Is Jonathan Crutchley the Hugh Hefner of the "gay world?"
In its tenth year, Manhunt remains the leading gay website in the United States. What began as a Boston-based telephone dating service is now a worldwide mobile powerhouse with more than five million members.
As chairman of Manhunt, co-founder Jonathan Crutchley is the man behind the blue and orange curtain. We sat with him to discuss how he and business partner Larry Basile first came up with the idea for an online gay dating site; and how in ten years, Manhunt has changed the way gay men meet other gay men.

Exclusive Interview with Scott Herman
By: Sam Washington
Before flexing his muscles on MTV’s reality show The Real World: Brooklyn, Scott Herman was just a regular American kid growing up in Salem, New Hampshire. He remembers always protecting the little kids in his neighborhood. However, it wasn’t until meeting Katelynn, his transgender roommate from the show, that Scott realized he needed to do more in the fight for gay rights. Today, Herman is using his celebrity muscle and Colgate smile to recruit straight allies to the gay cause.

Into The Wild Gay Yonder
Written by: Christopher de la Torre
Nathan Manske wanted to share the stories of queer rural America with the world. But amidst a flurry of messages from readers who had stumbled across his website, I'm From Driftwood, he secretly longed for a flesh and blood connection---the kind he couldn't get replying to emails from his bedroom in Brooklyn. That's when he got the idea to take the operation on the road. Nathan enlisted his trusty video story editor and friend Marquise, and his brother Nick offered to drive the van. The trio would roam the country from state to state and host readings where they would share stories from that region and have discussions with the locals about their experiences.
