Farm & Fable to open in South End

Farm and FableFarm & Fable, a vintage cookbook kitchen shop that has space to host cooking demonstrations and classes, will open a new retail space on the corner of Shawmut Avenue and Milford Street across from Coppa Boston in the South End.

I’m relieved to see this space will be home to a new retail shop.  With Formaggio and the Syrian Market just across the street and a number of cafes, restaurants and other retailers on this block I hope there will be sufficient foot traffic for this specialty shop.

Men of Twitter

Since the fall of 2010 each Monday I have posted profiles of men (mostly gay – but not always) who have caught my attention and I’ve enjoyed following on Twitter. I’ve called this weekly post the “Men of Twitter”.

While I remain active on Twitter, I’m finding it difficult to find guys who are available and open to being featured and have recently reverted to featuring prominent profiles of celebrities, activists and politicians, which was never the real intent of this weekly post.

I’m temporarily suspending this post, but I’d love to hear from you and welcome suggestions of men on Twitter you’d like to see featured.

Boston GuyEach Monday I blog about profiles of men on Twitter who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following. This week I’m away in Provincetown so the weekly post is taking a temporary hiatus.  Enjoy some photos of past Men Of Twitter, and feel free to send me recommendations for future posts.

Men of Twitter

BosGuyEach Monday I post #MenOfTwitter profiles of men who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following.  This month I’m featuring Twitter profiles of men who are lending their voice and influence to fight for greater equality. Earlier this month I included names of actors and political activists.  This week I’m featuring two athletes who have raised awareness about homophobia.

Brian Sims for PennsylvaniaSims4PA – Brian Sims is originally from D.C. and this former college athlete has a unique distinction of being the only openly gay football captain in NCAA history.  After graduating he went on to get his J.D. and then serve as the President of Equality PA, and as the Chairman of the Gay and Lesbian Lawyers of Philadelphia (GALLOP), until he stepped down from both positions in 2011.  He is now running for the PA House of Representatives.

Matt MitchamMatthew_Mitcham – Matthew is an  Australian diver who many first became aware of when he won 10M diving event at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.  Matthew was also one of the few openly gay athletes competing in the 2008 Summer Olympics. You will be able to see more of Matthew in a few weeks when he competes for Australia at the London Summer Olympic Games.

BosGuyEach Monday I post #MenOfTwitter profiles of men who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following.  This month I’m featuring Twitter profiles of men who are lending their voice and influence to fight for greater equality. Last week I included names of out and proud actors.  This week I’m featuring two handsome men who have built careers as political activists to foster change and greater equality.

SeanEldridge - Sean is a senior advisor for Freedom to Marry.  He initially started working with Freedom to Marry in 2010 as their Communications Director and then Political Director, a role in which he was instrumental in winning the freedom to marry to New York.  He’s handsome, articulate and a political activist helping the LGBT community; follow him on Twitter.

Aravosis – John Aravosis is a political consultant, writer, gay activist and blogger who lives in D.C. He is also the founder of AMERICAblog.  Although you may not recognize John by name – you will likely recognize some of his accomplishments, which include co-founding the site, StopDrLaura.com. Aravosis has also worked with leading US businesses to ensure they do not bow to pressure from conservative religious organizations. Also active on Twitter, John is worth following.

Each Monday I post #MenOfTwitter profiles of men who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following.  This month I’m featuring Twitter profiles of men who are lending their voice and influence to fight for greater equality.

Darryl Stephens actorDarrylStephens – Darryl’s role as the lead actor in Noah’s Arc a show that first aired back in 2005 was ground breaking in many ways since it revolved around gay black men.  Stephens came out in 2007 and although very private remains an excellent role model. In light of the recent guerrilla art campaign in Boston Would you still love me if I were gay, I thought it appropriate to feature Darryl.

Wcruz73 – Wilson Cruz also starred in Noah’s Arc.  He’s not only unbelievably attractive but he’s an out and proud actor. Although he’s from NYC, Wilson now lives in Southern California and is working on a number of projects but best of all for those on Twitter – Wilson is active on Tweeter and very friendly.

Each Monday I post “Men of Twitter” profiles. These are men who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following.

It is Pride Week in Boston and the start of “Pride Month” when many LGBT communities come together to celebrate so each week this month I’ll feature Twitter profiles of gay men who are lending their voice and influence to fight for greater equality. Here are two men you may recognize and wish to follow.

Gay RugbyGarethThomas14 – Last week I posted a rather revealing photo of Gareth from the cover of Attitude Magazine’s “Naked” issue, which resulted in a lot of emails indicating people would like to see more of him. Gareth is an out, retired Welsh rugby player and regularly posts pictures of himself. I’m assuming many of you will appreciate following him.

CarlSciortino – Carl was elected to the Massachusetts State House in 2005 after a tough primary where he defeated the Democratic incumbent who was opposed to Same Sex Marriage.  His closely watched  primary showed others that supporting marriage equality would not necessarily count against you in Massachusetts. Carl is easy to chat with and active on Twitter so wish him a Happy Pride this week.
