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.

Men of Twitter

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.

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.

Men of Twitter

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.

BosGuyEach Monday I post #MenOfTwitter profiles of men who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following.  If so inclined, leave these guys a nice comment and start following them.

Men of TwitterAaronH89 – Aaron is a Boston native who is a second year law student so he’s got looks and brains (a potent combo). If he looks like a jock its because he played baseball until relatively recently when he injured his knee – dashing his dreams of a career in MLB. This handsome 20-something is as easy to chat with as he is on the eyes so start following and say hello to this shy Bostonian.

Men of TwitterHelloBlaine – Blaine is from Houston, Texas. This handsome techie is even more of a Twitter addict than me.  If you follow Blaine you’ll quickly learn that he loves men’s fashion and is interested in all things pertaining to health and fitness. Don’t be shy, Blaine is extremely friendly and easy to connect with on Twitter.

Check out past Men of Twitter postings.

Each Monday I post #MenOfTwitter profiles of men who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following.  This week there is a definite Boston theme.  If so inclined, leave these guys a nice comment and start following.  If you’d like to follow me on twitter, you can find me @BosGuy. Below are this week’s #MenOfTwitter.

Boston BalletJamesBruceWhite – A.K.A. James Whiteside, is a native of Connecticut but lucky for us here, he’s been dancing in Boston since 2002.  He became a Principal Dancer with the Boston Ballet back in 2009 and happens to live in Boston’s South End (my hood).  I’ve never seen James in person but its not for lack of looking around.  Who knows perhaps our paths will cross, but til then one can still watch James perform and of course, follow him on Twitter.

RichardDustin – Dustin is the communications guru at a non-profit I once upon a time worked at, The AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts.  Dustin is a Georgia native who found his way up here to Boston and is now fully focused on Tweeting about the upcoming AIDS Walk Boston.  Have questions about how you can get involved or participate in this year’s AIDS walk? Follow this personable and handsome 20-something.

Men of Twitter

BosGuyEach Monday I feature men on Twitter who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following. I refer to these posts as Men of Twitter. This week I’m spanning the Globe as I feature two incredibly attractive men from the opposite sides of the world. I hope you’ll check them out and if on Twitter consider following.

BosGuyDanielGarofali – I first saw and chatted with Daniel when he was dancing at the clubs in Sydney in 2009.  I also taped some of the performances where he was a back up dancer at the 2009 Drag! Camp as Christmas, which you can see here, here, and here. This Australian swimsuit model has gone on to bigger things since then including a very sexy calendar.  In addition to following him on Twitter you can check out his self named website, danielgarofali.com.

BosGuyAdrianHansel – Clear across the world in the United Kingdom is this handsome and talented entertainer.  Adrian is originally from Windsor but has lived in London since he was 16 years old.  Adrian just finished an arena show where he performed as a guest singer on the Michael Ball tour and is currently working on various musical workshops.  You can keep up to date with the latest from Adrian by following him on Twitter or checking out his new website, www.adrianhansel.com.

BosGuyEach Monday I feature men on Twitter who catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following. I refer to these posts as Men of Twitter.

Regular readers will notice that this week I have updated the Men of Twitter masthead. So this week I’m taking a hiatus from featuring new profiles and focusing on these four men in case you missed them before.

BosGuyFLHotty1 A little more than a year ago I featured Will who lives in Florida.  We actually ended up meeting last year in Provincetown, and I have to tell you he’s as handsome in person as he is in pictures but what you can’t tell from the picture is that he’s an absolute sweetheart too.

BosGuyTheNickAdams This handsome Broadway star, Nick Adams, was featured earlier this year in January. Considering the hectic nature of Nick’s schedule, I was really surprised how engaging he was on Twitter. Here’s to hoping for continued success for Nick Adams.

BosGuyJonathanAB was featured in 2011. This handsome guy with the killer abs is from Cape Town but now lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. I’ve always wanted to visit South Africa and following Jonathan makes me feel like I get a glimpse into life there.

BosGuyBertomio (A.K.A. Rob) was the first Men of Twitter profile I featured in 2012. I think readers will agree Rob has a killer smile and fantastic body. It turns out this Philly boy who now calls NYC home is also quite sweet and nice to chat with on Twitter.

I hope you like the new masthead and the men I’ve featured.  Be sure to come back again next Monday when my more traditional Men of Twitter posts will resume. If inclined you may follow me on twitter, @BosGuy.

If so inclined, leave these guys a nice comment and start following.

Men of TwitterBenjaminGodfre – What can I say about Benjamin that he hasn’t already said about himself?  If you like what you see here, check his  provocative blog www.benjamingodfre.com. Although he includes video on his blog you can also follow him on YouTube or facebook.  I enjoy following him on Twitter since his Tweets provide a constant update in real-time with links.  Benjamin’s fans are called Benjaminions and he interacts with them via his blog, facebook and Twitter.  More photos of Benjamin will be posted on his blog shortly since he spent this past weekend with celebrity and fashion photographer David Vance in Miami.

Men of Twitterbuckhollywood – Entertainment “news” programs that act as if their reporting is actually important and newsworthy drives me bonkers. I prefer my pop culture news to be served with a side of sarcasm and humor and for that reason I’m a fan of Michael Buckley and his hilarious What The Buck show on YouTube. Michael’s enthusiastic show is gayer than a pink toy poodle and for that reason incredibly entertaining.  With over 50,000 Tweets, Michael’s addiction to Twitter is well documented so if you follow him – say hello. He’s quite friendly.

sles78 – Simon is the second man in as many weeks from the U.K. who I’ve featured in my Men of Twitter postings. Could this be the start of a trend? Anyway, I digress. This handsome 30-something splits his down time between Manchester and Telford, but he travels all over England for work.  Simon is very easy to chat with on Twitter and seems quite friendly so be sure to say hello to him in one of your next Tweets.

Parakoos – Otherwise known as Gustav Andersson is originally from Sweeden but now he calls the world his home as lives the life of a modern nomad.  He maintains an intriguing blog that documents his travels (in case you’re wondering he’s currently in Buenos Aires).  Perhaps Gustav will be visiting your home some time soon.  Follow him on Twitter and read about his travels on his blog, The Modern Nomad.

This week has a European theme with two handsome men that are friends and currently residing in Germany.

Felix_Barca – Felix is originally from Barcelona Spain but currently lives in  Cologne Germany where he works as an assistant for an international company. However that is simply a job that pays the bills, there is more than meets the eye with this Spaniard (both literally and figuratively), who dabbles in the gay adult industry. Felix is very friendly on Twitter so be sure to check him out and say hello.

 PhillipAntony1 – This handsome Englishman currently lives in Germany, but will likely move back to London this summer.  Phillip was born to entertain and he’s done plenty of that as a dancer on a cruise ship as well as a performer in a number of recognizable musicals including: Chicago, Mamma Mia and most recently Dirty Dancing.  If you’re a Londoner, look for this handsome young man come July.

For the past month I’ve been featuring couples who are both on Twitter, but this week ends that trend.  The two men featured this week are both in a relationship but not with each other.

GingrSteve – For all those ginger fans out there, this has been a long time coming, but I think you’ll agree Steve is both handsome and worth the follow. This Canadian calls Calgary his home. He lives there with his partner and a puppy named Tucker.  Steve is focused on getting his personal trainer certification and working on his personal fitness; something I can appreciate and admire.  Steve is quite conversational on Twitter so if you follow – don’t be shy and say hello to him.

Justex07 – A.K.A. Justin Scott is originally from Texas but now calls San Francisco home and lives with his boyfriend.  Justin’s job has him travelling so much that he created a blog called itsjustjustin.com.  When this young entrepreneur is not between airport lounges, he is working on his photography which is also featured on the blog mentioned. You’ll enjoy following this Twitter addict and get to live vicariously through him as he tweets about work, wine and life.
