When you feel like letting go… #HoldTight.
A new advertisement campaign from Australian bank ANZ is urging LGBT couples to hold hands during difficult times with its #HoldTight campaign.
Ever since the U.S. Presidential election in November hate crimes have risen. According to The Southern Poverty Law Center an astounding 867 cases of hateful harassment or intimidation in the United States were reported in the 10 days following the November 8 election. While many of these cases are directed at minorities and foreigners, the LGBT community has been targeted as well, making ANZ’s message relevant here in the U.S. Be safe and #HoldTight.
I would kill Sergio if he took a selfie when I was waking up, but I’m totally okay with guys who want to send me their selfies for future Scruffy Sunday posts. 🙂

In two weeks Fenway Health will host one of the largest LGBT fundraisers in New England. The Men’s Event, which takes place on Saturday, March 11th will draw more than 1,300 supporters to raise funds for one of the nation’s largest LGBT clinics and to bring our community together to celebrate our accomplishments. Unlike recent years, a chilling shift in political currents has taken place in the United States and after having a friend in the White House for the past eight years, the LGBT community finds itself facing a President who says he’s a friend but who’s actions indicate something very different.
It is important for our community to come together and support each other which is one reason Sergio and I will be attending this year’s program. Tickets remain available for the 2016 Men’s Event on Saturday, March 19. To learn more about the event or to purchase tickets visit, mensevent.org.
To give you a taste, here is a video of Fenway Men’s event from a few years ago.
Damn, this guy’s body is beyond ridiculous.

Enjoy the weekend and thanks for stopping by to check out my blog.
While there is no shortage of dating apps on the market, a new study from New York City-based research firm, 7Park Data finds that Grindr tops the list when it comes to user engagement with the average user spending 2.75 hours a week, far surpassing other dating apps like Badoo and Tinder. Read into this what you will, but it won’t come as a surprise to gay men familiar with the app.
Grindr first launched in 2009 and is widely credited (or complained about – it all depends on your perspective) for transforming the way millions of smartphone bisexual and gay men interact with each other. Grindr now has more than 5 million monthly active users.
