Fenway Health Men’s Event is March 11

Fenway Health Men's EventIn 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. 

Gay and bisexual men spend a lot of time on Grindr

gay dating apps, gay hook up apps, gay datingWhile 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.

Have an abstastic Tuesday

abstasticI’m busy juggling two roles as I transition positions at my company so I’ve not been able to spend the amount of time I need to write all the posts I normally do each week. I didn’t think anyone would mind me inserting this photograph as a “filler” post in the interim.

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you like what you see, share on your social networks. I don’t accept any advertising and word of mouth is the only way people find out about BosGuy.com.
