Buzzfeed interviews Jay Franzone, a gay Lasell student who has given up sex partly to comply with an FDA rule that says gay men can donate blood after a sexless year, but more to show the problems with that rule.
By jumping through the federal government’s hoops - a year without sex - he hopes to demonstrate that the policy is not just unworkable but discriminatory.
Associated Press reports.
Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll has terminated Gordon College's contract to manage the city-owned Old Town Hall over its efforts to continue sucking at the federal teat even if the president signs an executive order banning discrimination against gays and lesbians. In a letter to the college president, Driscoll writes:
Boston, Mass. – March 17, 2014 – SpeakOUT, the nation’s oldest gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex and allies (GLBTQI) speakers bureau, will hold its bi-annual speaker training on Saturday and Sunday, April 26 and 27, at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA.
“Our motto is ‘Ask Us Anything,’” said SpeakOUT member Julie Dorley. “We tell our stories, speaking from our own experiences and answer audience questions honestly and openly. Our approach helps put audiences at ease and builds greater understanding about GLBTQI lives and issues.”
BosGuy sends his farewells to Fritz on Chandler Street, closing at the end of the year to make way for another South End type bistro.
Fritz is my favorite place in Boston to watch a game and even though I’m always a fan of seeing new restaurant open, I’m torn and left with a bitter taste by its closure. I’ll miss Fritz.

GLADHours are hosted 3 times a year in conjunction with the Mass LGBTQ Bar Association. Join us this time to learn more about GLAD's transgender advocacy from Jennifer L. Levi, director of GLAD's Transgender Rights Project and one of our nation's leading experts on transgender legal issues.
Transgender people face the most basic and blatant discrimination every day - from being denied access to employment, housing, or healthcare, to being physically attacked because of the way they look or dress. Through the Transgender Rights Project, GLAD puts our litigation, legislative, and educational assets to work in a focused way to establish clear legal protections for the transgender community. Join us to learn more!

This gay friendly restaurant bar serves eclectic, to-die-for food, but the mellow and welcoming ambiance set by color-changing lights, music, and nouveau decor makes for an all around great evening. The only peeve is the lack of a maitre d' -- you’ll have to seat yourself -- and the oh-so-few male waiters.
It was the only Boston bar to make the cut.
