    “Kitsch Heart” by Benjamin Gallagher   The human heart pulls destiny out of God’s back pocket. It falls back to Earth to find a quiet corner in South Florida.

  • Boy Friends

    “Boy Friends” @anthonyemancuso and I met in an art room over eight years ago. We lived together on and off for seven of those years. He’s straight and I’m gay.

  • “Orlandough Boy”

    Hi friends, I took a short break from SM to work on my mental health. Insomnia and anxiety kept me depressed the past couple of months.

  • Kitsch Pride

    I slipped out of the Brownstone and down 7th Street. Rainbow balloons floated along 7th Avenue. My cheeks hurt from smiling. The LGBTQ community cheered louder than my high school during a pep rally. Except, I joined in the sound with a kind of sincerity known as Pride. “I’m gay,” I said and ran back […]

    Proper & Wild – Food Review

Food became an equation that solved a mystery about determination. I could achieve any goal with the right tools and mindset. Now, food represents both the problem and the solution of […]
