Queer Kid of Color

The truth of the matter is Rod, GENRE isn't good in diversity. I commend Instinct.

Rod, this is great. I'm pleasantly surprised to see a brotha on the cover. It's also nice that they are profiling a 'real' person from the community. Not that hot models aren't real but you know what I mean.

Rod, Thanks for the snippets on the article, its good to see that some of the white gay editorial boards are now putting black men on the covers, I might buy one or even subscribe if they continue to show that not everyone is blond, muscular and white.

And, this young man has it going on, great to see a positive black man on the pages as well, instead of those for HIV med's.

I agree, however is it me or is there still a slight double standard? When they have a lighter colored person on the cover, aren't they half naked, smiling and glowing in grand gay fashion? They put a brother on and he's frowning and dressed head to toe?

maybe I'm just being picky here. I do think credit is due, considering most gay mags act like gay minorities don't exist.

Yes, we'll buy the magazines if they put brothers on the cover. But the question is, will white gays by-pass the magazine if a black person is on the cover? I understand this is what happens with mainstream magazines.

"When they have a lighter colored person on the cover, aren't they half naked, smiling and glowing in grand gay fashion? "

But we could also argue that if they did have a man of color half naked, they were objectifying him...

I agree......thank you for putting this out on the table to talk about.
