Gays In The Prison System

During a recent stay at the Philadelphia Prison System I saw, first hand, how the gay population in a correctional facility so large is treated.  A county jail in which inmates prey upon each other and the officers charged with keeping order are complacent...

Closeted: A Southern Epidemic

It was a warm, spring day in northern Mississippi when I asked my brother’s friend to humor me with an impromptu photo shoot. Despite his insecurities, he obliged, pulled off his shirt, and let me click away, never once saying anything inappropriate about his...
