Tuffy Luv Sez: One Little Lie Gets Big

When I first got together with my girlfriend, I told her I'd only slept with one other girl and one guy. When we first got together, I thought it would just be a short-term thing, because we're in college and that's what you do. Well it turns out she and I really love each other...

Is Being Gay A Choice? Actress Cynthia Nixon Says Yes

It's not easy being gay.

Dear Tuffy Luv, I have a dilemma. Currently I'm (only) 17 and a junior in high school, though I would like to think that I seem 'beyond my years.' At 5'11", it is not uncommon for adults to think I am older, which can be fun when I'm out on the town with my girls and older guys spark up convos...

Duke It Out: Gay Affirmative Action

When just a couple of decades ago many people couldn't RISK coming out in college, now schools are trying to recruit applicants from the LGBT community and while I have no qualms about that, I gotta wonder if it's fair.

Duke It Out: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Last week, the Senate voted not to repeal the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy - a policy that's essentially a band-aid for the absence of gay rights in the military. The policy, which was introduced in 1993, has essentially stood all of this time as a way of saying 'you can be gay in the military, as long as nobody knows about it'.
