Back Out With Benny: Mixing the holidays with community

Sometimes the number of events taking place within our community gets tiring — even for the most seasoned of socialites — but I remind myself how fortunate I am to live in a place and be part of a community (since I was 16 years old, nearly 20 years now) that offers me such a wide variety of options to mix, connect, meet new people, and to raise funds and support for great causes.

Guys, Games & Grub is Wednesday night at The Center

Host Benny Cartwright and the team at The Center welcome all men (and friends) 21 years and older to the event, which is a great place for guys to connect, meet and socialize.

Back Out With Benny: #TalkingSex

As a gay man, I’ve spent much of my life hearing people tell me how I should have sex (or why the sex I had is wrong, or why having too much sex made me a “slut”).

#AIDSWalkSD update: Jarrod & The Detour Salon Team
