California Bans Travel to 4 States With Anti-LGBT Laws

It may be hard to believe, but “All-American Boy,” the sexy, country-tinged music video that made Steve Grand a viral sensation, is now three years old.

When it was released in 2013, “All-American Boy” was, by all accounts, daring, starring Grand as a young man traversing winding roads and mountain lakes while pining for a heterosexual male friend and showing off his chiseled physique. Critical reaction to the clip itself was mixed, with Slate calling it “something out of a homo smut story from before Stonewall.” Among Grand’s fans, however, the song’s success was seen as a cultural affirmation of the LGBT community well before marriage equality was the law of the land.

“All of the best and the worst things in my life have happened since the release of that video,” Grand, 26, told GayTkies.com. “It’s been really challenging to grow up and let certain things go and learn things about myself in the public eye. It’s been quite a wild ride.”

The Illinois-born singer-songwriter, who released his first full-length album last year, said that newfound “love and understanding” of himself inspired him to sign on as a spokesman for AT&T’s 2016 “Live Proud” campaign. Now in its fourth year, the effort, which is focused on LGBT awareness and empowerment, asks supporters to share photos of themselves on social media with the hashtag #ATTLiveProud to be featured in a special “digital mosaic.”

Also included in the campaign is a fundraising effort for victims of the June 12 mass shooting in Orlando, Florida that targeted the LGBT community. Grand, who was preparing for a performance in Detroit at the time of the shooting, said the tragedy was a sobering reminder that the U.S. is “not always a safe place to be queer.”

“As much as I feel that we’ve made a lot of progress – and we certainly have – there are still parts of this country, and around the world, that really fear LGBT people,” he said. “I don’t think it’s a warranted fear; it’s a fear that comes from prejudice and learned biases.”

His involvement in the AT&T campaign, he said, is essentially “buckling down with what I’ve already been doing and what I’ve been encouraging people to do all along: live out and be proud of who you are.”

To be fair, Grand’s relationship with the LGBT community has been polarizing at times. In March, he had to backpedal when, in an attempt to address his critics, he offered a series of remarks that many perceived as an overt expression of white male privilege in an interview.

Grand, who apologized in the wake of the backlash, now acknowledges that his comments “sounded unfortunate.” “I like to banter with people, and good banter doesn’t always make for a good interview,” he explained. “What I said, and how it came across in print, didn’t really capture what I was trying to say. I wasn’t happy with how that turned out. I wasn’t necessarily proud of those words.”

The vitriol hasn’t stopped Grand from being particularly cheeky (in some cases, literally) on his Instagram. After he posted a snapshot of himself wearing nothing but a Speedo, fans superimposed the image onto a variety of humorous backgrounds – on the moon, with a free-falling Madonna and alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in “Brokeback Mountain.” Grand re-shared the images, he said, because “we can all afford to laugh at ourselves sometimes.”

Currently at work on a new album, Grand said fans can expect his sophomore effort to reflect both his “subtle sense of sarcasm” as well as his personal growth as a performer. “These last three years, I’ve really found out a lot about myself,” he said. “I think that there’s a great power to being unapologetically who we are.” (1/8)

Special Features of GayTies

All About Our Chat Rooms
Of course, ANY member can go into the chat rooms at ANY time; it's a free gay chat room service. You do not have to be a premium member to use it. All you do is go into chat by clicking on the “Chat” link in the green header. As soon as you click to enter the chat room, that link changes to a red flashing “Chatting Now.” This is so everyone will know you are in there and they can enter also, if they wish. The book icon you see at the bottom of the chat window explains the simple features about chatting.

There are three popular ways to start a chat:

1. The first is spontaneous. Whenever you see the flashing “Chatting Now,” go in there.

2. Another good way is to arrange it. If you want to chat with someone you see on line, message them to meet you in chat, either right then, or a set a pre-arranged time later. You can also message someone who is not on line, and set a pre-arranged time to meet in chat. Some members will use our personal Ads to meet guys for chat.

3. The other way is to start an international group chat. Here is how to do that.

Here are the 3 steps to start an online chat group session:

First click on “Last 100 logins” green link on the home page and scroll through the profiles to see who is currently online.

Second, type out (or copy and paste) a short invite such as: “I am creating a group chat session in 5 minutes, please click on 'Chat Rooms' and meet us there.”

Third, send this message to ALL those gay chat lovers currently “on line” who selected “Cyber / chat buddies” as one of their interests.” Usually you see about a couple dozen members who are currently on line, AND interested in chat. Use the "Send message" link under each member's photo and simply paste that message invite, and send it.

Do this sort of quickly so everyone gets the invite within a few minutes or so. In group chats, do not get selective. Message everyone you see online.

And …. that’s it. You are done. Chat with any of them, or let them chat with each other. It may be helpful for you to explain some features of chat, while you are in chat.

We suggest that before you send out your group invites, go into the chat room first and click on everything. Get a little bit familiar with the rooms, how to have private “whisper” chats, and especially click on the book icon, which contains very simple chat instructions.

It is not critical, but the rooms are for different subjects of chat. People can chat in the Lobby, or go into a subject room to be with those of similar interest. The Kinky Basement is for guys into kink talk as well as beating off, the Boner Room is for all kinds of jo scenes, and the Friendship Lounge is for guys seeking a non-sexual chat with cyber friends. And, you may see other rooms which members have created, because you can create your own room, for your own purpose.

What to chat about? Well, of course, all your erotic personal stuff. But also about gay clips on Gayties. Gay videos are a hot social network topic here, as well as kink and romance. We ask everyone to be courteous and patient as we all get to learn more about how chat works. Finally, we suggest one other thing, … be adventurous and have fun.
