Gay Career Spotlight: Escort
Although escorts are often scorned as being petty criminals or marginally intelligent meth queens with big dicks and bigger drug habits, there is actually a highly profitable class of prostitutes who get to be the glorious mistress of many rich people…one after the other. They have advanced degrees, brilliant conversation skills, and big dicks too. A top-notch escort in a major city can make...
Gay Career Spotlight: Drag Queen
Being a drag queen is a lovely job and certainly profitable if done correctly—just look at RuPaul. The rules required for succeeding at drag are so complex and specific that they require their own manual—one that covers makeup, hair, fashion, bitchiness, and the theatre of femininity. But the basics are as follows. Doing your makeup isn’t all that difficult. Just practice practice practice!...
Helping You Map Out Your Gay Agenda →
If you want a stylish tool to keep track of taking down marriage and recruiting children look no further! This adorable app even gives “today in gay” historical notes!
nuditynotprudity-deactivated201 asked: Just curious why you tag your posts with LGBT. Do you think that anyone who labels themselves with L, B, or T would relate to the vain and shallow (albeit arguably stylish) stereotype on display here? Sorry to offend. I just wonder if you really think you are appealing to some wide audience with this narrow-minded "faggotry" (your words). Sincerely, Greg
Gay Job Spotlight: Police Officer
If your inclinations run towards power exchanges, then a police officer may be the perfect job for you! Police officers get to subjugate “criminals,” bind and restrain them, and then “process” them at the station. With the cameras that come standard on cops cars you may not be able to get head in exchange for ripped-up traffic tickets, but you will certainly be able to sneak a few unmarked...
Gay Job Spotlight: Capenters
Carpenters come in many forms, but they all have one thing in common: they get paid to nail stuff. Maybe if you’re lucky you’ll get to put a hard hat on. Carpenters, essentially, build things using their hard wood. They may build houses, buildings, or furniture. The benefits of carpentry are numerous: plenty of sunshine and thus a tan, lots of exercise, masculine posing, eroticized...
Gay Job Aspect: Vast Numbers of Female Coworkers
If legions of fag hags are in your future, then consider careers where men are in the minority. These jobs often require sensitivity, some “bedside” manner, and are generally considered lowly by holders of more butch jobs…which is awesome if you’re a bottom. This queer career aspect is especially well suited for femme boys: you’ll be treated like one of the girls and surrounded by other gays and...
Gay Job Aspect: Hypermasculinity
It’s hard to say for sure if gay men pursue hypermasculine jobs in reality or simply as a porno plot device, but either way the idea is firmly planted in, at minimum, every member of the village people. By this point it’s clear that not all the boys debarking ships during fleet week are looking for girls, so there’s a market. And if it will get your dick sucked, plenty of boys will sign up....
Gay Job Aspect: Excuses to Look Good Naked
Gay men are notoriously shallow. You could fight this urge and become an academic, or you could simply accept it and make your money-making enterprise the pursuit of being hotter than everyone else. Straight people are capable of this work as well, but no one knows how to pick out acceptably revealing clothing to flesh out their physique quite so well as your fellow homos. Go hit the gym and get...
Spending a ton of time deciding whether or not things are awesome produces vast quantities of those that are not. When things fail heartily enough or fall so far out of vogue that they become hilariously outdated, they fall into the amorphous world of kitsch. Kitschy jobs require skills at finding the hilarious amongst the garbage time produces. Whether its commenting on popular culture, being a...
Gay Job Aspect: Aesthetics
There is a very curious and unique aspect of gay culture that helps a taste for aesthetics blossom. In straight society, men play out mating displays for women and women for men, but neither reflects the other. In other words, men do men things, women do women things, and although they compete with one another they don’t find the things they do attractive in the opposite sex. However, when...
Gay Job Aspect: Artistic Production
In previous times, when gays were essentially banned from “normal” life, many became artists. They were actors, writers, dancers. The pull to art has always been larger than that, though. Theater comes naturally to many gay men who had to “play” straight people. Whole gay communities centered around the nomadic and flexible artistic life: Provincetown had frequent meet-ups of Tennessee Williams,...
Gay Job Aspect: Escapism
Since the mascot of gays is the drag queen, it should come as no surprise that escapism is a major aspect of gay jobs. Stereotypical gay life centers around bars (escapist), clubs (escapist), musicals (escapist), camp (escapist), and continual fantasies about that straight co-worker with the incredible smile (escapist). Indeed, at some point in early life a young queer is often the subject to...
Gay Job Aspect: Social Graces
“I suppose society is wonderfully delightful! To be in it is merely a bore. But to be out of it simply a tragedy.” —Oscar Wilde Perhaps because gays lie at a social intersection between men and women, and thus learn to communicate to both audiences while being a full-fledged “member” of neither, gays tend to have a distinct knack for jobs requiring social graces. As a group, gays are...
Gay Job Aspect: Cultivated Taste
“My native habitat is the theater. In it I toil not, neither do I spin. I am a critic and commentator. I am essential to the theatre.” —Addison DeWitt in All About Eve Let’s face facts: all gay men think they have spectacular taste. Indeed, as gays grow older they find their youthful abs become harder to keep up and realize that perhaps its time to gather a collection of interests and...
Gay Job Aspect: Plants
“Green Collar” homos abound in a variety of diverse fields. There are the obvious jobs involving plant matter: the florist, but also the more surprising horticulturist. Spending even a few minutes walking around a research farm or nursery will find you rolling in gentle men tending to plants. If nothing else, an interest in plants beautifies your home and garden and furthers your...
Gay Job Aspect: Snappy Uniforms
“Sometimes the attraction to the uniform is so powerful in me that I feel as if I am making love to the clothes, and the man inside them is just a convenience to hold them up and fill them out—sort of an animated display rack.” —Tom of Finland When it comes to looking good without having to think too much about it, little surpasses jobs requiring a snappy uniform. Most uniformed jobs...
After settling in to your new place it is imperative to find a way to make some bank, Dorothy. There are infinite ways to gather funding from the femme to the butch and everything in between. Anyone can snag a job, but only someone paying attention can get a gay job (or at least a fabulous one). But what makes a job gay? Is it something stereotypically gay people do? What if you’re too butch to...
