Today, Manhattan’s High Line serves as a daily refuge from the mean streets of Chelsea (ha), where tourists and tourists alike can sip $6 coffees as they marvel at the earth-shattering views of New York that being thirty feet up affords.

That is to say, it’s an entirely lovely — albeit buttoned-up and yuppie — experience.

Man Seriously Regrets Coming Out After Family Is Aggressively Supportive

by Derek de Koff September 26, 2016

When he came out to his progressive family at the family barbecue, he didn’t want no trouble. Just a pat on the back and the relief of knowing he could “move on with their support.” But no such luck. That close, ever-smiling, ever-prying family support didn’t stop after the obligatory “We’re so proud” and “It’s [...]
