    I actually enjoyed this. Been feelin Tripp since that reality show. 100% my type of dude.

    Brodney is actually really handsome, but sounds like a 12 yr old girl. Sorry, not sorry.

    I like the juan n gee dynamic and the fact that theyre using their years long relationship as a platform to come up. Visibility matters. However, Im personlly not feeling them dedicating their ball to the ballroom community this year. Everything gay doesnt have to be for EVERY gay under the lgbtrnsgdkfneianzn___ umbrella. U can't just be an accountant, doctor, mailman, hairstylist OR bartender who HAPPENS to be gay and uninterested in super stereotypical gay shyt, and still get to kick back.

    I also feel like, while not a couple, but esp w the roundtable approach, @Nick Delmacy n @Ockydub could have ran this lane for years, esp as legit masc dudes. I understand the disinterest in universal visibility, but I also get that this many years in, wer'e STILL talking about the lack of diversity/masc men being willing to rep.

    And Brodney reps a big part of rhe problem. How are u a handsome, personal trainer whose been on EVERY damn gay reality show, but ur out here talking bout 'getting to know someone' and 'hanging out' for a damn year?! He is too damn old to be coming up w alternative labels for dating! Like, seriously?!

    *one day, when im prob 90, and no one cares about me, the gays will get real w themselves...i believe it...i think*

    Ha, I thought the same thing. He mad attractive but the "gay" voice and mannerisms, geeze. I wonder if that may play a factor to him being single?

    Not sure what you mean by this one bro. Its crazy to me when dudes try to act like the ballroom community is beneath them or not apart of the gay community because its so "stereotypical". Ballroom is just as apart of the gay experience as dragqueens, DL men, Muscle men,intellectual men, religious, etc. And even more so because they put themselves out there creatively. To my understanding, their gentlemens ball has been going on for a year or so now, so dedicating a salute this year to the ballroom community isn't gonna hurt anyone.

    Ijs, gay men are only celebrated for doing 'gay shyt'. Im 100% aware that its often the one's who put themselves out there who get recognized for their contributions.

    Im not knocking the ballroom community, but as a dancer who knows SEVERAL ballroom folks, I know that they have several award shows for their community.

    I just liked their initial approach. Theyve been around for several years and a friend of mine is now on the planning committee. Ijs all gays aren't the same, and we as blks know that umbrella first hand.

    BTW, I guess i definitely need to get my ass out more at least with all the content online, because I NEVER even heard of these dudes. Juan and Gee. And in doing background after I seen this vid, they have been doing it for over 3 years. HA. I appreciate the candid talk and ability to back up there opinions with the receipts of being certified relationship/life coach. Thats wassup. Glad for them.

    That part. I agree absolutely SB3. I often feel there is a sense of disconnect on this site at times with what it feels like it represents. And by that I mean a slight secret DL climate thats the undertone when it comes to Nick and Ock and Cypher Ave. I know the guys are not closeted as they have stated in podcast, but when you see videos like this you can't help but to wonder after all these years of doing this, Nick and Ock have never held a group discussion or panel and it be taped and visually seen as oppose to just hearing voices?

    Something about that just seems a bit disingenuous. I understand they may be unwilling to become "gay celebs" but some, even a little visual content of them actually talking and being seen could possibly give their site more credibility and help younger masculine guys in being comfortable with themselves. But I'm sure they heard all of that before. Carry on fellas.

    Yea man, this site helped me come out at 31! 30 fukn 1!!! I had spent 99% of my 20s playing dl 'house' and knew that I didn't relate to anything I associated w 'gay'.

    All of this from someone who literally toured the country as a dancer/actor/singer w a Broadway play, yet was still playing straight because I didn't click w the several white gays I was around.

    But yea, randomly finding this site honestly changed my outlook. In a dl relationship for all those years, I didnt get to have a messy, slutty, 20s where I could consistently meet and navigate other masc guys.

    Ive always wished nick n ocky were more forward n visible, but i also understand their feelings of 'wtf are u gonna do for the cause, at least we gave a space?!' And I cant at all relate to trying to run a website (i want my un-smart flip phone back).

    Hey, maybe they'll let some of us vets contribute to the podcast haul one day. All they have to do is scrap em if they don't 'fit' the brand. Ijs

    Now y'all know that Juan and Gee, nice guys as they probably are, really can't tell me anything I didn't already know. I'll watch this later....maybe.

    I would really only be interested in the povs of non scene average Joes who are struggling. Not web reality vets.

    Yea, I didn't watch the whole thing. I feel like this topic is played tf out. How many times are we going film ourselves talking about how hard it is to date. And then to have the gaul to complain about Atl like there aren't hundreds of other cities out there with even less potential.

    Obviously not happening anytime soon but -> Honestly, the black community needs a complete paradigm shift as a whole towards supporting our same gender loving brothas and sistas. Only then will the dating pool open up and move away from the extremes of visible gay fems and hidden dl creeps. Although, I will say, the middle ground is slowly opening up...

    And Brodney is very unattractive lmao.

    Well tell us how u REALLY feel. I get the 'played out' part, but what I really think, personally, is hearing it from the same lane of the large, broad, blk gay community.

    And having listened to the whole episode, Im not at all surprised at how different Tripp's outlook was from Brodney's. I feel like it's often guys who have ran thru a bunch of potential, 'couldve, maybe, been something-s' that are always trying to re-define dating.

    I am not sure what about this discussion is specific to Atlanta other than they're talking about their experiences in Atl. The same discussion could be copied pretty much word for word by two DC (Don't Care) guys. Not dissing it, just lamenting its universality. I did LMAO when Tripp Ali described his recent date; I hope it is the last time he goes to a place 1 1/2 hours early to be sure to get a table. Anyone who does that deserves better.

    LMAO First off, I didn't even know wtf a "DM" was until a few months ago, and @ControlledXaos told me. Besides Im not even on Social Media like that. All I have is this and FB, and Badoo but I haven't been on there in years.

    2nd, I DO leave my house every day to go to work, bruh. I work in midtown and I'm outside on the street enough to gauge my level of attractiveness through the eyes of "the public", and if it ain't got titties and a toto (or want's to have/ thinks it has titties and a toto), it ain't interested. I'm done, bro. My time is up. LOL I'm old as f#$k (well, I feel old, don't look it), I'm in that weird stage between average and gaining weight, so my clothes fit funny, for religious reasons I'm dressed in all white (for the next 5 months) so that not only makes me look like a weirdo but enhances the out-of-shapeness, and I smoke. Ain't nobody checkin' for this, bruh. LOL!!!!

    I was gonna watch this video and comment on it here yesterday but 22 comments deep, not sure if I can catch up :pachah1:

    But my hot takes so far: Brodney is too "pretty" and seems like one of those "I'm picky" Bottoms who just want to find a wealthy Top to wife them up. Tripp Ali (or whatever his real name is) comes off younger than he looks at times (is he older than me or has he had a rough life?!?!?) but I can see him being the type that enjoys drama and conflict in his relationships, whether self imposed or not.

    Based on who being attractive? Tripp?! I just got that vibe from his interview and seeing the type of guys he actually interacts with at a house party not too long ago.

    On second thought, I'd rather just read the comments than listen to these guys babble...I mean, we have an overly "pretty" ATL socialite and a neck & hand tattooed softcore porn actor moaning about the difficulties of dating in ATL. :whut:

    LMAOOOO. Bro, all of this!!!

    Im glad I'm not the only one that when I see a thread late and see over 20 comments I think, "fuck it, too late to comment now" LOL. Good one

    And yep Nick, I agree with your assumptions about them both. We could be judging them a bit, but you hit it spot on with the first impressions you get after hearing them and their dating dilemmas.

    He came off like a good catch in this particular interview and the only thing I disagreed with him was the Jack'd part. He basically thinks that anyone on there is a hoe yet he was on there at one point looking for love/relationship and felt like he was the only one. So he comes off judgemental. But I'm not buying this above it attitude.

    Ha. Well if thats the case. I would give it a go with the chocolate one. I think he is attractive.

    The light skin one is ok too, but not as much.

    No one wants to see a bunch of inshape third way decent looking gay dudes lamenting on not being able to date/find anyone.

    I'm petty sure these dudes have requirement that are way beyond what they commonly see.
