Spring Break With Grandad on MTV

Gay Oklahomans like my uncle, son of Oral Roberts, bear the weight of stories the straights refuse to tell. Now I am chasing down — and sharing — his own tale. At age 37, Uncle Ronnie was found in a car on the side of a backcountry road, shot dead. He was gay and closeted and, for 10 years now, I have been chasing what few facts remain about the part of his life my family has swept under the rug. I chase after this private history because I am gay as well and, if I am silent, my family could erase me the way they have tried to erase my uncle.

Unless you've been living in a cave, you've no doubt heard the term "Dad Bod," and have subsequently seen a marked increase in the number of paunchy, fuzzy man-tummies in your strolls through the Internet. This phenomenon has had beer-bellied men rejoicing, some women crying foul and me wondering why this is news. Dad Bods aren't a new trend, at least not with the always-ahead-of-the-curve Gays. They're called Bears , and as a card-carrying member of this cuddliest of gay subcultures, I want to officially welcome you to the party!
So when his dad texted him on April 2 requesting a "pic of u and ur boy toy" to show his customers at the restaurant he works in, Louis wasn't exactly surprised.

And apparently, it's not uncommon for Louis Sr. As you can imagine, Christian and Louis's dad hit it off early on. And the long-distance nature of their relationship definitely played a hand in how quickly they've gotten to know each other.
