Advice for a 25 year old feeling lost?

I'm not sure how to ask this question. I've been in a weird funk lately where I've been feeling lonely and frustrated due to many factors. I guess I am just having a quarter life crisis in that I am 25 and feel a little lost professionally and personally. [more inside]

How to tactfully explain to people that I’m not straight?

I got married last year (!). My husband and I are both queer, and both have a history of same-sex relationships before we met one another. This hasn't caused any problems in our own relationship, but it’s causing some unexpected confusion at our LGBT-friendly church. [more inside]

How do I realistically satisfy my bicuriousity?

I am a cis-female in my late 20s, and I've considered myself straight for most of my life. Around my mid 20s I started to realize that I had a secret desire for a woman to come on to me as a sexy fantasy, but still aligning myself as straight. However this desire slowly grew and I started to have intense dreams of having sex with women and now I really want to make this happen in reality. I have no idea how to approach this. [more inside]

I want to go deeper, IYKWIM

I would love to read an LGBT blog that's more substantive than the usual fare of today's politics and pop culture. It could cover all kinds of topics, as long as it was through an LGBT lens. Ideal would be The Toast's LGBT posts with more male and genderqueer voices (but no less feminist). A close second would be something like Ta-Nehisi Coates' blog, written by someone queer. What's out there? [more inside]

LGBT bars north of Cincinnati

Asking for my girlfriend, who is travelling in a north Cincinnati suburb and looking for a LGBT-friendly bar tonight. She's staying in West Chester and looking for something closer than the Northside neighborhood. She has a car, but doesn't want to drive "too far". Not looking for a hookup (no meat-markets), more just a place with friendly people where she can get a nice drink and chat/make friends.

Help me locate a short science fiction story available online

I'm trying to find a science-fiction story that I saw on a webpage once. I can only remember a few odd miscellaneous details: the author was gay and French, he had a page about his graduate-level math research, and I think his name may have had "David" or "Simon" in it. His webpage was in both English and French, and I'm pretty sure it talked about Alan Turing on part of it. The story itself was based on the premise that the ancient Greeks discovered space travel 2000 years ago and spread throughout the galaxy, creating a galaxy-wide Hellenic-style empire. I believe only the first chapter of the story was written, which was mostly the Earthling protagonist discovering the empire, exposition about its history and politics, and him having sex with some Greek-god-lookalike guy from the Empire.
