Homo In The City was created to share the trials and tribulations of being a young, gay professional in the city of Washington, DC. Having been a Washingtonian now for enough time to call the city my home, you can look forward to biased content slandering gay Republicans, the Hill, DC Interns, those twinks who throw up after almost every meal, and those annoying 40-year-old men who insist on buying you a drink. Welcome to Homo In The City.

Changing of the Guard.

[Everyone always talks about how this city is so transient]

Well, it's now late August here in the District -- which means it's high time for this city to kick out the annoying summer interns of K Street [or Summer Associates as they call themselves -- and oh, they have the security badge to prove it] and welcome in the whole new slew of people who are equally as ecstatic to be living here.

The buzz of elections is in the air -- both local and Federal -- and with these changes, comes the shuffling of new people. Some of the new staffers we enjoy...while others [and ex-boyfriends for that matter], we wish would just flat-out leave this city sooner than later. No -- let's be honest, sometimes we wish they'd just leave the damn planet already!

How can you be so sure the change is in the air? Take a look around Northwest on any given weekday -- the Homos are hoppin' down the sidewalks to their iPods! I'm driving to work blasting my homo-music at ear-piercing levels -- and ohh my god -- I haven't seen that many attractive gay men on the streets of Georgetown U for the entire summer! Haha, well lucky me!

But despite how much I may despise this city's transient nature -- or the District in its entirety -- I have to admit, I do understand why they come: Washington DC is an excellent place to fast-track your career. Having gone to school here myself, interned on K Street and [vomit] worked with the Hill -- and now, moved on up in the private sector -- I know this city has presented me with loads of opportunity.

Someone close to me once said "DC is what you make of it" -- and it's something I think of on a daily basis.

I've met too many, snob-nosed Hill Rats who work like dogs for shitty pay for the sake of their precious title -- and far too many gay Republicans! [but we'll save that topic for a later date]

The point is, if you don't like certain aspects of DC (whether it be the Hill, politics, or this city's plastic people [photo documentation]) -- don't make them a part of your daily life -- or better yet, work as a consultant and clean up their silly mess ;-) God knows this city can always use more project management consultants with PMP certifications :-)

Opportunity certainly exists in this city. Thousands of Washingtonians network the SHIT out of this city on daily basis like they were banging a prostitute on their DEATH BED -- and just wanted to get some hot stripper ass before their last breath!

I.E. Have you ever gone out to Halo [photos] and not seen some pretentious homo hand out his business card to someone he's flirting with? [vomit again] Yea, I knew you felt a little vomit in your mouth last time you were there.

The bottom line: if you use and abuse the District like the one-night stand she is, don't expect to find much. But if you romance her -- and find the bits and pieces of the city that you do love -- she'll do good by you. You just have to let her.

Your Homo In The City,
