PropertyOfZack have released a new feature (and new site) titled "Inside." In its inaugural edition, POZ goes inside Run For Cover Records.
My motivation for graduating college was pretty much solely to have time to get a handle on Run For Cover, and when I got my last semester of grades and knew I graduated, it was definitely one of the happiest and relieving moments of my life.

Comedienne and Laughspin guest columnist Cameron Esposito put together a wonderful, thought-provoking piece on being a gay comic, homophobia in comedy, and being heckled by other stand-ups. Check it out here.
For years guys would come up to me — other comics, audience members, married heterosexual audience member couples — and proposition me after shows. I would be just talking about my life — having a girlfriend, going to a movie with that girlfriend, whatever — and for some reason, that would get folks going. They’d want to talk to me about my sex life, or worse, their sex life. And the thing is, I’m not into men. Because I’m a lesbian. So I’m not into men.
