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. It was like the worst thing in my life was immediately gone and I had complete freedom to dedicate all my time to exactly what I wanted to do, and most importantly I had a job day one after graduating. So many people in my classes graduated in 4 years with honors and couldnít find any work in a major city. I...

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 ó other comics, audience members, married heterosexual audience member couples ó and proposition me after shows. I would be just talking about my life ó having a girlfriend, going to a movie with that girlfriend, whatever ó and for some reason, that would get folks going. Theyíd want to talk to me about my sex life, or worse, their sex life. And the thing is, Iím not into men. Because Iím a lesbian. So Iím not into men.
