Some Of Our Favorite #TenYearChallenge Posts

Social media has recently embraced a trend of posting side-by-side pictures of yourself in 2009 (or thereabouts) and in 2019, to show the world how life has treated you over the years.

We thought we’d do a round-up of notable LGBTQs, Instagram faves and more who have been taking part in the “How hard did aging hit you?” challenge, aka the “10 Year Challenge.”

Maybe it’s me, but I think most folks look way better with the additional decade than before.

There are posts that are humorous, and some definitely inspiring.

Scrolling through the side-by-side pics, there are folks who seem to have seriously age-defying genes (or are very good at FaceTune), and some are literally different people.

Maybe you love it, maybe you hate it? Let’s take a look.

Eliad Cohen looked great in swim suit ten years ago, but the “Papa Party” prez is just that much hotter today.

Jim Newman went even further back than 10 years because he wanted to give as close a matchup as possible. “Save a horse…”



Dan Tai literally went from boy to man. Man, did he ever!



Out actor Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) reminds us that age is just a number, and he wears his well:



Trans musician and model Jaimie Wilson admits life’s journey took a different route in his #10yearchallenge:




I’m Jumping on the #10yearchallenge even though I can’t actually do the challenge correctly because I have zero photos of me from 10 years ago. 10 years ago I was 13 without social media. The photos that exist of me back then I’m unable to have because my parents have them. That’s ok though. The important thing is that I know how much I’ve developed and grown into the man I was destined to become. These challenges are fun and all, and are an awesome reminder of how far I’ve come...but remember changes and growth are far more than physical. That’s something social media forgets sometimes.

"King Colbra" Star Garrett Clayton Shares Pictures Of His Engagement (From Last Year!)

Looks like Garrett Clayton’s 2019 is going to be a monumental one.

Back in August of 2018, Clayton came out by revealing his long term male partner. Now, the former Teen Beach Movie and King Cobra star recently revealed to his fans that he’s been engaged for a whole year!

Yesterday, both Clayton and his fiancé Blake Knight posted to Instagram to honor the anniversary of their engagement.

27-year-old Clayton wrote:

“It’s been 1 year since @hrhblakeknight asked me to marry him in Iceland on the most beautiful trip and the most beaufitul day of my life to date. I’ll never forget your face in that moment when you got down on one knee. Love, nervous, and excited (Obv, I was going to say yes) all rolled into the love of my life. Everyday with you is filled with joy and laughter. (even when we get heated every night over who has to get out of bed to turn off the hall light).”



It’s been 1 year since @hrhblakeknight asked me to marry him in Iceland on the most beautiful trip and the most beaufitul day of my life to date. I’ll never forget your face in that moment when you got down on one knee. Love, nervous, and excited (Obv, I was going to say yes) all rolled into the love of my life. Everyday with you is filled with joy and laughter. (even when we get heated every night over who has to get out of bed to turn off the hall light). . . 8 years! In a little over a month it’ll be 8 years together. Those being packed full of ups and downs. (90% ups) I’ll always be thankful that you walked into my 24 hour resturant when I first moved to LA. I was a waiter aspiring to be an actor. You were an assistant aspiring to be a writer. Now look at us! Living the dream together. Finding the strength in our unity with the loss of Orion. To finding out on my birthday in the dirty parking lot behind the resturant I worked at (at that time) that I lost my first big job / cut to you holding me later that night whipping away my tears and telling me it was only the beginning. You’ve never faltered in being a supportive, loving, stubborn, sensitive rock in my life. Here’s to another 100 years of traveling the world, stealing your socks and loving our babies, whether their dog babies or actual babies. I’ll love you forever. Happy anniversary, my darling. . (P.s. I’m getting my scarf out of my face in the engagement photo. Not clutching my pearls)

A post shared by Garrett Clayton (@garrettclayton1) on

As for Knight, like the true LA writer that he is, he shared three separate posts with long messages to honor their engagement.

“One year ago today, I got down on a knee in Iceland and asked this guy to marry me... I was so nervous and excited that I don’t even remember exactly what I said (even though I’d planned out the perfect speech in my head for weeks), but whatever it was must’ve been good... because he said yes!” he wrote in the first post, which is dedicated to engagement and the relationship."



One year ago today, I got down on a knee in Iceland and asked this guy to marry me... I was so nervous and excited that I don’t even remember exactly what I said (even though I’d planned out the perfect speech in my head for weeks), but whatever it was must’ve been good... because he said yes! @garrettclayton1, we’ve been together for nearly 8 awesome years now (8 years!), and I’ve loved growing alongside you. Like any couple, we’ve had our share of ups and downs—far more ups than downs, I can happily report—but all of it has made us stronger and brought us closer together. I so admire your kindness, your ambition, and your butt. And I’m glad that I pursued you incessantly after first seeing you working at that diner all those years ago, even though I legit limited myself to calling you only once every 5 days in the beginning so I didn’t seem too crazy. I love playing video games with you, taking midday naps with you (and @dartanddash), working in the garden with you, doing dishes with you, decorating cookies with you, running lines with you, singing in the car with you, listening to you sing in the shower (and the bedroom and the kitchen and IKEA and anywhere), arguing with you about what movie to watch next, watching you overthink board games, picking out furniture with you, organizing trips with you, meeting amazing people through you, planning a future with you, and building a life with you. But, most of all, I love that you encourage me to be a better person. Love you, so much, my handsome fiancé, and I’m so happy and lucky to get to spend my life with you... #tbt #lovewins #engayged #fiance #vöffla #engagementphoto #iceland #jokulsarlon @bestgaycouples1 #icelandtravel #gaycouple

@garrettclayton1’s ring, designed by me with the help of the wonderful jewelers at @justinduancejewellery in Penzance, UK!” he wrote in a second post that describes the ring and how he bought it.

The third post then explains a little more about the set-up to Blake Knight’s proposal. Said Knight, “This was such a fun/exciting day, shared with a few of our best friends.”

Happy anniversary to the happy couple.

Christian Keyes Lays It On The Gay Community!


Christian Keyes Lays It On The Gay Community!

The Actor Doesn't Want Your Thirst Comments

Woah! Okay, so by now you may have heard Let's Stay Together actor, Christian Keyes, has posted a video to his Instagram boldly asking his gay fans to stop sending him private, unsolicited messages, and commenting about his appearance on his photos. Check out Keye's video below:




If I respect your truth… Respect mine…

A post shared by Christian Keyes (@christiankeyes) on


Alright, so Keyes' delivery is a little aggressive. Immediately, he is concerned whether voicing his opinion on the topic is going to get him into trouble. Before he states/shares his stance, he proclaims to love the gay community, but I'm a little skeptical when he says that it's between "you and God", but ... okay. Anyway, I'm rather on Keyes' side on this one. Hear me out.

Constantly, I listen to a bunch of whiny, pretty mannequins and twinks within my social circle in West Hollywood complain about the "ugly, old guys" hitting on them at bars. They joke it's consider harassment. Then, some of those very same people are putting thirst trap comments underneath Instagram models (for the lack of a better term) photographs for all of us snide bitches to privately mock. It's virtually the same thing to me. These people on Instagram aren't really hunting for anything besides more likes, followers, comments, etc., to get their engagements up so they won't have to work. We live in an era where lazy is the new glamour and we can thank how we act and react to social media for that one. 



Now, imagine being a heterosexual man constantly dealing with gay men sending him direct messages of their bodies and cat calls? I scrolled through all of Keyes' Instagram and didn't necessarily find any photographs of pictures that make me want to dry hump my chair. The photos appear fairly innocent, focusing on his family, child, and lifestyle. Honestly, I had no idea who Keyes was until his video caught attention on a variety of blogs, so like, who is hunting after him?! As gay men, we need to try and understand not all heterosexual men want to sleep with us. Yes, perhaps everyone is a little gay, but there's no reason to virtually harass someone online to try and get ... what, laid at best? There are plenty of fish in the sea. Let's keep our eyes and comments to the ones who actually want to receive our praise. Trust me. There's a handful of Sean Cody "models" who are flaunting themselves on Instagram begging for your attention.

Body Positive Activist & Model Shares His Bully's Apology On Social Media

Egyptian/Canadian model and body positive activist Mina Gerges shared with his Twitter followers a surprise apology he received from his high school bully.

The screen capture of the message read, “Hey man, I just want to apologize for any f*cked up things I said to you or about you in high school. It weighs on me. I hope all is well. Cheers.”


Gerges followed up saying he asked the former bully why he was thinking on his actions eight years later.

“He said he felt really bad about it for a while, should’ve been kinder instead, and wished he’d done it sooner,” wrote Gerges. “We love growth!”

Gerges, who has a following of over 110K on Instagram, stepped into the public spotlight in 2015 thanks to his ‘budget conscious’ recreations of celebrity looks. His looks were featured on a host of media outlets including Buzzfeed, Teen Vogue, Paper and more.




I used shredded paper for my hair @beyonce #MinaGerges

A post shared by Mina Gerges (@itsminagerges) on


With the spotlight, though, came online haters who taunted him for his weight, which led to an eating disorder. 

Eventually, the experience inspired Gerges to become an ambassador for body positivity and unrealistic standards of beauty in advertising.

“My goal is to redefine what it means for men to feel beautiful and be considered attractive,” he told Paper. “I want to show that men who look like me can learn to love ourselves even if we don't look like conventional representations of men."

From moving past bullies and online trolls to inspiring folks with a message of body positivity. Mina Gerges, we love YOUR kind of growth!

Readers, have you ever received an apology from the past? If so, did it help heal some old wounds or no? Let us know in the comments below.

Gus Kenworthy Rounds Out 2018 With Yet Another Naughty joke On Social Media

Gus Kenworthy has made another dirty joke online.

The year of 2018 has been the year of Kenworthy thirst posts. From the Olympic skier lusting over other Olympic players, to him lusting over political leaders, to him lusting over actors, and lusting over singers, the man has been making plenty of dirty jokes online.

And it looks like the end of 2018 is more of the same as the skier decided to use clever posing to have some more of his naughty fun.

The openly gay athlete recently took a photo at Loveland Pass in Colorado and posed in front of a sign that said, “Loveland Pass | Elevation 11,991 ft.” But with the athlete standing in the middle of the sign, the message read something completely different.



Loveland Pass | Elevation 11,991 ft.

Again, we have had a year of Gus Kenworthy making sexual jokes online. While other stars like Todrick Hall are being chastised for making similar jokes, it looks like the internet can’t get enough of Kenworthy doing it.

Hunky Matthew Camp's New Video Project Needs Co-Stars

The oh-so-woofy actor/model/designer Matthew Camp is working on a new video project and you could be a part of it.

If you follow his social media, you know Camp is an intoxicating blend of good-looking country boy with a side of danger. Chatting with him can be a disarmingly charming equation.

The social media sensation (over half a million followers on Instagram alone) first attracted attention some years ago after moving to NYC and becoming a go-go boy.

But starring roles in indie movies like Getting Go: The Go Doc Project (which was loosely based on his life) and the experimental Sock Job quickly sent Matthew’s star into a new orbit.

At the same time, he was encouraged by friends to design his own line of t-shirt and leather gear fashions. Matthew says he took a couple of classes in construction and pattern making a few years ago for the ABCs of it all, but admits to having an interest in fashion since he was a kid. Plus, he launched a line of provocatively named fragrances (8.5, Transgression) that are inspired by and conjure up his memories of working in bars around sexy men.

A big proponent of the sex-positive movement, he’s also an ambassador for Oraquick, the home HIV test. Matthew is big on encouraging people to know their status by getting tested on a regular basis and owning your own sexual health.

His new video project delves into a person’s sexual personality by exploring formative sexual experiences from their past. The format will be a hybrid of documentary/experimental art film and the producers are looking for folks to take part in the project on camera with Matthew. 

Hit the play button to hear the woofy Mr. Camp chat all these topics and more. 

Here’s just a bit of our Q&A with the hunky 34-year-old. 

Instinct: Hey hey, Matthew!

Matthew Camp: Hey Randy, how are you?

Instinct: I’m great - tell me about your new project…

MC: Well, I'm not sure exactly how much I'm supposed to really talk about the specifics. But, I'm really excited about it.

It's basically a few of the sexual experiences that I've had that I found to be more on the profound side. It's sort of like a re-enactment of those things.

I feel like a lot of times when you see men that are having a sexual encounter, it's not - I don't wanna sound like a romance novel - but it's not romantic at all. It's very animalistic, which is great, but also, there are other sides to sexuality that are softer and more about communing. So, we're exploring those kinds of ideas.



Instinct: When will the public see some of this?

MC: We're starting to shoot next week, so I think that it will take two to three months, maybe, to have a turnaround, considering editing. So, pretty soon.

Instinct: With so many social media followers, do you feel a pressure to keep coming up with fresh content?

MC: Of course. I definitely feel that way, but I also know that you can go to the well too many times. And so, I think it’s really about building strong neuro-connections with the people that are consuming your product.

So, you don't wanna blast them with the same content over and over again. It's like a drug, they're gonna get used to it, you gotta switch it up, and you gotta give them a diverse emotional landscape. It can't just all be d*ck, d*ck, d*ck, d*ck, d*ck - they need a little bit of everything.

Instinct: One of the things that I think sets you apart on Instagram, and this is just my opinion, and I mean this in the best way possible, is some of the popular accounts I follow can get a little ‘slick.’ Perhaps a little too polished. Your Instagram account never looks like you're trying too hard to impress.

MC: Thank you, I appreciate that.



Instinct: Also, in addition to being an actor and model, you’re a designer. T-shirts, leather gear… and fragrances. You have three fragrances now - 8.5, Camp and Transgression. How did you get involved in fragrances?

MC: I was playing around at a friend's house with some oils, and just created 8.5. Of course, I’ve edited it since then, a little bit, but it's pretty much the same original formula. I like fragrances, because they conjure up feelings without words. And I think that's extremely strong communication. And what is art but communicating with people's subconscious?

Instinct: Is it hard to date Matthew Camp, when you have half a million followers on Instagram who know your life to a certain degree?

MC: I think that it can be very difficult to navigate that space. Relationships are very difficult to begin with, anyway. Especially long term ones, and romantic ones, at that.

So, I really try and maintain friendships with people, more than sexual relationships. Or even, romantic relationships, I should say.

But, I was dating someone recently, and they were very conflicted about my work. I think on one side, I appealed to their business mind, and they like that I make money, and I'm self-sufficient. But, I think on the other side, they also were very jealous.

So, yeah, it definitely can take a toll on my personal life. But I've kind of melded the two into one now, so I don't really have a personal life anymore now. It's just all Matthew Camp, all the time (laughing).




A post shared by Matthew Camp (@matthewcamp) on


Instinct: One more thing - you’re a big proponent of getting tested for HIV and knowing your status. With the advent of in-home testing available, that’s become a lot easier, hasn't it?

MC: I definitely think it takes away sort of the fear element of it. And a lot of people don't have health insurance either - it's expensive to go to the doctor and get tested if you don't have health insurance. Then you're stuck at a Planned Parenthood, if you don't have health insurance. I think it's great that people can take their own health into their own hands.

Instinct: Thanks for chatting, Matt. Good luck on the new project!

MC: Thank you, it was nice talking to you.

And if you’d like to submit yourself for casting in his new video project write to campchaosseries@gmail.com. The project will be shot in New York state. Producers ask for serious submissions only, and only via email.

Facebook's New Community Standards Ban Users From Expressing Their Sexual Preferences

First Tumblr and now Facebook!

Censorship has been coming down hard this week, though this latest story has been months in the making.

On October 15, Facebook updated its community standards to specify what counts as “sexual solicitation.” PC Mag reports that the social media platform sees any mention of sexual roles and expression of sexual preference as a warning sign for sexual solicitation.

These “red flags” of “abusive behavior” will not only be monitored on Facebook posts but also links and images shared as well. This also goes for other social media apps owned by Facebook like Facebook Messenger and Instagram.

Again, this change went into effect in October, and is only now being noticed. Why, you might ask? Because of Tumblr’s recent announcement that it will be banning all adult content on December 17th. Many are comparing the two social media platforms and noting their specific effect on queer culture.

Many LGBTQ users use Facebook to engage and discuss queer issues and perspectives on life. There are a multitude of Facebook groups and chats where users think they have the privilege to express themselves, their sexualities, and their ways of life.

But now, it appears that Facebook is openly opposing such discussions.

In addition, Facebook users mysteriously saw a crackdown on LGBTQ advertisements on the social media platform in October. Users complained after many LGBTQ themed ads were blocked by the company. Facebook then told the Washington Post that this surge of censorship was an error in the system.

As the Washington Post wrote:

"The rejections, the majority of which Facebook told The Post were in error, underscore the company’s challenges in regulating the massive amount of information flowing through its service, an issue that burst into the fore after the disclosure that Russian-state actors used advertisements on Facebook to sow discord during the 2016 U.S. election. But they also touch on a deeper tension as the company seeks to better regulate political uses of its platform."


On the outside, it’s hard to tell how these community standards are effecting LGBTQ groups and organizations. But, we can provide a possible example.

One Instinct reader messaged us to express how FB had flagged two attempts at sharing one of our articles. Keep in mind, this wasn’t a “flesh piece” sharing an Instagram model or naughty music video. Instead, it was an article about how Taiwan’s lawmakers are trying to settle for gay unions instead of legalizing gay marriage.

While the post was approved after the Instincter requested a second review, this is a sign that Facebook’s algorithm is notched against LGBTQ content. Of course, this isn’t whole and total proof, but we LGBTQ social media users should be on our guard.

It seems the American internet is currently on a wave of censorship, and LGBTQ users are taking the hardest hit.

Florida Man Arrested For Kidnapping His Instagram Date By Gunpoint

A Florida man is behind bars after he used Instagram to trap a gay man into a dangerous kidnapping.

According to TC Palm, an unidentified victim started talking to a couple of men through social media. Eventually, this victim arranged to meet two men for a sexual encounter worth $50. One of those men was 20-year-old Matthew Evans.

As the victim told police, he met Evans and another man around 11 p.m. on November 18th at the Sebastian River Landing clubhouse near Sebastian Boulevard and 90th Avenue in Vero Beach, Florida.

After meeting up and getting into a car, Evans became hostile and placed the victim into a choke hold while calling him anti-gay slurs. Meanwhile, the other man drove the group away.

Eventually, the group ended up at San Sebastian Park, where a third man was waiting with a handgun, according to a police warrant.

This is when Evans demanded the agreed upon $50 for the sexual encounter. Supposedly, the victim refused and was then punched in the face consecutively by Evans until he blacked out.

When the victim awoke, he as alone in the park with a bloodied face, a broken nose, a caved-in cheekbone, and without his sweatpants, cellphone, and money.

The man walked home for 20 minutes like that before he could call 911.

After investigating and searching, police were able to separately find Matthew Evans and the victim’s pants. The two other assailants are still at large.

Arrest warrants are out for the driver and the man with the gun as Evans remains behind bars without bail.

'Kingsman' Star Taron Egerton Might Have Just Come Out

Did Taron Egerton, the star of the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, just come out?

That’s what fans are wondering after he posted a photo on his newly-launched Instagram account.

The post shows an unnamed young man with the simple caption, “Cutie. My boy (heart).”




Cutie. My boy

A post shared by Taron Egerton (@taron.egerton) on


Now, this could be a ‘bromance’ moment. Or, the Kingsman star might be coming out in the most chill way possible.

Even though the Instagram account is only days old (there’s a total of just five posts), Egerton already has over 100,000 followers on the social media platform.

And for the most part, those fans were supportive of the news.

“He is adorable. But is someone coming out or just bromancing”

“I really hope this is your coming out happy for you”

“Omg my if Taron is gay, my dream finally came true lol”

“the gays have won”

One commenter wrote, “does that mean he’s got a boyfriend now,” and Egerton ‘liked’ the comment.

In another playful exchange, a fan asked Egerton to tag the young man in order to reveal his identity and he responded writing, “Nah, he’s mine and mine only.”

Some folks say the truth has been in front of us for a long time.



We're guessing we'll get a definitive answer sometime, but the bottom line is if Taron is coming out as gay or bisexual, good on him.

And if the post was just a bromance thing, good on Taron for being comfortable in his own skin.

Rocketman is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019. Check out the trailer below.
