TYRANT 9 PRE-ORDER/POST-OP
A year’s passed since the last issue of the Tyrant came out. That’s fucked up. This is unacceptable for a magazine that is supposed to be a bi-, or even tri-, quarterly, and my sole excuse is that I don’t have an excuse. I want to blame it all on Luke (co-editor, friend, part-time lover) in full, for moving to Texas, but I won’t, because I really can’t. Whatever took it so long (and come on, who noticed or really cares that much?), to try to make up for the time you’ve had to wait, I thought I would expose/humiliate/shame myself for you all to have a good cringe or laugh at. Hopefully maybe both. My idea for the cover was to have me in drag on it because I thought it would be really like, self-absorbed-seeming. I wanted to try to get ultra-vanity press on it, even though that doesn’t even mean that.
I’ve always thought drag queens were exceptionally brave people, but personally, I’ve never been “into” wearing women’s clothes or looking like a woman. However, I have done it twice in the past year so who knows what’s up with that. Drag is such an odd experience. For me, it was strangely intoxicating. While I was dressed up, and even for a couple of hours after, I felt like I’d been drugged, but in a good way. Probably best we don’t get into all that here though.
For the shoot, I asked my boyfriend to do me up in something sleazy, so he did. Ryan Field, my oldest friend (did Montessori together), took pictures of the whole thing. A few weeks after, I was looking at what the cover image was to be on my iPhone when I tapped it and it zoomed in like iPhones do when you tap them. I thought the zoomed pic looked more iconic or something and I liked that better than the full shot for the cover which, though also a good photo, just makes me look like, gay or something. Maybe I was wrong, but I feel like I’ve captured the essence of “trying too hard” pretty well. Will Baker (one of my interns) took all of the outtakes from the shoot and put them in a slideshow, accompanied by a song I used to hate but now, thanks to Dent May, just fucking LOVE. I’m kind of hesitant to post this weird thing. It feels wrong and embarrassing, but that’s what we’re supposed to be doing, right? Humiliating ourselves? Also, I really want to promote the new Tyrant because it fucking rules. In this issue, to be released on November 20th, you will find these champions of putting it down:
Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino
Mitchell S. Jackson
Karl Taro Greenfeld
and Ken Sparling
There’s so much good stuff in this one. Please trust me on this. You should be able to trust a guy who just showed you some deeply embarrassing shit, right? Order here.
N.B. I know that the m/f ration is fucked on this. I can’t help it.
N.M.B. My boyfriend, Chris March, made the red and black thing I’m wearing over my shoulders. It’s made out of human hair and was originally a skirt.

i’d buy a poster of one of those photos. maybe a couple.
Gianca is my kind of gal–classy and sophisticated.
Yeah, I’d dig a few posters.
coveting the red and black thing, obs.
enjoyed the video. you look stunning!
I am flattered. I was nervous about you in particular seeing this.
“Whatever took it so long (and come on, who noticed or really cares that much?)”
I bet more people than you’d guess. I certainly did- ecstatic there’s a new issue!
I love this, especially the slideshow aspect. FABULASH
~2:01 — nice guns.
This is amazeballs.
Stellar roster aside, Jason Schwartz alone is worth the cover price. A German Picturesque is one of my all-time favorite books. Where has this guy been?
damn, i wanna light your cigarette. also, fucking amazing lineup. tyrant swag!
the cigarette’s fantastic. GLAMOUR KILLS.
lol gay or something
taro greenfield and scott mclanahan rule
Ordered! Love you, Gian.
my recollection is that *I* was the one you were showing it to when you did the accidental tap zoom, and it was *my* idea for you to go with the extreme close up. but i was probably drunk. (i am drunk right now.)
i mean this in all humility: why the fuck isn’t my name on the back cover?
This is fucking great. Gian: you’re purdy. I know you and Scott are all into each other’s Virginias, but just imagine me complementing you in a Texas way.
welp this is the fucking shit
[…] At HTML Giant, news of the next issue of New York Tyrant. […]
Congrats on getting Genesis P’Orridge for the cover.
Eno, Gian, Gino. Whatever. You had me from ‘fucked up’.
Gay and lesbian people fall in love. We settle down. We commit our lives to one another. We raise our children. We protect them. We try to be good citizens.

At full salute, I’m not a terribly well hung guy. My dick is slender, but long enough. I’m just a little over six inches, which is modest, but suits my build well. Besides, I had never received any complaints and I wasn’t the sort of guy to be insecure about that sort of thing. Marco didn’t seem to have any problems either as I could now tell he was stroking himself pretty vigorously.Letting go of my cock to lick and slick the palm of my hand, I gave Marco Navarro a good view of my lone, erect pole so that he could admire its shape and slightly curved contour. I reached back down and twisted my saliva-lubed palm all around my head and shaft. Once my dick was pulsating and well greased, I forced it down by the base to angle the tip back into the opening of the Yoo-Hoo bottle. The wide-mouth was just right to grab around the girth of my slender prick. And when I forced myself all the way in, my tip just tickled the inside of the bottom while the mouth of the bottle rested against my pubes. My Dick was hot n ready to bust in my man Marcos mouth
