Uma das maiores dúvidas entre alunos de idiomas é como que conseguimos aprender e melhorar nossas habilidades linguísticas com filmes, séries e músicas. Se você aprende algum idioma, você sabe do que estou falando. Todo aluno comenta sobre isso. Todo aluno quer poder usar suas séries preferidas para poder avançar de nível no idioma. Bom, e se eu te contasse que isso não é impossível, nem muito menos difícil? É muito possível poder avançar em qualquer idioma usando suas músicas, filmes e séries preferidas.

Porém, é simples, mas não tão óbvio assim. Muita gente assiste bastante conteúdo no idioma que…

Travel. World. Travel Tips.

And why you should visit them.

Art by Marianne Botero

Traveling is, without a shadow of a doubt, my number one favorite thing to do. I’ve been to thousands of incredible places all around the world, and they all surprised me with something new and fascinating. But, although visiting these places allowed me to live something unique, it doesn’t exclude the fact that I have my top favorite places in the world. When I tell people I’ve traveled to 18 different countries, the first question they ask me is which one is my favorite. …

This is one of the most common questions I get asked every time people find out that I came out of the closet at the age of 22. They want to know what gave me the strength and the courage to finally come out of the closet after living inside for so many years.

If you read the 6 stories that I published during Pride Month in 2021, you have probably noticed that I mentioned a couple of times that coming out of the closet wasn’t a single act, but it was a very long process. …

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m an opera singer and musical theater obsessed. Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always loved to sing and listen to classical music, and songs from the greatest musicals. If you take a look at my playlist on Spotify, you’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s mostly this genre. So, growing up with this huge passion, one of my biggest dreams was to live in New York City. I knew that by living in the city, I’d be able to watch at least one Broadway show per month.
When I…

Have you ever been in an awkward situation where someone makes a very stupid comment about who you are or about what you do? Or a situation that somebody makes a super rude question? Well, that happens all the time to gay guys.

There are so many questions and comments that straight people usually make that make me feel extremely uncomfortable. I decided to choose the 5 that drives me crazy the most. If you are that type of person who chooses to say these dumb shit, don’t forget to avoid them next time you talk to a gay person.

6- You’re not a man

A poem against homophobia

I still don’t get it.

Why are you people so homophobic?
When I walk down the hall holding hands with my boyfriend

Why do you bother?
I don’t even owe you a single dollar.

I still don’t get it.

I don’t get when you all talk about the things I should and should not do
Acting as if my life belongs to you
You look at me like you look at those animals at the zoo.

I still don’t get it.

My life is worth celebrating as well as yours,
But I feel locked inside because you refuse to open the…

One of the most common questions I get asked by my friends is what are some of the biggest challenges I have to face as a gay man. Everybody is sure that there are plenty. But if you’re not gay yourself, or if you don’t have many gay friends who openly talk about their struggles, the chances are very low that you know all the shit that we have to go through. Here are my top 3 challenges:

3- Living in a heteronormative world

This is not new to anybody. We all know that we live in a heteronormative society. Everything and everyone force this idea…

High School

When I was in high school, I fell in love with the world of language learning. I learned English as a second language, and Spanish as a third. During the third year of high school, I was attending the best Logistics Technical School, but I didn’t want to work…

Yes, you heard that right. I’m a gay man, and I’ve always known I’m gay since I was a little kid. But I lived in the closet for 22 years. Here is how it all went:

Being gay as a kid:

Of course, as a kid, I wouldn’t understand what was going on. One of my first memories as a gay kid was when I asked my mom what it was like to kiss my dad. He had a beard and I wondered what it felt like to kiss a guy who had a beard. My friends at school would talk about all the girl…

Traveling is one of the most extraordinary ways to live life. It allows you to find yourself when you travel solo, deepen your bond when you travel with someone, and live unforgettable moments that wouldn’t happen if you stayed home. But of course, it’s easier said than done. Sometimes you need a little advice.

One day I was talking to one of my best friends about traveling the world, and after I shared a story of when I went to Europe for the first time, he asked me a very interesting question. He said: “Gabe if you could give me…
