In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Justin Luke Zirilli about his new book “The Gay Gospel”, a survival guide written specifically for twenty-something gay men that tackles everything they need to know after coming out. It’s the first of its kind guidebook addressing dating, sex, break-ups, family issues, personal finance and more. Justin is one of NYC’s leading gay promoters presenting three of the largest weekly gay dance parties with his nightlife company BoiParty. In “The Gay Gospel” Justin draws from his personal experience as someone who survived his own tumultuous twenties with his observations and the countless requests for personal advice that he receives from party guests and friends alike. A quick, easy, fun read with no-nonsense and sometimes hysterical nuggets of wisdom and advice “The Gay Gospel” is a bible for young gay men confusedly wading into adulthood. We talked to Zirilli about his new survival book and his spin on our LGBT issues.
When asked what he would like to see happen for LGBT equality in the next few years Zirilli stated, “I would absolutely like to see marriage equality in all fifty of the states. I would also love to see the end of discrimination in the workplace for those in the LGBT community. We have very simple beginnings. I live in Manhattan and it’s still hard to believe there are certain states where your very identity can endanger your ability to work. We start there and from there we can go anywhere else. That is absolutely for me the most important thing to get nailed down in the next few years.”
Justin Luke Zirilli is Co-Owner and President of the New York-Based gay nightlife events company BoiParty with his partner Alan Picus. He is also the creator of “Gorgeous, Gay and Twenty-Something,” a private international Facebook group now comprised of over 8,000 members.
