What we’re all about

EG: Examples for the Everyday Gay is a magazine that offers essays on culture, style, home, food, relationships, and travel for the gay person who has both good taste and a sensible budget. The gay person who loves dining out, but has a killer pot roast recipe; the gay person who can throw a great party, but also can throw a great curve ball in a baseball game; the gay person who wants to live a well-rounded, down-to-earth best life possible. For the person who is gay, but defined by so much more, there’s finally a magazine that speaks directly to you: EG magazine.

Meet The Everyday Gay(s)

Byron Flitsch (Founder/Lead Creative/Everyday Gay Personality)

As a professional freelance writer who’s written for a variety of national publications– The Advocate, Where, Time Out–it was an instant realization that there was no publication that directly spoke to the down-to-earth, creative, out-going, gay guy and girl who wanted to live the best life possible. While glossy magazines devoted to shirtless hotness and high-end fashion can be delicious eye candy to most, there’s never been a magazine that spoke to, well, the everyday gay. When he’s not scouring for the best experiences for his readers, Byron dwells in Chicago with his partner and pup. There’s nothing this coffee/sushi/flourless chocolate cake addicted gay won’t try once and mostly twice.

If you were born the opposite sex, what would your parents had named you?
Jennifer. I know! Byron as a guy… Jennifer as a girl. Very, um, opposite.

You’re stranded in an airport waiting for a flight. What are you doing to pass the time?
Writing. People watching. Feeding my magazine addiction in an overpriced airport store.

You have one day, $1000, and only get to choose one experience. What would it be?
Go to the airport, walk up to an airline, pick a random destination anywhere in the world, fly there, get a map and wander, find an incredible dinner spot, take a few pictures and send a few postcards. Totally brag when I get back.

What can you make in the kitchen like a pro?
One word: Guacamole. Two words: Watch out.

The one goal I will never give up on would be?
Never to become bored or uninspired.

If you could carry a scent in a bottle forever, what scent would it be?

Your going to totally judge me, but my boyfriend’s freshly worn t-shirt smell. I know…

Finish this sentence: I never go on a roadtrip without my

Lip syncing talent. I can mime any radio hit. Any.

If I used a sleep machine, the sound I would slumber to would be?
Rain storm. Not thunderstorm. Just to be clear, they’re so totally different.

If you were born the opposite sex, what would your parents had named you?
Probably Aimee since that is my little sister’s name.

You’re stranded in an airport waiting for a flight. What are you doing to pass the time?
Probably playing on my iPad while drinking a beer at an airport bar, while people-watching of course!

You have one day, $1000 and only get to choose one experience. What would it be?
Jump on the next flight to Egypt, see the pyramids and then return.  My Irish skin does not need to be in that desert sun for more than a day!

What can you make in the kitchen like a pro?
Mexican food! I worked in a Mexican Restaurant for 5 years during High School and still love to cook up some Arroz con Pollo.

The one goal I will never give up on would be?
To give 100% in everything I do.

If you could carry a scent in a bottle forever, what scent would it be?
Trick question, the scent in the bottle is poison! -Dwight Schrute

Finish this sentence: I never go on a roadtrip without…
my B and puppy, Dexter…ok and my iPad!

If I used a sleep machine, the sound I would slumber to would be?
The hum sound of the Starship Enterprise…but in reality, a fan.
