Welcome, friend.

We're glad you found us. Settle in as we tell you a story — our story.

Our stories of faith, homosexuality, and masculinity take the form of blogs, podcasts, and videos. Flip a page and journey with us however and wherever your heart leads.

As you navigate around our community, we hope you feel at home with us. Feel free to introduce yourself with a comment or an email. We'd love to hear from you.

Who knows? Perhaps our story will soon intersect your own.

Amid your page-turnings on our site, if you hear nothing else, please hear this: you are not alone. Even the sparrow finds a home.

Onward together,

Your Other Brothers

Huge thanks to Wesley Ayers for all his hard work on the new design!

YOBcast Episode 057: Gay Sex and Hookups

What led to your having gay sex for the first time? Can you separate the physical from the emotional in gay sex? How many times have you had gay sex, and would you consider yourself a sex addict? It's a throwback episode with three of our original YOB cofounders: Tom, Dean, and Matt. We talk with Matt about his journey and struggles with gay sex and hookups. It's a raw, courageous chronicling of his story as a pastor's kid – a story still being written to this day. We also catch up with Dean and Matt from the last year or so, including Dean's recent exploits to Canada (and questionable Canadian accent) and Matt's sarcastic sense of humor (or actual disappointment) with Tom...

Thanksgiving is the Worst! And Also Yearlong.

It's another edition of the Manly Monthly! Our recap of the month that was at Your Other Brothers and a dive into gratitude during what can be a hard holiday season. Also Tom waters his new plants and fights a wasp!
