About The Author

Thomas Mark Zuniga

Chronic wanderer and melancholic delighter in the what-comes-next. I'm the cofounder and editor for YOB, and I also host our bimonthly podcast: the YOBcast. I've written a couple books and first started fleshing out my story of faith and same-sex attraction years ago under the Xanga username "Two Beckonings." I'm an INFJ, Enneagram Type 4, and my favorite place is the one where coffee and vulnerability meet. Feel free to reach out if we've yet to connect; maybe it was ever ago planned that we one day would?

I didn’t have many go-to friends, and I spent mindless hours mired in online promiscuity. And then I came across a video. Or perhaps the video came across me? It’s called “Who You Are: A Message to All Men.” I’m […]

My Last Wet Dream
