Dwayne Green
pharmacy technician | Southwest Philadelphia
"The freedom to pursue alternate health approaches, such as herbology, homeopathic medicine and dietary adjustments. I really appreciate all the natural-food stores.

What LGBT person would you like to be stranded with on a deserted island?

Carmelo Galati
university professor | Gayborhood
"Anderson Cooper. He's very attractive, but that's not the main reason. He has a very large intellectual capacity. He's such a fascinating person, I'd forget all about the need to be rescued. And he's so smart, he'd probably figure out a way to get both of us off the island!"
