WINNER: Afterglow tickets

Michael G. Labarbera is the winner of our contest. Here is his winning submission:

“As the play centers on Gay male relationships I will confine my comments to that specific situation. For centuries, Gay men were denied any right to what was considered a ‘normal’ relationship by mainstream society so we had to invent what worked for us. Even though Gay men should have the right to a traditional relationship, each couple must have the right to create the relationship parameters that work for them. As long as none of the parties involved are hurting anyone else, or each other, it should not matter. A successful and loving open relationship is far better that a supposed monogamous relationship that is destroyed by lies and cheating. We should be allowed to celebrate how we are different from the mainstream as well as how we are the same.”

WEHOville is proud to offer our readers a chance to see the sexy and thought-provoking play ‘Afterglow,’ now making its West Coast debut run at the Hudson Theater in Hollywood.

AFTERGLOW, the international hit sensation, is a raw, one-act play exploring the emotional, intellectual, and physical connections between three men and the broader implications within their relationships. Performances run Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through June 19.

To enter to win a pair of tickets to the show, tell us what you think about open relationships in a comment below. A winner will be selected at random from the comments. Good luck!

I don’t see how this can work in the long term, but I don’t judge others if this makes them happy.

It seems to me we’re looking at this backwards. Why are we talking about relationships being open rather than relationships being closed? A relationship in which two men, married or not, have physical contact with others does not necessarily diminish the commitment they have for each other. We didn’t fight for same-sex marriage in order to restrict relationships but to allow those who wish to have the same rights and privileges as opposite sex couples.

Agreed. And I saw this play and it is highly recommended for the terrific staging and light and sound production as well as for the acting.

I can’t stand guys on grindr and other hookup apps looking for sex while their relationship status is “married.” Why did we fight so hard for gay marriage just for them to ignore their legal status because they are horny. I hate catholicism but didn’t they say “do not commit adultery?” My dad did after 20 years of marriage. Why shouldn’t we hold Gay “couples” to the same standard? “We only play together” is one thing. On Grindr all day while “legally married” is another.

How about we just don’t judge how people live their lives? If a couple wants to be open, why do you care?
