Out Out columnist Jesse Archer recently struck out to check out South America’s out scene. The result? You Can Run: Gay, Glam and Gritty Travels in South American: a chronicle of queer South America and Archer’s adventures therein, including a particularly sensual run in with a banana.
Guess we know where the titular “gritty” comes from…
To celebrate the Haworth Press release, Archer recently sat down with fellow homo-journo Tony Peregrin for a little heart-to-heart. In addition to getting some more info on that sure-to-be infamous fruit fling, Archer offers insight on how he kept from going broke:
I went with $4K and it was my goal to stay as long as I could, as far as that money would get me. I was forced to be a creative adventurer, sleeping in ditches and cutting worms out of my foot. I also worked as a waiter in Buenos Aires for a while and once I taught English to a bunch of old gay men. I write about that in a chapter called “A Gay Old Time.” I taught those old gay men some great gay vocab, words like ’horsecock,’ ’pearl necklace’ and ’twinkie!’
That Archer, he’s such a good Samaritan.
Hopefully Archer won’t be struggling for long. The 33-year old stunner stars in – and helped write – The Four-Letter Word, a follow-up to his and Casper Andreas‘ Slutty Summer.
