Writes Book On Said South American Run

Jesse Archer ‘Runs’ Through South America

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 AndreasSlutty Summer.
