Hey guys! Candace here, The Sword’s new spring intern. I’m reporting live from the 2013 Phoenix Forum!
First of all, I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “What is a woman doing interning on a gay porn blog?” Well, might I remind you that I’m not the first woman to intern here at The Sword! Many of you will undoubtedly remember Chelsea, The Sword’s last female intern who died tragically during childbirth. And in case you couldn’t tell from my photo on the left, Chelsea was my twin sister.
Since Chelsea’s passing earlier this year, I’ve been reevaluating my own life as a single college student making her way in the world while at the same time trying to discover what I can do to keep my late sister’s legacy alive. And then one day it hit me. Why not carry on the brave, insightful, and sexy work that Chelsea started here?
Chelsea loved what she did on The Sword, and I can’t think of any greater tribute than to extend her influence on The Sword and in gay porn by blogging in her honor, and by focusing on all of her favorite stars, themes, studios, and trends. I know I’m not Chelsea (I’m Candace!), but I am her identical twin sister. And that makes us practically the same person!
Anyways, I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me at the Phoenix Forum here in Arizona. In case you didn’t know, the Phoenix Forum is an annual business convention for porn companies, affiliates, bloggers, models, and other industry professionals. The whole thing is a predominantly straight event (I’m not sure why they sent me?) and everyone seems really drunk or high pretty much all the time, but I’ll try to get you some pics of the gay porn stars who let me take their picture. I’ve already spotted Cody Cummings and Jake Cruz, so don’t worry boys. Candy’s got ya covered!!
Check out some of the pics I’ve taken so far below. Hope you like!!!
Candace (but my friends call me Candy ;)
