Move, I’m Gay, the podcast starring Francisco and Brendan (better known to listeners as Franny and Brenda) will premiere its 100th episode on Tuesday, February 22, 2022. Taped live each week from their studio in Portland, Oregon, the show has gained a national following for the comical camaraderie between its two seemingly polar-opposite hosts. While Franny dishes on the latest entertainment dirt, and maybe belts out a Top 40 hit or two, Brenda references obscure gay historical facts. There’s also a bit of politics thrown in, as the two banter, laugh and drink their way into listener’s hearts.
“I had never been a fan of podcasts,” admits Francisco. “I have only listened to a couple and most of them have been true crime, so it’s interesting to find myself hosting a comedy show. Honestly, the real reason I’m here is I broke my leg and I needed something to do with my life.”

The pair had only hung out with each other casually before starting the Move, I’m Gay podcast in February 2020. “We have very different personalities,” Brendan explains. “Francisco is up on trends and I’m slightly clueless to them, but we seem to mesh well in terms of our interaction and it's nice to have solidified our friendship through two years of weekly recordings.”
The show’s segments are a favorite among listeners. In the “Gay of the Day” segment, they highlight some of the outstanding accomplishments of individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. “We love heaping praise on the bravery of celebs like Lil' Nas X and JoJo Siwa who have come out loud and proud and others like Jeopardy! champ Amy Schneider who are raising LGBTQ+ awareness on unexpected platforms,” says Francisco.
“It’s also encouraging to be able to report on progressive legal news, especially the expanded rights being enjoyed by queer people all around the world,” Brendan adds.
But with the sugar comes the medicine. The pair regularly share their real-life trials and tribulations, like in the “Hog Hunters" episode when Brenda was forced to come to terms with the truth about the man he had been speaking with on Tinder. “I had to be convinced live during the episode that I was being catfished. All of the obvious signs were there but I simply wasn't willing to admit it.”
In their “Bless This Mess” segment, Franny and Brenda lament on the week’s most shameful events. “Some of our most heated shows from last year were centered around transphobia and the right's increasingly unhinged fight against BLM and voter's rights, and their refusal to believe that we’re in the middle of a God damned global pandemic,” says Francisco.
“In the beginning, we didn’t expect the Move, I’m Gay podcast to be so political,” he continues. “It was meant to be more about our shared love of the free Britney movement and detest for Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop with maybe a few bits about Wendy Williams burping and farting simultaneously while live on air tossed in for good measure.”
Both agree that being LGBTQ+ today is inherently political. “We realized pretty quickly that avoiding the serious topics would come across as tone deaf, and that’s the last thing we want the show to be,” Brendan explains.
The podcast has been a learning experience for the pair. “I've found that my favorite shows are when we’re our real selves, imperfections and all,” says Francisco.
Brendan agrees. “Being authentic seems to be working for us. Like the great Cheryl Lynn sang in her 1978 self-titled debut studio album, 'Got to Be Real'."
In this episode of Out & About After Dark, we talked to John. A proud bear with a dadbod since college, John has developed quite a Twitter following sharing salacious pics and vids of himself. He's even got a JustForFans. What brings a seemingly normal guy who doesn't have a classical gay porn body - but does admittedly have a big dick - to present himself so openly?
We thought those of you who listen to our Out & About After Dark podcast might be interested in this hot couple! Webcam adult models Sebas Cambiano (25) and Pablo Español (28) are making a name for themselves online at CAM4 as a married couple sharing their sexual adventures. The duo has built a lucrative line of adult content and have partnered with CAM4 to create and deliver their tantalizing brand of sensual delights.
After meeting on TikTok, Pabloysebas have adapted and reinvented their shows while continuing to grow their fanbase. In addition to mastering the illusion and fantasy of adult cruising, the couple has also become masters in the art of creating the sense of having ‘Sex In Public.’
“We have conquered the public with our cruising shows. The response we get from these cruising shows, lets us know that people really enjoy what we do. Having the ability to offer illusion and fantasy of having sex in public places is something so many of us think about. Being able to bring our fans and viewers with us is extremely unique.”
Their truly one-of-a-kind shows, where viewers get a chance to tag along on their sexy adventures, are a huge draw. And the way they interact with fans have kept them in the favorite performers category on CAM4.
“Something that our fans appreciate is the education and respect with which we treat everyone. We try to read and answer all of our messages and reward the fans who we consider extremely loyal. Our goal is to always give our followers what they want without deception.”
That willingness to interact is enhanced by the interaction between the platform and some of their favorite toys. Some of the more adventurous of you may be familiar with Lovense toys, which allow one to wear a toy out in public, or at home, and give control of the toy to someone remotely via an app. Through CAM4, they can give control of the toy to tipping audience members!
“We recently received a new Diamo by Lovense, the first wearable, external male toy ever produced. A comfortable and vibrating Bluetooth powered cock ring, the sensations we achieve from this product is absolutely amazing! We can also connect it remotely during our live cam shows so our viewers can activate the sensations with their tips. This is a new favorite toy of ours and we highly recommend it!”
Recently CAM4 did an inhouse interview with Sebas and Pablo to discuss topics from what it’s like to build a brand as a couple to navigating the creation of public content through a pandemic. They also address questions that those of you who might be thinking of camming might be interested in, like why they chose the platform they did, branding, and other business-related topics.

In this episode of Out & About After Dark, we talked to Christian Matthews and Jackson Ford. Both are sex workers and adult entertainers. Christian has been around the gay porn scene for quite a while. While Jackson is a relative newcomer, primarily performing on fan sites. We will talk to this interesting couple about how they develop their relationship in the midst of all the industry stresses and demands and how they've dealt with the common issues and problems since becoming a couple much of it during the COVID-19 pandemic. The conversation is a refreshingly clear-eyed and candid look inside the romantic lives of a couple in the industry.
Beginning around 32:17:
James: One thing that I that I've wondered about, and I haven't really asked anybody, so you guys are going to be my first to ask this question: How do you deal with people who are wanting to do something for the first time? Like, how do you negotiate that possibility that they might not be as into it as they thought
they were? I'm especially thinking about things like fisting? You know, people
might have the idea, but not have the experience.
Christian Matthews & Jackson Ford: One finger at a time! It's funny that you
kind of asked that specifically because he and I shared a client, where, you know, as we were corresponding via messages beforehand, this guy really wanted to like kind of push limits. And then once that happened to both of us are in the bedroom with him. I mean, it was ... he was very timid. Just, it didn't go there, obviously. And it wasn't that he was intimidated by us. But they have this ... a lot of clients have this fantasy that they kind of want to experience and then when it comes down to actually doing it, they're just ... They're not ready yet.
And it's like, okay! That's fine. We can engage in other things. Like, So yeah, I
mean, that just kind of happened, where it's like, okay, we're not doing this today!
I didn't want to say I take what their requests with a grain of salt. But I mean, like, we're gay men... Certain things are going to turn us on. The more we talk, the more turned on we're going to get, right. Oh, yeah, I want to do this. I
want to do that. And I'm so horny, and I can't wait to experience this. And I usually take what they're saying and cut in half. And that's what they're
going to want to do.
And I always tell people, if it's a first timer—you know, especially with the
straight guys, if they're with a gay guy for the first time—I don't have any restrictions. We can do as much as you want, as little as you want. If you want to sit here and just talk we can! If you want to fuck, if you want to go to the n-th extreme we can! I care more about them having a good time.
