Richard Read

I’ve written about LGBT issues, videogames, travel, theatre, pop culture, technology, sex, and other topics for Gawker, Fodor's, Nightcharm, and many points in-between.

Currently, much of my writing is focused on cars. (It’s a long story.) I publish daily articles about the auto industry at High Gear Media’s family of websites, and I’m the editor of Gaywheels, a website devoted to LGBT car fans, I’m also the co-author of The French Quarter Drinking Companion, a field guide to some of New Orleans best watering holes.

Though born in Mississippi, I’ve spent most of my life in New Orleans, which is, as luck would have it, the hometown of my biological mom. (Another a long story.) I live there with my partners, numerous hounds, many wonderful friends, and a very well-stocked bar.
