Gay Man Visits 30 Cities for 30 Dates With 30 Men

30 Dates With 30 Men in 30 Cities“I did find something special… I found 33 amazing individuals who were willing to take a chance on love and life. A shout out to all of them.” -Kevin Richberg

I said one of the purposes in founding SFGN was to illuminate gay lives. Today we shine the light on an intriguing young man who has engaged unique odysseys in his journey on this Earth. His latest adventure perhaps was even bolder than his hiking of Mount Kilimanjaro, bull shark diving in the Fiji Islands, or bathing in a mud volcano in Columbia. This young self-motivated gay adventurer, who embraces life so enthusiastically, entered on the most feared journey of all: he embarked on an amazing journey into the heart and soul of gay life-dating.

Online, Kevin Richberg, who graduated with a degree in Marine Biology from MIT, after finishing school in Southern California, announced that he was going to criss-cross America in search of thirty dates with thirty different men in thirty different cities. Call it speed dating raised to a higher power.

Using his skills as a self-sustaining journalist, he was going to write and blog about his dates and his experiences – and he did, from Pensacola to Spokane. With updates on advocate.com, Twitter, his website, and a Facebook page, Kevin recorded his transcontinental dating escapades, which culminated with his last date, on October 31, in Beijing, China, where he confides online, that “it did not go well.” Still this is a journey worth sharing.
