Cypher Avenue is a direct response to the lack of a single website/podcast on the Internet catering to gay/bisexual men that love hip hop, pop culture, video games, sci-fi and mature and open minded conversations. Topics ranging from sex, sports, movies, new tech, science, fashion, comic books, politics, working out, hip hop, booze, television, cars, the outdoors, geek stuff, dating, and relationships; you name it, we have it. Unique viewpoints shared by an ever growing and diverse community who engage in conversation on a vast array of subjects. Take all of this; add some bravado, a twisted sense of humor and some passionate, head strong men and you have pure thought-provoking enjoyment…or as we like to call it “dialogue and discourse on the rocks!”

These guys are funny.
They discriminate a bit on fem guys, but overall, they are a fun listen. They sound cute too. lol
