By the light of day, Richard Read plays the part of a mild-mannered fundraiser, but before and after the 9-to-5 grind, he’s a voracious consumer of news, information, and vacuous data on the latest hot-to-trot reality show “celebs”. Name a blog devoted to popular culture, LGBT issues, science, technology, or transportation, and chances are good that he’s a subscriber.
Richard is an avid blogger and writes regularly about car culture for Motor Authority, The Car Connection, Green Car Reports, and Gaywheels. Richard has also penned more than his share of not-entirely-safe-for-work articles for Gawker, Lurid Digs, and other LGBT sites. And in his spare time (yes, he occasionally has spare time), he writes plays for a New Orleans-based theatre ensemble Running With Scissors and posts news and musings on his own site, Sturtle.
