36. One Glorious Anthem. [Derek Bolt.]

Derek Bolt is an architect, bodybuilder, and gay porn star based in Washington, D.C. He’s the winner of the heavyweight class at the 2018 NPC MaxMuscle Mid-Atlantic open bodybuilding competition, and he will be competing at the 2019 NPC Nationals at the end of July. 

Derek and Michael talk about how taekwondo is better than Boy Scouts, the cruelty and casual homophobia of children, non-monogamous relationships, bodybuilding, and loneliness. Derek is also one of Michael's best friends, and they nerd out about common interests and explain how they met.
