About Tom + Lorenzo

Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez have been a couple for a couple of decades and married for half of one. In 2006, they took their backgrounds in film, music, fashion and advertising, and launched a gay-themed reality television blog called “Project RunGay,” which brought them a level of attention and acclaim that might have turned them quite obnoxious had they not been so busy turning that initial outburst of interest into a long-term media and publishing plan. Fifteen years later, their eponymous web site Tom & Lorenzo enjoys a readership in the millions, a podcast listened to by tens of thousands every week, two books, a newsletter, and a social media presence that has all combined to successfully recast them from fan bloggers to legitimate fashion and cultural critics. They are members of GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, and Tomatometer-approved film and television critics for Rotten Tomatoes.
