A very brief look into the start of the Gay Liberation movement. Something we feel is very important to know, remember, reflect on and refresh in our mind.

Happy Pride Month Y’all!
I am an out gay man and I believe that this may well be one of the more important Pride celebrations in our community’s history. I will be visible this month and I will support my LGBTQ family as well as supporting all who support us. This is about love, life, respect and our freedom to be who we actually are.
I kick off the month with one of my favorite tunes. We are here, we are queer and let’s dance!
Village People – San Fransisco (You Got Me) – 1978
Memorial Day Weekend Dance Party!
In honor of our Warrior Queen Anne Marie in Philly, let’s have a Dance Party!
Klymaxx – Meeting In The Ladies Room – 1984
Vanity 6 – Nasty Girl – 1982
Sheila E. – The Glamorous Life – 1984
It’s been two years since I received that call and my heart sank. Today I remember the treasured moments I was blessed to spend with my dear blogger friend and how she lived her life to the fullest.
Anne Marie…you inspire me, I miss you and I love you. I still smile when I think of you. XO
When this video showed up in my YouTube feed yesterday evening I’ll have to say that, as a sober man living in California, the song’s title intrigued me enough to click play.
Wow, what a nice surprise this was.
I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of SW Virginia in the 1960s & 70s and at family reunions bluegrass music was the staple. As a child I enjoyed the bluegrass but didn’t really appreciate it. As an adult I’ve found not only is bluegrass nostalgic but it is a beautiful art form full of life and feeling. I can honestly say that I now appreciate and enjoy it …as long as it’s good. This is good, really good.
I hadn’t heard of Billy Strings before, so I did Google him to learn more. Seems he’s been around a little while and has some cred under his belt, as well as a like minded political view that makes me appreciate him even more.
Now to say this song is about a “strict” sobriety as I live it would be a false statement. However I so deeply appreciate the story it shares and find it to be a beautiful work of art that I’m grateful I found. I’ll be checking out much more of Billy String’s music in the future.

Thank you Trae
What he speaks of is just the tip of the coming iceberg. Which is the exact reason that we need to vote and we need to have conversations with those we love about the consequences of voting, not voting and to whom we vote for. Education is the only way out of this.
Thank you Trae, we love you for what you do.
Silly Love Songs
Still my favorite love song of all time…

It all starts at sundown this evening. Depending on where you are reading this, it may have already begun.
Whether you celebrate Hanukkah or not, may yours be joyful and bring you peace. To me, as a Goy myself, the holiday represents perseverance, miracles, light and freedom. I therefore I celebrate it in my own Goyish way.
