Why post Jason Momoa ax throwing?
Just because we can.

Pink – Raise your Glass – 2010
Growing up in the 1960s and 1970s I remember a time where what I felt and who I was attracted to was a secret. I learned early that I had a secret and a secret it would remain.
Therefore today when I run across a video such as this one in which a famous young gay man lives behind his secret I can empathize.
Don’t get me wrong, I wish Elton and others had been out and able to lead thus showing me that I was ok. However, I understand. I understand now that for them the safety of the curtain allowed them to live two lives. One life in front of the curtain out on stage and another in secret behind it. Society actually demanded the separation.
Stars of the past who tried to live their truth found their careers ruined and were ostracized, rejected into oblivion.
Today Elton is able to live as an out gay man. He is married and has two children. After all those years in hiding, today he can live as an example. Unfortunately Billy Haines never made it to see the day where his lifelong relationship would be validated much less that he could live and work as an out gay man.
What Billy Haines chose isn’t lost on me though. He chose to live his truth and to live as an out gay man, but it lost him his career. In his own way he blazed a trail by refusing to live a double life, or in other words he refused to live a lie.
Elton chose to live the lie until eventually his truth started to be too obvious, yet fortunately for him the times had changed to acceptance. But I don’t fault Elton. He had much to contribute, and contribute he did through his work and art. He was fortunate that thankfully times finally changed.
Societal “norms” keep people from fully expressing and living their truths.
Isn’t it time we appreciate differences and continue to challenge societal norms? Isn’t it time we actually question gender stereotypes? Isn’t it possible that the actual organ isn’t the actual sex? Isn’t it possible that sex, or sexuality, doesn’t even fucking matter?
Peppermint & Cazwell’s video Blend has appeared here before. It’s worth a re-post.
If we all do not understand, empathize, love, accept, support, forgive and STAND UP for each other then who will?
Let’s celebrate each other. Let’s celebrate life.
Taylor Swift – You Need To Calm Down
Just in time for Pride 2019 …
Star Studded Shade = Fabulousness!
Today’s beard is a video beard…
Jason Momoa tonight on SNL! Squeee!
Best Hanukkah present ever!
Yesterday Fearsome and I had the privilege and honor to meet and talk to television groundbreaking inspiration Nichelle Nichols, AKA Lt. Uhura of Star Trek.
Turned into a pull
And another pull
Then another tug
By now we are both laughing hysterically as is her assistant
Another pull and more laughter
A Tug and then
Her other hand begins to rise
A Vulcan Salute with a tug
Then a hug
Followed by a final Vulcan Salute
She adored Fearsome and wouldn’t let go of him. I adored her. A beautiful, beautiful woman.
As seen in my hand in the photos:
A priceless moment.

Thank you, you will be missed.
No Fearsome didn’t run into them last year but wished he had. This gives a feel of the fabulousness that is The Con.
Nor did I see him this year, however if you watch closely a handsome Beard of the Day from just a couple days ago walks right past him, very near the end.
