One of my very first posts on “This Gay Man’s Life…” was “The World Is Definitely Changing…”
In it, I mention MK Nobilette, who was on Season XIII of American Idol. I mentioned her because, she told the judges (Harry Connick, Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban), that she is Gay, and that she feels that the world is changing, and that the American public is more receptive to an openly Gay contestant.
Her words continue to echo throughout the United States of America, and throughout the world.
This week, I watched Season Eleven, Episode 14 of So You Think You Can Dance, and at one point during the program, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, an openly Gay actor who portrays and openly Gay character on Modern Family, praised contestant Ricky Ubeda, by saying “You’re Ricky/You’re so great/If you were older/we could date!”
In addition, the Dallas Cowboys signs openly Gay Male American football player, Michael Sam, which is quite amazing in so many ways.
Now more than ever, the world is beginning to recognize that Gay Men, Lesbians, Bisexuals, and Transgendered people are people.
Personally, I AM a member of various communities.
I AM a Gay Man (as well as a “bear”), a Cuban man, a professional Psychic and Lightworker, a Witch, and more. And I AM Re-Minded how every one of these communities have been ostracized, received scorn, prejudice, bigotry, rejection, and more.
However, now more than ever these communities are also receiving acceptance, admiration, and more.
