Julie Bindel gets it right in Straight Expectations


Within reading the first paragraph, I had to reblog this. Frankly, I could not agree more with Ms. Bindel.

The World Continues to Change, Part IV: Thank You, Towleroad!


A few years ago, I volunteered, then worked for a non-profit organization in my area.

When I first volunteered, the executive director was a fellow Gay Man.  Two executive directors later, I was hired by the organization, and the executive director who was instrumental in my being hired, was also a fellow Gay Man.

That second executive director, also introduced me to my very first Gay-themed blog, “Towleroad: A Site with Homosexual Tendencies.”

I have visited this blog, from time to time, over the years.

And recently, I was pleasantly surprised (actually, downright delighted!) to find the following post:

Several years ago, I recall having a conversation with a fellow professional Lightworker, who was also a professional actor, at that time.  He told me that there was no way that he would come out of the closet, because it would damage his budding acting career.

Interestingly enough, that same year, the current and great Sir Ian McKellen came out of the closet..

Based on what I have seen on television these past two years, and based on what I have received, Intuitively, from the Universe, it looks like this world is moving in the direction of greater acceptance.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower, “Opinionated Man.”  What a GREAT screen name, and blog name!

May you receive great insight, and great PRIDE from following “This Gay Man’s Life…”  And thank you for being one more of an ever-increasing number of straight allies.

And to those of you already following or reading “This Gay Man’s Life…”  Thank you for honoring who you are and what you do, and thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do, too.

Happy New Year!LIVEbanner

 

2014 in review


It looks like tonight is the night for reblogging!

This Is Who I AM

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

New Year Resolutions


I AM big on following Divine Guidance. And mine said to reblog this post on my other WordPress Blog. And so I have.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all of you!

This Is Who I AM

In exactly four days, 2015, “The Year of Taking it to the Next Level” shall begin.

Before I get to the main part of this blog post, I would like to point out that there are many different kinds of “New Years.”  After all, January 1 marks the beginning of the new calendar year.

For example, in many Magickal Traditions, Samhain (correctly pronounced SOW-when, and more commonly known as Halloween), represents the Witch’s New Year.

The New Year, in Western Astrology, begins on the first day of the Sun’s Transit in Aries, the First Sign of the Zodiac, and, appropriately, the Sign of New Beginnings.  Next year, that shall be on Friday, March 20, 2015.  Interestingly enough, that is also the date of the New Moon in Aries, further deepening those Energies of New Beginnings.

The Jewish New Year, also known as Rosh Hashanah, was on Thursday, September 25…

Guess what?


I must admit, I rarely watch BuzzFeed videos, and I rarely read BuzzFeed posts.

However, this time around, a fellow Gay Man let me know about this one.

And here you go:

Enjoy, and be enlightened.  Thank you.

Here is to 2015, “The Year of Taking it to the Next Level.”  May network television take representing LGBT people, more accurately, to the next level.buzzfeedlogo

‘The ‘transgender Armageddon.’


As a way of being more inclusive of Transgender folks on, “this Gay Man’s LIfe…” I AM reblogging this post.

Humanizing The Vacuum

Tomorrow the Miami-Dade County Commission will try to pass for the second time what Broward did in 1988: a human rights ordinance prohibiting discrimination in housing, public accommodations, and employment for the transgendered.

Opponents see danger:

“Criminals look for easy opportunities,” said Verdugo, who questioned the need for the law at all. He cited several cases outside of Florida, including one of a registered sex offender in Oregon who was arrested after dressing as a woman, entering a locker room in a women’s community center and changing clothes near children.

Noble — thinking of the children! You don’t suppose he projects a particular animus towards non-straights, no?

Beyond public safety, Armesto said he considers homosexuality “biologically aberrant,” and Miami-Dade should not act like other municipalities that “have buckled under and allowed their charters to be turned into a billboard for an ideological statement.”

Oh.

Here’s where matters stood last month
