Month: August 2015

An Update on a Previously Scheduled Post…

Previously, I had written a post in which I stated that I wanted to create a blog post featuring the titles of autographed books that I have.  That is, to say, listing the books that I own autographed by the authors who wrote them.

However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it might be better simply to create a page for it.  Besides, “This Gay Man’s Life…” needs additional pages.

Appropriately, the page shall be entitled “Autographed Books,” and shall become an ongoing page.

For example, exactly seven days ago, on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, I returned to the Bureau (also known as the Bureau of General Services–Queer Division) to attend an event featuring Richard Stevenson (author or the “Donald Strachey Mystery” Series) and Mark Zubro (author of the “Mike King Mystery” Series, as well as the “Alien Danger Series”).

Now, if the forthcoming “Autographed Books” page existed before last Wednesday, August 5, 2015, then I would have added the books I purchased written by Mr. Stevenson and Mr. Zubro to said page.

Given my schedule for the rest of the year, my intention is to have this new page up before Wednesday, September 30, 2015, if not sooner.

Nonetheless, as soon as it is up, I shall happily let all of you know.

For now, thank you for honoring who you are and what you do, and for letting your Gay Light SHINE!action-list-photo

Sharing a beautiful post, and more…

As many of you know, this past year or so, I have become more comfortable with referring to myself as a “bear.”

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with some of the terms Gay Men have for each other, a “bear” is a man who is hairy and husky.  I AM hairy, and husky, so there.  Bear (smile).

In addition, there are different kinds of bears.  For example, a black bear is a hairy and husky man who is black or of African descent.  A brown bear is a hairy and husky man who is either Latino, Hispanic, Indian (as in, from India, as opposed to Native American/First Nation), etc.

A panda bear is a hairy and husky man who is also Asian (yes, they do exist).

And so, with that, I share this post from this super beautiful bear, Mr. Freddy Freeman.

Freddy Freeman is a singer/songwriter, Spiritual bear, and so much more.  I have had the pleasure of meeting him, as well as seeing him perform with his beautiful and multi-talented husband (or, to stick to the parlance, husbear), as well as THE Rev. Yolanda.

And with that, here is the post:

And now, I wish all of you a beautiful day, a wonderful week, and a wondrous weekend, and remember to let your GAY Light shine!
