Still Processing…


Unless you have been avoiding the Internet for the last two days, and/or do not know anyone who is a member of the LGBTQIA communities, you may not have heard that now, in the United States of America, Gay Marriage is legally allowable.

In other words, Gay Men and Lesbians can now legally get married and, according to the Supreme Court, is it OK for us to do that.

I can honestly say I never thought this day would come.

Again, still processing.

Am I happy about this decision?  Why yes, I AM happy about this decision.

And, I would be much happier if there were people who were not assaulted because they are either Gay Men, Lesbians, Transgendered, black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, etc., but I digress.

I look forward to the next few days and fully processing and accepting what happened.

And if you are wondering, thoughts of getting married right now are the furthest thing from my Mind.  Those of you who know me know I do not do things spontaneously.

Before I close, let me acknowledge my newest blog follower, “gooddixx22.”  Thank you for honoring who you are and what you do.  May following “This Gay Man’s Life…” bring you great insight and great PRIDE.

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

Adam and Steve…


I have been hearing homophobes say,”It’s Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve” for more than two decades now.

I can honestly say, the homophobes need new material.

That line is tired, old, lame, and busted.  In addition, it is every other synonym for tired, old, lame, and busted, too.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog followers.

Yes, Lesbians, my fellow Gay Men, Transgendered folks, Bisexuals, and our straight allies: this is going to be a short and sweet one today.

As to my new blog followers, they are: “Man of many thoughts,” and “agronsh.”  Thank you, both, very much for honoring who you are and what you do.  May you experience greater insights, and greater PRIDE from following “This Gay Man’s Life…”

And to those of you already following or reading my blog, thank you for all you do for so many, and for honoring who I AM and what I do, too.

Well, given that this motion picture was released in August, 2005, perhaps it is "Adam & Steve," after all!

NaBloPoMo, Day 12: Open Relationships…


As I have stated in previous posts, as a Gay Man, there may be some posts that I write from “This Gay Man’s” perspective.

And, given my commitment to write one blog post a day for both of my WordPress Blogs, this is one of those kinds of posts.

There is a great deal of division regarding open relationships in the Gay Male community.  I think some of it has to do with so many Gay Men and Lesbians fighting for marriage equality, and they want to appear more acceptable.

However, let us look at our modern history.  The drag queens and the leather daddies were the ones that were at the forefront of the Stonewall Riots.

How much, as Gay Men (and as LGBTQ people) do we feel we need to do to be accepted?  How much do we want to do?

For many years, my position has been “live and let live.”  If there are, say, three men that are in a happy romantic and sexual relationship, and they are helping each other, and they are nurturing each other, then more power to the three of them.

Also, on a personal level, I AM open to being in an open relationship, as well as to a polyamorous relationship.  In fact, there is a book that I AM long overdue to purchase.  It is entitled Pagan Polyamory: Becoming a Tribe of Hearts, by Raven Kaldera (Copyright 2005, Llewellyn Worldwide, Woodbury, Minnesota).

So, how do you feel about open relationships?
