All right Gays. Time For Some Self – Reflection.

IN my early twenties I worked in a restaurant where I was no stranger to another male  coworker grabbing or slapping my ass.  At the time I thought nothing of it, in fact I enjoyed it. What’s wrong with a little pick me up shared by a few men of the ever-exclusive gay club? Today,…

Finding North Again. 2016.

Many of us are walking around lost. Like we’ve been in the woods our whole lives, and the one thing guiding us all, has shattered. We want to do something. We want to create action. We want to change things. But that’s difficult when the ground below us has disintegrated. For every action there is…

Hillary: You’ve Won. Lets Begin the Healing.

Dear Hillary, Congratulations. After being introduced to the world 24 years ago, as a fighter for children’s and woman’s rights, your road to the White House is short and inevitable.

#NeverHillary or #Never4now

June 2, 2016 It’s an odd political season. The only one I’ve ever seen where two faithful democrats needed to be separated at the kitchen table. Politics are passionate. As they should be. You’re not just talking about your own taxes being raised, you’re discussing the future of millions. The aisle used to be the line…

The Less of Two Evils

I’m hearing that a lot lately. No. I’ve heard it my whole life. “The less of two evils.” As if we have to choose. “You have to choose, if you don’t than the other side will win.” What other side? Who? Why? “Have to” That’s a lot. I don’t have to do anything. But you…
