I Knew I Liked Girls In the 5th Grade

When I came out to my mother, I was 11 years old. Unlike the commonness of that now, I did it when there were neither many positive images of gay or lesbian people, if any, nor much information on how to deal with your child coming to terms with sexuality at such a young age. Add to that being raised in a household where my parents were Baptist Bible belt believing Christians? You’d think it’d be a recipe for disaster and turmoil....more

Goodbye to Cousin X

I wish people would think about who they might hurt when they let loose their bigoted, repressive, cutting words on the world of Facebook. Real people read these words. Real people react with their real feelings. Their hurt feelings. Their feelings of despair. This goes out to all of my LGBTQ friends. I'm sorry for some of the shit you endure here. I'm sorry for some of the shit we all have to see here....more

Survival Mode or "Can I please catch a break?"

I have not written a blog post in over a year. I actually destroyed me personal blog just because It was so outdated and pointless. Today in twitter, I saw an interesting article from this page and remembered my old posts over here.Hi BlogHer!! It's been a while. Since we used to be such good friends, let me update you on some things. First and foremost: life sucks. I cannot think of one thing that has gotten better since I last was here. I actually feel like I am in some sort of retrogression in which I am moving backwards instead of forward....more

I'm Coming Out, Again, After Getting a Divorce

My first 'coming out' was around 1992.It happened in an era when spotting a friend at a gay club meant stammered excuses and letting an HIV-positive friend sip from your drink meant hearing loud gasps.So why, in 2015, am I coming out again? The landscape has changed since 1992. We now have marriage equality in the majority of states and we have had a transgender woman, Laverne Cox, on the cover of TIME magazine....more

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Gay Fish

A few years ago, I sauntered into the giant pet mega store in Union Square, in hopes to find an adorable new beta fish to adopt. As a Pisces I have found that watching fish swim is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable things for me to do (aside from eating them in sushi). As I made my way down aisle 6B, over fifty tiny circular containers filled with water came into view....more
