In April 2011 I began chronicling my life when I came out as a gay 25 year-old man. Since then, I’ve shared some of my most intimate stories with you. Stories about love and heartbreak. Stories about one-night-stands and STDs. I’ve recounted my coming out to my family and friends and so many more.
I began using One Gay At A Time as an outlet to share my feelings. I had no idea it would blossom into an entire community of followers who shared their stories and feelings as well. That has become one of my proudest accomplishments. At its peak, One Gay At A Time drew in over 1,700 visitors in one day. While I was flattered that many people cared about what I had to say, I realized it was simply because others shared such a similar story to mine.
I hope I have been able to help my readers get through their issues knowing they were not alone, but I am no longer able to keep up with the blog. My private life has grown rather busy as you can tell from my lack of posts. I do not think myself so important that readers are still waiting on the edge of their seats after so long. I do however realize I need to be realistic and fair by telling you not to expect posts to continue.
If you are coming to this blog for the first time today, I encourage you to start from the beginning. There is a plethora of content I hope you can learn from, or at the very least, will be entertained by.
I do hope to be able to continue to use this platform in the future when my schedule allows for it, but until then I have to say so long.
I will be checking my emails as usual, so if you’d like to reach out to me directly, I welcome your emails, and I will respond in a timely fashion.
Thank you for your time and dedication.
Celebrating and remembering the life of Martin Luther King Jr.
This man is celebrating by emancipating himself from his pants.
Hope you enjoyed the Inauguration Ceremonies as well!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 170,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 3 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!
Click here to see the complete report. It’s kinda fascinating…
Now on to 2013!!!
Oh wait. It’s not that kind of black…?
Today I am thankful for many things.
I am thankful I am a gay man who is comfortable in his own skin.
I am thankful to have a man in my life – The love of my life, even if it isn’t always smooth sailing.
I am thankful for all my readers, especially the dedicated ones who offer support and comments.
I truly love these! Keep em’ comin’!
I am thankful for all my friends and family and the support they give me on a daily basis.
I’d be nowhere without them.
I am thankful to be alive. Thankful every day when my eyes open and breath life in for one more day.
And lastly, I am thankful for Thanksgiving cards like these!!
I had to share this funny satire of what could happen if gay marriage continues to be stifled. Click the link below the pictures.
Have you ever gotten into a debate or worse argument in which you felt the need to defend homosexuality? Ever feel the need to legitimize your love to someone else just because it doesn’t match your definition of love?
What does it mean when people call same-sex relations “unnatural,” and why should that judgment matter anyway? Philosopher John Corvino takes apart this claim, demonstrating that, in the usual cases, it’s empty rhetorical flourish. The argument that homosexuality is “unnatural” has no validation nor truth. It’s simply a go-to phrase homophobes use to legitimize their belief that it is wrong.
Dr. John Corvino, also known as the “Gay Moralist,” is a writer, speaker, and philosophy professor at Wayne State University in Detroit. He is the co-author, with Maggie Gallagher, of the book Debating Same-Sex Marriage. Find the book here: http://amzn.com/0199756317
I encourage you to watch the video below. It’s brilliant. So, the next time you find you’re preaching to others telling them their love is wrong, of if you find yourself back into the corner defending your love for another, consider some of John’s points.
One of my good friends came across a video and shared it with me, and I had to share it with you.
It is incredibly touching not only because of the story being told, but also the bravery of a company to plant a flag in the ground. Too many companies shy away from the controversy over gay marriage, and I would like to applaud Expedia for their courage and dauntlessness to share this story with the world. They are taking great risk by attaching themselves to such controversial subject matter, but in a world where Chick-Fil-A receives record turnout for denouncing gay marriage, maybe Expedia will gain favor among the masses. I encourage you to show your support of companies who further the “agenda” of equal rights for all.
So, please eat all the Oreos you can stomach and then run them off in your Nikes. Search Google on your T-Mobile phone for a JC Penny to buy Levi’s jeans. Book a reservation for a Zagat rated restaurant, Hilton hotel and United flight on a Boeing plane through Expedia. If we show our support, the list of same-sex marriage supporters will only grow.
Enough commercialism — Enjoy this heart-warming story of a father coming to terms with his daughter’s wedding to another woman…
Here is a list I found on Wikipedia of companies who support same-sex marriage:
Ben & Jerry’s
Best Buy - Geek Squad
The Coca-Cola Company
Gap - Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime
Google - Motorola Mobility, YouTube, Zagat
The Home Depot
Procter and Gamble
Sears - Land’s End
State Farm Insurance
The Walt Disney Company - ABC, ESPN, Pixar, Marvel, Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, The Muppets
Happy Labor Day everyone! Hope you have the day off and find something amazing
to do with your day! Find someone special to do some serious day seizing!
Summer may be ending, but the fun’s just beginning!
Soon, it will be time to snuggle up with that special someone on the couch with a warm blanket…
One Gay at a Time is taking a short break. I am going on vacation and will not have access to internet (a curse and a blessing all in one). I will return on Labor Day. I look forward to bringing you more stories in September. Get off the computer and enjoy what remains of August! That’s an order!
