Yup. I'm kind of slow, I guess. It took me till now to process my thoughts regarding the latest betrayal by the Democratic party.
Once again they betrayed the LGBTQ Community, along with their lap dogs in the Human Rights Campaign, through their absolute la… Read full post »
Why? Why the hate? We haven’t done anything to you! You aren’t even willing to try to get to know us. Why?

as I live in fear
of intertwined silhouettes.

He took our queer money and he took our queer votes. In return, we took his promise of change. He got elected with our votes and money, but he hasn’t kept ANY of his promises to the LGBTQ Community.
NOW, he makes a speech to the HRC faithful, who… Read full post »
My love’s eyes sparkled like drops of icy water
Tumbling into the clear pool of her love
Like the first buds of spring, my heart responded
My adoration for her grew just as quickly
Warmed by the joy of my love’s sunny smile
I sense the heat of… Read full post »
Busting the Marriage Monopoly
Gay marriage is a pretty hot topic in a household that consists of two lesbians, who enjoy a long term monogamous commitment, and the children they have created and nurtured together.
Money and business is another hot t… Read full post »

Like a princess who kissed frogs,
just because she found them beautiful;
my life is for few.
As a square peg in a world of rounds;
the rare fit is that much sweeter.
Fewer chances; greater risks.
