Given the ongoing coverage of the shooting in Orlando, it is going to be hard to come up with a new angle. So I can just share a personal one. I am disheartened, but what has happened. I look back on my history, the gay history, and see massacres stretching back. So today we find […]

Where It All Began: “The X-Files”

Day 3: Michigan Reunion

Something I have always said, friends are my reset button. When you need to be true to yourself and think about all the decisions that you have made, nothing is better than a weekend with people who know you best.
