Florida with a cool, crisp edge.

The Tampa Bay Area sits on the west coast of Florida, including Hillsborough and Pinellas counties and the cities of Tampa, Saint Petersburg, and Clearwater. Its population is over three million and continues to grow. Spirit, JetBlue, Delta, Southwest, and other airlines offer nonstop service for the two-hour flight, with competitive prices. The sunny and warm city of Tampa has a beautiful downtown that’s filled with hotels, high-rises, and historic old quarters, such as Ybor City and Old Hyde Park. Check out the famous tourist attractions – and of course its thriving gay scene.

Time to check in with you on my online dating adventures! Well, I’ve been a paid member of a particular mainstream (vs. LGBT or lesbian-only) online dating site for almost six months now and I’m getting ready to cut bait with them when the subscription ends later this month. I like this site’s interface but am curious to see what else is out there.

Hard headline, so let me make it more clear.

Whoever is in charge of the Chicago Dyke March has their heads up their asses. If you’ve read this column before, you’ve never read language like that from me before, but I’ll let you judge. Here are the facts:

From fighting AIDS with ACT UP in New York  and helping found Lesbian Avengers– Anne-christine d’Adesky’s new memoir casts fresh light on epic battles

Anne-christine d’Adesky got arrested, accidentally, long before it happened on purpose during AIDS protests. The Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist was covering civil disobedience at a nuclear facility in 1982 when she was approached by a suspicious policeman. Despite assuring him that she was covering the demonstration for Ms. magazine, the officer arrested her anyway.

It seems
Like to the left and to the right
We are falling
Like the leaves in autumn
The brainwashed and fearful
Deride our existence

Pointing it Out

Pointing it Out

Seventy-eight. 80. 84. These are the ages of three of the liberal Supreme Court justices about whom speculation on possible retirement dates swarm daily – Justices Breyer, Kennedy, and Ginsburg. As the age scale tips against them (and Kennedy drops loaded retirement hints) all we can do is watch and anguish over when and how the major advancements and institutional progress that have been won for our community will be overturned and erased, one by one. Yes, the spector of another three-and-a-half years with Trump and/or Pence in the Oval Office looms larger and more threatening by the hour.

There once were two men stranded in a little wooden boat. For many days they coasted in what seemed to be the direction of land and safety. One day the wind was particularly unforgiving, and it rocked the ocean so fiercely that one of the men fell overboard. The other man quickly grabbed the only piece of rope they had and tossed it as far as he could into the ocean without losing his grip. The drowning man struggled against the waves and somehow grabbed the other end of the rope– and it broke.

You know, running track, lifting weights, shoot the breeze with his other “jock” friends and discuss the local girls they taunted and so forth. However, today, it was extremely awkward. That feeling I mentioned earlier. Well, not for Sam, but me. Sam has always approached me with a towel wrapped around his waist showing off his muscles. Sat down in front of me and literally have a whole conversation while drying off. Mentally I be like, “Dude, would you please wrap up? Or put some clothes on?” But today... something happened and it was wonky.

Today, I stood on the corner of my street, in my neighborhood, in my city, in my country and I wept… As I took a long look down the incline of Charles Street, I saw, between Baltimore’s Washington Monument and me, a representation of America that is authentic and unstoppable. A shift in the wind, a helicopter fly-over, and a deafening cheer, collaborated to signal the leading drum line to begin.
