I’ve been very MIA on here.  Very stop … go … stop …  go …  stop…….. Perhaps I will get around to eloquently describing the experiences this year has brought so far and the new queer ways I am viewing the world and myself.  Spark-notes version: A lot of personal growth and transformation.  A lot […]

A love note

To my progressives, liberals, radicals, and people seeking change, a love note: Why must we continue to look to other people/groups to make the changes we want to see happen?
