I’ve made it my ongoing--and fervent--mission to continue to shine a bright light on a certain demoralizing, insidious and horrific cycle of behavior that continues to be a growing concern within the LGBTQ Community.  This is Part Nine of the ongoing series that will address this potentially life-threatening cycle of abuse.     It’s purple month!         “Yeah?  Really? Well, what’s it all [...]

     COVID-19.  The Pandemic. The Coronavirus. Or simply, ‘Rona.       Whatever you choose to call it, this societal scourge is wreaking havoc in so many innumerable ways.  According to the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), “The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic recession have negatively affected many people’s mental health and created new barriers for people already suffering from mental illness and substance [...]

"Staying Sane in 2020"  Guest Writer: W.D. Foster-Graham                 2020, in many respects, has been a year of insanity. I won’t rehash that which we already know, but the negative energy from it is something we cannot allow ourselves to be inundated with. As a man of a certain age, I have learned much from my 90-year-old mother from [...]

“The Midas Touch” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman         We were standing six feet apart from each other. Because of the coronavirus, it was the ritual.   We’ve been dealing with this virus for the last seven months, and social distancing has become a part of life. So, here we stand. We’d just finished having lunch and walked to my car, which [...]

"A Devastating Truth"  Guest Writer: Bishop Hartsel Clifton Shirley     History’s gatekeepers often write it, omitting crucial characters and events.   While they shine a more positive light on the misinformation, this does history an egregious disservice. The history of AIDS--particularly in the United States--is no different.  A case in point is the ethnicity of the individual suggested to represent the earliest [...]

"The Right to Be"  Guest Writer: W.D. Foster-Graham                Indeed, it is exciting to have a new book launched. In writing Never Give Up: A Christopher Family Novel, I wondered in the beginning if I could write a whodunit, given that I love to watch movies and shows like Midsomer Murders, Forensic Files, Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, Inspector Morse, Poirot, [...]

     Even when antiretroviral therapy is effective, individuals with HIV still sustain damage to the central nervous system—which includes the brain.  And unfortunately, detecting these changes early and reliably is far from an easy feat.      There’s good news, however.  Recently, a test was conducted that examines brain waves to evaluate just how well that organ processes sound.  This new study is [...]

By |2020-08-21T02:38:31-04:00July 29th, 2020|Categories: blog|Tags: , |3 Comments

     “What a man, what a man, what a man…What a mighty good man…”—“Whatta Man,” by Salt-n-Pepa with En Vogue.     A while back, I penned an article about one of my early idols, Chris Dickerson, a Mr.Olympia.  Becoming the first African-American, oldest, and openly-gay/SGL (same-gender-loving) Mr. Olympia, Chris truly was a trailblazer.       Unfortunately, in early March, the icon fell at [...]

"Flirting With 70"  Guest Writer: W.D. Foster-Graham                Yes, I said it. I haven’t consummated it yet, but I am in the flirting zone with 70.      That was such an alien concept to my 21-year-old brain in the early 1970s, somewhere in the future far, far away, off in my grandmother’s territory. And to be gay and [...]
