In Celebration of Black History Month

By |2019-02-15T09:55:56-05:00February 15th, 2019|Categories: blog|Tags: , , , , , , |2 Comments

     Essex Hemphill—the openly gay, African-American poet and author—truly was a force of nature.  Groundbreaking, Mr. Hemphill blazed the way for talents including James Earl Hardy, E. Lynn Harris…and myself.       So, in celebration of Black History Month, I pay homage to this gifted artist—who certainly was before his time.       And left us way too soon.         Despite a relatively short literary career, Hemphill is [...]

  Love can be so, so…well, over-rated. As you know, I write a continuing series entitled, “Interview with an Escort.” The series is a raw and revealing portrait of “Jase,” an exclusive and highly in-demand NYC gay/SGL “Man of the Evening,” whom I first interviewed in March 2015. Why have I decided to build a series around this individual? Three salient reasons: [...]

     Baltimore Black Pride has arrived!  The yearly—and much anticipated—celebration kicked off on October 3 and ends the 9th.       I managed to “get my hands” on Mr. Carlton R. Smith, the influential and well-respected gay rights activist.  Mr. Smith is the Executive Director/CEO of the Center for Black Equity (CBE) and Co-founder of Baltimore Black Pride.  Having resided in Baltimore for decades, many (including myself) have affectionately bestowed upon him the title [...]

     A little more than a year ago, I published “Interview With An Escort,” a raw and revealing interview I conducted with an exclusive and popular NYC gay male escort.  This is an update.     I will never share his website and contact information because this article is not about advertising or promoting his services.  Instead, it’s to give you, the reader, insight [...]

Mom Assaults Son Because She Believes He’s “Gay”

By |2015-02-23T18:03:18-05:00February 23rd, 2015|Categories: blog, ipva|Tags: , , , , , |2 Comments

      As everyone’s aware, as a journalist, my signature issue is Gay Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse (IPV/A).  This demoralizing, horrendous--and potentially life-threatening--behavior is heavily stigmatized; thereby, it tends to be grossly underreported.  Therefore, I’ve made it my mission to shine a bright light on IPV/A.       And just recently, there’s been an unfortunate “twist” or sorts in this sick, galling [...]

By |2015-01-24T17:07:54-05:00January 24th, 2015|Categories: blog|Tags: , , , , |2 Comments

     I’m pretty sure that just about every gay/SGL and bi guy on the planet knows what poppers are!       And what they do.      But for those who don’t, here’s the deal: poppers are those chems you sniff and inhale during sex to get that HIGH.  And some guys use them to relax, to get that calming buzz—in attempts to [...]

     The following breaking news is disconcerting and sobering—to say the least.  According to, the renowned health, life and HIV media outlet, the rate of primary and secondary syphilis in the U.S. is steadily climbing--with MSM (men who have sex with men) driving a 10 percent increase between 2012 and 2013.   “All told, the rates of syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia [...]
