BLOG IN FULL ORDER Hey! You! Get Out of My Way! Part1 I love New York. Don’t get me wrong, I honestly love New York. I think that I liked it better when it was scary and full of crime though. It kept you on your toes. Not to mention all the day to day drama. The looking over your shoulder to see who or what might be lurking in the shadows. This was the 80’s, the fabulous 80’s. Back when I had a Flock of Seagulls hairdo and people knew what Kajagoogoo meant. Back then when someone was [...]
<Waves> Hello extended family. Want to start by saying Thank You for all the love, continuing support and contribution to date. We originally started backinthegays to give people the opportunity to share their own history or share those that are no longer part of our lives. Which is where the tag line started: Committed to stories and events that happened back in the days in the LGBTQIA community. Two years later, we’re still committed to your stories, individual history and continuing struggles our community faces in 2012. When we had our show with QPR in 2011 a new tag line [...]

Just wanted to share a little information about http://backinthegays.com/. We are a non-for-profit… Which means we are NOT doing this for profit and we’re NOT a legal nonforprofit quite yet. So, we want to make sure people understand that we started this from the kindness of our hearts. I have personally done some bogus things that I regret in the past to our community. May 17, 2010 was the day I said to Robert W. Fenton that I have to make http://backinthegays.com/ a reality. So, I can give back to what I have personally have taken for granted. Which was [...]
As we approach the summer hump, we reflect on everything backinthegays with the many contributions you our readers have made and we thank you. With out you, we would not be that much closer to our Mission Statement. June 17, 2012 marked the 2 year anniversary of BiTG and the response has been nothing but love. On our journey into our third year, things are becoming more clear where backinthegays is becoming an educational platform for our LGBTQIA community in a pop culture and politically aware way. Every day is getting a little easier, but we still have a [...]
