The late night cruise was anything but looking for love. The musty bar smell, the poppers and the music they all set the mood on a late Sunday Night in New York City in 1979. Queen – ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’, Courtesy of queenofficial. Thank you ...
The music of Summer’s past. The memories that bring you back to where you were when you first heard this summer hits. Sitting in the back seat of your Daddies car making out, going to the hottest Disco of that Summer or Just hanging out with you Extended Family. That’s the music of Back in the Gays. ...

June 24, 2011 marks a major part in our history with marriage equality passing in New York State and in 30 days it will pass into law.

It’s June and that means it’s LGBT Pride Month and even our president has acknowledged it! So lets look at some of the set backs and movements forward in the community. In 1779 president Thomas Jefferson, a liberal, proposed a law that would castrate men that were found to be gay. At the time the most common penalty was death so in a really bad way this was somewhat of a movement forward. It took over 200 years for the U.S. supreme court to over turn these types of laws making it illegal to discriminate against anyone because of their sexual orientation. In 1961 Illinois [...]
When you usually hear the name Anna Wintour it’s usually because how rude she is or how hard it is to work with her. Today we tip our hats off to Miss Wintour for supporting equal marriage rights to ALL New Yorkers equally, If nYc & State feel they can take our LGBT tax money.

I was emotionally drained, in a fog (psychologically and literally) and it was Christmas. The hot tub you see in the picture was definitely a lot of help. As I stepped into [...]
