Baby… #Berlin is Porn That Way; #glbt porn that is…

So Saturday I found myself looking at a gigantic picture of what was undeniably a man. With a pussy.

Yes, it was a naked Buck Angel, and as I’ve heard him described himself, while listening to the Savage Love podcast, he’s a man with a pussy. Never having seen him naked before (not my thing), […]

Matthew Wayne Shepard, † October 12, 1998

Wow, another year has rolled around.

This doesn’t feel as raw as it did the first time, but I still go back through the memories of everything I felt that week, when I was in Bloomington, Indiana, and all the attention was on Laramie, Wyoming.

With distance – both in terms of time (16 years […]

My grand return to Montréal.

I’m nearing the end of my time in Montreal – it’s been a lovely few days with some nice art discoveries (Kent Monkman — I saw another one of his works today), nice long walks, and some good food.

This is not actually my first time in Montreal – in fact, Montreal was the first […]

Yesterday was Christopher Street Day! Happy Gay Pride Berlin!

The start of the CSD Parade feautred flags from around the world, with rainbow flags added.

a boy — he’s got a metal chain attached and his owner is behind him. Both were having a great time.

Shoe switch — She couldn’t take the heels any longer, so she switch with a […]

15 years since Matthew Shepard was murdered

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since I left the University of Wyoming for points east – and ultimately Germany.

Two months after moving to Bloomington, Laramie was in the news.

From the luxury of my home in Berlin, I can still think back to how I felt those 1998 October days […]

Wouldn’t it be nice if everybody had to come out? Thoughts on Raising my Rainbow.

I just finished reading Raising My Rainbow: Adventures in Raising a Fabulous, Gender Creative Son, by Lori Duron. She chronicles her experiences raising her youngest son, CJ, who, despite being a boy, loves all things Barbie, pink, and fabulous.

He abhors boy things.

The book is really fantastic – in part because she does not […]

Gay Hiroshima

I did not set out to make this trip a party trip – this trip was, first and foremost, about seeing baseball games, while engaging in a bit of nuclear tourism. But that’s not to say I didn’t look up information about gay Hiroshima.

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of information about gay […]

CSD Berlin, 2013: In photographs

Yesterday was a fine day for a parade and a fine day for allergies. This does not make for a great combination, at least as far as I am concerned.

That said, did go to the Christopher Street Day Parade here in Berlin, lasted for about two hours (of the parade) before my capacity to […]

Coolest thing I saw Wednesday: A fem in a short denim skirt.

Since I am flying today (Thursday), I went out for a late lunch Wednesday at my nearby excellent Indian Restaurant – it’s a few blocks away and I seem to go there for a meal the evening before most major trips.

Normally there’s not much to remark upon – the food is excellent and I […]

Flying Pam Ann

my ticket!

Wednesday night I finally saw a comedian that I’ve wanted to see for years: Pam Ann.

Given how much I love travel, in particular, flying, let me just say that Pam Ann is a comedian right up my alley. She does comedy that is based on the airline industry, poking fun […]
