Horoscope Compatibility // Dating Deal Breakers //

‘He’s such a Leo.’
‘Of course you didn’t work out – he’s a Taurus.’

These are common phrases that the love lost usually hear at some point of time.

Horoscopes, whether you believe in them or not are a swaying factor for many people when it comes to relationship compatibility…or are they?

I discuss this with my good friend Emma Jane and uncover if we think horoscope compatibility is a dating deal breaker.

The Epidemic of Gay Loneliness // Article Repost

I came across this article from a Tumblr vlogger  and was blown away at how many truths it exposed. The writer, Michael Hobbes hits almost every nail on the head when talking about growing up gay and how it effects you. I was moved at how much it spoke to me as a gay man who is also a person of color. This article is for everyone to read. It helps to uncover our need to grow and change as a gay community and also helps those who are Allies to understand how many gay men see the world. Please check it out:

Dear White People // TV That’s Snatching My Weave

I’m going to keep this short, but please watch this show. This show is so important, especially now. It centers around an Ivy League university in the States and focuses on the racial issues young black people face and what they want to do about it. It is funny, entertaining and too real. I just got to the halfway mark of the first season and it has some extremely powerful moments in it. The way the story is told is showing each character in their small community on campus and how they are interwoven and what their individual perspectives are. The way they tell the story helps to be inclusive and show that there is diversity even within communities.

You may have clicked on or followed this blog for one reason. But remember all people who are marginalized and have had histories of oppression feel a similar pain. Not the same, but similar. This common thread should allow us to not only empathize but be willing to stand up for all injustices. Watch. Stay woke.

Hugging my one and only mama after coming out to her in 2015.

Mother // Perspectives //

Happy Mother’s Day ya’ll! Now I was feeling particularly festive this year and decided to start (another) series. This one is called, Perspectives and I am hoping to interview a variety of people with varied outlooks to have an open conversation to understand their point of view.

In this first episode of Perspectives, I talk to my good old mom to try to understand what it felt like after I came out to her, what she fears, and she even gives some advice to kids and parents on how to approach your gay child.
