Politics

Right now there are 2 Democrats running that are trying to make it on the Primary in November 2016 and I had mixed emotions of who I wanted to vote for, either Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, as they both share a lot of the same views of each other. I have made my decision….

Homophobia 

Homophobia is still one phobia that is vastly looked upon. Homophobics are still trying to state the homosexuality is still a choice of the human race. I can attest from my point of being a homosexual that it is not a choice.  Then there is another thing that gets on my nerves. People who say they don’t care that you are gay, bi, trans, etc. But yet they don’t approve of same-sex marriage. They tell me they have no homophobic characterics in their body, but yet I’m my opinion they do when they object to samesex marriage.  I can say that we have come a long way in getting equal rights and treatments in our country and other countries worldwide. The fight isn’t over yet. In fact it has just begun. We still have a long way to go to make sure everyone has the same equal rights as the heterosexuals (opposite sex relationships) do.  There has been one movie/documentary that I have enjoyed since its release and shared and talked about on many occasions …

Coming Out

A lot of people still today don’t know about my sexual orientation. I don’t like to broadcast it either. I believe that it is my personal life and if I wanted to broadcast it I would in a dramatic way. But I haven’t done that and have no intentions on doing that. The one reason that I am doing this like this, is because I feel like I need to let people know. I’m not the one that’s going to be all flamboyant about it either. I’m not the one to be all flamboyant. I am more on the straight acting side all though I do have some feminine qualities, such as my clothing, must match and be in style. A lot of people call it a “Life-Choice” or “Lifestyle”. That is one thing that gets under my skin. It isn’t a lifestyle or life-choice. Being gay isn’t a choice. It is just who you are and you shouldn’t be afraid to show who you truly are. Yes, being gay, is still hard for some …

Love Conquers Hate

Since the recent ruling within the Supreme Court of The United States of America over marriage equality there has been a lot of opposition that I have heard through various channels, including social media and through words of mouth. The total of this post is just what it means.  Love will conquer Hate. Love is a powerful emotion that everyone carries within themselves. This marriage equality isn’t the last thing that the LGBT community will have to deal with it. Now the next hurdle that we Americans will have to fight for is FULL EQUALITY. Right now there is legislation within congress to protect LGBT citizens from being discriminated even further. Right your employer can terminate you for your place of employment for simply being gay. That is just simply unjust.  We have to stand together and support this act that is in legislation and contact our legislators to vote yes on the Equality Act.  We will continue to fight for our rights and and end to discrimination. If you support equality as I do …

Family Equality Discrimination

It is a complete shame that many families discriminate against their family members for being who they are, gay. It shouldn’t matter who you love. Love is Love. I know that I do have to deal with this form of discrimination with my family and distant family members. The only ones in my family that I know of that supports equality is my mother, brother Lawrence, sister-in-law Tonya. My other brothers and distant family members don’t approve of equality. They don’t believe that same-sex couples deserve the right to marry and they won’t acknowledge it. My eldest niece that I have nothing to do with, is gay. Her parents don’t approve of her being gay and believe that it is a lifestyle choice of being gay. They have had enough nerve to blame me for making her gay. Well I can say that I had nothing to do with that. You’re either gay or your not, its not a choice. It’s hardwired into you. It shouldn’t matter who it is that you love. As long …

Coming Out

The Rhodes Bros rose to fame with their inspiring story of coming out. What makes it even more special is that they are twins. After watching this inspiring store, I have made it clear that the right choice for me to do is to come out as well. Although I am 26 and shouldn’t be scared or anything, I am. I made it public a few months ago, right here on my blog for everyone to see it. This story is just so inspiring I give The Rhodes Bros a lot of props for doing it. I couldn’t have done it the way that they did and it going viral.  I have attached their YouTube video of them coming out to their dad that they recorded so that you can see it as well. After watching this video of The Rhodes Bros, I have subscribed to their channel on YouTube and watch their videos as they come out. They have some amazing tips, information, and knowledge that they like to share and just out right …

Equality

With the recent #SCOTUS ruling, Marriage Equality is now the law of the land across the United States. United States of America has made tremendous history that will go down in the history books. Their are still bigots over the #MarriageEquality. With me being a part of the LGBT community I can not understand why people would want to discriminate against the LGBT community. We are all created equal. We were created by the holy spirit to be who we want to be. The bible says that we should not judge nor discriminate against others, but the hypocritical religious freaks apparently don’t want to support that part of the bible but they are so-called faithful believers of our heavenly father. If they were such faithful believers, they wouldn’t be discriminating against anyone. Sexual Orientation shouldn’t be something to be ashamed of. This is the 21st Century. God created us to be who we are. If god didn’t want “gays” he wouldn’t have created them. People believe that being gay is a “Life Choice”, in which …

Supreme Court Marriage Equality Ruling

06/26/2015 Update: The United States Supreme Court in Washington, DC has declared Marriage Equality across the nation. Today is a day to go down in the history books. States will now have to recognize same-sex marriages that were performed anywhere in the United States and will have to issue the licenses as well. Todays vote was a 5-4 vote in the Obergefell v. Hodges. Companies across the Nation are rejoicing the the decision as well, including American Air, Target, etc., & Tim Cook. To View the #SCOTUS Ruling you can see it here. Original:   The US Supreme Court has added a non-argument day to their calendar for Thursday June 18, 2015 at 10:00am. This event was added to deliver the opinions on matters that have been argued in the Court. This in my opinion could be the delivery of the Marriage Equality across the states. On April 28, 2015 the court heard the oral arguments in the cases of Obergefell v. Hodges 14-556-Question-1 & Obergefell v. Hodges 14-556-Question-2. So come this day we will know …

Equality

  Well it is June 2015, and a ruling is expected from the Supreme Court Justices on the matter of Marriage Equality across the border. They will decide if all states should allow same-sex marriages and recognize them or not. I can say that I will be watching and waiting for the ruling on this matter as it is an important matter that needs to be taken and since no one wants to take action on it, the U.S. Supreme court should as some states refuse to even recognize the marriage from another state as it is banned in their state. I believe that everyone should have the same equal rights and opportunities. This country is supposed to be a free and welcoming country and so far it isn’t showing it. With this ruling it will finally allow same-sex marriage in all 50 states. It is already legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The ruling is expected to come at the end of the month. So I will be watching and waiting …
