In two weeks Fenway Health will host one of the largest LGBT fundraisers in New England. The Men’s Event, which takes place on Saturday, March 11th will draw more than 1,300 supporters to raise funds for one of the nation’s largest LGBT clinics and to bring our community together to celebrate our accomplishments. Unlike recent years, a chilling shift in political currents has taken place in the United States and after having a friend in the White House for the past eight years, the LGBT community finds itself facing a President who says he’s a friend but who’s actions indicate something very different.
It is important for our community to come together and support each other which is one reason Sergio and I will be attending this year’s program. Tickets remain available for the 2016 Men’s Event on Saturday, March 19. To learn more about the event or to purchase tickets visit, mensevent.org.
To give you a taste, here is a video of Fenway Men’s event from a few years ago.
Have you seen Diesel’s new ad campaign, Make Love Not Walls? The campaign launched on Valentine’s Day is all about tearing down the mental and physical walls that separate us so we can come together in the name of unity and love. Much thanks to Sergio for sharing this with me.
In honor of the Super Bowl, which takes place later today, I wanted to share this classic skit from the 80s show, In Living Color. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the show, definitely check it out on YouTube.
President Obama addressed thousands of supporters and the nation in his final public address on Tuesday, January 10, 2017. Barack and Michelle Obama are likely to be remembered by me as my favorite President and First Lady.
While Obama’s list of accomplishments are impressive, what I’ll always remember and thank Obama for is the acknowledgement and inclusion of the LGBTQ community in their vision of America.
Thank You President and Mrs. Obama.
Although I don’t observe the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, I believe today marks the end of the “festival of lights”. I’d like to thank Tim H. for sharing the video with me earlier this week. It seems like a nice way to acknowledge the holiday.
I posted this last year but thought it worth reposting again. The Underwear Expert Blog asked their handsome style report, Jared North, to try on a variety of underwear types and colors based on traditions from different countries. Most of these traditions are meant to bring success, health or a better love life in the New Year. Which tradition will you be following when you slip on your underwear Saturday night?
