So blogging has become my answer to the more tedious work of creating a website. I just don't have the time or the patience to exert all of the energy that it requires to create and maintain a website. So I'm following in the footsteps of a man that I truly respect and admire, Mr. Keith Boykin. I first came across his book One More River to Cross as a teenager growing up in Alabama. I had never known a black man who was gay, out, and so comfortable in his own skin. I didn't know it at the time but this would be a life changing moment for me. It was after reading his book I began to fully accept myself as a same gender loving person, for once I was ok with being the real me. Years have gone by since my initial introduction to the man who would one day feature me on his website, but I have never forgotten the feeling I had when I saw someone who's life mirrored mine on TV and in print. Thanks Keith for being the brave individual you are.
