The new issue of Clik magazine has finally arrived on newsstands and bookstores everywhere. This is a very special issue for me, not only because 25 prominent leaders in the Black Gay and SGL community are recognized, but because this magazine contains my very first published article as a writer.
Editor-In-Chief Dwight Powell trusted my ability to interview and write an article on 5 of the Elite 25 honorees. Singer Billy Porter, Filmaker Maurice Jamal, Author E. Lynn Harris, HIV/AIDS activist Rudy Carn, and last but not least Activist/Author/TV Host Keith Boykin.
These are all people that I admire and respect, but if you're a frequent reader of my site then you know how I feel about Keith, and I'm sure you're probably wondering if I maintained my composure during the interview. I can proudly say yes I did, I got it all out before I picked up the phone to call him( LOL !).
It was truly an honor to speak with these fearless leaders and to be in their presence at the awards show . People said that it couldn't be done, they said no one would come, they said no one cared, they were proved wrong.
