Hey ! Allow me to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. I know many of you will be making the trip to Atlanta this weekend to partcipate in the annual Black Gay Pride event . I will also be out and about and I thought I would list some of the events I'm particularly excited about that will probably not get as much buzz as the overpriced parties everyone will be attending. If you see me out make sure you say hello. Have fun and play safe boys! I will return on Monday with a full recap of Pride 07.
