This past Saturday night in Atlanta over fifty black gay men gathered to participate in a special screening and discussion of The DL Chronicles. This was an event that started out as a rather small gathering in my mind that evolved into an evening that far surpassed my expectations.
There is only one other time in my life that I remember being surrounded by so many gay men of color who were out, proud, and making a difference in their communities and the world and that was during the first Clik Honors.
This was one of those times when you could feel that you were in the midst of greatness. Despite what people may say, brothas can come together for functions outside of the club.
I'd like to thank J. Brotherlove, James Earl Hardy, Eric Ware, Tim'm West, Anthony Antoine, and Anrae Holmes for participating on the panel. You guys were truly the icing on the cake for me.
I'd be remiss not to publicly thank my "huzman" (thanks for giving me a new word James) Trey and my friends Bennie, Travis, Derek, and Tobias for all of their help in making this event a success.
Check out this wonderful review of the evening on Truthfully Speaking as well as the pics and video footage. Now you know I never leave home without my camera...lol!
