My friend and loldarian.com affiliate Cisco of Yo Cisco!.com has a great series on homosexuality in hip-hop running on his site today with exclusive interviews with openly gay rapper Deadlee and author Terrance Dean. And a hot photo shoot designed especially for the series. I highly recommend that you head on over and check it out.
Also if you're in the Atlanta area and you're looking for something to do on Sunday afternoon then I'd like to invite you to come out to the monthly discussion for black gay men 'Second Sunday'. I'll be sitting on a panel with four other wonderful gay men of color as we discuss hot topics in the style of "The View". All the info you'll need to be present is below. Have a great weekend and I hope to see you there!

What presses your buttons? If you have a debatable Hot Topic -- whether it's today's news, an everyday occurrence or something you've been thinking about for a long time and feel really passionate about -- let us know. Bring your own HOT TOPICS to the discussion, to be opened to the audience for feedback or specifically responded to by our dynamic panel of men. See where other men like you land on your own issue, or are they landing nowhere near you at a totally different airport. However it unfolds, we will find commonality and differences amongst men, but its all still OUR VIEW.
