And My Favorite Picture

Taken Tuesday night before last on an overnight camping trip to The Woods Campground with my friends John and Hugo.

And Then There Was Pride June 2007

And since I marched, or should I say ran and cruised the whole parade I only have a few pics. Our group at the beginning of the march(I took the pic so I am missing).And our group at the end of the march which I got in so people would know I was actually there.
And also funny. I recently, as in two days ago, got a message on from a guy wanting to talk and he is a film maker, funny enough I actually took a picture of his most recent subjects. I told him about it, guess I should send him the link to this posting so he knows I was not making it up.

Great fun. If you were there and close to a barrier I am sure I ran past you handing out volleyball cards to the masses.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah......

We were standing at that sign for a few minutes trying to figure out how to say it and then why someone would make the obvious mistake and not fix it eventually.
This shot was on the way to my friend Everett's bday party out in Astoria. It was a train ride and a bit of a walk and no friends showed up, I would have killed them but we had a good time anyway.
I went out with my friend Steve and we met up with Jorge and his hubby Steve.I wrote about the event a bit ago. These are the Hell Gate Social pics.

are coming later today.
Grab hold of something, not too tight though, and I will be back.
I swear this time I will be back.

Just Watch....

This is Beyonce in concert in Florida in the last few days.
Let it load up so the picture is clear, obviously it is camera phone but it gets better.
Entertaining in two ways.

****Oh well, the power that be at the Knowles family seem to have gotten to Youtube and removed the video. But it just makes it all the more fun to have had the chance to see it a few times.****

Go Mama Go

So back from walking around DC a little bit and thought I would tell you about this little store we visited along the way.

Go Mama Go.

It is actually quite a big shop and it is full of housing stuff. Giving you everything from plates and glasses to tea services; photos to note cards. Anything you can think of in a gift shop type of store you can find.

It wasn't so much the store that impressed me, even though it had alot of nice stuff, but it was the owner who I heard about that really had me thinking.

Noi Chudnoff, a very sweet Thailand-born woman, is owner along with her husband. I did not meet him because he was not in the store at the time.

What impressed me so much, aside from her serious business sense; you could feel it coming from her, was her commitment to the GLBT community. She has floats and does the DC Pride each year and is a very big supporter both emotionally and financially to the DC GLBT groups.

From what I understand it was her knowledge of the persecution of the GLBT community in her native country that opened her eyes and her heart.

I think I am writing this because this is someone outside of the community who has made it her own. I think it would be nice if we did that for ourselves without needing a pat on the back or some awards/building named after us.

We should be more like her; do what you do and if people want to tell others about you then fine, but no need to toot your own horn.

Check out the store.

Taking Some Time Away...

Writing to you from Washington DC as I visit my friend Milton for a day or two.
I figured NYC was rainy and gay so it is a good time to go for a little get away.
Back this weekend for some volleyball in the park, of course, so see you all soon.
If you are in DC and I never get to see you leave a message and we can try and hang out before I leave Saturday or Sunday.
Over and Out.

How I Spent the Afternoon.
