this weekend is glbt pride in the twin cities and for the first time since i came out all those years ago, i won’t be here to celebrate.  i will be directing a show in victoria, british columbia.

as much as i’m extradinarily humbled to be gay in 2007 and able to be out and live a comforatable life, as some of you know – i struggle with where i fit in the gay world.  that said, it still bum’s me out that i won’t be here to be “out and proud”.

i don’t have a clue where the next year is going to take me (the journey is the fun), but as i look back on the last year i have some thoughts:

  • to james; thank you for opening me up to the possibility again…

  • to chris; thank you for making me see the humor in being gay and to take things light…

  • to ray and jeremy; for always being there and showing me it can work…

  • to jen; for showing me the beauty in life and the passion in all…

  • to amy; for the music and your smile…

  • to scott; for always being there.  always…

  • to ax and jerry; agian, it can work.  you guys are proof…

  • to jason; my new gay brother – thanks for the beer and being there to listen…

  • to alexander; for always showing the “goods” – woof…

  • to brian; for whimsy.  life is better with whimsy…

  • to all the gay bloggers out there (with a hat tip to tacnik and tugboat); you impress and challenge me to do better.  thank you…

an important thank you to stacey, hammer, wendy, greg & bill – you may be straight but your certainly not narrow.  you’ve been with me for years – always supporting, always challenging and always there.  i wouldn’t be half the man i am without you in my life.  thank you for helping me on my journey.

happy pride everyone!
