Dear Kathy Griffin

Dear Kathy Griffin,

You said you wanted to give us something to talk about, and, as usual, you delivered. Yes, I’m talking about the photo. It was controversial, provocative, and visceral – all the things that make art art. And I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it because the photo and our response to it (and you) has given me quite a bit to talk about.

The Gift of Importance

I am writing this a bit early, because I know that when it is due, my life will be crazy. My daughter is getting married one week from today. She is my baby girl, the youngest of four daughters and the last one to get married. Now I know this is the happiest day of her life, but for a dad? Not so much.

As celebrations for Pride month continue to take place over the Mid-Atlantic region, many are flocking to the Keystone State Gay Rodeo in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for a taste of the West. Set for Friday, June 23rd to Sunday,June 25th, the Keystone State Gay Rodeo is an all-inclusive rodeo and community event open to all comers and competitors. Events will include bull riding, barrel racing, chute dogging, and many more.

The Sequined Letter

Recently our little valley made international news. I know this because the story was emailed to me by a friend who recently relocated to New Zealand, a friend who was concerned about what this says about the place I call home. A local girl was not allowed to participate in her high school graduation ceremony because the administration had deemed her “immoral.” She had gotten pregnant out of wedlock, something expressly forbidden by the private Christian school’s code of conduct, and as punishment would not be allowed to participate in her graduation, despite being a good student and president of the student council.
