Hernandez and Homophobia

Aaron Hernandez wasn’t exactly a good guy. The former NFL star and tight end for the New England Patriots was serving a life sentence for murder without the possibility for parole before his suicide on the morning of April 19th. Some celebrated his death, posting memes on social media with messages like, “Life Sentence. Hang in there, Aaron.” In fact, most of these messages involved variations of the “hang in there” sentiment. This is rather cold, considering that Hernandez hanged himself in his prison cell. He may have been a monster, but that doesn’t mean we have to be monsters too.

The Power of Dirt

Cassandra is learning to share. She will share her toys (sometimes), and she absolutely loves to share her food. Just yesterday, she and I shared a glass of ice water. She drank her share and then passed it to me. She helped me hold the glass, as I always do with her, and was not satisfied until I drank some of the water. We continued to drink, passing the glass back and forth, for several minutes. She beamed every time I took a drink.

Keeping Cowboy Fires Burning

International Gay Rodeo Association maintains the cowboy way of life

In 1996, Paula Cole once asked “Where have all the cowboys gone?” Mid-Atlantic residents won’t have to look far, as cowboys and cowgirls from all over will be galloping to Harrisburg to take part in the Keystone State Gay Rodeo this June. Baltimore OUTloud, a proud sponsor for the rodeo, recently chatted with International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) President Bruce Gros about the mission of the IGRA and the importance of maintaining the group’s longstanding role in the community.

The Ambassador’s Ritual

When I was a teenager I couldn’t wait to come out. I lived in a small-town resembling Andy Griffith’s Mayberry, a place that seemed to have missed the memo that LGBTQ persons live and walk among us in everyday life. Sure, there were mentions of gay people, but they were almost never positive. As such, timing became critical. I would have to wait for a safe, appropriate time to come out to the people in my life.

Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Nothing hurts quite as much as the breakup of a long-term relationship. This is the person who knows more about you than anyone else. This is the person you’ve trusted and loved. This is the person who’s seen you at your best and your worst, still sticking around– until the day they didn’t.
