A New Pride Flag?

Before I begin to talk about the “new Pride flag,” I must state that this is my opinion and not that of this publication or of my community in Asbury Park as a whole. There’s been a lot of buzz recently about the “new Pride flag,” that includes two added colors, in brown and black, to represent black and people of color.

Our Foot Print

As we embark on the month of June, we realize two things, one, wow! Summer is here and two, it’s Gay Pride month. As I write this column, and as I prepare to celebrate gay Pride with my friends and chosen family here in Asbury Park, I can’t help but think about how it all began. I think of how the millennials and the younger children will never understand how hard our pioneers had it before the pomp and circumstance of Gay Pride parades. With the political climate being what it is now and with an administration that doesn’t acknowledge Gay Pride and furthermore a vice president that believes in conversion therapy for gays. Today I choose to revisit a little Gay Pride history and offer you a chance see not only where we’ve been and how far we’ve come, but also how important it is to keep fighting for our rights. I invite you to resist.

Paint the Town Pink!

On Friday, May 5th, Asbury Park came together as a community, as they have for the past five years for the 5th annual “Pink Prom” to raise funds to another amazing cause. The event took place in one of my favorite venues in Asbury Park, Hotel Tides. This is the fifth year of this spectacular event that has amassed thousands of dollars to help local LGBTQ organizations, and it has turned into one of New Jersey’s most successful fundraisers. In the last five years the Pink Prom has benefited Pride Network, Pride Center of New Jersey, Project Real, Gender Spectrum Support Network, Glsen, and this year, Garden State Equality, an organization that has done so much for the LGBTQ community, and now will continue to do so.

Let’s Talk About PrEP, Baby

I know that there has been a lot of buzz about PrEP on social media, both positive and negative. As a PrEP counselor for the Visiting Nurse Association, I want to take this opportunity to state some basic facts, not opinions about the drug with you all. Let’s start with the basics.

My Friend Ashunta Sheriff

I’d like to introduce you to my friend Ashunta Sheriff. She and I worked together at a beauty counter at Henri Bendel in New York City for a couple of years. She’s moved on since then to do huge things throughout her 18-year career. Ashunta has an amazing list of celebrity clientele including, Alicia Keyes and Taraji P. Henson on the Fox network’s raging hit, “Empire,” to name just a few.
