Haveing My Boyfriend To Dinner This Sunday

Well it turns out that while I was trying to figure out how to ease Dad into the idea and test to waters mom decided to have a direct conversation with him.  Something I had not asked her to do, but being mom not something I'm shocked that she did seeing as part of her desire is to have my BF welcome at the house.  The end result was that dad is willing to have dinner and meet him, "because that's what it's going to take"  and that this Sunday is the day. 
So I'm excited about that but also well obviously nervous as I know it's going to be awkward and I do want them to at least like each other, not only that but it also gives mom some "grilling" time of her own to "get to know him better". 

I know this is probably going to be exceptionally awkward for dad, and that is something to an extent that I had wanted to avoid as much as possible, in part because I wanted to insure that the when this did happen it would not risk being unbeneficial to him in the process of acceptance.  However I also hope that it happening this way will help things as at times with Dad it takes having to some extent things spelled out and his hand forced to get him to take a step and to wind up ultimately more comfortable with a situation, and I really hope that this will allow him to see that I am happy in my life and that to the most part what he hoped for me is still within my reach and that I am not only striding toward that but towards what I want as well.  All of those things would be something he would not likely see if his comfort envelope was not pushed slightly to allow them to enter the frame.  So right now I am left holding my breath nervously in anticipation and awaiting the outcome.  As always thank you for fallowing along with me and also your comments and feed back are always appreciated and read. Until next time, which should be after the big meet when I will have news of how that went plus a further tidbit of already planed things to come the fallowing weekend. ;-)

Insight Into Myself From Article Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness

So I recently read this article on The Huffington Post Hightline called Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness this article is one that I would highly recommend reading.  It is an article that touched me in a significant way.  The article fouces on why even thought the gay community has come a long way in gaining equal rights, it still suffers from high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety and substance abuse.  The article points out that "are between 2 to 10 times more likely then straight people to take their own life. Where twice as likely to have a major depressive episode" And this pattern holds up in countries that where even early adopter to things like gay marriage.  While there virtually no study on the subject in the US in Canada it has been found that more gay men a year die from suicide them they do for HIV/AIDs if those finding are to hold true in the US suicide could be the next major epidemic with in the gay community taking countless number of lives…

When We Rise Review.

I know that I am late to the game on When We Rise on ABC, but I have just finished watching it on demand.  I would say if you have not watched it, it is a must watch.  The series is very well put together, and it gets you wrapped up in it from the very start, and you will want to binge watch the whole series in one sitting, This the cinematography in this series is first rate, and the use of music helps to increase the emotional impact of this series, I have to admit that I teared up multiple times through out the series, as you get so deeply engrossed in what is going on that emotionally you wined up placing yourself into what is going on.  While I wish that they had put in a few more things in the gay rights movement it really dose a very thorough job of showing the fight for equality.  More after the jump.

Proud To Be: why i'm proud to be the man that I am.

So You Tube has created a hash tag to help celebrate pride month (especially in the wake of Orlando), I thought that I would do a blog post in the spirit of the prompt as I have not had time to make a video, and I am not sure when or if I will.  However I still want to show my pride, not just as a gay man but as a person in general, as I think that all of myself sort of melds together.
