Happy Pride!


This is the gayest picture of myself I could find -- as Dandini in Rossini's La Cenerentola. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, wherever they are and whatever they're doing. For those of you who are new to the blog: Why I March. Posted by Picasa

And remember, happiness is just a flaming 'mo away!

Happy Pride!

Me and my mate went to pride about 2 weeks ago here in Detroit, it was my first and it was awesome.

I read that entry again--and just like the first time, I was struck by the naked honesty of your words. There is so much in your words that is so personally familiar--I dare say probably universal for many gay men.

It reminds me of so many things--good and bad. But, ultimately, it reminds me of a journey I am surprisingly thankful to have made.

But, what I really wanted to say was that knowing you makes me a better man. Happy Pride!

Well done with the pic. The character's name was Dandini??? How apt.

You go Andy! Happy Pride.

saw you at pride today - youre the best marcher in the whole world - you set the example for the rest of us novices.

Andy said...

You exaggerate slightly. I was completley phoning it in yesterday. You should have said hello!

Holy crap! That picture rocks. The cinderblock background makes for a bizarre juxtaposition.

I hate to be off-topic here but something is on my mind:

Why did you change your profile picture? I thought the old one was much better as it showed you smiling. Can we go about this democratically and vote on a set of pictures that we may properly decide on the face of your internet alter-ego?

LC, this would only invite people here to vote on changes to your blog photo ... I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a pleasant ride :P.

I changed the photo because it was fully four years old, and while it IS probably my favorite picture of myself, I didn't feel it was representative of what I really look like these days. I get emails and occasional letters and gifts and comments about my "good looks," so I changed the photo because I felt like it was false advertising. I'd been meaning to do it for a while, I just didn't have a picture I liked.

Well, my criticism has nothing to do with what you "look like"- just get a picture of you smiling and wearing something other than an undershirt! You're doing such injustice to your appearance! (This is friendly criticism of course, not a demand) (:
