We are on the march again January 21, 2017 As a kid I read saddened newspaper accounts of blacks brutally beaten when they stood up to segregation. I watched urban riots burn swaths of Detroit and LA to rubble. I watched demonstrations at the Democratic Convention in Chicago in 1968 turn into a police riot. […]
Our Time is the story of a man named Paul and his generation that said, “Now it’s our time to be treated just like everyone else.” They were proud of being gay and they were given by San Francisco that wrapped its foggy arms around outcasts the freedom to create their own neighborhood in the […]
The Trump presidency will prove once and for all that Republicans can’t govern. They run against government and once they get into office they raid the treasury and vote for tax breaks and regulations no one sees that let corporations get away with murder. Trickledown economics has never worked and Trump’s neo-fascism won’t work either. […]
Thomas Nast is famous for his depiction of 19th Century politicians and robber barons. I can’t draw but were he alive today one of Nast’s cartoons would have on one side of the frame a group of overweight businessmen in 3-piece suits sitting around a table covered with piles of cash. On the other side […]
In the last week I’ve sensed a coming together among the diverse communities that make up America. The drumbeats are getting stronger.

In a recent article on Queerty Tom Ford is quoted as saying, “All men should be f*cked. “I think it would help them understand women,” he argues. “It’s such a vulnerable position to be in, and it’s such a passive position to be in. And there’s such an invasion, in a way, that even if […]
THOM GUNN, FORMALIST RENEGADE 1929-2004 My first date with Thom Gunn did not go well. It happened in Chicago in the late-1970’s. After a couple hours of unsuccessful cruising in a few bars, I found Thom in a bookstore in Moly and My Sad Captains. I recognized his name and being newly out as a […]
Dear Nancy, I have been a steadfast supporter and constituent since before you were Speaker and got laws passed in Congress and I was chairman of the board of the Human Rights Campaign Fund, now the Human Rights Campaign. Americans are fed up with inaction and I waited in vain this fall for the Democrats […]
November 10, 2016 Son, I want to leave you a better world than the one I found but with the recent election it does not look like I can’t. As your father in addition to caring for you I’ve enjoyed sex and worked on behalf of the gay and lesbian community. I’m very proud of […]
I am proud of being a great at sex. In my first years in San Francisco I moved up the ladder from sucking to fucking and on to fisting. Then I learned to play with pain with S&M, so I’m pretty well-rounded. Now at 72 I’ve hung up my spurs. Making friends when I grew […]
