GAY PRIDE MONTH; Day Seven, Special Guest BA Tortuga

Oh happy day! Look who my guest is today! The awesome and immortal BA Tortuga! I danced around the room when she not only said, “yes,” to joining in on my celebration of Gay Pride month, but, “Absolutely. When do you need it by?” 🙂 And when I said, “How soon can you get it to me?” she got it to me in about a day and a half! Made my day!

So without further ado, I present BA Torguta’s very personal and sweet coming out story. I dare you not to be touched by this one.

Take it away, BA!


Coming Out

GAY PRIDE MONTH; Day Four, Pride Music

There are a lot of songs out there that we have come to consider gay anthems. “I Will Survive,” “I Am What I Am,” “I’m Coming Out,” and so many others. Songs that stir us, bring tears to our eyes, and make us want to stand up and pump our fists and proclaim that, “I am what I am, and what I am needs no excuses!” Or in this case, “I step out of the
ordinary, I can feel my soul ascending, I’m on my way, can’t stop me now!”

I thought over this month I would present the videos of some of my very favorites. I will start with Heather Small’s “Proud.” What do you think? And what are some of your favorites.

Happy Pride!

Heather Small

I look into the window of my mind
Reflections of the fears I know I’ve left behind
I step out of the ordinary
I can feel my soul ascending
I’m on my way
Can’t stop me now
And you can do the same (yeah)  Continue reading

GAY PRIDE MONTH, Day Three: The Exciting Return of “Tales of the City!”

What a wonderful celebration of Gay Pride month! The triumphant return of “Tales of the City!” So excited! From the preview it doesn’t look like what I was expected, which was a filming of the later books, like, “Michael Tolliver Lives,” “Mary Ann in Autumn,” and “The Days of Anna Madriga,” but I could be wrong. Whatever it is, it comes with Armistead Maupin’s blessing, and the joyous return of Laura Linney as Mary Ann Singleton and Olympia Dukakis as Anna Madrigal. AND as of this posting, we only have to wait four days until the first season begins on Netflix! If there is any series of books and movies and now a series that celebrates gay life, and human life, it’s this one!

Today is National Plumber’s Day

Today is National Plumber’s Day! And what would we do without those men with their plungers and snakes all ready to clean out our pipes? So today I present a naughty tribute to those (sometimes) sexy men. And some of these are pretty naughty and very well might be considered NSFW. No full on nudity…but only a few steps away from.

By the way, today is also National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, National DNA Day, National East Meets West Day aka Elbe Day (whatever in the world that means), National Hairstylist Appreciation Day, National Crayola Day, National Telephone Day, National Zucchini Bread Day, National Parental Alienation Day (I read the description and I still didn’t understand this one), National Poem in You Pocket Day (??), National Red Hat Society Day, National Mani-Pedi Day, World Malaria Day and World Penguin Day.

I could have done something about one of those instead. But my naughty nature took control and this is what you get!

Hope you enjoy!

A Very Naughty Easter

Happy Easter! Today is a day of renewal. Today of resurrection. And day of promise. I want you to know that I do know that. It is something I can’t forget having been raised very strict Baptist.

But I also am a big old gay boy and I believe in my heart of heart of hearts that God gave us our sexuality for a reason…to be loved and enjoyed and cherished. If it was only procreation, then why wouldn’t human females go into heat and those pheromones drive males into uncontrollable lust and we f*ck without being able to control ourselves like most mammals?

And why, prey tell, would the prostate, on average, be located about five to six inches inside the rectum and the average erect penis be five to six inches long if the Universe hadn’t had a reason for it? Because you know there is an old gay saying that goes, “If God had meant for men to be f*cked He would have put a hole in his ass.”

I also believe that God has a sense of humor. What else could explain the duck billed platypus?

All that is meant to say that I hope you have the sense of humor to enjoy what lies behind the cut.

But click at your own risk! There are VERY Work Unsafe Pictures Beyond! Enter at you own risk! And I hope you enjoy!

FURRY FRIDAY: Man’s Best Friend, Part Three

Furry men and their furry friends has been a popular feature here at Furry Friday, and I have a ton of wonderful pictures. It gave me some good excuses to do yet another “Man’s Best Friend.” And I still have a tone of pictures I haven’t used. It was really difficult to whittle them down to ten pictures + three weeks = 30 pictures.

Let me know if you want to see more! But it won’t be next week! I have something very special planned! But for that, you’ll just have to wait to see!
