Vendetta Against Gangs: Prison Or Otherwise

I hate gangs. It’s not just that gangs are violent, it’s the entire lifestyle. Many gang members are raised in that lifestyle to idolize those they fear. Gangs serve two masters; money and power. As far as many of them are concerned you cannot have one without the other. What I legitimately hate about them …

Wanted: Drag Mother For This Up And Coming Queen!

I have always wanted to do drag. When I was a little boy I was introduced to the movie “To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar”, If you are not familiar, I am deducting Princess points!! When I watched that movie it was like watching the bible for me. It was everything that I …

Marching Where Your Not Welcome: Are You Willing To Go Where Your Hated?

I remember when I finally got to go to the first Pride event here in prison. Different racial and religious groups tried to sign up for the event first so that they could block all of us LGBT from going. It worked for the most part I might add. Out of 250 spaces, only 45 …

Then I found myself with everything gone and it was the best thing that could have happened to me. I had to find myself without …

Prison Gays Being Gay For Survival: Shocking How Often It Happens

I run into men in prison that are “gay for the stay”. That has always been the case though. Talk to any old school correction officer in any prison and they will tell you the same thing. They could often point out as the new arrivals stepped off the chain bus who was going to …

Slowing The Roll: Time For A Break

There is a proverb that says “A wise man forsees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished”. To me that says that if you make a mistake once, don’t do it again. If you see history repeating itself in an unpleasant way, then stop. I know that the LGBT community …

Coffee Tastes Better From A Mug & Other Life Lessons

Prison isn’t designed to be this welcoming place with all the comforts of home. It sucks. Anyone who thinks that prison is to easy, come spend a year or two here and see if you don’t start thinking the exact opposite. Theoretically prison is this place where you come to rehabilitate. So long as nothing …

Marriage Is Not The Equivalency Of Equality

I believe in the unity of marriage between two souls for the length of ones life. Having said that, I do not believe that being able to marry as a gay person is the same as being equal too. In fact, there is a big part of me that is thinking the opposite as of …
