Hi all, I'm still job interviewing and I feel I'm getting close. As I mentioned last time, I do have a radio gig at an NJ University which I'm really enjoying. I really wanted to find a job before the holidays because as we all know once the ...

Bumpers, Part 3 - A Picture That Bumped Me

I love to play the piano. I can’t remember a time before I played the piano and apparently I come from a line of piano players. When I started playing the piano around age 4, I only knew that my sister was taking piano lessons, that my mom ...

Well folks, tomorrow's the big move to New Jersey! I'm very excited to be returning home again after being away 15 years. I'm trying to line up work but it looks like it will also be a struggle. I was hoping for radio work but so far after ...

Baby's First Pride

I spent a lovely evening on the streets of Philly last night, dancing & drinking with the family. My new family. All of the queens and the queers who have adopted me in my new life. There was history in the air, and much joy. Fifty years ago my ...

Celebrating My Dad

I’ve often wondered if all dads were like my dad. When I was little, I thought my dad knew everything. He could do anything. Build anything. Fix anything. That made it all the more difficult to see him as he passed the age of ninety, and his ...

Is Loving This Man Going to Work?

Hi Cousin Butchie, I hope you are not offended by my question, but it's not one I can easily share with my friends or my family. At least, I don't think I can. When I was three years old, my dad died. Three years later, when I was six my mom had a ...

Playlist of my Gay Life

There's a cute little LGBTQ space in my Dad's hometown. And I started going to karaoke there about six months before the urge to be out and open was so strong. I'm only in town two or so times a year, so it seemed like a sort of vacation to hang out ...

Drag me to Truth

My wife said it would make me feel better. Turns out she was right. As usual. I had been sick, I don't even remember with what. It was 2011. I was newly hired at my job, a freshly minted PhD with an incredibly rare and precious tenure-track job. I ...

Whoa! More like Woe!

The Tinder boy was already an hour late. It was my first connection on the dating app and I really should have known better. The chatting had only been so-so, but his picture was cute, and what I knew about him seemed appealing. I had been advised ...

Rainbow Connection

The drag queen decided she was going to teach me to sing. Two weeks ago, during my first visit to the Gayborhood I met this fierce lady, name of Carmen Can-Too. We've become close since then. I was in her apartment on a Saturday night with a ...

Coming Out at Middle Age

The voices have been calling me a very long time. Those queer voices (we contain multitudes, so there's never just one). Calling me home. I pretended I didn't hear them for a long time. Explored what I could. Admired what I could take in of gay ...

Beware! Back Again.... Gay Pride in February!

Hello, Cousin Butchie, I come from a large Italian family and whenever we get together someone will ask me what "Gay Pride" is all about and what there is to be proud of. Generally it's a uncle or cousin who says something stupid like "I'm ...
