Duggars "help" raise over $20,000 for LGBT youth

Duggars "help" raise over $20,000 for LGBT youth
Almost everyone is familiar with the ultra-conservative Duggar clan in Arkansas. The Duggars have a history of exploiting their many children for profit (i.e. TLC’s 19 and Counting), and most recently have revealed that they hold a place in their heart for homophobia. Though I do not believe the Duggars being homophobic was a shock... Read more »

As I’m sure everybody has heard by now, the Central Arkansas area was devastated by tornadoes yesterday. As of last count, 16 Arkansans lost their lives due to the storms. Growing up in Arkansas, I am all too aware of the devastation that Mother Nature can cause. I am very fortunate in that though I... Read more »

Kate Sullivan will always remind me of Arkansas

I was taken back to Arkansas circa 2005 when driving through downtown Chicago earlier today. Though I know Kate Sullivan co-anchors WBBM CBS 2 News, I cannot help but only remember her from KATV Channel 7 in Little Rock, Arkansas. I loved watching her anchor the news there, and, when she left, I believe she... Read more »

Huge thanks to the Rolling Meadows Library for finding a library that had Lisa Stewart’s one and only album. The album, released in 1993, did not do very well; however, it is still one of my favorites. Unfortunately, over time, I lost my copy and did not have a digital back-up. That is all rectified...

Gayest Cities in America: Few glittery shockers!

The Advocate, a gay and lesbian magazine, took it upon itself to come up with a Top 25 list of places for Gays and Lesbians. What is different about this list is that it eliminates huge metropolitan areas such as New York City, Los Angeles, and our very own Chicago. The data for the top gay, yet non-meccas, comes...

2011: A year of growth!

Last year at this time, Kyle and I were loading up a POD. We were embarking on our move to the Chicagoland area. After coming up here for Thanksgiving 2010, we made the decision to move here. I turned in my notice at work on December 10, 2010, telling them that the 29th would be... Read more »

Chicago: It's like a whole other Country!

It really is a small world! I moved here in January, and started working in February. I always talk about Arkansas to anyone that will listen. Most people I talk to have never been to Arkansas, and the few that have, have only passed through on their way to Dallas or New Orleans. So, I... Read more »

A fond farewell to one of my favorite loves...

So, I had that awkward moment that one can only have with an ex. The visit had been planned for months. I never predicted it would be weird at all. I thought it was be fun and we would rekindle what we had for a few days. However, it was awful. You know what I... Read more »

My first trip outside of Chicagoland in 8 months, 22 days

I can’t believe I have been in the Chicago area for 8 months and 21 days. It seems like forever; while at the same time feeling like yesterday. I have several posts in the work; however, I just had to explain my absence over the past week. For starters, Fred is doing better. My gangsta... Read more »
