Was Trump coked up during the debate?   Back in the 1980s, I was in the film production business. I directed commercials and short films for commercial clients. It was a fun business, but very intense, and it was also rife with cocaine. Some clients expected it as part of the production process, some suppliers […]

Proving a point in a blue polo

I recently came across an article online talking about gender inequality, and as someone who sees himself as a fair guy and a reasonable thinker, I didn’t quite understand how someone could be treated so differently based solely on their gender. I try to treat everyone I come in contact with the same — with […]

Raising HIV awareness among Latinos I graduated college in 1992, the same year I tested HIV-positive. Sometime in the late ’90s, I reconnected with a college friend. He was actually a friend with benefits, so I was quite happy when he tracked me down, which wasn’t that easy back then — at least com-pared with […]

We need 2 strong parties

Posted on 16 Sep 2016 at 9:25am

Why this Democrat wants a strong Republican Party I’ve been a Democrat all my life. I believe in the party’s values; I’m pleased when its candidates win elections, and I’m persuaded the country is better off when Democratic ideas get a fair shake in the public arena. But none of this means that I favor […]

I am in Paris this week on vacation.  My partner, Patrick, and I are having a great time doing the tourist thing. And mandatory with that experience is visiting the Palace of Versailles. How could a gay man miss that? We arrived in Versailles after a short train ride, and walked to the gates of […]

  Anthony Weiner is gross. The former Congressman who resigned in disgrace after he was caught sharing photos of his crotch on social media is at it again, and this time one of the crotch shots includes his sleeping four-year-old son in the bed next to him. While nobody is implying that Weiner has molested […]

Religion run amok

  In the interest of full disclosure, I’m not particularly religious. I’m more philosophical when it comes to higher powers. I’ll not bore you with the details of my beliefs, because this isn’t the venue and because my beliefs are mine and don’t — and shouldn’t — affect you. But lately, it seems that some […]

Kim, Donald and the decisions we make

Posted on 26 Aug 2016 at 7:30am

Being a reality star doesn’t qualify you as an entertainer nor as president   In modern times, we have the luxury of witnessing history being made through mass and social media. We can watch a presidential candidate’s every move on the campaign trail or see our favorite reality stars’ lives play out on camera, whether […]

Going home

Posted on 19 Aug 2016 at 7:50am

  I was born and raised in Southern California — Long Beach, to be specific. I lived and worked there from birth until I was about 20. My first radio job took me to Jackson, Wyo., and I’ve never looked back. OK, I’ve taken a few peeks, but I never moved back. When I think […]
