As a loyal member of the Beyhive, I, like many, am still seething about the results from this year’s Grammy Award Ceremony. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of the British songstress Adele. I often find her lyrics to be emotionally impactful and her voice to be an amazing rarity in today’s music industry. With that said, there is no way that 25 was better than the cultural phenomenon Lemonade. Heck, Adele herself even admitted that.
Given the fact pride season is about to be in full swing, I decided to share some do’s and don’ts for those planning to go. While I won’t pretend this is an exhaustive list, it is one that reflects some things I think are important based on my experiences, or those of folks I know. So let’s jump right on in.
As I’ve already shared in previous posts, when I first came out to my gay bestie, he gave me what I call my “Gay Immersion” course. He educated me on gay social networks like BGC Live and Adam4Adam (BGC/A4A). He introduced me to the good, bad, and ugly of the gay club scene (Gay Clubbing). And he showed me my first gay television shows in Noah’s Arc and The DL Chronicles, and first gay film in Noah’s Arc: Jumping the Broom. Besides the aforementioned things, he also gave me lessons on some slightly more important aspects of gay culture.
