We went to Albany with the New York Pride Agenda yesterday to lobby our law makers on lgbt issues. All in all it was a little bit of a clutser - but, in the end, I think, successful . Four busses rolled out of downtown Rochester at 5am!, everyone on our bus was very friendly ( It was the church bus, there was a young bus, not sure what the other two were...) We got a little bit of a primer of what to expect when we got there. Our meetings were already set up. Every Tuesday is "Lobby Day" at the State Legislature.

Albert Mohler, the President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, reads the Sunday New York Times.
It all depends on what your definition of Cooperstown sailing away is.

A very interesting article in todays Sunday Times Magazine: Young Gay Rites, by Benoit Denizet-Lewis. A look at how the right to get married, the right to be " just like every body else" is playing out with some young gay couples in Massachusetts.

Everyone wants him, at long last a new man for all the ages.
- baby boom generation: 1946-1964
- generation Jones: 1954-1964
- generation x :1965-1982
- generation y "the millennnals" :1983-1994
Historically, "the torch has passed" to a new generation when an energetic challenger faced a ruling generation that had simply lost its steam (although this spirited campaign has demonstrated Boomers still have plenty of steam) or one whose governing paradigm was repudiated by the voters as with Franklin Roosevelt's 1932 landslide rejecting the disastrous laissez-faire policies of that era"

I was wrong.
My very good friend over at Joe.my.god. ( don't know him from Adam, but it's my blog, there for he is my vgf) posted this- ( as I guess has a large part of the free blogging world, I see a talk show in the works for the boys) . Neil and I noticed it too, last night during Senator Obama's speech. It had to have been planned. Is there a really big metro-sexual, quasi gay, tight shirt wearing A&F vote to be had in Indiana?

I love Bollywood.
There , I've said it: "Hello, My name is Kyle, and I love the Bollywood" Every time Neil goes on one of his "save the world for the teachers/gay episcopalians/tree huggers/goodness knows what" meetings I have netflix send me a Bollywood movie. It is against the law, really, in India for men and women to do anything other than kiss on the cheek and hug, gingerly. SO, none of that icky stuff ( and the boys , as a rule, are very affectionate with one another.....) This was a good one! Dil Chahta Hai Sort of Jane Austin-esque but with MUCH more attractive people, disco dancing and hot dark skinned guys in tight cloths.
Lets just say it: To the American eye Bollywood Movies are as gay as a paper hat,and for the most part, I love them.
