For the purposes of this blog we’ll call him “John Doe” because he still lives in Fresno and still knows some people I know and I don’t want to drudge up old drama. John and I had a big disagreement around how he handled his HIV status and I was reminded of him last week when an Atlanta pastor was caught sleeping with women in his church and knowingly spreading HIV.
White Collar, on USA Network, is starting its final season on November 6th. We are big fans of Matt Bomer here on QL and so our readers.
So as part of the process of moving QL to our server space and the downloadable version of WordPress it’s give me a chance to see review and edit some of our content and pages.

Matt Bomer has long been a QL favorite and I definitely want to keep up that trend on Queer Landia 4.0. Not only is he a dreamy and talented actor, he is out and proud and more than does is part in helping keep gay actors in a positive light.
