Yes, Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at QueerLandia, and it’s easy to say, but not necessarily for the many, who may be single, and not welcomed by family, and if you are invited to the annual feast, the reception may be close to chilling…
Recently, as I was surfin the net the other day, I stumbled across a short but sweet little posting that reminded me, not only of my coming out, but the countless number of other gay peoples stories, good or bad, of what it was like, what happened, and what it’s like now.

Recently, I was cruising thru the articles and stories over the Windy City Times, which covers a lot of the Chicago, Illinois’ area, which shouldn’t be too surprising, since I am from the state, and I came across a cool video speaking of equality, where just five average people, no different than most, who just want to go to the ballgame with their friends, be accepted by others and live their lives the best way they know how.

So I’m definitely in a foul mood this morning. The full reality of losing the Senate to the Republicans last night hasn’t set in but I’m in hurry to wrap my brains around that at the moment. On the lighter side of the gay universe I wanted to shout out and remind everyone that openly gay, and QL-darling, Matt Bomer is making his 6th and final season debut as Neal Caffrey in White Collar tomorrow night on the USA Network.
Sometimes I forget technology is a thing. LOL. Now that all of the blogs I run and manage are on the downloadable version of WordPress, and I have complete and direct access to our content and user database, it makes it really easy to make big moves, and big decisions, in a fraction of the time it used to. Sometimes I forget that technology really is supposed to make our lives easier.
