So I was poking around doing some reading and gathering my thoughts this morning for a Veterans Day post and I found this video. While we are enjoying a lot of good news and progress in the fight for marriage equality these days it’s good to keep in mind that we have so much more work to do.
I don’t know about you, but it’s happened to me more than once in my life, as well a few of the people I know, including some close friends, that while you are just being who you are, some friend, relative, or fellow worker comes up and says “when are you going to settle down with some nice girl?”. Well, after a while, I just get tired from hearing it so many times, and it’s not the only thing I get tired of hearing…
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.

The Salt Lake City page of gay and gay-friendly links is up and live on the site. If you know, or come across, any links that should be up on the page please let us know. You can submit links using the form on the bottom of the page or you can email them directly to email@example.com for consideration. Our city pages will live in the left-hand column of the site for easy reference and access.
So Nate and I have recently made the decision to move the directory of U.S. links on QN back to Queer Landia. Our beta testing of the downloadable version over at QN in the background has been a great learning experience for us but it’ll be easier on our volunteer team of writers to concentrate and focus on one big blog.
Something that got lost in the shuffle and the white hot media glare that was Ray Rice was Michael Sam. He was picked up as a practice squad player several weeks ago by the Dallas Cowboys but was cut last week. Some tried to attach some conspiracy to it because he is openly gay but it seems to really have been purely a football decision.
