"I Haven’t Had a Chance to Grieve Since I Got the Phone Call."
RIP Julion Evans-Capers
In a TMZ video interview released on August 15, 2013, WWE wrestler Darren Young (b. 1983) publicly discussed his homosexuality. Thus Young became the first WWE star wrestler ever to come out while still signed to a major promotion. WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) wrestlers Pat Patterson, Chris Kanyon & Orlando Jordan had come out as gay or bisexual after leaving the company or retiring. Darren Young (real name Fredrick Douglas Rosser III) has been in a relationship with his partner Nick Villa for more than two years. The couple resides in Miami.

I’m going to start a partners features on this blog. The set up I’m thinking is 2-3 photos of partners, some basic info names, city, etc and some questions about the partners and their lives.
I’m hoping to roll the first one out in a couple weeks. If you are interested, send a message to this blog with your contact info (email preferably) and I will start the process.
Thanks! Feel free to share to people who might be interested in being part of the project!

Hello beloved community,
It’s me again. Thanks to the generosity of my friends, family, and even people I’ve never met, I have been able to raise $460 for my participation in the Tamarindo Half Marathon benefiting Housing Works. I am turning 22 this weekend (#virgo) and what better way to celebrate than to support this important cause?
What exactly does the money I raise do? For one, it will support fierce advocacy to end both homelessness and AIDS, like the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) that will legally protect transgender and gender non-conforming people in housing, jobs, and public accommodations in New York and the passage of New York State legislation that would cap the rents of approximately 10,000 poor New Yorkers with AIDS who receive housing subsidies from New York City.
Please say happy birthday to me in the form of a tax-deductible donation to Housing Works, and together we will have an AIDS-free New York by 2020.
