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.  
In addition, the money I raise will fund life-saving services such as housing, medical and dental care, legal services, job training, mental health services, and care management. 
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. 
Love,

Thank you so much for this. I want to send out a message to other queer men of color in relationships who have been hurt by white guys trying to come between them. Petty white men will never know what our love is like and I wish you love, strength, and healing. <3

Hey fam!

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!

Love,
