Sexy Fingers- AIDS Awareness… July 30, 2011

The video below is a French made flash animation commercial to promote AIDS awareness & testing. It only takes one finger to test for AIDS, know your status, be responsible, get tested often if you’re a sexually active person! thank you for watching, sorry this entry is SO short, I’ve been SWAMPED with other projects, to keep up w/us and find out WTF we’ve been up to thats taking so much of our time & attention away from Vitamin Gay, follow our Autobiographical Blog/Vlog, my entertainment/comedy Blog and/or My Bliptv channel! 🙂 Vitamin Gay is actually kind of in the process of being incorporated as a Vlog segment of my comedy/entertainment review & recommendations show ‘Lets All Be Neurotic’ so if you really wanna keep up, follow one (or all ) of the links & subscribe to the RSS feed etc 😀
THANK YOU FOR READING & WATCHING! and remember GAY PRIDE!!

 

We Are Not Afraid March (rough cut of the video) July 26, 2011

Rough/unedited cut of the footage I recorded from the ‘We Are Not Afraid’ march that happened Sat. 23 July, 2011 here in Portland, Oregon. I’ll be posting a shorter, edited high lights reel at a later point in the week (when i’m not workin my ass off on three other projects all at once lol). So heres the rough footage of the march, I apologize for the shaky quality of the footage, I WAS walking at the time and I did my best to keep it as steady as possible most of the time. Also, as always, the sound is crap because my mic sucks 😛
*had to cut it up into 3 parts for length issues on youtube

 

BUSY Night July 24, 2011

My friend Lindy & me holding up the sign I made. July 23, 2011

tonight was a busy night, it starts out with my girl Wysskers texting me and asking ‘hey, did we want to meet at your place before the thing or were we meeting down town?’ and I’m like ? and she reminds me that its the ‘we are not afraid’ march tonight and it dawns on me that…its Saturday already? DOH! thankfully it didn’t start until 11pm, so we were still able to go (I didn’t get up until 8:16pm because I got to bed EXTRA late today 😛 ).
So we went down town, walked 1.41mi (I entered the route we took into the daily mile, useful site), and I was fine, until I finally found a water fountain to take a drink, which is where I slipped up on a small lip in the sidewalk and twisted my ankle, not severely, but just enough to hurt and make it swell & be painful 😛 . The march was a success, we were able to identify a bunch of new GLBT safe places (places people can go if they feel they might be in danger late at night), a number of the places were even gentlemens clubs, and their clients were all VERY polite and supportive of the march, we were very well received by just about everyone (I, personally, only over heard two negative remarks, one was an older homeless guy who said ‘you can be gay just don’t go around, being pushy…’and the rest i couldn’t understand because he started mumbling. another passerby I over heard say ‘no one cares’…to which I responded, clearly people do as there is a large group of us marching and we’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from the bar patrons we’ve passed. I doubt they heard though).
So yeah, if I don’t get around to posting a vlog video tonight I apologize as my feet are exhausted, I am exhausted, and I don’t know if I’ll be up to editing (I might later, we’ll see) but for now, I think I’m going to stretch out and watch some cartoons or something.
thanks for reading!

 

Yes, we’re gay, but… July 23, 2011

As promised, here is a brief article & video for the night, sorry I don’t have more to say today, but I got a LOT to do (chores chores chores chores) but I hope you enjoy this blurb nonetheless!
Saw this video a while back and thought of it this evening, for one reason or another it just circled through my thought cycle (thats how my mind works), and I thought I’d look it up and share it with you.  Its a group of gay guys from different cultures, ethnicities & backgrounds pointing out the fact that like ANY OTHER cultural set, we have JUST AS MUCH variety across the spectrum.  Yes there are stereotypes, like with any cultural group, but, as we all know, stereotypes never represent the full variety of what a culture has to offer.  Hope you enjoy this video as much as I do…aside from a positive message & a good point, it also has an assortment of eye candy ;). Enjoy and remember, GAY PRIDE!

Welcome To My Cell (a Vlog) July 20, 2011

Thought I’d post the Vlogs from my autobiography project I’m doing here to share w/a broader audience, may not post all of them here because not all of them have to do w/being gay/trans etc, but we’ll see what you think.  I decided to do a Vlog as sort of a cathardic way to work through some of my issues, this first one is just an intro to who I am and what I do, later we’ll be exploring anxieties, dreams/nightmares, phobias & a LOT more, sometimes its gonna be kinda dark, sometimes it might be kinda fun, it will depend on what I’m going through at the time.  Here is the first edition of Welcome To My Cell, let me know what you think.
