With President Obama's call to service with the signing of the Edward M. Kennedy National Act. I had to admit that I was putting off some kind of volunteer work. Guess I was caught up in a form of I'm too busy (so I thought). No intentions of any sort of glory or having any kind of special skills. Just a couple of hours of helping out on the Capital Area Greenbelt. The gratification of making our planet a little greener to me was more valuable than that green dollar bill could ever buy. Wether… Continue

This past Saturday evening I meet with three lovely T-gurls who were visiting from the Philly area. They had heard about what a great place Harrisburg is and wanted to come and visit. I agreed to meet at 7:30 and have dinner at Carley's. We meet had a wonderful conversation and did not leave Carley's till after 9:00. We then walked to Suba's where we meet two other members of TranscentralPA group. We all had a great time, everyone was so friendly the drinks and music was great. But what made… Continue

For our friends and family living in Md have a chance to make transgender discrimination illegal. House Bill 474 would add "gender identity" to existing protections from employment, housing, etc. Further information at www.unionvoice.org.

In recent days news articles about the possible closings of the Middletown and Elizabethtown Amtrak stations because of not being compliant with American with Disabilies Act (ADA). Not being compliant is a form of discrimination. People who have mobility issues do have the right to have accessibilty to services like Amtrak. I encourage our local elected officials to look at this and work together to find and implement solutions to this instead of allowing these stations to close.

Take the poll;
In September a statewide poll showed that more than 70% of Pennsylvanians now support some recognition of same-sex couples in Pennsylvania.
There is no legislation currently pending to allow for either marriage or civil unions for gay and lesbian couples in Pennsylvania.
What do you think? Is it time for Pennsylvania’s General Assembly to enact equality for Pennsylvania's gay and lesbian couples?
Take our poll today.… Continue

2008-the year of the economic crash, Prop 8 and the goodbye to GWB (thank God!!-don’t let the White House door hit you in the ass as you leave) and hello to a new beginning with the election of Barack Obama. It was also the year that the band My Morning Jacket graduated to the big time. A top 10 album, appearance on Saturday Night Live and to cap things off an “intimate” New Yrs Eve performance in front 15,000+ fans at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
To say the concert was great… Continue

If you are not using the letter that is currently posted, your signatures will not be sent in. The deadline for mailing the signature pages is January 12 for us to get them to Barack Obama on his first day in office.

Wellness In Giving:
No matter what you celebrate, Hanukah, Christmas, or any other Holiday where gift giving plays a big part of the day, you can get through it feeling really good inside.
This Holiday season does not have to be all about buying more stuff. Shopping in crowded department stores can leave a person feeling empty and stressed. Fighting to get the last parking space at the mall causes your blood pressure to rise and your middle finger to follow at the windshield. No one… Continue

The word Wellness brings to mind many different things to many different people. To connect us all on the same page, when I speak of wellness I mean all of the things that a person can do to stay healthy. In our GLBTQ community many of us do not take actions to keep ourselves healthy.
I do know all of this does not apply to everyone, all of the statements I am making are generalizations.
I am very interested in prevention as the first step in a wellness journey. I feel that it is much… Continue
