                A Day In Gay America , Nov. 9, 2012


A Day In Gay America is a project initiated The Advocate Magazine. I recall reading that the advocate is the oldest Gay Publication in the United States. Every year they ask LGBT folks all over the Nation to submit photos of themselves taken on a date. This year it was November 9,2012 . The photo here is our submission.
Some submit photos of them at work, some submit photos of themselves with their partner and some submit photos of themselves with their children. Real people living real lives are emphasized. There are many categories. We are with Mr. Kobe, our beloved dog adopted from The Animal Welfare Shelter, formally NCASPCA.  LGBT folks are represented in every profession. This is the second year we have submitted and are were again accepted for publication. We don't hide our sexuality. We hope that our participating may help  encourage someone to have a life where they can be who they are. We don't hide who we are and if you have a problem with homosexuality, it is your problem. If you think we are easy marks, don't test it. We have been to the rodeo !
