Since I missed the Bare Chest Calendar road trip to Palm Springs, tonight was my first public event as a “Calendar Guy”. It was a cocktail party for Gamma Mu, an organization of gay men that host week-long events in various cities. Sort of a circuit party for the “A-List”. Our job was to greet […]

Tasha’s Troubles

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

It is interesting to see this group starting to get to know each other – some are tentative, some are jumping right in. I am regularly amazed at the […]
