Back In The Saddle, The Gay Guru Rides Again

Two days in a row, a very good sign. First a big THANK YOU to all who have sent nice thoughts and wishes on my return. I have missed all of you as well, or I would not have decided to come back. I have been perusing some of your blogs, sites, etc. and it seems as though you all have been busy while I was gone, LOL. I am looking forward to the ride again, and hopefully take you on an exciting and informative journey as well.

So one of the things that kept me busy on my hiatus from the GG blog, was my membership in the Stonewall Democrats. As most of you know, I am a political junkie, who happens to be Democrat with some Independent leanings as well. The Stonewall Democrats is a great organization that keeps me informed of the GLBT issues before Congress, and at the local level, it keeps me up to date on friends and foes in the immediate area of the Home State here in NE Ohio. One of things I am currently watching, is New Hampshire. Of course known as an early bellwether primary state that lets it's voters vote along ANY party lines, it could prove a bit interesting in that, New Hampshire is Preparing For Civil Unions. Civil Unions will be come legal in the state January. Couples entering civil unions will have the same rights, responsibilities and obligations as married couples. Same-sex unions from other states also would be recognized if they were legal in the state where they were performed A new license has been created for civil unions and will be available at local clerk's offices in towns and cities across the state.

Looking for the perfect gift for the Gay Guru this holiday season, or anyone else that needs some sheer fun or a change in their bigoted attitudes? How about the recently released DVD of "Hairspray" the movie musical. I gotta tell you, if you havent seen this movie yet, what the heck are you waiting for?? The movie has something for everyone, and the DVD is packed full of extras, amost 2 extra hours worth, (plus more if you buy it at Walmart.) For those looking for the gay experience, you gotta cast crammed full of the who's who of whispered about actors that are supposedly gay. John Travolta drags it up as bigger than life mama Edna Turnbladt. Queen Latifah shows us her rhythm and blues as Motormouth MaeBell. Cutie and a half Zac Efron as Linc Larkin. If you are not familiar with the plot of the movie, Tracy Turnbladt is a big girl with big hair and a passion for dancing. Her dream of dancing on Baltimore's local "Corny Collins Show", comes true, but also opens her eyes to the racial bigotry of the time and the age old prejudice of chubby people and those that are "different". Through lots of singing and dancing, Tracy takes on "the man", and tries to bring integration to the baltimore dance scene. You gotta get this DVD, and if you get an extra, send it over GG's way, I'll be a happy camper, lol.

I'll be coming back slow but sure blogger's good to be back, and check in on me when you can.........GG
