A friend of mine is a writer. A great writer. Before we became friends I read a story he wrote called "The Giggles" that left an indelible mark in my memory of my early years in Atlanta. I remember where I was exactly when I read it. I was home with a few friends. I was lying on my couch. They were watching television. I picked up a magazine and flipped to Scott's story. After reading it I shared it with my friends. Several years later Scott and I became friends and that was one of the first things I told him; how "The Giggles" changed my life. Before I share "The Giggles" I'd like to share a story he wrote....
Behind the Smile…
I am Black
I am a man
I am Gay
I am HIV positive
I love sports
I love fashion
I love music
I love traveling
I love movies
I have been all over the world
I practice yoga regularly. It calms me, strengthens me, heals my mind, body and soul.
In the fall of 2007, I attempted suicide
Behind the smile is someone who is lost and this blog is dedicated to the journey back to myself. It’s a commentary on my life, politics, fashion, music, movies & culture.
