  • What Dad Really Wants
    by noreply@blogger.com (Brianna Austin) on October 24, 2017 at 7:01 am

    For all those dads out there in the closet, I feel your pain. I too spent 40s in the closet before coming out. Father's Day we get ties and shirts and boxer shorts, when what we really want is pretty things that no one ever gave us. So just for you, here are some virtual gifts that you can carry in your mind's eye, and for brief moments dream of that life you long for.Read more » […]

    by noreply@blogger.com (Brianna Austin) on August 15, 2017 at 7:42 pm

    I was back in NYC for a few months in June and July, and it was so good to meet up with friends and revisit some of my old haunts. I got to hang out with Crissy, was really thrilled to get the free time to join Fran on Fire Island to see a great show. And, after  long period of inaction, I'm re-engaged in getting all my content, websites and social media organized so that I can actively start posting again.  So here is what's new.Read more » […]

    by noreply@blogger.com (Brianna Austin) on July 30, 2017 at 6:35 am

    As you all know by now, President Trump, two words that still don't seem right in the same sentence, issued a Tweet that transgender people would no longer be allowed to serve in the military.  Kristin Beck, a former Navy SEAL took exception.  Other veterans have voiced their opinions, and the Pentagon -- after the president said consulted with his generals and experts -- said they had no idea what he was talking about. So it's time once again for romper room politics.Read more » […]

    Many years ago, Johnny Carson, being the recipient of a Sally Fields practical joke, looked at her and said, "You really aren't normal are you?" She playfully responded, "Well Johnny, I guess normal is as normal does!" It was a cute punch line and yet beneath the surface made a larger statement.Read more » […]

  • it Wasn't Activists, but Rather Sports That Rattled NC's Cage
    by noreply@blogger.com (Brianna Austin) on April 2, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    We were all a bit stunned last year when North Carolina passd the infamous 'bathroom bill.'  The debate gripped the nation and spurred a national dialogue. The ideas spread across the country as 16 states had some variation of a bathroom bill of their own. Now that NC has repealed their bill, the fallout is just getting started.Read more » […]

  • Meslissa Says 'It's O.K. To Be Different'
    by noreply@blogger.com (Brianna Austin) on March 4, 2017 at 11:21 am

    Not only is it O.k. to be differnet, I've often thought -- and said -- it is preferred. When we find our individual center to transcend the standard expectations of others, it is then that people begin to see "you" and not just the shell you reside in.  I came across an inteview of Melissa the other day, and the more trans stories I read the more they are all rooted in the same beginnings -- though the journey and destination may differ.Read more » […]
