2011: The Year In Gay

Am I still a gay blogger? Well, I’m still a blogger. And I’m as gay as I’ve every been. But I almost hesitate to call myself a gay blogger these days. I used to blog about gay issues all the time, but the circumstances of my life have changed. Between work, family, and the limitations of being a mere mortal, I just can’t keep up.

During the day, all my blogging is work-related. So, I write about economic issues, healthcare, Medicare, Social Security, etc, and a lot of stuff that occasionally has a gay “angle” but isn’t specifically gay related. By the time I get home, have dinner with the family, do “homework time,” bedtime, pitch in on the realities of domestic life (like loading the dishwasher or folding the laundry), and do my work-related blog culling for the next morning … I’m pretty much spent.

So, there’s a lot I haven’t covered, because I just can’t. Fortunately, someone else has. Buzzfeed has a list of “40 Reasons Why 2011 Was A Great Year For Gays.” Here’s my attempt at a video compilation. (Some things I couldn’t find video for.)

I may have written about some of this stuff. Some of it I haven’t. Anyway, it all happened.
