TBT. 1986 . My history. I have always been blessed to live near the water. The beach has always been a constant in my life. As a child in the summer I would travel from our home in the Bronx out to Shirley Long Island to my grandmothers house. There we would go to a place called Fire Island. After my family moved to Long Island I would hear about a different kind of Fire Island. A place where I could be who I was born to be, a gay man. I found my way to Cherry Grove. A place filled with freedom. Freedom to do drag, have sex, experiment, and more. Years later I traveled nearby to the Pines where you were surrounded by glamorous homes and people, and you were lead like the pied piper to what they called the Tea Dance. The music set you free. I had found my beach, and I was home...
.In 2010 I found the need to preserve the history of Fire Island Pines. It became my passion project. Some attempts were made in the past, but none that were addressing the emerging younger population and in the technology that would be their own language. A language that we all have come to use called Social media and the internet. Hidden away in a closet was our history. We , the Fire Island Pines Historical Preservation Society have taken it out of the closet and it are giving it the rightful place among all gay history... #ownyourhistory# #ownyourhistory #createthefuturewiththepast #yoursmineandours #fireislandpineshistoricalpreservationsociety #

2016-17. As we begin moving onto the 2017 season I am reminded of part of our mission. That being the mentoring of our younger generation that is now discovering the Pines. The past has allowed the now to live, love, and celebrate in this land of make believe we call Fire Island. Reality shows can show a one-sided view of a nonstop party atmosphere. However, the true reality is a community filled with people, places and events that have shaped gay history. #ownyourhistory#

While in Germany I was fortunate to spend time with relatives and take in the local sights including the rural open air museum in Cloppenburg, a few miles from my ancestral home. Twenty years (!) had past since I last visted this historical gem of Lower Saxony. #german #travel #cloppenburg #lowersaxony #niedersachsen #heritage #ownyourhistory #90sfashion #betterwithage

I USE TO BE A THOT | After going through an abusive relationship you lose a sense of your identity. After all the pain I had experienced I stop respecting men (in exception to my brother). I thought by scooping down to their level I could beat them at their own game. I pretend that I didn't care about them. When deep down I was hoping that they could fix me. In my mind sex was all I was good for. They didn't have to court me nor cater to me. Respect was never required. I let them treat me the way I treated myself. At the time my reflection projected my pain. I wasn't worthy. Back then I couldn’t see myself being in love because I didn't know how to love myself. I couldn't have imagined putting my needs over the person I was sleeping with. I always put their emotions before mine. That's how I lost my identity. I slept with guys to numb the pain for years! Today’s generation would have called me a THOT; not really caring about the internal suffering I was putting myself through. People speak without helping because they want you to become their next hot topic. Having consideration for peoples actions is very few and far between. We come to the conclusion on people’s lives everyday not knowing what life has put them through. We need to be more mindful on how we treat people. You don't have to like the person’s story, but you don't have to talk shit either. Consideration and compassion goes a long way. #growth #writersofinstagram #writing #writerscommunity #love #lessons #learning #empoweringwomen #loveyourself #morethansex #sex #selflove #selfworth #vlog #vlogger #throwbackpic #thingschange #ownyourhistory #itbelingstoyou #acceptance #faith #god #belief #mondaymotivation
