    My goal for 2023 is to accomplish the goals of 2022, which I should have done in 2021 because I promised them in 2020 and planned them in 2019.

    Ciao 2022

    2022 brought the LGBTQ community some emphatic highs and lows.

    The lows included Brittney Griner's arrest in Russia, Florida's Don't Say Gay law, a blizzard of anti-trans legislation across the nation, violence and threatened violence against drag events and Prides, and the murders at Club Q in Colorado.

    The highs included the Biden administration securing Griner's release, the electoral rainbow wave, and the passing of the Respect for Marriage Act.

    As to George Santos, the recent discovery that the apparently gay congressman-elect is a serial fabulist belongs in the category of the year's lows.

    Or the year's low comedy. Take your pick.

    This Week's Quote

    George Santos has updated his lie about the Pulse club shooting.

    He previously said the four victims had been his past employees.

    Now he’s claiming the four victims were going to be his future employees.

    In other words, he meant to say employee-ish.

    The Gay Pinocchio

    I moaned about Republican Congressional candidate George Santos before the 2022 midterm elections, because the openly gay Long Islander was a Trump fan, an abortion opponent, and a supporter of Florida's Don't Say Gay law. I moaned about him after he won, because he beat the openly gay Democratic candidate and flipped a critical seat.

    Turns out I'd not yet begun to moan.

    We now know Santos the candidate lied, and bigly, about his education and his employment. His claims that his grandparents escaped the Holocaust and he's Jewish are such fabrications that the Republican Jewish Coalition wants nothing to do with him.

    In an interview yesterday, Santos said he was "sorry for having embellished my resume," but he intends to be sworn in. That Bible better not be combustible.

    There are potentially more revelations ahead concerning his finances. For my part, there's only one thing I want to hear he lied about:  being gay.

  • Donned My Gay Apparel

    I'm wearing the gay Christmas socks a friend gave me last year.

    They have rainbow stripes, giant snowflakes, unicorns, Christmas trees, hearts, the works.

    I'm wearing socks that have more energy than I do.

    For a Jewish guy, I've recorded a lot of Christmas albums.

    Anniversary

    The main newspaper here in Seattle has been marking and celebrating the 10-year anniversary of same-sex marriage becoming legal in Washington state.

    The anniversary is definitely something to be celebrated. However, to me the press coverage also serves as a burning reminder that my same-sex marriage ended in same-sex divorce.

    I signed up for a marathon and fell down a manhole at mile two.

    U.S. President Joe Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law on Tuesday at a jubilant celebration that featured U.S. singer Cyndi Lauper performing "True Colors" in front of thousands of supporters on the White House lawn.
