Several years ago, Porsche took over the grounds of the old shuttered Ford factory and had a contingent of rainbow Porsches in the parade.

Scenes from the rainy Atlanta Pride parade yesterday.

The last one is me. Yeah, I'm "one of those." 🤷‍♂️😆

In 1991, at age 15, I came out as gay to a close friend. Despite the cultural paranoia of the time, he fully accepted me as I am.

Not everyone has the privilege of that kind of acceptance. But if you can be out, come out. There's great strength in numbers.

Some pics from this past weekend. I ended up scraping the footpegs four times... Looks like I've gotten fast enough that I need to start shifting my body weight more to reduce lean angle.

Some prefer the more scenic roads in the area; this weekend I wanted the challenge instead.

President Carter, you were too good for us as President, and you're far too good for us today. We didn't deserve you.

Our national political conversation has turned a corner. Reached a milestone. Crossed a threshold. And other metaphors.

Third time taking a trip up this 38% grade hill, which requires a wide turn at the top without stopping to make it through successfully.

...Oops, didn't turn as wide as I should have. 5 mph tipover in the shoulder.

Need a new mirror now, but everything else is totally unhurt.
