Photos taken by me during my recent trip to New Orleans. I have travelled a few places in the south since moving to this side of the world but nothing has ever given me the nostalgia of being in New Orleans. The people carry their culture, their history and their traditions on their sleeves, there is not a hurricane strong enough to take that away. My time on New Orleans was short but beautiful. And the rain…the rain could drown you!

Camp It Up 2010

23 Aug

I’m back! Well I have been back in Atlanta for a couple of weeks now but it took me many days to recover from the time difference and to come down off the natural high that is, CAMP IT UP!  CIU was the first family camp for gay and lesbian in California and has been going strong since 1990.  I have been a senior counselor at CIU since 2006 and I have loved every minute of my time there. A one of a kind camp, CIU brings together LGBTQ families from all over the world and gives them 7 days of bliss in the redwoods of Quincy, Ca. As a lesbian CIU gives me a place to see happy and healthy LGBTQ families and to inspire their children to know that their families are more all American than apple pie and baseball.

This year was especially fun because I missed camp last year because I had just moved to Atlanta. I have so many great stories and pictures that I will post soon but I have included a video that was made by one of this years CIU art specialist, Callum. A tribute to the staff of CIU! Enjoy! (See if you can find me in the video)

I took this Photo during Pride weekend in San Francisco during the summer of 2009. I did my best to get a picture of downtown SF with no one in the street but if you have ever been to SF you know how crowded it is, I actually like the fact that there is a man looking directly into the camera.

Photo taken by me during my 2009 spring break trip to Washington DC. I love this photo because you cannot tell what year it is. Black and white is ALWAYS classic.
