One of Twenty



Last week, Southern Voice began a two-part series profiling 20 young gay leaders taking the city into the next generation, as part of the newspaper’s leap into its 20th year. This week, we introduce the rest of the best, ranging from a transgender rights attorney to an eclectic performer whose unique style is a hit within the local gay entertainment field. Among this 20 is my friend, Craig Stewart, whose play A Day In the Life made a triumphant return to Atlanta. Oh yeah, I myself was featured as one of twenty....

What, about being a “boggler” qualifies him to be a “Gay leader” in a city he’s lived in less than a year and have no real roots to? I think SOVO needed a “Colored” or needs to look up the word leader…

I was accused of “hating” for bringing up what I think to be a very valid point, that is: I can't say I would follow someone for writing a blog. The problem is there are not enough real Black Gay leaders so the white media is forced to put any black gay man out there. It reminds me of conversation I had with an graduate school admissions consular once, In there quest for "diversity they are always looking to admit qualified gay black men, problem is they just cant find any will to be out.... Same here when you can't find what you are looking for people tend to take what they can get. In this case just a guy that has not done much but writes online has lots of sex and parties alot. That's all I get about him based on his writings, and that's just not enough to be a leader... No hate.

If you would have taken the time to read the article you would see it was about young gays in atlana who are taking the city into the next generation. Everyone knows the influence and media power of blogs and the audience of blogs.. which is just one way to take the city and the SoVo into the next generation.

Not sure if you know this C. Baptiste-Williams or not but I have for several years and maybe you arent privy to his other activities in atlanta and elsewhere.

And when you say no roots to.. he has lived in Atlanta before moving to DC.
