Honoring Those Who Died In 9/11 Will Be Different This Year

September 11th events in the CSRA

It seems as though everything that’s happening this year is different, and now this. 

They won’t be the packed, lengthy events of anniversaries past, but organizers of 9/11 memorial ceremonies near Shanksville, Pa., and in New York City say they’ve worked to preserve the solemnity and dignified grandeur of such a significant occasion — even as they try to keep audiences safe from COVID-19.

I’m not going to try to analyze all the inconsistencies of COVID in this post. But certain things just don’t add up. 

The important thing right now is to remember and to honor all the heroes of 9/11. And to never forget what happened that day. 

Here’s the link to more. 

LGBTQ Sex Education in England

This is something that people rarely even think about. Most straight kids get the facts of life lesson at home from parents. But what about LGBTQ kids? I never got a gay facts of life lesson from my parents. One, they didn’t know I was gay. Two, they didn’t know the first thing about being gay so they couldn’t have told me much anyway. Very few straight parents know anything about gay sex or gay culture. So how in the world are they going to help LGBTQ kids learn anything valid about sex? 

So this is definitely something that’s long overdue. 

LGBTQ-inclusive sex education is now mandatory in all of England’s high schools. Starting this month, all English teenagers will learn about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer sexual health and positive relationships.

Here’s the rest.  No one ever told me anything growing up. I learned from reading, porn, and through personal experience. And it wasn’t always easy. 



“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
