My 2 Pence: Outness Levels




Outness levels have always been an interesting subject for me.

Being black and African where it is drilled into from a young age that from an African / Caribbean mentality POV, having guys as your preference will not be tolerated. It will also conjure up feelings of repulsion and digust within family members who hold this view due to the images they associate with gay people. This preference is seen as a sickness that brings shame onto the family name and is looked at as choice that should be prayed away.

So imagine, you are in your teens, twenty or in some cases older and through dating you are reconciling your attraction with like minds but with the burden of the people who you love hating a part of what makes you, you?

You begin to introvert your experiences through the need to avoid discussing your love life, in some cases avoiding family functions where as you get older, siblings peers and other family members of your generation settle down and get married while you keep them at arms length.

So the question is, can you be happy with someone who is out and accepted by their family? Or are you limited to swimming in the pond of discreet like minds carrying the weight of the world as they figure this thing out called life?

The Success Years



What up #TeamBlud. I've been gone for a minute but I've been getting my priorities in order. 

Own crib, saavy investments, getting my corporate career moving. Spending more time with my family and feeling the love. Dating people who are about their hustle with heart, taking escapades to the next level, and leaving red flag waste men in the past. 

I've also made real inroads with dope people in this life internationally who I consider my connects and take trips where I get to see the world and experience dope hospitality.

I say that to say, have a vision for how you want you life to be on your terms. Stop explaining your life to people and live it. Also don't get in your own way or compromise your vision for people who haven't earned the right for their opinion to matter or who are not where you want to be.

Simply put, life is good.
