In the past five years, SFGN has covered a number of criminal cases involving gay men accused of criminal activity.
Here’s an update on some them.
Three years have passed since SFGN published Gay Truckers: The Men, The Myth, The Medical Reality from March of 2012, about the life and work of Timothy Anderson, a gay trucker with a degree in creative writing and a desire to improve the health and healthcare of his fellow truckers.
It is a pleasure to celebrate with you SFGN’s Fifth Anniversary. How did it all start? In the late summer of 2009 I had some legal matters to discuss with my attorney, Norm Kent. That day, in his office, he told me he was considering starting a gay newspaper. I have always been militant and the idea appealed to me. According to him he needed four partners. I offered to be one of the four.
South Florida Gay News is five years old. The child of Norm Kent and Pier Angelo Guidugli, SFGN flourished at a time when many print publications went out of business.
Five years have passed since SFGN first profiled Fort Lauderdale’s Ray Boltz, who sacrificed his huge career as a Christian music star (4.5 million albums sold) when he came out of the closet to his loving and accepting wife and children, and to a music industry that promptly shunned him.
Steve Stagon invited me, in 2011, to attend and report on a presentation by medical professionals about EGRIFTA, a new drug to decrease the accumulation of interstitial (organ) fat that besets some HIV positive men.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,My working week and my Sunday rest, My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;I thought that it would last for ever: I was wrong.(Stop the Clocks by W.H. Auden)
When SFGN Publisher Norm Kent wrote an editorial piece “Adam Lambert’s GLAAD Award a Joke” we had no idea the backlash it would spawn.
Eds note: For just over a year SFGN published Ryan Dixon’s ‘My HIV Diary’ — a real time reflection of his hopes and struggles as he started his HIV medication. Here are his thoughts now.
Here’s hoping to five more years
I remember where I was then.
