  • A Day In LGBT South Florida

    A Day In LGBT South Florida

    SFGN Staff

    On November 24, 2018 SFGN assigned its photographers to capture one day in the life of South Florida’s LGBT community. We also asked our readers to submit their own photos.

    Too often in the news we read about the famous, the politicians, or the celebrities. Rarely do we hear about the people that actually make up the LGBT community – from the bartenders, waiters and hairdressers to the retirees and drag queens.

    That’s why this issue celebrates the lives of the everyday LGBT person. These photos are a reminder that the LGBT community is numerous and diverse. We like to play softball, walk our dogs, raise funds for charities, shop, work, eat and play.

    These photos show the normality of being LGBT. We are the same. All of us. We do the same thing. We live and enjoy the same lives as our straight counterparts.

    We all have more in common than we do apart. We are a part of each other.

    ... And all of you!

  • McNaught: Shared Beliefs on the Unknown

    Lincoln has been a Buddhist since he was a puppy. In his earliest romps around our lakefront property in the Adirondacks, he would stop, sit for long periods of time, and observe. In other words, he was in the moment, with his body and his mind in the same place, seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling things for the first time. It’s called “Beginner’s Mind.” You needn’t be a puppy or baby to experience it.
