I was going through some of my photos from last summer and found this one. As I looked at it I realized that it represents so much in my life. Most of the time I feel quite disconnected. Not only to other people but also to myself, my past particularly. I’m always looking to “reconnect” with things in my past. Past adventures, interests, friends, and so forth. My move to SLC was just such. Hoping to reconnect with some old friends, and places that aren’t there anymore. I did find my best friend and his partner and they informed me that most of the friends we had back in the crazy days of the 80’s have died of HIV. That I kind of figured but hearing it come from them make it so real.

Well this is an interesting development. My former church has a food ministry. I was banned from helping at it some time ago for my involvement with PRIDE. Last night, Lorrraine, my fiance, was told that she was seen in a video marching with Mormon’s Building Bridges in the PRIDE parade and then was promptly asked not to come back as well. Funny, I know my former church’s stand on Mormonism and they never minded her helping out even though she was LDS. But now that she has associated herself with Gay Pride (and me of course) she isn’t welcome. Honestly, I don’t care what anyone thinks of me but I am more than a little upset that they are punishing her for supporting me and my gay pride friends. And I really don’t understand the double standard here.
