A Transgender’s Horrid High School Story

At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to a story about a transgender man names Casey Hoke, who went through some horrid harassment during his time at DuPont Manual High School, right here in the heart of Louisville Metro.

He was a senior back in 2015 when his principal, Jerry Mayes, saw him coming out of the men’s bathroom, confronted him, and began questioning him about things that were honestly none of the principals business!

The article is gut wrenching, if I do say so myself. I instantly became full of anger. First of all, if you see a ‘problem’ with a student, you take it up with the students parents, you don’t take matters into your own hands and begin questioning things in their personal life, I don’t care how old the student is.

But it doesn’t stop there. He did more than ask the student what procedures he’s had on his genitalia, — yeah you heard me correctly, he asked those kinds of questions— he also had multiple meetings with his teachers regarding the subject, even though they were already aware of Casey’s situation, due to the fact that an article about his story was posted in the school board a couple of years prior.

When asked by Casey, why any of this would concern him, all he was able to mumble out was “if I get into trouble because of you…”

excuse my French, but how fucking disgusting are we trying to be in the year 2017? Or even 2015??? Plus, if everyone literally knew about it since his freshman year and hasn’t complained, then where would the problem be? Besides in your own small minded brain? …

Anyways, In this article, you will also see that the principal also called teachers “cute” little pet names, even after they asked him not to, which made said teachers feel very uncomfortable. And let’s not even dig into the fact that he strongly opposed Manual’s Black Student Union & Gay Straight Transgender Alliance, but made sure to take full credit for.

If you ask me, I think this so called principal should be let go. He overstepped many boundaries within a single year of holding his position. He doesn’t deserve the title. He clearly has some issues he needs to work out before taking on such a big responsibility of making sure a building full of students and teachers are all well taken care of.

I’m very happy to help spread Casey’s word and to help bring light to the situations we face here in Louisville.

I had my own incidents in middle and high school, so I know it’s bigger than one school or one person. Time for Louisville to step into the new millennium.

White Washing Nazi

On Saturday, August the 12th, the world would meet its rip in history. This day held the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which was a white nationalist movement. Within minutes of the noon start time, police had the rally dispersed, but it didn’t end quickly enough, as there were many clashes between rally-goers and counter-protestors, & we mustn’t forget about the torch lit pre-rally march, which was held Friday night, that descended into violence.

During this white nationalist march, a Nazi sympathizer drove a car into a crowd of counter-protestors, killing one and injuring nineteen.

The woman killed in the crash was a 32 year old paralegal, named Heather Heyer. It’s very interesting that a woman who spends every day of her life standing up for people who can’t be heard, was at a rally, counter-protesting for all of the Americans who continue to go unheard. I hope she rests in heavenly peace.
Her murderer, you know, the 20 year old scum from Ohio that rammed his car into a crowd of people, James Alex, was charged with second degree murder.

The scene in the white house is almost as disgusting as the weekend rally. It literally took Trump two days to say anything regarding the topic, & when he did, he didn’t even give condolences or even speak the name of the poor woman that lost her life. He did, however, blame the left just as much as the right, saying that the counter-protestors were the violent ones… Yeah, it made me stumble too.
His excuse for taking so long to even speak on the topic was that he wanted to gather all of the facts before making a remark about it, which is hysterically funny, since he has never waited to gather any facts or evidence before opening his nasty mouth.

When I watched the video of the rally, it really began to set in that this is happening on our own soil. It’s no longer watching videos to see the violence overseas, now it’s just as simple as stepping outside and witnessing it all in your backyard, and that’s quite scary, like, legitimately scary. I think we will have another civil war before we have WWIII.

A lot of celebrities and well known people, like New York City Housewife, Carole Radziwill, are very unhappy with the 45th, & are not holding back what they have to say. Even the Supreme Court had a few choice words. It really is sickening how the 45th acts, & people still respect him.

God be with us all.

A Weekend With The Boys

It has officially been a week since I’ve been in Louisville, & it has been one hell of a busy week, let me tell you! But its been very nice. I’ve traveled around parts of the town and have seen the changes that have taken over the one of a kind Derby City. I haven’t done much yet, for the fact that since I’ve been in town, there has been responsibilities that had to be taken care of.

But I’m here to talk about my weekend. My Saturday was supposed to be spent with my two great friends, Jacye & Maggie, for their bridal shower since they’re getting married in less than a month! Congratulations to the soon to be married couple!

But sadly, our car broke down Friday evening. I went out to run some errands and the brake lines busted, so I didn’t have any brakes, which scared the living crap out of me, honestly!

So, my uncle, being the most unique mechanic that I’ve ever seen, came over the following morning and began going to work on it. I even stayed by his side for the entire 9 hour work process and help him as much as I could, I even kept him in good company, with great conversation and good music. We spent a total of 12 hours together, due to our intense conversations. I felt so bad, for the fact that I had to miss my friend’s bridal shower, and my uncle missed his friend’s UFC event, but I honestly feel like it was all in God’s plan for us to have that bonding moment together. It was also a great thing to work with him, because I was able to learn more about what to do on a car when something goes wrong. For once in my life, my hands got dirty! Ha-ha.

But that’s not all of it. Sunday was also a fun filled day with my other uncle. Sunday around noon, I realized that there was something wrong with my bicycle, & my other uncle, being the greatest handy man I know, said I could bring it over so he could take a look at it. We spent a good 3 hours working on it, because there was something wrong with the front gears. It was another amazing day, because I was also hands on with him, learning the tools of the trade, to make sure I can keep a future upkeep on my bike. I felt like absolute caca with him as well because he was supposed to work on his car that day, but instead he dedicated his time to helping me trying to solve my problem. Again, my hands got dirty, and I actually like it! I could used to the dirty business.

It was a great weekend, to get dirty with the guys, and to gain the knowledge that I gained. It’s going to come in handy when I’m in New Jersey by myself and won’t have them around to keep everything together for me, ha-ha.

But the best part of it all was spending the quality time with each other, & being able to have that one on one time. I also like to look at it in the way that my father has done a good job in teaching me to handle responsibilities and make sure everything is taken care of. Everything played out the way it was supposed too. I just hope I don’t have to do anymore mechanical type work for a while! Ha-ha.

How was your weekend? Was it as fun and enjoyable as mine?

Long Beach: A Day with Dad

This will be a short story, since I have covered everything in the video which is posted below!

I just want to say that this day was a truly amazing day! I forgot to mention in the one-on-one video about our pedicure trip, but you will see some of the clips during the adventure part of the video!

We traveled to Union City for Honduran breakfast, through Manhattan to get to the Long Island Rail Road, to Long Beach where we got out our pedicures then went swimming in the Ocean! Well, I went swimming, my father did not. We did both lay out in the sun though, so that’s something, ha-ha.

It was nice to feel the sand between my toes. I made sure to bury myself deep in it!

Speaking of deep in sand, while we were walking across the beach, I saw three people buried up to their face in sand, just having a gay old time. I loved it. One of the girls saw me looking and laughing, so she started laughing too and said “heyyy”, and I waved back. On some real notes, I could definitely be a beach bum!

Of course I got to see my navy & Cargo ships way out in the sea, which just completed my beautiful scenic background as I swam and laid out.

There’s no beach like Long beach.

Mother’s Day Adventure: Planet Earth

This past Sunday, my father & I ventured into upstate New York to the Bear Mountain State Park.


It was my first time ever upstate, and it was the most peaceful & rejuvenating time that I’ve ever had in this region.

We live in part of the cluster of North New Jersey, so to be surrounded by tall trees, lakes, dirt, sand, wild animals, and nature itself, was just truly remarkable and long overdue.

There was a moment where we were walking along the trails, & I motioned my father to stop moving, and I just stood there to absorb all of nature’s beauty, from the scenery, to the sounds and even the smell!


I wasn’t able to spend it with my mother since she is still currently stationed in Kentucky, but I definitely made sure to spend it with the all knowing mother herself, mother nature.

The image you see first, is the very first picture I took when we arrived. This was my healing spot. I literally stayed here for 30 minutes, just staring at the mountain and the lake. Sadly, no swimming is allowed in the lake, but you can get on a paddle boat and enjoy the lake that way.


It definitely gave me a new perspective on how we treat the earth, though it may be corny, I think we can all do better as residents of this world, to treat it better. It also let me know that no matter how ugly the world may seem, that doesn’t stop nature from blossoming into beautiful landscapes.


Here is my YouTube video about the adventures! Be sure to enjoy it!

Thunder Over Louisville 2017

You all know this one is going to be special to me, because this is my hometown. 

Today marks the day of the yearly Thunder Over Louisville! I’m so sad that I Will be missing it two years in a row! The firework show turns 27 this year! 

Some of you all may be asking yourself “what the hell is thunder over Louisville?” Well, I have the answers to that! Thunder Over Louisville is an event that takes part in the Kentucky derby. It’s started at 2:30 this afternoon, and will end around 10 tonight. During the day you are deafened by fascinating air shows and at night, usually around 9-9:30, the city is lit up on the Ohio river due to amazing firework displays. There’s also great music, delicious “fair style” foods, beers, bands, rides, and literally thousands of people on both the Kentucky side and the Indiana side. It basically kicks off the start of the Derby, since it’s a two week celebration. This year marks the 143rd Derby, so it’s kind of a big deal! 😜😉

Celebrities even come to town to enjoy the festivities that the Kentucky Derby brings to the lovely city of Louisville. We have thunder Over Louisville, the Pegasus Parade, the Steamboat Race, the Balloon Glow and Balloon Race, along with the Derby itself, and so much more. It’s literally the most expensive and most extravagant festival we hold in Louisville. 

You definitely want to get your hands on a Pegasus pin, because that gets you into all of the event special locations with no charge. For example, with a Pegasus pin in hand, you gain access to the great lawn on the riverfront, which is one of the best places to be during the show. 

I’m going to compare Thunder Over Louisville to Mardu Gras, only for the fact that you have such a gargantuan crowd of drunk people trying to get around and enjoy themselves! 😂 

There are a couple of downfalls, first being the weather if you’re not prepared. It can be very chilly on the riverfront, so a jacket and blanket are always recommended. Secondly, the bathroom situation! We’ve all used porter potties before, but the line to get into one can be very annoying, especially if you need to go asap. You’d be better off renting a location in one of the skyscrapers for a more convenient bathroom situation if you’re one of the frequent “goers.” Thirdly, TRAFFIC! Oh my lanta! Traffic is one of the worst things to deal with during thunder. It usually takes all of 3 hours to get home, depending on where you’re staying. Lastly, reception. Don’t think you’re going to go down there and have signal to be all over social media and making phone calls, because you won’t. The crowd gets so big that the towers literally get over powered. So save those intense moments for when you have a bar or two, because I guarantee they won’t last long! 

It’s worth it though. It’s a beautiful experience that I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing with my family and friends over the years. There really is no other festival like it.

The 13 Reasons Why… 

You may have heard abou the new Netflix original series 13 Reasons why, since it’s been the talk of all social media outlets since it’s premier on March 31st. I have many points to this topic, so I’m going to try and make it as organized as possible, just bare with me. 

First, a summary of the show’s first season.. we kick off with the suicide of a high school sophomore named Hannah Baker, who, upon her death, made 13 cassette tapes, referring to the 13 people who helped “aid” in her suicidal death, whether it was by bullying, raping, or not doing enough to save her from her depression. Each episode focuses on a cassette; 13 suspects, 13 cassettes, 13 episodes. 

I will say that this show is very intense, so if you can’t handle watching explicit scenes or rape and suicide, then this show probably isn’t for you. 

The description of the story are spot on, if I do say so myself. It understands and defines the levels of tearing someone a part, starting with the breaking of ones heart, to destroying ones reputation, onto breaking of ones spirit, ending with breaking ones soul, which results in ending ones life. 

There has been so much negative speculation on the show, by people saying that it’s over dramatized and highly inaccurate. Speculation has also been made saying that it highly fantasizes the outcome of someone committing suicide. Well, here is why I call absolute bullshit on that:

  1. Many shows often have at least ONE episode that fantasizes suicide where a character will “die” to see the outcome of how the lives of others are effected, and yet everyone on this planet doesn’t bat an eye. 
  2. How in the hell can one overly dramatize something as real life as this? 
  3. Suicide: can someone explain to me how one is supposed to react when suicidal? I mean I just don’t think people really pay attention to real life anymore. Robin Williams is a perfect example. He gave off the persona that he was as happy as anyone could possibly be, yet fought depression so bad that he couldn’t deal with it anymore and took his own life. 
  4. Rape: please, don’t even start with me. The first rape victim became an alcoholic and drug user because of it. Which, if you look at real life statistics, I’d say that’s pretty spot on. As for the other rape victim? Well, that was the tipping point for her suicide. 
  5. Name calling and fabrication: 1 in 3 people are called something derogatory, and fabricated upon, ESPECIALLY while in grade school. I know that better than anyone else. I was the gay queer that had a crush on every single guy in the neighborhood, just because I was openly gay. Shit talking is the number one thing that lives in those adolescent years. Even adults do it, the workplace is full of it. Hence the saying “this is so high school”. 
  6. Being sexualized: seriously? This was over dramatized? Our entire nation is based upon men and women being attractive and sexually appealing. That’s why blonde hair and blue eyes are a thing, because that’s what America wants. It’s all over our magazines, newspapers and even our televisions. 

I have never seen something focus on the very structure of suicide, and get it so nearly spot on. I say nearly, for the fact that depression comes in many different shapes and sizes. Someone can be depressed by life changing circumstances, while the other could be depressed due to grief or medical conditions. So, depression in this series is loosely explored and defined, but it gives us a better idea and understanding: you really don’t know what someone is going through. 

Now, I will not lie, this show did piss me off, very much. In the show, everyone wanted to keep it a secret, per Hannah’s request. But this grew more and more unbearable for her lover, Clay Jensen. He wanted so bad to just out everybody, and grew the courage to try do to so, very often, but every time, someone would tell him no, and he would basically be like “ok”, which is stupid, because in real life, anyone would turn in the evidence to get the story out there, or at least I would. 

I was also perturbed when all of the suspects, who were undoubtedly guilty, would constantly blame the dead girl. Yeah, it’s so easy to blame someone who is no longer breathing right? This more or less bothered me because it reminds of the real world. On the news today you can hear people say “well, if she wasn’t wearing a skirt or wearing a tank top then she wouldn’t have been raped,” or something along the line of “boys will be boys.” But don’t let it fool you, this even happens in the show! At the end, the counselor tells Hannah to “just move on” when she’s opening up about being raped. I know it’s just a show, but I literally wanted to jump through my television and beat his face myself. 

Which leads me to my next point. 

This show covers so much real life in today’s perspective that it’s not even funny. You have two gay fathers raising an adopted daughter, you have a meth head mother who chooses her abusive boyfriend over her son, you have the perfect rich kid who can buy his way out of everything, you have the kid who has a cop for a parent and therefore is untouched, you have lesbian as well as gay couples. You have the family owned business being overtaken by the big corporation. There is even a point in the show where they point out the hatred battles going on in the world. It graphs out what really goes on the the world today, and it’s so realistic, and I think that’s what really gets under people’s skin. 

What really want to know is how they got the “suicide” wrong? So many speculators say it’s not accurate. But how? Because she cut her wrists the right way? Or was it because her reasonings don’t add up to their standards? Or maybe it was the fact that people believe they’re (suicidals) going to do what they want so why bother trying? These are questions that I will probably never get the answer to. But I think this show is a great view, and I feel that it can be very educational. I know we are imperfect beings, but at some point, somewhere, we gotta see a change. Parents rather raise their kids being mean, vicious, murderers, instead of raising them with love, compassion and understanding. 

I’m not asking you to agree with me. But I’m asking you to take a look for yourself. I’d rather do my best to help someone, than to go on while they continue to suffer. Don’t be like the kids

I will advise another warning though, if you do watch the show. The rape and suicide scenes are very real-like, and very intense. Proceed with caution.

Chemical Warfare on Idlib

WARNING ⚠️! SCENES OF GRAPGIC NATURE AND DEAD CHILDEN! MATURE GUIDENCE RECOMMENDED!

For most people in the world, this passed Tuesday was just another day of the week, but for the community of Idlib, Tuesday would be a dark day, full of pain, sadness, and death. 

Two men receiving oxygen after the air strike, 04/17
On Tuesday, a very devastating chemical airstike was dropped over the rebel-held province of Idlib, in the town of Khan Sheikhoun. The civil war in Syria has been going on for six years now, and this attack may have just fueled some very intense fires. The chemical attack has left dozens of people – including children – dead or critically injured. 
So far, upwards of 80 people have been killed due to the air strike, an air strike In which many speculators say was played out by the Syrian army. The Syrian army has denied these accusations. Less than 24 hours after the first chemical air strike, more air strikes reportedly started hitting the same part of town. Speculation points to the Syrian army due to the fact that towns like the province of Idlib, Are held by rebels opposing Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s regime.

Idlib, Syria

 The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights first said at least 58 people, among them 11 children, passed out from inhaling the toxic chemicals released into the air. Many others died later after the initial exposure.

The chemical, which the World Health Organization said could be a nerve agent, caused many victims to choke, foam at the mouth, and writhe in pain before passing out. “It was like a winter fog,” Mariam Abu Khalil, a teenager who saw several residents of her hometown die, told The New York Times.

Bodies after the chemical air strike 04/17
Turkey said it dispatched 30 ambulances to Idlib following chlorine gas attacks in the northwestern province, the Turkish Anadolu news agency reported. Syrian opposition health minister Firas Jundi put the death toll at more than 100 civilians and said 500 others, mostly children, were sickened or burned by the chemicals. It is the largest chemical attack in Syria since August 2013, when sarin gas killed hundreds of civilians in Ghouta near Damascus. 


When asked what changes might be expected in the world regarding chemical weapons given the gas attack, one Syria expert said it was a bit late to ask such a question.

“Supposedly the international community was supposed to or should have removed all chemical weapons in 2013 according to the famous Russian-American agreement that apparently was not fulfilled, which raises a question about the monitoring mechanisms,” Joseph Bahout of the Washington-based Carnegie Endowment for International Peace told USA TODAY.

The civil war that has left more than 450,000 Syrians dead as well as 12 million Syrians displaced from their homes, shows no signs of letting up any time soon.

My heart literally breaks for this town. So many people’s lives lost, including innocent children, who have nothing to do with the screwed up decisions the adults of any and every nation/country make. I hope that one day we really find world peace.

Apple Releasing Red Models for HIV Awareness

I have loved Apple for many years and for many reasons. But this one just tops it all off! 

Friday, march 24th, Apple will be releasing the new iPhone color, which will be the sixth color option when purchasing a model. They decided on the red concept due to their partnership with the RED campaign, which helps raise awareness as well as profit for HIV/AIDS. 

Due to the 11 year partnership between Apple and the RED campaign, Apple will be releasing a red iPod nano as well as the red iPhone 7 models. (Damn! I have a 6S plus) but we cannot deny that they have carried on this legacy during the whole decade. Back in 2006, Apple released a special edition red iPod, then they dropped the red beats headphones, and even the red smart battery cases. 

If you want to get your hands on the new phone, you can purchase it online Friday, or pick one up in a retail store next week. You’ll be stylish and supporting a fantastic cause! 

According to Apple, any and every purchase of the Red models will contribute to the global fund to support HIV/AIDS programs. 

Releasing the red iPhone was a “nice recognition of our partnership with the (RED) team in fighting HIV and AIDs,” said Apple’s VP of marketing, Greg Joswiak.

The red iPhone 7 will cost at least $749. According to Mashable, the red iPhone 7 Plus will come in 128 GB and 256 GB configurations and set you back $749 and $849, respectively, while the 7 Plus will set you back $869 and $969 for the same configurations.

It must also be known that these will be limited! Grab a limited edition red model while you can!

Casey Anthony: Murder or Accident? 

MURDER! Duh! but her Judge thinks different… Now, the details.

Look, I can take a lot of crazy ideas, but this particular one, I cannot let it register. I was a huge follower in the case of Casey Anthony, aka tot mom, who murdered her beautiful daughter, Caylee Anthony back in 2008. I will say that this is a story that I fell in love with, and I have continued to follow over the years, because I would love to get into this woman’s mind to see what would cause her to do this to her daughter. I would honestly love to just hear her admit that she did it, but I won’t hold my breath with that one.

It’s bad enough that back in 2011, Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering her two-year old child. Instead, they charged her with four misdemeanor counts of lying to police. Now the retired Orange County Judge Belvin Perry, who presided over her case, says that Casey Anthony probably killed her daughter, but by accident… Bitch, what???

Let’s just do a small recap of what happened to the poor baby, Caylee Anthony. Back in June of 2008, Casey killed her daughter, then threw her body in the woods after riding around with her in the trunk of her car for several weeks, not far from the Anthony home, at which Caylee’s body was found months later, on December 11, 2008. Can we discuss how the poor baby was found?! Her bones were found, wrapped in one of her blankets, thrown in a damn trash bag! It was a truly insidious act of murder & neglect.

It was no lie or secret that Casey Anthony loved to party and be single, with little to no responsibilities. I mean, her daughter was last seen June 16th of 2008, & she wasn’t reported missing until July 15th of 2008, nearly a damn month after she was last seen!  Of course we can all understand the long wait, due to the fact that Casey allegedly passed her daughter from baby sitter to baby sitter while she continued to stay out and party with her at-the-time boyfriend.

There is no doubt in my mind that Casey Anthony did in fact kill her daughter, and I do not believe for one second that it was accidental. Hell, there were over 400 pieces of evidence! Including a strand of Caylee’s hair, this was found in the trunk of Casey’s car. This would make sense, since she had her body in there for so long, before throwing her into the woods like she was garbage.

It stuns me to this day that the jury could not get a clear understanding of what happened, due to the fact of so many things being thrown at them at one time, from hundreds of evidence, to crazy irrelevant stories, like Casey’s dad molesting her. Due to that, the monstrous ‘TOT’ mom walked free. I’m pretty sure she is still hiding, because she has a whole nation that completely despises her.

Let’s get back to what her judge said, because there’s more.

“The most logical thing that occurred, in my eyesight, based on everything I know about the case, was that Casey did not intentionally kill her daughter. I think based upon the evidence, the most logical thing that happened was that she tried to knock her daughter out by the use of chloroform and gave her too much, which caused her daughter to die.”

To me, murder is murder. Casey murdered her daughter, so she never should’ve walked free. How dare someone try to step forward and try to write it off as an accident. How is that justice for baby Caylee who lost her life? She lost her life because her mother was selfish. Yet, people are trying to defend the evil and not the pure.

Sad. What are your thoughts?

Bitter day for my best friend and my brother’s anniversaries. 

Today is a very emotional day. Today is my late best friend’s birthday, as well as the anniversary of my brother’s passing. If you all have seen my previous December post about her, then you know all the details, and how tight and close we were, and still are, because we have our ways of remaining connected. 

My girl would be turning 25 years old today. It’s funny, because she always picked on me for being 6 days older than me, since my birthday is on the 28th. Damn it 😂 


We literally had 3 parties every year. One for her, one for me, and one combined. We knew how to throw down like true Aquariuns.  

When we were younger, we always did house parties. But the day we turned 21, we hit our first club together when I turned 21. We blew that bar out. I’ll never forget it. It was diamonds bar and pub. It was herself, her sister, her husband, my ex, and myself. We got real drunk, danced our asses off, and took many selfies! 

I truly do miss my best friend. This will be my second year celebrating without her, at least physically, because I know she will always be with my spiritually. 

————————————–


Today also marks the anniversary of my brother’s passing, as I previously stated. So what once was a bittersweet day, is just a bitter day. 
If you read my previous December blog about my brother, then you already know a lot of the details. 

His birthday just passed on December 4th, which means he would be 27 years old. 

He passed away in 1996… it’s now been 21 years since he’s left us physically, and I miss him ever so much. He was my oldest, and only brother, so even though I talk to him all the time, it’s still quite lonely. 

But I know they’re resting in peace together-Brittany and Brian- and I know they’re celebrating each other’s birthdays with one another now, which makes me very happy. They both finally get to meet and learn about one another, like I had the pleasure of doing with them. 

Happy birthday Brittany, I’ll be throwing one back for you! I hope you and Bryan don’t get to tore up in heaven, but then again, it’s heaven, so I’m sure nothing can go wrong! 

I love you both so much and I’ll tell you all about it when I see you all again. 💙❤
