This video from Oprah’s Next Chapter is a must see. Cissy Houston, the mother of Whitney Houston, pretty much outs her own daughter. And her rigid views on Homosexuality and her relationship with friend/lover Robin lead Whitney to increased drug usage! It’s terribly sad! 😦
Over the weekend, I was a part of a great event during the 40th Annual National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. They honored a great man in the Leather community, Race Bannon, and the Atlanta Leather Community came out in full force to support. It was truly a great day!.
The 1st 20 min of the video is when they recognize the leather community. The rest of the video is footage from the rest of the days events. You’ll see me in the front of the stage behind one of my ONYX brothers!
He is probably the most well known African American gay porn star ever. Known for his great looks and body, he is also well known for his versatility in porn. He did it all on film with no shame and with sexual abandon. Like most porn stars from that area, he passed away in 1995 from AIDS related complications. Boy do I wish we had more like him in the game now!
