Why I’m doing it–my Huff Post piece about the People’s Climate March

Anyone who knows me can tell you that large crowds are not my thing. Still I am going to drag my gay ass to NYC for the the monster People’s Climate March.

In my first ever Huffington Post submission I write about why I am doing it.

After a ridiculously long stint trying to de-gay myself through gay conversion therapy, I finally came out. Then, happily settled with a hunky smart stud, I got smacked in the face with a hot, nasty blast of global warming.

No, don’t blame “the gays.” It’s the immoral, flamboyant fossil fuel lifestyle that got us into this climate mess. Part of me wants to wash my hands of climate change and enjoy a little marriage equality while we all go to hell in a flaming hand basket. But then something sassy stirs inside of me, and our ancestors compel me to get off Facebook and do something. So on September 21st, I’ll be at the historic Peoples Climate March in NYC.
