Comedian, Writer, and Activist, Sampson McCormick makes us laugh, but he will also make you think. Known for his hit comedy "That Bitch Better Be Funny," (which is available on iTunes), Sampson recently released a video concerning Black Gay Men and Low Self Esteem. Sampson deals with those that hide in the club, Gay Bash from the pulpit, as well as deal with those who are hyper-masculine who are Down-Low but always have something to say against the LGBT Community in which they are apart of. Check out his video below.
One thing that I cannot stand seeing with Bisexual or Downlow men is the fact that they often marry women in order to hide or cover up the fact that they are homosexual or same gender loving. There are also cases where obviously gay men have married women, through force or their own stupidity, believing that it will make them straight. This is often taught by fundamentalist Christians and other religions that in order to not be damned to hell for loving the same gender you must marry the opposite sex and that you're cured.
NEWS FLASH: IT DOESN'T!!!! You're still a Gay or Bisexual person that ended up marrying someone to make it look like your heterosexual, but you are still attracted to the same sex!!!
Why am I writing this you may ask? Well Over the course of the week I've seen men who have just this very week tried to bed me or want to have an escapade with me announce over Facebook that they are engaged to a woman. Now, don't get me wrong I'm not upset because they are engaged and that I'm single, but I'm repulsed at the fact that they are living a lie and bringing an innocent soul into their lie. It sickens me to see anyone use the guise of marriage to cover up their actions. Marriage is sacred and the way that you desecrate marriage is that you use it to make yourself "fit in" with the status quo.
Just last night, I was watching a video of an obviously gay man who is married to a woman. The woman looked unhappy, but the man acted like there was nothing wrong. Apparently the wife is not happy because the husband had been caught in a scandal. She wouldn't even look at the camera during the video. The wife remained quiet, but it is obvious that the husband was attempting to cover up the fact that he is infact same gender loving. In relationships like that, there will be infidelity because the man is not attracted to the woman whatsoever. They are both living a lie. The wife is pretending to be happy while the husband is literally gay and happy living a lie.
If you are gay, why get married? Why are you worried about people's opinion? It is 2014 be proud of who you are. Stop hiding. You are not in one of those countries that will kill you under law for being who you are. There is NOTHING wrong with being Gay or Bi. Don't get fooled into thinking that marrying one of the opposite sex will make you straight. It doesn't. I've been there done that.
I've allowed church people to force me to date women, when I knew that I wasn't desiring a woman. That caused depression not only with me but also hurt the young lady that I was dating. How so? Because everything was built on a lie. That's what happens when a knowingly Gay man attempts to go straight through marriage. There is no love.
NEWS FLASH: MARRIAGE DOES NOT MAKE YOU STRAIGHT!!!!
On Wednesday Sen. Steve Gallardo of Arizona announced that he is gay. This comes after Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed the Bill that was passed in Arizona that would allow businesses to discriminate against the LGBT Community due to religious beliefs.
Sen. Gallardo tells reporters that “This bill allows businesses to say to me and my friends that we can’t be served in certain restaurants,” he told NBC News. “I don’t know why the Legislature was doing this. I should come out, I should say something, I should share the personal side of my life that I don’t really share.” Gallardo is a Democrat, who has served in the Arizona House 2003-2009, the moved to the Senate in 2011. He is planning to run for the U.S. House seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Ed Pastor this year.
Gallardo states that his coming out is bigger than any race. He's not worried about how it will affect him in the race. He tells media "If I can make it easier for just one person, it's worth it."

Yes I have a 9 -5 and yes I have some obstacles in life right now, but despite the obstacles in my life, I'm aiming to enjoy my life. I only get once to live. I refuse to be mean, surly, and depressed and stuck in a rut. It is time for us all to be free.
Honey, Sugar Sugar Boo Boo, Go enjoy your life. Stop worrying about what people have to say about you. Stop worrying about things that you can't control. Enjoy your life. Take a vacation, some you time, or just dance your cares away.

As a single, Black, Gay Man, I've often asked myself "Musique, Why are you single?" My response to myself and to my friends is constantly " I don't have time to date." Then afterwards, I think to myself "Do I have time to date or is it an excuse." I do work a 9-5, very active in ministry, run this blog and The Bradley Show as well as work on my music career. Sometimes, I do try to take days for myself where I'm able to rest and relax and not be bothered, but could everything outside of work and church be a distraction for me?
Another reason why I feel that I don't have time to date is the fact that I will soon be relocating and I don't really want to start dating and then have to deal with the separation issues that come with moving and I refuse to do a long distance relationship.
Don't get me wrong, I am tired of being single at the age of 28 and I feel that after a year and some change of being single, I need something other than a quick fling in my life. What is a guy like me to do? I've tried doing the whole Jack'd phenomena, Grindr, Hornet, Scruff, and apps like that, but I'm a little too old fashioned for that.
Now I'm a hard working man and I am busying trying to better myself, but am I just simply not making time enough to date because I'm scared of disappointment or rejection? Do I have the time to date and just not making time? What shall I sexy guy like me to do?
