Once upon a time I wrote a blog entry entitled "Dear Black Families: The Intro," This entry will serve as the outro for this particular train of thought. Here's some more thoughts for Black Families and for any family period to observe and think about.

2017 and Things To Stop and Start

Image
1. To my DL preachers: Stay with the life you chose and stop preaching against homosexual when you are one yourself

2. Work on your own soul salvation: Stop daming people to hell when you're life ain't all lilly white.

3. To my Blaqueer Community: Stop outing Down Low Men

4. Stop Outing People's HIV status

5. Stop expecting people to baby you up. Grow the F**** up!!!

6. Stop advising people to stop "fucking for free" when you are shacked up with a married DL man.  Sorry you are the weakest link.

7. Stop Allowing people to force their vision on you.

8. Stop hanging around chickens when you are a Dove.

9. Start working toward your goals.

10. If you have mental health issues, go to therapy.

11. Know your status and get tested.

12. Start focusing on your well being.

13. Start letting people carry their own weight. You are not their ass to carry their load.

14. Don't Entertain Foolishness!!!

Being Transgender and Facing The Gay Community

Well the last few hours have been VERY interesting.  I was on a social media site and I did a forum post on celibacy and this is the response I got:

"Greenleaf" and the Black Church Part 2: Prostitution of the Blaqueer

Image
Part 1 of my "Greenleaf" blog series is up!!!

  For those who have kept up with one of the two Gay Story Lines in Oprah's new show "Greenleaf"  , you know that I'm about to go the fuck OFF about the prostitution of the Blaqueer community and the bullshit we often go through in the Black Church.
  In the last couple episodes of Greenleaf a new praise and worship leader by the name of Carlton Cruise, played by actor Parnell Damone Marcano, is sought out by The Bishop's singing daughter, Charity, played by Deborah Joy Winans (yes she's Bebe and Cece's Sister). Now the shade is that Charity's husband Kevin Saterlee played by Tye White is on the Downlow but we'll hit that point later.

Hurt People Hurt People

Image
In my lifetime I have heard and experienced the unfortunate cliche “,hurt people hurt people.” This simply means that people who have been hurt at some point in their life lash out and inflict emotional, mental, physical, and sometimes even spiritual pain on those around them.  It could be that certain words are triggers, certain phrases can set a person off or that people simply accomplishing certain goals can cause the person who have been hurt to lash out.   Many questions may come to mind. One question may be “why do hurt people hurt others when they can heal or get help to heal that hurt.” Well, that is easier answered than accomplished.  When a person is hurt they tend to internalize the role as a victim. If a person has been victimized with in a great trauma, often times they carry around the weight of that hurt and the pain and use it as a defense mechanism.  The hurt that was done to that person may have caused them to feel insecure which can and will affect relationships an…

Me Time and Life

Image
Many of you have been wondering where I have been the last week or so. Well I've actually been taking me some me time that was much needed.    Since the release of the crazy, bitter ex, I've had to spend sometime regrouping. Through this time I was able to focus on me and regain my focus on my music and the move to the DMV. I had spent so much time trying to make something work, but the only thing that was working was my money.   Sometimes people don't want you because they love you. They see what you have to offer and what you can do for them and they neglect the love factor and focus on the "what can I get out of this person factor."     It is sad and unfortunate, but I'm thankful for the experience. Why? Well It is allowing me to transition like I desire. It is also allowing me to explore the polyamorous side of me.  I'm in a time of exploration and a time of transition. If you want to be apart of this transition please click on the link below. This…

Don't Ask About My Genitals: Advice from a GenderQueer/Trans Person of Color

Image
I have some advice to those who are curious about MTF, FTM, and Other Transgender people. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ABOUT GENITALS OR DICK!!!   Why am I giving this advice?  Well Let's see, It is fucking RUDE!!!  It is disrespectful.  This advice comes after a Facebook message that The Priestess received on last night.  In it a man that we'll call "Daddy O,"  who knows what the Priestess is working with in the Penile region, stated that he saw that I was transitioning and that he loved that I had a nice penis. He simply asked "What are you going to do with it." He also stated that he was hoping that I would not get rid of it.   I was taken aback at his ignorance. I was also irritated as hell.  For starters I did want to tell him "Sir, You don't own any parts of me. So you cannot dictate my transition and what I do with my body."  I felt as if I had been violently violated and prodded and controlled.  I was pissed.     However, this Priestess put on…

I'm Taking a Leap of Faith

Image
There are times in our life where we must take leaps of faith and must take a chance on something that will greatly benefit us.  Right now I am in this place.  Right now I am contemplating some moves that will greatly benefit me in the area of my music career, and liberating myself from the humdrum of working a 9-5.  This is one reason why I am stepping up my game with this blog.    Many people have asked why I haven't been blogging as much, well the truth is that I've needed some time away to evaluate some things about my life and about what I really want out of life.  I am doing the best I can to audition with a heavy work schedule as well as keep the creative juices flowing.     I've even started a crowdfunding to help me jump start my music career.  I'm trying to make waves for myself. However, I'm staying patient and resilient that God will answer my prayers soon.   I'm stepping out on that NOW faith principle. Selah, Yannick

Even I Get Tired

Image
We all get to a point to where we get burned out and get tired.  Burn out happens when you are over your head in stress and when so many people desire so much of your time.  But sometimes we get tired and we have to take some time for ourselves to regroup and refresh.   I'm at that point right now.  It happens every blue moon.  I do apologize for not being very active on this blog site, but I haven't really felt like blogging nor have I had the time.  I do thank you all for viewing this blog site and I thank you for showing your support and keeping up with my Youtube Channel.  I may not have a million views nor a million followers, but I am thankful that you all think enough of me to come by and to comment, share, and input your ideas into this blog.   It really means a lot to me.  I pray that you all bare with me as I change some things in my routine. I realize that with some things going on in my life, that posting may not happen everyday, but I count it all joy when I am…

#FlashBackFriday-But You're Gay

Image
As I write this post, my mind goes back to a hot August day.  It was the beginning of my Friday before the big campus parties and my homegirl "Cree," and I were eating lunch.   Cree asked me "Yannick, what type of work did you do back home." "I work as a church musician and I used to work at a hardware store," I replied as I munched on my good old cheeseburger.   I looked up and Cree had this puzzled look on her face. It was like her face had became numb and she replied "But You're Gay."   I couldn't do anything but laugh.   It had me thinking to myself "Does my sexuality determine what type of job I should have?"   Many people often have the stereotype that Gay Men, Transgender people, and gender non conforming people often can only snag call center jobs, office jobs, fast food jobs, and stereotypically Hairdressers or make up artists.     This misconception is entirely untrue.  Would you believe it if I told you that I'v…
