#FlashBackFriday-But You're Gay

 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've worked in a warehouse, grouphomes, day camp facilities, and I've even been a stage manager?  These are some of the occupations that I as a genderqueer have held, femininity and all.
  There are many people just like me that have jobs that people do not see them fit for. However, my sexuality does not qualify me, my work ethic and experience does.
  Many people do not see me holding high ranking positions in ministry either because I'm gay.  The last time I checked God looks at my heart not my sexuality.
Good Night

Getting Back To Me

  It has been a very long time since I've sat my happy booty down and wrote in this blog.  One reason is that I had been sick with a stomach virus. Then as I recuperated I broke my laptop charger and I just got a new one a couple days ago. Then I had to make a trip to the DMV for an even that later got cancelled due to a snow storm.  
  I can't complain, though. I needed this break. I needed some time away to regroup and to refresh myself.  We have to do that so that we won't lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of life.  I am also thankful for my current lover. 
  Mr. Lover Boy has encouraged me to just enjoy life and have fun more often without stressing over things that are out of my control.  Look for it. Some exciting and new things are about to happen for this blog.
 love ya,

What Do You Want Out of Life?

 What do you want out of life? What do you desire for yourself? In this new year of 2015, It is time for us to examine the things that we really want out of life.  You must make that decision.
  Is it happiness, success, love, and peace?  If so take the necessary steps to uproot and over throw everything and everybody that is preventing you from getting to happy. It is mandatory. It isn't a choice.
  If you want sadness, pain, tragedy, then keep doors open to people that don't want you to succeed, drain you, and kill your dreams.
  The choice is yours. What do you want out of life?

Michigan Citizens against the The Religious Freedom Restoration Act

I am deeply disturbed with the state of Michigan Right Now.
So apparently they are feeling their religious Not So Rights
At this moment by reintroducing the 
Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
This act of hate allows for the LGBTQIAP
Community to be refused treatment, jobs, and other
God given rights due to someone's so called religion.
It not only affects the LGBTQIAP Community but
It affects none Christians as well.
Imagine being discriminated against because of your race,
sexual orientation,
or simply because some 
religious butthole
feels that you don't deserve treatment.
The last time checked, Yahweh Loved everyone and 
detested hatred.
Let's fight this bill by signing this petition
Love ya,

I'm BACK!!!!

     Hey Family, 
  I'm back!!!! I've had a busy weekend and I needed some time away. I did win my category for BQ Up in Pumps!!!! I'm very excited.  Despite many things that have happened over the weekend and some arguments that ensued, however things are going better than expected.  
  I'm refreshed, happy, however I did end up leaving the Ballroom scene over the weekend.  I proved my point that I am a winner not only for Grand Prizes but for of the year in some areas.  I've had a good run for the year lol. 
  Now my focuses are on building my brand as Yannick Taylor, Yannick's Youtube, This Blog, and Ministry.  I'm also working moving to the DMV. Things are slowly but surely coming together.  Just keep me in prayer.  More exciting posts are coming soon,

Where are the religious leaders? #Ferguson #MikeBrown

  In the wake of the Ferguson riots, all Pro-Black people have come out of the woodworks. My question is where are all the religious leaders? Where are all the preachers and evangelists at a time like this? Where are the supposed to be Peacemakers? Where are they?
  Many of them are so busy being pimps in the pulpit instead of helping their community. They are also trying to have the next megachurch.  Did you know that the church is outside of the four walls and that's where real ministry is? Did you also know that the Bible Tells us that we are supposed to stand up for the civil rights and civil liberties of others?  
  Instead of preaching against homosexuality and sex, it's time to preach against injustices, racism, sexism, hatred, and discrimination. These are the things that are really destroying the community. Forget about who isn't tithing and paying an offering, what about the lives of young people lost to a corrupt justice system. I guess they forgot about that part of the Bible.
Where are the religious leaders?

Black Friday Rest and Relaxation #Boycott

 It's Black Friday, The Day after Thanksgiving and I'm just happy to be off. I'm thankful that I got to see my family for one more holiday. Although, I had other plans, I realize that things happen for a reason. I am glad that I've had this holiday time off. It allows me to refresh and not deal with the bullcrap that comes with customer service. 
  I pray that you all are having a great Holiday Week and are living life. Now as far as Black Friday are concerned, I am not participating in the capitalistic holiday.  I have better things to do. I'm going to use my money to help family and to spend my money on things that matter and not all these toys, makeup , clothes and other stuff that will quickly be discarded. That's just my opinion and standpoint. If you don't like it, oh well.
 However in a sense I am boycotting world injustices as I do everyday of my life especially after the deaths of unarmed Black men in this country and not just Black Men and Women, but injustices that affect us all. It doesn't matter if we are Gay, Straight, Bisexual or Transgender or Transexual, injustice is wrong.
  I've really never saw a point in Black Friday. It's just a reason for people to spend their money on useless stuff.
 I digress,
You all have a great weekend,

I Stopped

I stopped worrying about other people.
I stopped living my life to please their opinions.
I stopped limiting myself.
I stopped dying and started living.
I stopped dreaming and started being.
I stopped the norm,
and became the abnormal.
I stopped being their puppet,
and I started
being me.
I stopped the bondage,
and I've found my Freedom.

What will the future hold.

Stop Searching, It Will Come

  It's been almost a month since my break up with my last lover.  Things seemed to be going well for the 2 months that we were together, however entering
 into the third phase or third month I noticed that his communication would get slack, unless he needed money or needed some type of assistance.  My ex, whom we'll call "Anton," turned out to be a sweet dream and beautiful nightmare.

  Anton seemed like the perfect one for me, but then there were too many red flags and I began catching him in several lies. He would complain about me doing church work and accuse me of not making time for him, when I would sacrifice time with friends and family for him.  However, Anton could not sacrifice for me. So , I had to let him go. 

  I know my worth and I know what I deserve, and I deserve better than a quickie and more than a relationship out of convenience for what I can do.  I need someone that can value me as whole and will treat me like the King that I am.

  I didn't really want to write about the break up, but I needed to get it off my chest. For some reason this week, I felt overlooked and rejected when it came to dating. Granted I've been getting hits from Facebook and other dating apps, but it's always the same games.

You know: the nsa, you have to fit certain criteria, and stuff that make you feel like you aren't good enough, or either you must be DL and masculine.

  I'm sorry but that's not what I'm seeking. I'm seeking a lifetime commitment and not a fly by night operation.

  I've resolved within myself to stop searching for love and the perfect relationship and it will come to me in due time.  I want it to be right now, but right now, I have so many things that I want to do for myself and I'm not sure if I'm ready. Only time will tell.

  I've learned that good things come to those who wait. I guess I'll have to wait.
