"The Truth About Love..."


Caresses, expressions of one sort or another, are necessary to the life of the affections, as leaves are to the life of trees. If they are wholly restrained, love will die at the roots.

- Nathaniel Hawthorne

"A Thought To Ponder..."


Unconditional love. That's what the lover wants to give and what the lover wants from another. People should give without wanting anything in return. All other giving is selfish. But lover is being selfish a little, aren't they, by wanting love in return? The lover hopes that love is returned. Is it possible for a person to love without wanting love back? Is anything so pure? Or is love, by its nature, a reciprocity, like oceans and clouds, an evaporating of seawater and a replenishing of rain?

- Alan Lightman

"The Truth About Love..."


Love is the one thing that can really sure-enough lighten all of life's dark clouds.

"It's True, Lovers Do Start To Look Alike..."


Amongst gay couples, it's often referred to as "A Boyfriend Twin"

"While you may be familiar with the old saying, “opposites attract,” in reality, what the heart wants is someone who resembles its owner and that resemblance increases the longer two lovebirds stay together.

University of Michigan psychologist Robert Zajonc conducted an experiment to test this phenomenon. He analyzed photographs of couples taken when they were newlyweds and photographs of the same couples taken 25 years later.

The results showed that the couples had grown to look more like each other over time. And, the happier that the couple said they were, the more likely they were to have increased in their physical similarity."

"A Little Sane Advice..."


I know that the situation looks dire, but now is the time to do the following:
  1. Take a deep breath and not to panic. 
  2. FIGHT for the rights of a free press, one that is not muzzled by the White House
  3. Befriend someone who is in one of the targeted minority. Let them know that you care.
  4. If you have children, explain to them that they are safe. Kid pick up on the stress in adults. Don't weird kids out. 
  5. Don't engage in a debate with a Trumpet. Like the musical instrument played by someone who doesn't know what they are doing, it can be loud, obnoxious and deafening. 
  6. Watch what you say on Facebook and to whom you are speaking. It is not about being afraid to be truthful - stay truthful - just know your audience, because there are people itching for a fight and no one wins in an online cat fight. 
  7. Support the people who are supporting the people of this nation. Legislators who are taking on the tough issues. 
  8. Try not to turn this into an "Us vs. We" thing. Trust me - there are a whole lot of people who voted for the POTUS who did it because they were swept up on the anti Hillary thing more than they were pro-Trump. They can be led back to the side of facts, rationality and voter sanity.
  9. Get involved in local politics. Why local? Because it is true that all politics are local. Local parties select the delegates to national conventions. Local political parties get the work done. Local parties control the state party. And the state party controls the roll of national parties. GET INVOLVED NOW. 
  10.  And MOST IMPORTANTLY - we have to prepare for a difficult two to four years. Remember that. 
And remember, if the POTUS insults someone, something, an issue, or whatever, support it. If it pisses him off, then it must be good.

Being a good American means more than beating ones chest and chanting "USA, USA, USA." It means standing up for what is righteous and good for all people in this country.

Bobby, in his own words: "Being gay means to me being myself. Being gay is just part of me as being straight is what's part of straight people.

My biggest challenge and also success was my 6 month trip to South Africa. It was my first trip all by myself. It was both exciting and scary. I had the most amazing time there and met some amazing people, but I also learned a lot about myself.

My coming out story is a bit different than others'. I was dating this guy and I told some friends. In a week the entire school knew I was dating a 6 year older guy. So I didn't really come out by choice.

To my parents on the other hand: I came out during a fight. I had a date with that guy, but didn't tell my parents anything, so they were waiting for me for dinner. Once I finally came home they just started and (of course) they were angry at me. So we were arguing about stuff and I just blurted out that I was on a date with a guy.

The gay community (in Amsterdam) is quite small actually. I'm not talking about numbers, but it's almost like everyone knows each other. A colleague once told me about this guy I dated a year before. He didn't know the guy and I only told a few friends about that guy and somehow he knew about us. I'm always surprised if I don't have mutual friends with guys. Sometimes I think it isn't even possible anymore.

I think we can learn a lot from Cape Town if it comes to acceptance. Amsterdam is placed as a place where everything is accepted and yes of course we can't complain. However, if I'd walk through Amsterdam holding hands with a guy, people will call names or look back (in my experience). In my first two months in Cape Town I've seen more guys holding hands on the streets than in one or maybe two years in Amsterdam. Plus nobody seemed to care. In Cape Town there's (just as in Amsterdam) a lot of diversity. Different religions, origins and so on and people seem to have respect for one another in the form of minding their own business."

"Sometimes In Advertising..."


We're sick of being socially engineered and we shun political correctness. We're young and we're rooting for change. We are children of the sun and are comfortable in our own skin, so don't tell us who to love or how to be.

Our campaign is all about the celebration of sexual expression whilst remembering to stay safe.

We've joined arms with Ansell condoms in support of safe sex. As whilst we're all about rooting, we believe in 'safety first'.

So stay safe this summer and root for us, root for change, root for VOLLEY.




Of course the anti-gay conservative crowd down under is loosing their lunch over this ad...
