To Barry Sewell With Love

Barry Sewell,

I feel it is necessary for me to step in and say something since you had been receiving some toxic messages from your friends who were trying to stir something between you and your ex wife, Crystal Blalock when there was nothing going on between you two.

Yes, it is true that I met Crystal last January or February.  It was awkward encounter but we got over with it and ended up being appreciative of each other's viewpoints.  Saw her repeatedly in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho.  I can assure you that there is no vlog nor post that I bragged about her away from you.  Why would I do that?  What would I benefit from this?  Absolutely nothing.

I once did ask Crystal about your marriage.  She said she rather not to talk about that matter. That was the end of it. In fact, each time we got together, we really don't talk about you that much. There was one time, she said she needs to cut the conversation short because there was an auto accident with you in Montana. She was genuinely concerned for you and abruptly left Utah for Montana. I did not press anything much on that. I even did not mention it on my Facebook, Twitter or YouTube because it was such a personal crisis for Crystal and you at that time.

You knew why the marriage did not work.  I'm not sure on the exact details on why the marriage did not work but that is not my call to say such things like that. You should consider yourself fortunate that Crystal never did air the reasons on why the marriage did not work. Don't push your luck on that one. You wanted that avenue, she did not want that avenue. So the marriage simply did not work, there is no need for you to bash on her repeatedly. Every time you blow up at Crystal, it always happened when you got the words from your toxic friends trying to stir things between you and Crystal.

Truth be told, Crystal was genuinely happy that you got someone significant in your life. She told me in Utah that she was happy for you to find someone else.

I got to meet one of your boys and thought he was such a great and funny person.  Are you going to punish him for betraying you?  Just stop this nonsense and let Crystal go. She's free, you're free, there is no need for you to pull your children and friends in on this debacle.

If you're happy with that woman, then great.  Stop going after your ex wife, Crystal. She does not deserve this treatment from you or anyone else like that.

Gay Liberation Monument Was Defaced In 1991 by Deaf Wisconsinites

These statues can be found at Christopher Park by Christopher Street in Greenwich Village between two legendary bars: Stonewall Inn and Monster Bar.
I believe I already mentioned this before but since it is WorldPride Weekend, I feel it is necessary to remind you all about this once again.
The statues called the Gay Liberation Monument was installed at Orton Park in Madison, Wisconsin where it stays for five years until it was defaced by a group led by Deaf person named Darrell Roby. Darrell and his homophobic friends from Wisconsin School for the Deaf threw the paints at the statues. 
Because of that, the statues were moved to Christopher Park in New York where it remains as a fixture on Christopher Street for the last 28 years.
Don't forget this - don't dismiss the fact that a Deaf individual did lead a Deaf group from that deaf school to vandalize this statues sometimes in Madison, Wisconsin back in 1991.
The information about the incident was verified by the court records, newspaper records and Deaf grapevines. 
Today, I hadn't seen any Deaf person, school or organization calling out on Darrell Roby and his WSD minions accountable for what they did do to the statues. 
And you want to speak of Community Accountability? Do this ... first. Why don't Deaf people in Wisconsin come forward to apologize, come forward to condemn these participants? Why didn't WSD say something about this? Even WSD Alumni buried their heads in the sandbox for decades - they KNEW about it but chose not to address this.
My sources from Wisconsin said Darrell Roby was the ringleader. His minions were Chris Rawlings and Jacob Temby among the few others.  Truth be told, a long time ago before Jacob's death, he admitted to me that he was involved.
Until then, this is why I don't believe in Community Accountability in Deaf Community. 
This picture was of me and Travis Imel standing next to the Gay Liberation Monument at Christopher Park when he visited me in New York City back in 2004.

That Evil Woman

My good friend, Jennifer Van de Leur of Norfolk, Virginia was supposed to send me the front pages of The Virginian-Pilot and asked me to film myself when I opened her letter.
