So today is the 12th anniversary of when I created this blog, though I’ve only been doing it in its daily posting format for like the last 6 or 7 (?) years. Today is also the birthday of my older brother, to whom this blog is dedicated. He died in the 1990s from HIV related illnesses. Not a day goes by without him crossing my mind at some point. He sure blazed a path through Boston & NYC and to this day, decades later, he still has many friends and admirers who remember him vividly and miss him dearly. He was definitely one of those hard-to-forget personalities – a raging diva and perfectionist with a heart of gold. I’ve posted some of his modeling photos in the past but this year I decided to post a picture of him how I knew him. Thanks for being my guardian angel, brother.
