Military Grade: A Gay Kid's Decision To Join The Marines Inspires Cautionary Coming-Of-Age Tome Comments (0)

ThePinkMarine_Kindle_FrontCover_JS copy

Greg Cope White sent me his book and I'm engrossed in it so far. It's about, well, let me allow him to pitch it:

When Greg Cope White’s best friend tells him he is spending his summer in Marine Corps boot camp, all Greg hears is “summer” and “camp.”

Despite dire warnings from his friend, Greg vows to join him in recruit training. He is eighteen, underweight, he’s never run a mile—and he is gay.

It’s long before Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the Supreme Court marriage equality ruling, and with no LGBT rights in place in most states, and the Marines having a very definite expulsion policy in place for gay people when it comes to military personnel, will Greg even survive? He's Mormon, he's never felt a true home, and with our knowing it, the military is the best place he could be. 

The Pink Marine is the story—full of hilarity and heartbreak—of how a teenage boy who struggles with self-acceptance and his sexuality and doesn’t fit the traditional definition of manliness finds acceptance and self-worth in Marine Corps boot camp.
 
This could be a synopsis of some nightmares I've had. For more details, check it out here.

Party Like It's 1999: Vintage Footage Of Fire Island Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 4.23.26 PM

My pal Alan Light has struck (gold) again, this time uploading some footage from 1998 and 1999 shot on Fire Island. Again, this shouldn't be such a flashback, but it feels like that anyway—almost 20 years.

First impressions (other than seeing some people I know!) is: Isn't it interesting how much less prepared people are when faced with a recording device? Today, people are on at all times. Also: HGH and other steroids and enhancements were not all the rage just yet—the bodies are much less inflated.

In this video, there's plenty of local color, including shirtless guys, dancing queens and shots of the Pavilion (that burned in 2011):

As one-time Advocate cover man and gay vet Eric Alva reminds us, we have made great strides in the military, but the mission is not yet accomplished.

Happy Memorial Day. Remembering my grandfather, who served and had many life-altering experiences in World War II.
