Not since the heyday of Deborah Cox in the mid 90's has a voice hit the dance floor (and charts) like Kimberly Davis'. Her latest track, "With You" has scorched the dance charts and her time on the stage with the legendary Nile Rodgers and Chic is turning her into dance floor royalty. Kimberly spoke recently about the whirlwind since "With You" was released and her performance at the Grammy after-party, and who made her absolutely starstruck!
Gay and Lesbian couples are residing throughout the state of New Jersey in every city and town according to the latest 2010 Census data just analyzed. Not many surprises so far.

It seems that the LGBT community remains divided about what it should do. There has been no one to lead us in saying "No! I'm sick and tired and I won't take it anymore."

Watching "The Dallas Buyers Club" on the big screen this past week, the new film about the early days of the HIV/ AIDS epidemic, had me recalling those dark days when we as a community were literally fighting for our very lives, and appreciating the real heroes of the era. For those with delicate sensibilities, you might not want to read my following memories of those early days.
