A lot of gays from other cities view Los Angeles as a social mecca complete with upscale clubs, chic restaurants, and celebrity sightings on every corner. They also believe it to be a safe-haven for them to be out and open; living the life of a -mock- Kardashian while enjoyoing all the city has to offer. How true that is remains to be seen; especially for members of the Black gay community. Believe it or not, as large as Los Angeles is there are no bars dedicated to Black gays and only one club (that opens and closes at will). However, Brandon Anthony (The Socialite House) is doing his part to change all of that. He's young, sexy, hip, and one of my co-stars in the upcoming original series 'Cheetah in August'.
Tune in to hear how Brandon is reshaping the Los Angeles Black gay party scene with his special events and long awaited Generation X Black Pride Celebration. The events July 1st to July 5th agenda will have even the most skilled party goer worn completely out.

Today's episode is simple. I recorded a new demo yesterday and I am going to play it for you on the show today.
It's rough, it's not mixed or edited, and there are apparent noise issues, but it's raw, it's real, its me.
I wanted to write a song that captured a very tender and vulnerable mood. It is easy to be angry and scream, but exposing your deepest vulnerabilities in songwriting is a whole other thing. It takes bravery to show a vulnerable side, it takes a certain level of self acceptance and fearlessness to expose your soul to the world. However, the experience was quietly transformation for me in writing a song like this.
It was a smooth process. Ronald E. King (accompaniment) and I really jived together as we often do and it was a wonderful moment, as it always is when a song comes together so effortlessly.
This song is a long way from being a song still, and has many fine tunings and evolutions before I discover it's true personality. However, I think there is something magical about this recording and wanted to share this moment.
