Sunday Brunch in Harlem
Well a few days ago, Donald (Preboot/AnziDesign) had the great idea of inviting a few people of color bloggers for brunch last Sunday. Though only about a dozen of the 24 bloggers who RSVP'd showed up, it sounds like a fun time was had by all (the mom was in town so I wasn't able to make it).
The gathering, while leaning heavy on East Coast representation, not to say mostly on New York area bloggers, was a start. It was suggested that it become an annual event. I actually would suggest that meetings take place every three to six months, specially if the next one happens at one of the Colombian restaurants in Jackson Heights. Perhaps the West Coast and other areas will pick up on the idea as well.

On "glamour shots," "artistic nudes" and black gay bloggers:
Over at the larry lyons experience, Larry D. Lyons II mulls on an ongoing discussion began at Ynkuya's Kaleidoscope back in March. They might as well be speaking about graphic representation of Latino queer imagery on some blogs as well.
The details of just how Michael Sandy managed to get struck by a car in Brooklyn on Sunday night, leaving him in a coma, are truly horrendous and Bernard has the details as well as links to some of the coverage here. There are some unfortunate comments over at Keith Boykin's original post on the matter which imply that Mr. Sandy might have brought it upon himself for cruising online and for being in a desolate Brooklyn spot late at night. Repeat after me people, nobody deserves to be targeted for being gay and assaulted. Period.
