When Bloggers Collide

Leven and Stewart- NYC 4/7/08
One of the best experiences I've had doing this here blogging thing are the friends I've made who I've never actually met. BStewart23 (Brett Stewart) and I have been corresponding since October and I've always admired his blog for his level of humorous anger, his support for the gays and general fight against the stupidity pandemic. In a very short matter of time BStewart23 and I were hitting one another up with emails, tip offs and classic internet obnoxia. I've admired (ok and swooned) him since the first time my eyes set upon his blog and it goes beyond his amazing hairy chest and knowing that he used to write for OutWeek Magazine. Yet we never actually met.

That is until the Toronto living silver fox decided to visit NYC and we both made it a point to break the 1's and 0's matrix and meet in person. Every great characteristic I assumed BStewart to have was brought to the plate- and then some! He's an amazing, influential man with an unprecedented level of energy and creativity. Dude fucking cracks me up! His blog is an absolute must. I miss you already Stewy! Thanks for everything, friend.

I'm more interested in knowing what the sign you're holding in your right hand says.

Oh Outweek magazine... I was co-chair of the student group in 1990-1991 at Arizona State University and the campus police were arresting men in the bathrooms for having sex. The lesbian co-chair and I were able to stop the campus paper from publishing the names, majors, and home addresses of the students that got arrested (by noting that they didn't publish the same information for alleged rapists!). And someone from Outweek called us separately to interview us. The reporter then MADE UP quotes for both of us. I recall he asked me how I felt about men havig sex in bathrooms. I said, "Not something I would do, but I understand why it happens", of course that was completely changed to "I'm glad people are getting arrested.". Afterwards we got nasty letters from gay people around the country telling us how horrible we were. My attempts to get Outweek to print a correction were unanswered- our word against the reporter's. It ceased publication soon afterwards. The End.
