I have been thinking a great deal about Diversity Rules Magazine and its place in my life. As I get older, I am discovering I am being driven toward a life’s purpose that was probably unfathomable years ago. I always saw myself being immersed in a life of queer advocacy, with any professional pursuit being germane to that theme. Over the last few years, however, I have slowly come to the realization that that is not the case any longer, with this realization becoming much more pronounced over the last few days.
I have grown tired of the incessant bickering amongst those in our community who feel the need to mock others and condemn them for not being PC enough or for their failure to understand the need to coddle every special interest within the rainbow tent. This combined with some other trends in our community has made me weary and tired of it all. We are all about individuality and respecting that individuality. I have begun to see a disrespect for those who do not agree with the established, PC driven Queer elders and leaders.
While I will always commit myself to equality and equal opportunity, I can honestly say, at this point in my life, it is not my life’s calling. I would much rather help people empower themselves, and assist in the exploration of their inner essence beyond their sexual and gender identity and help propel them on a path to understanding who they are and why they are here in this current Earthly manifestation.
With that said, it is my intent to begin to transform Diversity Rules Magazine into a vehicle by which to do this, while preserving its focus on all things queer. One’s inner essence is driven by their sexual and gender identity. It is my intent to begin to mold the publication into something that honors ones sexual and gender identity but yet takes it beyond that to a better understanding of one’s life purpose. Stay tuned, as this transformation will be a slow progression but one that should be noticeable in the coming months.
I am pretty confident that my penning and printing out the first very rough draft of my book is the beginning of this new venture that will begin to be intertwined with Diversity Rules Magazine.
Thank you all for your continued support of my passion. However, as is the case in life generally, one’s passions change, but still, are grounded in what one holds as truth. My truth is that I am a queer individual on a larger journey of enlightenment. Diversity Rules will begin to reflect that truth soon enough.
