A gay fan reaches out to me on video and brings me to tears!

I have been moved to tears by a young man named Kyle, who insists that he is my biggest fan. At this point, I am his, and here’s why. I met Kyle about a year ago online. As I often do, I was looking for nice, LGBT people to send friend requests to, and there was this gorgeous young man’s profile page. Kyle gladly accepted my friend request and began exploring my online content. He loved my songs and videos and blogs. He began writing to me, as many have, asking for advice on issues he was struggling with in his young life. At 19, Kyle had been through hell already. His mother, refusing to accept his homosexuality, would beat on him at home. Finally, one day, she just kicked him out of the house. She used religion as her tool to condemn him. Kyle moved in with his Grandma and he got a job at a grocery store. The past year, Kyle has confided in me about several issues he has. When Kyle was a baby, he had to have his throat operated on, and so his voice is raspy. He witnessed the ugly side of the gay lifestyle when some bitter bitches verbally bashed him on a radio show for being my friend. They made fun of his voice, as if it is something he has any control over. As I did with Kyle’s mother, I cussed those bitches out and put them in their place right fucking quick! Nobody messes with my friend without being called out on it by me. I guess if you really want to understand Kyle’s mom, the only way to describe her is with a song from South Park called, “Kyle’s Mom’s A Bitch!”, but that’s just my observation, which I gladly shared with her before she blocked me online.

What I didn’t realize when I started my online video series on Gay News, was that people would actually benefit from it as much as they have. Kyle says that the example of LGBT pride that I share has strengthened him and helped him to accept himself while the rest of the world catches up. Kyle has had his ups and downs this past year. He’s dated a couple of guys who just didn’t work out. I am confident that any single man with an ounce of taste and a loving heart, could get past the raspy voice and be in awe of Kyle’s stunningly handsome face and really sexy bod! He’s the full package, minus the bullshit backtalk! If I was single, I’d be stalking him, lol. He will make some lucky man a very good partner one day.

For now, Kyle is following in my footsteps, and I couldn’t be more proud of him. He has decided to keep all of his LGBT friends informed with his own “Doctor’s Gay News & Media” videos, and this is his first full show. I’ve been encouraging my friends to do what I’m doing all along, so this makes me very happy. Kyle recently started selling Mon A Vie health drinks to supplement his income. He starts out this video with his own ad for the product, explaining it’s health and pain relieving benefits. After this first story, Kyle gives a plug, and then he goes into a speech about me that reduced me to a sobbing mess. I hadn’t realized just how much I’ve touched this young man’s life until now. I’ve been so blessed through the kindness extended to me by strangers, who became friends, online. Never did I dream that such a blessing as Kyle would enter my life. Never, did I imagine that anyone would take what I do so seriously that they would say the kindest things about me that have ever been said. If I didn’t know my mission, going into the Gay News project I started, I do now. One of my goals is to help other feel as comfortable in their skin as I do. I wear my bisexuality like a second skin, everywhere I go. I would never deny it, or pretend to be anyone else. I had to travel a long, hard road to get here, but I never forgot those who helped show me the way. George Michael, Sir Elton John and even porn star Jeff Stryker helped me along by telling the world they were proud of who they are. If I can continue that kind of legacy, and help others, just by being me, then I’d be happy. To combine my LGBT pride with information that is relevant to our movement of equality is a dream come true for me. I always knew that I was meant to be heard on a large scale, and I was born to be famous. While my fame is slowly catching up to me, it is the climb that is the most rewarding of all. Knowing that I am not alone in this quest means more than I can express with words. I know that people like Kyle, and those who read my blogs, watch my videos and write to me, are with me every step of the way. Together, we keep adding more friends to our trek, and ultimately, we will all come together to celebrate OUR accomplishments. For as much praise as I receive for my efforts, they would be far less fruitful, if not for the amazing people who share what I write and post on my pages. Those of you, including my straight friends, who are not afraid to post my gay news on your sites, and are reaching out to your friends by sharing my content, are the true heroes of the LGBT movement. I can crank out videos until I die, but without you sharing them, they would never be viewed. Kyle is the perfect example of the kind of person I am reaching out to. The fact that he, not only gets it, but that he IS it, makes all the difference in the world.

Here’s Kyle’s video. I am going to be editing it for my next Gay News In Review on March 2nd.

  1. Posting a bit late but I just spotted this. I knew that Kyle's Mom had mistreated him, but I had no idea he got shit from other gays!
    So sorry to hear that. Kyle is a sweet young guy and a talented video artist. I'm so glad he found love and support from you!
