What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

After reading this website on and off since its inception, I've finally realized, this is someplace I need to be part of, not just an observer.

The nick is the second I've had online in the 20+ years I've been snooping around the tubes. It started back in the dear old days of irc when there was only one server, under 100 channels, and everyone queer online hung out in #gblf.

I have a friend who makes laser shows. Some of them have won awards, in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
