Happy Birthday to my honey, Jerame. Today's the big day; he turns 35 today. jeramepressersmall.jpgWelcome to the Middle Ages, my dear.

When we first got together, Jerame was a budding young activist who hadn't been out of the closet for very long. He jumped feet first into LGBT organizing and within a year of our first date, he had spoken at LGBT rights press conferences in two different rural Indiana counties, protested outside of a local homophobic business, and organized an online campaign against an oil company. No shit. Is it any wonder we're still together a dozen years later?

As I've watched Jerame blossom, I've been struck by how much that fire inside of him hasn't mellowed with age; it burns just as keenly. He's still willing to stick his neck out for the little guy.

That's the true mark of a man. No matter his age.

Damn dude, you're old. I think you may be eligible for now.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday! They say that 35 is the new 15... or is it 25? 23?

Happy Birthday, Jerame!! I wish you a year of health, happiness and all the best!


And there's Marla Stevens in the background. Poised for her TBP come-back.

Happy birthday!

Happy Happy Birthday! Say hi to Betty Ford and Patricia Arquette at the party!

He's just trying to make me feel good by using a picture of me at 25 on my 35th birthday, I think. LOL It's sweet, but I have less hair and more heft these days.

Thanks everyone!

Happy Birthday Jerame

Wishing you a happy healthy birthday and many more to come.

I don't know whether to smile or cry. Happy Birthday many times over, certainly, but if you are 35 then I am twice that plus a year or so, and that has the potential for sending me into.......a renewed attempt to see if Ponce DeLeon just didn't look hard enough for that fountain of youth.
