I have always felt comfortable in the company of gay men, ever since I realized they were a safe haven, so to speak, from the sexism and uber-machismo I experienced my early years in the navy :|

I'm thinking politics are somewhat unavoidable with "human being" photography, since our responses are based on personal experiences and beliefs, if not prejudice. I've even read a rant by someone offended to see a toddler with pierced ears!

I missed the tiny dog the first time and love the way it's looking at the glass. Street as it's best! S-
