My brother is in town. Today I dragged him all over and showed him the sights. As we passed through Dolores Park and into the Castro, I laughed as one man afte the other stopped to stare at him.

Now, I’m cooking dinner and then might drag him to a gay bar or two. Pilsner or the Eagle. He’s open minded but there are limits I think.

We needed to do this. Our relationship has been strained and I needed him to get to know me away from large family gatherings.

It’s a good day to do that.
