Happy New Year, JMG Community!

Another action-packed year has come and gone for this here website thingy, which in a few months will mark its 14th anniversary. I want to sincerely thank all of you, longtime JMGers and newbies alike, for coming along on the insane Trump-zaster that 2017 has been.

As I mention in this post every year, aggregating breaking news is like a homework assignment that is never done, but is always due. Nevertheless, you all make it a lot easier with your emails, your story tips, and your participation.

I thank you all for your robust opinions and for making the JMG comments section the most lively in the entire homo-blogosphere. I’m happy to have met so many of you at our JMG meetups and look forward to meeting many more of you over the next year.

Tonight here in Wilton Manors, I’ll be raising my glass to each and every one of our flying monkeys. The LGBT civil rights movement may be under siege once again, but each of you, merely by being out and proud, are warriors in our battle. Never forget that. Onward to 2018 when we’ll be reclaiming our time!
