twitterbg2 3NOH8 co-founder Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley gave a whole new meaning to duct tape on the mouth (we'll let you decide what the old meaning was :)

We spoke with Adam at his LA Pride booth.

The Los Angeles Bisexual Task force was scheduled to meet with the West Hollywood City Council Thursday, July 14th to request that they create a Bisexual Advisory Board for the city as they have done for Gays and Lesbians and Transexuals.  We have not yet heard what the outcome was, though initial responses are that it was positive.

We spoke with Robert Ozn, Chair of the Task Force at their LA Pride booth last month and he tells us why the Board is important to the community.  Robert feels that bisexuals have been "completely erased" by the city of West Hollywood by not having a Board representing bisexuals and not having any bisexuals on any of their existing Boards.

payamghassemlouMany of us gay people (gay here refers to entire LGBT community) are acknowledging a need for a more meaningful way of living to avoid a motionless and purposeless existence. Lack of depth and meaning has caused many gay people to experience feelings of boredom and emptiness. Such feelings have forced many to look for something outside of themselves in order to feel content. Some indulge in drug use, excessive drinking, or brief romantic affairs, while others might engage in excessive shopping, traveling, or overeating in order to cope with their negative emotional states. Even though such activities might feel pleasurable and provide a momentary sense of euphoria, they do not lead to a real experience of vitality and aliveness. There is a different kind of intoxication that involves the experience of the soul. Such experience is beyond the ego’s need for cheap thrills. By embracing what is inherently sacred about our gayness, we can start to live a soulful life.
