What I’ve Been Reading Online

Jim Burroway

January 26th, 2008

I have my Google RSS Reader loaded with several score of blogs and web sites feeding me several hundred posts each day. It’s partly how I keep up with what’s going on. I’ve managed to collect a lot of interesting and boring links along the way. They are almost all North American, with a smattering of European and Russian blogs sprinkled in here and there.

There aren’t many gay blogs from Africa. But I ran across one, Gay Uganda, a few weeks ago. Whenever his posts pop up on my RSS reader, they always stand out for being the most lyrical of all the standard-issue blogs that flash across my desktop. Gay Uganda, who remains unnamed, waxes poetic (often literally poetic) about being gay in Africahis life with his partner in Kampala, and the greater kuchu (gay) community there.

Sen. Barak Obama wrote a book called The Audacity of Hope. I haven’t read it, but I’ve always loved the title. Gay Uganda shows us how audacious hope can be. And along the way, he shows us what beauty is also.
