Falling In Love With The Gym?

I'm sure a good majority of us have struggled with going to and/or liking the gym. But is there a way to overcome this? Hornet asked a personal trainer for 5 tips on falling in love with the gym. They are as follows:

1. Hire a trainer
2. Make a plan
3. Check your heart rate
4. Get new gear
5. Get a new gym

Admittedly, I'm on the fence with a few of these tips. They seem more suited to help one get results versus actually falling in love with the act and process of going to the gym on a consistent basis. With that being said, what are your tips for learning to love the gym?

#RandomTandemPod - Episode 39 "#DemRitas" feat. Trillificent

An honor. A privilege.

The gorgeous and hilarious ladies over at the Random Tandem podcast invited me on to speak a little about pride. The conversation was "sponsored" by pineapple-ritas on their end and wine on mine. After a brief history lesson, I happily answered questions the ladies had about the LGBT community. Listen, laugh, and enjoy!

Say His Name, Nino Fortson

The first known transgender man homicide has occurred. He is the 10th known transgender victim of the year.

Nino Fortson, a 36, was shot to death in Atlanta. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fortson was involved in an argument with two men and two women in the street. Witnesses claim that he fired a shot in the air and walked away, before later hearing more gunshots. The witness account then states that they saw Fortson lying on the ground while one of the people involved in the initial argument limped away. Fortson later died at Grady Memorial Hospital.

As usual, Fortson was misgendered and dead named by the media.

According to the Atlanta Police Department, "Our preliminary investigation did not in any way indicate that this individual identified as transgender. And we have no evidence at all that such an identification played any role in this death. But given the issues that have been raised publicly, we have engaged our LGBT liaisons and asked them to work with our homicide unit to see if there are angles that need to be explored."

Justice for Nino Fortson.

‘God Made You Like That And Loves You Like That’

Pope Francis allegedly told a survivor of clerical sexual abuse that his being gay didn't matter and that God loves him as-is. The recipient of this __ was Juan Carlos Cruz, a survivor of child abuse at the hands of Rev. Fernando Karadima.

The actual quote from the Pop (according to Cruz) was, "Juan Carlos, the fact that you’re gay doesn’t matter. God made you like that, and he loves you like that, and I don’t care."

Unwilling to confirm or deny the alleged statement, the Vatican stated that it usually does not comment on the Pope's private conversations.

Do you think these words will have any bearing on how the Catholic church views homosexuality? The Pope has been kind in speech towards the LGBT community, but are his views enough to sway the hearts and thoughts of those they have held less than favorable views of homosexuality? Time will tell. In the meantime, it is nice to see a gay man be encouraged by the Pope's words.
