Memoirs of a Gay Leather Elder: Four Decades in the Tribe

I am the old guy in blue, presiding over a formal celebration. 
You can read about this Covering Ceremony, here.

I looked at my list of upcoming topics that I am going to write about (232 of them, so far), and I realized that I have inadvertently started writing the first draft of my book(s).  I also regret not having planned this out better.  These stories just started pouring out!
