Morning Edition - 5/25/05

Breathe Bitch Conglomerate Created
The announcement of a Breathe Bitch Gathering in NYC on June 3, has generated a positive response from our Morning Edition crew. In light of this, we are creating the Breathe Bitch Conglomerate – a group of women and gay men who will gather to share their life experiences and create a positive friendship network of open-minded individuals. Initially, there will be two divisions – the New York Breathing Bitches (NYBB) and the Washington, DC Breathing Bitches (DCBB). The NYBB’s June 3 meeting will set the mood for future NYBB gatherings – including setting the tone for meeting venues (ie. clubs, bars, etc.) and the style (preferably, laid-back and inclusive). Since Annette initiated the first gathering for the NYBB, she will be the NYBB division head. The first person from DC to volunteer can be the DCBB division head. As it stands, there is a July 16 gathering in DC for the ABA Crew. We will make this the first interstate Breathe Bitch Conglomerate (BBC) gathering as well. Whomever is designated as the DCBB will coordinate a location to meet/party in DC and will act as host for the event. The intention is to have fun, share and network. Please feel free to forward to your fellow girlfriends and gay guy friends at will and use our comments section to give ideas on how to make these gatherings interesting and fun. There is no pressure to have any agendas or activities, so everyone relax and enjoy. For those participating – Welcome to the BBC!

American Idol Ends – Minorities Need Not Apply
Bo Bice and Carrie Underwood will stand side-by-side to hear who season four’s American Idol is. Last night’s performance showed both contestants to be great, distinctive voices, but very different in their own right. Bice, a self-proclaimed rocker and Underwood a pristine country girl are likely to divide the country pretty evenly. AOL polls have Bice taking the prize by over ¾ of the vote. Since the entire season has been a vote-shocker, we will all wait for tonight’s 9 p.m. live Fox broadcast from the Kodak Theater in Hollywood to find out.

This afternoon we will put Lady Long Legs On Blast with: Are you willing to be the other woman or the other man? If so, why? So, stay tuned….

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Please add me to the list. I have one question...Are non-gay male not invited? And if they are Welcome, please let's try to make them feel so with a hospitable invitation...
Location and Time Please?
Regards,

J'Moo... the overwhelming response has been that straight men will NOT be included in the BBC. Mainly because the BBC is attempting to create a forum for women and gay men to discuss relationship issues (among others) without the tension that may ensue with male straight participants in attendance. Eventually, an event can be planned to include bringing the "partners" of BBC folks, but for now, let's just say the BBC is NOT a group for straight men.

J'Moo...if you're identifying as straight (this week - wink, wink) please let us know when that status changes and we will be sure to include you on future invites

Sr. Cruz! I have a question to throw into the Blast! pot. When should it be a problem that someone dates outside their race? The reason I ask, is that I met someone recently who claims they've never dated a black man and don't care to. Ultimately, I think it's a person's perogative to date whoever they want, but, I don't know, it seems that sometimes people date outside their race for the wrong pretenses. I'm interested to know what others think since we are very open minded people.

Thanks!
Shey
