Opinion

Thank you. When Norm Kent died in April, my business partner Justin Wyse and I had no idea what the future would hold for South Florida Gay News. It quickly became clear the business model was not sustainable, and we shut the company down.

There has been a lot of speculation as to what would happen if (G*d forbid) Donald Trump is elected president in 2024. A natural-born authoritarian, Trump might seek to govern in the image of Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Turkey’s Recep Erdogan, Hungary’s Viktor Orban and other dictators. Trump himself denied the charge somewhat, saying that he would only be a dictator on “Day One. We’re closing the border, and we’re [oil] drilling, drilling, drilling. After that, I’m not a dictator.” In other forums, Trump also promised to use the powers of the presidency to evade justice and punish his enemies.

Greetings OutSFL readers, Robby from Brooklyn here who is now Robby from Wilton Manors! A former Fort Lauderdale resident in the early 2010s I moved back to NYC for my family. Cut to 2016 when dad and sis vote for Trump and continue to vote Republican. I packed up my bags and left for good this summer. I LOVE being back in South Florida, minus the horrific political landscape for our community.

This morning, as I sat on our dock at high tide, I introduced Edna Mae Coons to the joy, beauty, and comfort of our home in Wilton Manors. I did so by speaking to the plastic bag in which she arrived and reading her obituary to the New River and to several beautiful places in our garden.
