Thanks for all your offers to host the LGCMA site. JD Doyle is going to take
it over. But, it will no longer be an organization so much as a listing of
gay CW performers. If you will allow me, I have some parting words...
This is wonderful, very important work we are doing. However, we are in a
cultural war. And, unfortunately, our music is a weapon. I want to caution
everyone against becoming bitter, if you don't achieve the success you deserve.
If being successful is more important than working for cultural change, then
this can all result in bitterness. We have to have other ways of making money
to live on and having health insurance, etc. We may not be the ones who
achieve success. But we are paving the way for others, in the future. Somebody has

Love to you all, --Doug
Amen and AMEN Brother!!!
Thank you for your words of encouragement.
What a wonder you are Doug! Thank you for all you have contributed to our
And thank you to JD Doyle for adding yet another HAT to your rather LONG
WALL of Hats... ; )
We are the pioneers in our industry at this time.
Because of artists like you Doug, the ones that come after us will be able

But I also know this ... living in the digital age ... our work will
certainly NOT die with us. It will live on for as long as people have access to
computers and the Internet, and have the freedom to search for the artists and
type of music they long for. This is why people like JD Doyle and others who
do (or have done) these special collections of sexually diverse music online
are so important. Thank God for you guys! Cause you are the ones who are
preserving (and even digging up) our history. In fact, (in my opinion) there
needs to be more thought and talk going on about establishing a fund to insure
that our communities various music sites maintain for many years to come.
With my Highest Respect!!
Your Brother in arms and peer,
