Union J’s George Shelley comes out: ‘I’ve had girlfriends and boyfriends’

“I’m still me. I’m just a little bit less afraid of being myself.”

“What is important to me is that I can be myself” he says. “I don’t feel that I should hide it”.

“I’ve been reading a lot of speculation online about whether I’m gay, or straight, or bi, and it’s all these labels; it’s a little bit old-fashioned, and this is why I’m not going to label it myself, because it’s not something I feel like I can.

“I’ve had girlfriends, that I’ve loved… but I’ve also had boyfriends.

“I just want to know that whether I decide to be with a boy or a girl next, it’s because I love them, and it shouldn’t be a big deal. I don’t want to make a big thing out of it when it happens, and I don’t want to be scared anymore. I don’t want to feel like I can’t be myself because I’m worried about what people might be saying about me, or the label stuff.

“I’m still the same person. I’m still me. I’m just a little bit less afraid of being myself.”

We’re snowed-in here in Baltimore, and it’s making me miss warmer weather, green things, flora…

So here is a beer label I designed and illustrated for Union Craft Brewing’s special spring-time saison that they crafted exclusively for Atomic Books in Hampden. A wonderful pairing of comics “for mutated minds” and a light, fruity ale.

I’ve always wanted to illustrate beer and wine labels and this was a really fun way to dip my toe in. I hope I get the chance to do more!

“It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.” ~ Barack Obama

Free Blacks and the Origin of Memorial Day

by JD THOMAS

The first known observance of Decoration Day (now called Memorial Day) was in Charleston, South Carolina in 1865.

Freedmen (freed enslaved Africans) celebrated at the Washington Race Course, today the location of Hampton Park, and each year thereafter. African Americans founded Decoration Day at the graveyard of 257 Union soldiers and labeled the those Union soldiers buried there the “Martyrs of the Race Course” on May 1, 1865. Few remember that it was Black Charlestonians who created the American tradition of Memorial Day.  [Continue reading at Accessible Archives.]

Buzzfeed: ‘Why are we so afraid to talk about sex? Sex is good. Have you read Song of Solomon?’

We’re not afraid to talk about sex. We just don’t talk about sex the same way that you do because we have a different understanding of what is morally good sex and what is morally bad sex.

As best I can tell, for you good sex is any form of relations between two to 8,000 consenting adults of unlimited gender combinations. Bad sex, you seem to believe, is any non-consensual union. We would also label non-consensual sex as bad sex. But it’s certainly not the only type. The only thing under the category of good sex, we believe, is that which occurs between one man and one woman who have been joined together in holy matrimony, as reflected in Song of Solomon, the Scripture’s great poetic depiction of Christ’s love for his Bride the Church.

So we certainly talk about sex. We teach our kids how babies are made and when engaging in sexual activity is God-pleasing and when it’s sinful. But we don’t like to speak in ways that glorify non-marital sex because we don’t want to condone what God has forbidden. And as for marital sex, we tend to keep a little mum about that because — and I know this might be a novel concept to Millennial BuzzFeeders — it’s private. And I must say I’m a little confused. Do you feel an aching sense of emptiness in your soul because your evangelical aunt isn’t sufficiently regaling you with tales of the night she and Uncle Herb conceived your twin cousins?
