I had nothing in common with the gay men represented in mainstream media. He is a contributing editor at The American Prospect and a contributing writer at Salon. Smith not only takes inspiration from past poets like Essex Hemphill but also prioritizes the politics of being black and queer in America, a nation that has been built on violence committed against the disenfranchised. The authors of a study of the down-low on Craigslist. I have always admired gay men who are confident in themselves. The more I rejected my true self, the more I became an outsider.

We were both curious I guess. As a black, gay man I suffered an identity crisis. But there was a first-string dude that I was buddies with where things used to happen.
