Yowza! As 2018 unfolds, Wyattevans.com will be bigger, badder and bolder!
First, let me thank each and every one of you for making Wyattevans.com the go-to-it online destination for news, views, features, and entertainment for the LGBTQ Community and its Allies! More than 100 countries visit my online home regularly. I’m proud and overjoyed!
In 2017, Wyattevans.com published thought-provoking articles and provocative features on relationships, HIV, depression, romance, the escorting biz, sex in prison, and other issues that acutely impact the LGBTQ Community and its Allies. Of course, this will be a staple for the New Year.
And let me assure you that my ongoing series of exclusives on Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse (IPV/A)–known as domestic violence and abuse within the LGBTQ Community–will be a hallmark of Wyattevans.com for 2018.
Sadly and unfortunately, IPV/A is that “elephant in the room:” way too often, this despicable, demoralizing and (at times) life-threatening cycle of behavior is “swept under the rug.” Therefore, it is not addressed. This results in the perpetuation of this cycle of abuse. Over and over again.
In this shiny new year, you followers will read even more informative, riveting and inspiring personal stories of IPV/A victims and survivors–as well as continuing news and data on this critical societal issue. These articles and features will be syndicated in other publications, including Huffington Post Queer Voices and WeSurviveAbuse.com, created by Tonya GJ Prince, a leading Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA) Advocate, Specialist, Speaker…and Survivor.
Now, lemme give one helluva Shout-Out and Thank You! to the so on-point Guest Columnists for Wyattevans.com! These include LaToya Hankins, R.L. Norman, Carlton R. Smith. I’m so fortunate that they will continue to share their dynamic voices, their wealth of experience, and unique perspectives with myself and you readers. And, Wyattevans.comwill be adding more of these distinctive voices to the melting pot.
So, in addition to being the creator of, and writer/editor/reporter for Wyattevans.com, what else is Yours Truly up to in 2018?
- IPV/A seminars and workshops across the country. I will continue to shine a bright light on this horrendous cycle of behavior.
- Radio Show. My broadcasts will return later this year, in its current incarnation…or something brand new! I’ll welcome an array of diverse, exciting and compelling guests—with their unique points of view.
- “Nothing Can Tear Us Apart” series of novels. I’m feverishly (LOL) crafting and penning the sequel to “FRENZY!” Get ready for more provocative, gripping, explosive—and tasty (AHEM!) entertainment! I want to thank all of you for making this groundbreaking series (including the current “FRENZY!”) such a success and conversation piece.
- Surprises, Collaborations. More news and details to come.
You know, 2017 was quite the challenging year for the minority and LGBTQ communities, largely because of the shocking election of “The Orange One.” His destructive policies are shredding the social safety net. Meanwhile, his divisive attitudes are pushing Americans back to a time of racial unenlightenment. And, his attitudes appear to make it easier for certain Americans to exhibit these backward perspectives and points of view.
So, how can we thrive and succeed? Last year, I wrote “Refuge from the Storm,” an inspirational and empowering piece about how you can do just that. Check it out at wyattevans.com/refuge-from-the-storm.
There you have it. My year is gonna be bigger, badder and bolder! And Y’all are gonna be the beneficiaries.
Seize The Year!!!
