49, Christian/Celtic Shaman, Registered Republican, Ex-military, Gay, Leo/Ox.I’m a dualistic individual, my Leo/Sagittarian nature, which I, over the years, have always struggled with, to developed balance within my life. Consequently, I’m a strong blend of both tough and tender, yang and yin, animus and anima. I’m a Christian / Celtic spiritualist / Shaman, a registered Republican, and gay. I’m passionate about gay civil rights, history, and my faith. I enjoy weight training, hiking, camping, and my friends. I dislike judgmental people, bigotry, homophobia, self-righteousness, and oppression. I’m strongly opinionated, but know I’m not always right, nor is it ‘my way or the highway’. I’m an Episcopalian by association, but a free spirit at my core. I spent fifteen years with the military and, because of personal integrity, I outed myself to my commanding officer in 2002 and was discharged. I believe that Integrity, Loyalty, and Charity are more than just “nice ideals”, but are a way of living; a soldier’s path, if you will.
