A BEATING HEART

Orlando’s club Pulse owes its name and spirit to ‘loving brother’ who died from AIDS

Barbara Poma’s big brother taught her the necessities — how to apply her makeup, how to highlight her lush hair, how to be fabulously fashion forward.

To her, John was not gay, not just a politically-charged label.

He was, in her words, her “loving brother.”

As teens in the beachside town of Fort Lauderdale, nestled along Florida’s southeastern coast, John introduced her, at age 14, to his mysterious, dynamic world, a vibrant, sexy, underground realm that came alive overnight in bars and clubs. There, with John at her side, Barbara learned how to party — and love unconditionally — inside these spaces that were safe for all.

Then on Feb. 13, 1991, her brother died. He had battled for years with HIV, at a time when thousands of gay men were robbed of their lives in the height of the AIDS epidemic.

IT’S BEEN 19 VERY LONG DAYS

I was about today, running errands.

I’d seen the covers of more magazines covering Prince.

I knew I had to get me some!

Drove myself to Barnes & Nobles and got my stash.

People, Newsweek and Time …. exclusively for him.

People and Rolling Stone … covers.

Have a lot of catching up to do.

Miss you, Prince!!

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

~~The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement~~

In late 2009 Prince Ea, upset at the present state of the music industry, decided to form a movement named “Make ‘SMART’ Cool”. The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement (SMART is an acronym for “Sophisticating Millions And Revolutionizing Thought“) attempts to “promote intelligence to everyone, everywhere and integrate it with hip-hop.

To create and nurture, without discrimination or preference, a community of free-thinking individuals under the singular purpose of promoting the ideals of education, intelligence, unity and creativity throughout the world at large.”
