    Awwww!!!! KD has come a long way! I Started reading this blog a few days after it opened… Still miss oldies like Dennis Macaulay + his very very interesting weekly series(I remember how he screwed his straight friend who he offered to house 😅), Chizzie (trouble maker, who knew everyone…lol), Francis (resident Doctor), Trystham, Just James (the sweet youngie) and one married man (King,I believe) who was always cursed out here…lol. among others too numerous to mention.

    God bless you pinkie for creating this platform. I have introduced KD to every of my friend and LGBT folks I come across with from all works of life/countries, so much so that at one time they thought I owned it.

    Reading KD helped me mature in a lot of ways and realize that I was not alone. It made me better grasp my self worth as a young gay man, learn there was more to sexuality and queerness… Although recently, it appears not to be as interesting a read as it used to be from way back 😩

    Sending love and light to you all…. 6 years down forever to go!!!

    Whatever happened between Dennis Macaulay and Pinkie should be solved… Those his stories were really something!!!!!!!

    To everyone who’s shared his story — giving us the liberty to share your experience with you — A “THANK YOU” as collosal as the world is not enough.

    Pinky, your idea of of this blog has been of immense help to our lives. Thank you for your devotion and doggedness to keeping us in the know and bringing this community of celestial beings together.

    Here’s 🍷🍸🍻🍹 to 6 years of superlative valour.

    To the struggles and journey of being different and self-acceptance.

    To our lost heroes whose voices declared our hopes and dreams.

    To the activists whose unalloyed and dautless efforts continue to give us hope for equal rights and freedom.

    To us who – despite the homophobia in a society that threatens our own very life to live – keep surviving, thriving and living.

    Let’s do this again and again and again💪

    Happy 6TH Anniversary to you KD!!!

    You’ve made a positive mark in a world where being different is something to be frowned upon especially being an African.

    In the midst of an oppressive and homophobic system, you gave us a space to express ourselves irregardless of our different backgrounds with our sexualities, faith, educational backgrounds and what have you. We are able to express our trials, toils, hopes and beautiful talents(writing-wise) and shared stories and ideas that have been life saving and eye opening.

    I hope for you to keep up with your great work, never to kowtow to the ignorance and oppression that might come in your way now or in the future and continue to make an impact in this world for us and our future generation.

    Posterity will indeed remember you and treat you very kindly KD.
    Cheers and thank you Pink Panther and all your associates who make sure this blog is always up and running.

    You inspire us all KD ❤️
