Thank you for your nice note about First Congo (as I call it). I have been a member for over 2 years and have really found it home. It is a very welcoming place and has afforded me the opportunity to be a part of a caring and open community.…"
"There are some folks who are trying to find out what the community wants - a committee has formed from Common Bond and a few others, such as myself - the idea is to do a needs/wants assessment and go from there. If there are those on here who would…"
"Well I love this thread - and as usual I will differ in my input. It seems to me that Albuquerque (and Santa Fe for that matter) has a big gay population but no community to speak of. Coming together once a year for Pride does not a community make.…"

Goodness - about me? I am a gay man who came to NM 4+ years ago to simplfiy my life and make some changes. I have undergone surgery and have not lost a total of 268 pounds and feel like a million dollars. Life is really very special when one is well enough to live it. Love to travel, cook (only healthy now), read, sing, and meet new and interesting people and always lookin for love. Single now - after the most confusing relationship of my life - lol - at least i can smile about it - so finding someone special would be a nice activity for 2010.
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
Weather and people and this guy who shall remain nameless
What I'm Reading:
John Adams, Bless Me Altima, and a re-read of Harry Potter books (yes all of them)
