Actually, I got an email about being a top writer in LGBTQ three or four days after I started writing on Medium.

I’m not entirely sure, but I think it’s an algorithm thing, much like the now-disappearing Most Viewed Writer thing on Quora.

I noticed the “This Happened To Me” status yesterday, though I see the email is dated the 11th of February.

I haven’t been conscious of using that tag. I must owe a debt of thanks to the perspicacious Darren Stehle, of Th-Ink Queerly,, for his skillful use of tags.

Fame, indeed. Lol.

I am glad to have a place to write, though!


Writer. Runner. Marine. Airman. Former LGBTQ and HIV activist. Former ActUpNY and Queer Nation. Polyglot. Middle-aged, uppity faggot.
