Very cool, I was presented an award on 5/25/21 at the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries,
a virtual event this year.

Listen to the Awards section of the presentation
(My award is at 8:09)

It's also cool that I was given this, even though I do not work for a library or university.

And, this nice thing happened, May 8, 2019...

My sites will be in the Library of Congress.
Here's part of the email they sent me. See article below.

The have since amended their request to also include
Texas Obituary Project and the Houston LGBT History websites

November 2017

I also won OutSmart Gayest & Greatest awards in 2018 and 2019 (I just didn't scan them)

January 2014

As I just can seem to stop adding things to my plate, in 2014 I launched two websites
not related to music. One is for preserving Houston and Texas history, at HoustonLGBTHistory.org

And the other provides obituary data on those we've lost, at
Texas Obituary Project

And there was a very nice story in Outsmart about the site.

And, one more, I am on the team for the Banner Project, a pop-up museum,
of course with its own website under my wing, at
Houston We Have History.org

June 2014

2014 was a pretty good year for me. I was deeply honored to be elected Male Grand Marshal
for the Houston Pride Parade, which included riding in a convertible near the head of the parade,
a feeling that just cannot be described.

Again, I am grateful for a terrific article in Outsmart Magazine on being Grand Marshal

Eric Himan wrote a terrific article for The Advocate, and graciously quote me
