I’ve been doing some housecleaning around Sugarbutch since I now have some serious time on my hands. Perhaps you noticed by, for example, the four posts in a row on Monday and the articles (like My Evolving Masculinity Part Two from yesterday) that I’ve been promising for ages.
I also keep meaning to post some of my upcoming events, and a personal invitation to you reading to come and join me in New York City and beyond.
