Black Gay Dads Get A Book Deal Thanks To You Guy’s Social Media Outrage & SUPPORT

Posted in Gay Rights, The Yes Gawds


“Laughing all the way to the bank! Thanks Bitches” That was my motto when I first embarked upon this whole Funky Dineva endeavor. When I started with the the wigs and the occasional lipstick, narrow minded people could not get pass the gay of it all to receive the gift of it all. The gay of it all seemed to have trumped the intellect of it, the humor of it, and the brilliance of it all. I know first hand that this is a sentiment that Kordale Lewis understands all too well. I heard a quote the other day that said something along the lines of “we will throw a party, forgive, and love a murderer, but hate a gay for loving a man” Kind of deep huh?

The framed photo above garnered Kordale Lewis and his partner Kaleb so much attention, that Kordale was offered a book deal. The fact that the photo sparked so much outrage is evidentiary of how love starved our world is. Oh well, as the old adage goes, “when life gives you lemons, turn it into lemonade”.  That’s exactly what Kordale did!

Gay Dad Reveals the Real Story Behind their Popular Family Picture

Atlanta – Kordale Lewis, one of two gay fathers who appeared in a selfie with two of his biological children, has released his much-anticipated memoir, “Picture Perfect?” with hopes to answer some of the many questions he got when the picture went viral, reaching people in all parts of the world, including Spain, France, Japan, Great Britain, Russia, the West Indies, and South America.

When Lewis, 25, snapped a picture of him and his partner, Kaleb, 25, brushing his daughters’ hair for school, he thought nothing of it. “I just thought it would be a cool picture, so I posted it on Facebook and then to Instagram,” he says. Although he had posted other family photos with him, Kaleb and their three children (son Kordale Jr. was not pictured in the viral selfie), this particular picture seemed to endear itself to people all over the world. “I think it was so interesting to so many people because it showed two black dads actively taking care of their kids and just loving them.”

THE YES GAWDS – Travales Blount

Posted in The Yes Gawds



I began running track at the age of 6, and right away I knew that I was a natural sprinter. Growing up I also played football, and did so until high school. During my junior year, after winning the state title in the 4X100 m relay and continually being told by recruiters I was too small to play running back at a division I program, I decided to focus exclusively on track & field. I trained hard and earned a partial athletic scholarship to the University of South Florida. Although USF said there would be additional funds going forward and in all likelihood a full scholarship by senior year, it was not enough money for me to sign there and I attended a local community college instead, thinking my days of competition were behind me. For many years that was true.
