If you didn’t know already, my name is Anthony. This is my blog!
Thank you for even taking time out of your day to read my content. I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my soul. I write to entertain.
Writing for me is EVERYTHING. It’s beyond therapeutic at this point.
Being a black gay man has not always been an easy walk in the park. Over 10 years ago, I wanted to share my truth and the whole truth with the world. I didn’t want to feel judged anymore, rejected and criticized for being who I am.
I came up with the name JBA (Just Being Anthony) because for so long I wanted to appease everybody but deep down inside I felt so empty. Coming into the community at the age of 16 I quickly realized you had to partake in a role. I never considered myself masculine or feminine. I never cared to be a strict TOP or BOTTOM. I truly wanted to just be myself.
NO RESTRICTIONS. NO LIMITATIONS. NO JUDGEMENT.
It took me a long time to embrace myself. But when I did I didn’t look back… I refused to allow any man to try to create me into the person he wanted me to be vs. the person I was truly able to identify with internally.
Just Being Anthony isn’t just a name for myself but was something many of you could relate to as well. With over 1 million views and thousands of shares and support. I was able to turn my personal blog into a community hotspot where I spoke my mind unapologetically with no fears or concerns about what others thought.
At the age of 31, I am truly in love with the man I have become and will continue to grow into in this crazy thing we call life. I am beyond thankful for the love and support. I want you guys to understand that it’s okay to not fit into the stereotypes and the norms of the community. You can be masculine and feminine, fem top and masculine bottom. Love who you choose to love and do not allow anybody else to make you feel like you are less.
