Andresflava celebrats 5 yrs Blogging

Wow where has the time gone. Its been 5 yrs in the game and we here at Andresflava has had many up and downs and we have also have alot of controverseries along the well as well as good times that has allowed us to be standing strong for so long even when i wanted to throw in the towel.

I gave birth to my blog on Sept 19, 2005 back then i was known as "lauderdaleboi1500" I had just came back from the Black Gay Men's Health Summit in Brooklyn, New York where i met alot of the movers and shakers in the Black Gay Community at the time with the likes of Frank Leon Roberts, Keith Boykin, Dr. Sheldon Fields, Dr. Leo Wilton, the late Shelton Jackson and countless others who at the moment i can not think of but that conference which was under People of Color in Crisis the leading HIV/AIDS agency at the time to put together the New York Black Pride did an excellent job of having some of the top leaders in the community to come to gether just before pride to come up with ways and ideas to better our community and this is when i knew i wanted to make a difference in the lives of people in our community as well as let my vouce be heard.

Through out the month here on Andresflava we will be taking a look back at where we have gone and where we are goin so sit back and enjoy as we celebrate 5 years stong in the Blogsphere.
