Like most people, the first time I met Terry Wilsey, I found him irksome and crude. He talked and walked funny, he asked strange questions apropros of nothing, he was unkempt and disorganized, he was obsessed with all things G-A-Y in a way that felt a bit cartoonish. Were it not for the natural affinity his partner, Dr. Walter...
Two new LGBTQIA housing units for vulnerable persons, which flowed from the love of two gay men for each other, have now opened in Las Vegas. A third building may be in the works. Bright Star Foundation owns and operates two four-plexes in an area near the Boulevard Mall, just off Maryland Parkway. The buildings have 17 bedrooms that are...
Just a few months ago, more than 50 percent of the U.S. population claimed they wouldn’t take the COVID-19 vaccination when it became available. Those numbers have changed in recent days and by late December, nearly 60 percent to 65 percent of Americans say they will receive the vaccine when available. Victor Wong, DO from Mountain View Hospital said,...
The Spectrum will be going into our third year in 2021. Like everyone else, we’ve had a tough year. We’ve struggled to get the magazine published. We succeeded most months. In 2021 our plan is to publish bi-monthly and to focus on our digital presence. Watch for Publisher Rob Schlegel to debut his Rob's Spectrum View in January. You...
Helping. Passion. Commitment. These are characteristics of our brother, Terry Wilsey, that we have seen and experienced our entire lives. Terry was always our “big brother.” Sadly, Terry left this earth much too early on Dec. 19, 2020. We are sure that he was amid many commitments and had a mind full of ideas for the next way to...
I hope you noticed we didn’t have a December issue of the Spectrum. Thanks to the COVID-19 restrictions, there just wasn’t enough advertising to pay the printer, the postage, etc. We are back but we’ll be going bi-monthly until business is back to normal. I want to thank Gov. Steve Sisolak. As many readers know, I’ve been unhappy with...
2020 was a “Foundation” year and designed to show us what’s most important. It was spiritual awareness to our growth; and in many ways we were “forced” to recognize and honor our priorities. Isolation, loss and money worries were (and still are for many) center stage. There will (still) be a holding-back energy on gatherings until the end of March...
As the New Year approaches, this is the perfect time for reflection on the choices and actions we have made during the last 12 months. Did we choose to act with kindness and consideration? Did we follow the route that led us further along the path to spiritual development? Did we travel consciously aware of our physical and spiritual...
This is the most important election of our lifetime. I bet you’ve heard that this year, right? I know I have; my auto fill almost finished the sentence for me as I typed. But I’m writing it again here now because it’s true. There have been so many things to be afraid of this year. There have been moments of...
We thought that headline might grab your attention. We thought about this, after hearing Judge Amy Coney Barrett proclaim she is “pro-life.” Again, in this issue of the Spectrum, we’re offering the Spectrum Voter Endorsement Guide. Our volunteer group of community leaders have gone through and evaluated every race, as we jokingly say, from President to dog catcher and everything...
