50 something (almost 60) openly gay black male who, for much of my adult life, have resided in Washington DC. With the exception of a few years during the 80's that I lived in NYC. Freelance documentary photographer and writer whose body of work attempts to document the times while also shedding light on my personal story. Many different interests. Been known to attend various circuit events including the Saint's Black and White parties in NYC as well as the Winter Party Festival at South Beach. As a bedroom dj I enjoy creating music mixes that are more geared toward the gay club or circuit scene. Visit my Mixology archive at http://elvertbarnes.com/Mixology.
