Pumkin is my playa name.
And, it will once again serve as my Burning Man name when I return to Black Rock City later this year. I was fortunate enough to score a ticket to the event in today’s Direct Group ticket sale. As one of the many leaders of Mudskipper’s Urban Decay Cafe, I was able to participate in the select sale and cut through the many hassles of procuring a ticket.
On my old blog, I wrote many times about how BM changed my life. It removed my inhibitions and helped me take that all-important step of coming out of the closet. It has introduced me to some of the most incredible friends I have ever made. And, in the many years I have gone since my virgin year in 1995, I have experienced a different Burning Man every single year.
We read of the many people who claim the event has gone corporate and too mainstream. The only response I have is that every participant gets out of it what he or she puts into it. You determine your own experience and destiny while a resident of Black Rock City. Just leave your judgement at the door and have fun.
And speaking of experiences, if you are unaware of Burning Man, take a look at the video below. It is a wonderful documentary about one of the more popular gay camps Glamcocks. You will also very much enjoy the eye candy.
