I used to think anyone doing anything weird was weird. Now I know that it's the people that call others weird that are not weird. The Jewelry Man.talking in codes and hoping you're smart enough to read between the lines.

In "I'm not a switch hitter.really" news, the out of work homey Raz-B of B2K fame recently announced that he's playing a gay character in a forthcoming episode of 'Noah's Arc.'

Oh really EbenGregory.you mean he's gonna be playing games on the Logo network, the cable channel geared toward the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community?

Yes.

The Jewelry Man is informed that in addition to promoting two DVDs that document his post-B2K transition-'Prince & The Wiseman Present: Life After B2K' and 'B2K Unchained,' Raz-B is playing a gay man.

Here's Raz-B to Blackvoices.aol.com on playing a gay character on the Logo Network's new show "Noah's Arc": I play a gay character in the episode, which centers on HIV and AIDS. There wasn't any kissing or anything of that nature. It was a very, very positive role. It was to raise the awareness for kids with HIV and the kids who have AIDS. That's our demographic. Fifty percent of those people are our people. I felt like it was a mature decision for me to play a gay character.

Hmm.was it a mature decision to perform last July at the Oakland International Black Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Film Festival & Pride Celebration?

Here's Raz-B to Blackvoices.aol.com on playing a gay character that may potentially fuel rumors that he's a candidate for Sausage Party membership: The rumors and stuff like that, I don't really care. I don't let anything kind of really hold me back. I kind of got tired of being like, if I got a gay friend I can't hang around them without someone thinking that we're dating or we're doing something together. I just want to let people know that I am a supporter, and I'm a strong supporter.

Okay. And speaking of Brokeback.

Here's some gender nuetral jewelry being dropped by EbenGregory on Raz B playing a gay character that doesn't kiss: I have heard of a dog that barked at every stranger who approached his master's premises with clothes on, but was easily quieted by a naked R&B singer.

And speaking of being neutral.try adding color to my space: MySpace.com/ebengregory.
