Happy New Year & what's to come in 2012...


SQUARE ONE events have been a labor of love since started in 2008. I remember meeting the artists and performers, who have become very near and dear to me, for the very first time. A lot of wonderful memories have been made and it seems like I have been nonstop busy since those first days.


With the growing popularity of our two annual events, 2011 saw our very first two-night event with this past November's COSMOPOLITAN. It's always been said that it's better to go out while on top then to fizzle away. And with that said, I've decided to take a break with SQUARE ONE events in 2012 while on top and at my strongest.

No, this is not the very end of SQUARE ONE events altogether. I will be helping out with the 15th Anniversary of Festa Italiana (March 29 to April 1, 2012) and Pride & Passion at the Tampa Museum of Art (May 19, 2012), and hope to come back reenergized this fall.

I want to personally THANK every single one of you for the continuous and endless support throughout the years! I look forward to staying in touch with you all.

Happy New Year! May 2012 bring you unlimited happiness and success!

Much Love,

Okie

Square One Spotlights: Nicolas G. Janovsky, author

SQUARE ONE Spotlights: Nicolas G. Janovsky, author

SQUARE ONE chose to highlight author Nicolas G. Janovsky for this month's spotlight edition. Nicolas is a first-time author whose debut non-fiction book, titled Gay: A New Path Forward, is being released on Sunday, October 16, 2011 with an Official Book Release Party at Collage Ybor in Tampa, Florida on the same evening. I sat down with Nick recently for a lil' Q&A.


Okesene Tilo: Hello Nick. Thank you for taking time to sit down with me for this month's Square One Spotlight. Could you describe your book Gay: A New Path Forward and the reasons why you wrote it?

Nicolas Janovsky: My goal is to enlighten non-Gays by offering them ways to talk to and about Gays in their lives. Through this I aim to put an end to the stereotyping that plagues everyday language and society and that sets Gays apart from the rest of humanity. Also creating better family and working environments for Gays. If society could talk about Gays the way they talk about race, non-Gays would soon discover that their Gay friends and family members were just like them. If we can achieve this I believe all individuals would be noted as different in the same manner that people are short, tall, white, black, smart but not otherwise different just because of their sexuality.

OT: What qualifies you as an author to write a book on gay life?

NJ: From the time I was in elementary school I knew that I was Gay. In living with this knowledge my whole life I have worked for years to organize my words and thoughts into a book that could explain to my friends, coworkers and peers that being Gay isn’t a choice. Further I sought the counsel of those whom I speak about and gained their perspective and insight.

From my own wealth of experiences and successes combined with the insight and unique experiences of close friends from their educational achievements, professional advancement and family dynamics. Their life stories combined with my ideas, thoughts, gradients and systems allowed me to create a whole and complete project.

OT: With the book being 104+ pages, do you ever feel that the book could've been and/or should've been longer to fully express your view?

NJ: Well actually the book is published as 132 pages. There is a plethora of information, details, new knowledge and real life experiences within these 132 pages. I wanted my book to be direct, concise and not watered down with frivolous writings.

As one reviewer stated: “I am also amazed that Janovsky was able to put so much information into just over 100 pages. But those hundred pages can make a big difference in many lives. There is a section on gay terms or a gay glossary and I learned something here myself—I know what a squirrel was but its meaning has changed and I have never heard of Gay Death being at age 30 but I guess we are never too old to learn.”

OT: Do you think having the word "Gay" in big, bold red letters will distract any of your target audience from purchasing the book or reading it in public?

NJ: I was quite nervous about this and I have an introductory paragraph on this. I had a deep-rooted feeling of nervousness that those close to me may shy away from the book because the title turned them off. Further people may be nervous about reading the book or carrying it around in public with big red letters screaming GAY! I knew if I gave into this I would be surrendering to all that which I wish to eradicate from society though this text.

OT: It's inevitable for the topics that your book covers NOT to receive nay saying from other groups who do not agree with your views, what do you say to those groups? How are you hoping to persuade them to your side?

NJ: By giving insight to my life, using practical language, going step by step through gay life, gay culture, family relationships, professional ways of existence, confronting stereotypes, giving supporting verbiage from others, their unique experiences and comparing each of these with supporting information the readers can choose to work for a more equal and accepting society. It is my sincerest hope they do.

OT: So now that you've wrapped up your first book and with your book release party and book release date just a mere days away, what's next on your goals for the end of this year and next year?

NJ: Complete the Susan G. Komen 3-Day 60-mile walk for breast cancer for my third consecutive & final year, continue volunteering for causes near to my heart, complete numerous speaking and book signing events to spread the knowledge within my book far and wide while working to gain better acceptance for all in society by activism and using my voice.


Gay: A New Path Forward will be released on October 16, 2011 on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com, and eBook compatible for Kindle.

The official book release party with author signing & a performance by Jeremy Gloff will take place at Collage Ybor located at 1701 East 8th Avenue in Tampa, Florida starting at 5:30pm.
