My New Year’s resolution is to be more spiritually and physically keen, thus every year I engage in a cleansing fast that consists of abstaining from meats/flesh as well as only organic fruits, vegetables, grains and herbs. I believe we should all strive to live our best life the full year!

My resolution is to track developments in the latest push to pass an alleged religious freedom bill in Georgia without anti-discrimination protections. I’ll be sharing Georgia Voice’s news updates and using my social media accounts to spotlight the lawmakers and businesses in Georgia too dense to heed the 2015 economic lessons of Indiana. If you choose to support discrimination
My New Year’s resolution is to share more about my background as a gay Latino living with HIV; it is not as challenging as it may seem and I’d like to share my testimony. In 2016, I will work to bridge the gap between the mainstream LGBT community and the Latino LGBT communities. We can accomplish so much more united. My favorite quote: “Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Create It.”
My New Year’s resolutions include: doing more cardio and diversifying my workouts, eating less pizza and working on my road rage!
In the year 2016, I plan to continue to educate black women on hair care and beauty through my YouTube channel, “Silverline’s Beauty Playbook” as well as learn a new language with the help of Rosetta Stone. Also, getting my body in the best possible shape is also on my to-do-list.

This year I will take the plunge and final- ly get my own business off the ground. I’ve worked so hard trying to achieve success as others see it. This year I will work towards my own dreams. Life is too short to not experiment. I will not fear the opinions of others. I will not conform to what’s expected of me. Instead, I will do what makes my heart sing. My mantra for 2016 is “Be Brave!”
I recently tripped and dislocated my shoulder while on a run. I’m recovering quickly but it cramped my style for a bit. So my resolution is to do everything I can to end up stronger than before. And as I get there, I plan to spend more time with family and friends, donate more time to community organizations I care about and encourage people to get out and vote.

My resolution is to appreciate and acknowledge that everyone is dealing with something in their lives even when they don’t say it. I want to be quicker in recognizing this instead of taking things personally.
I want to enjoy the outdoors more often and also take care of myself better.
My New Year’s resolution is to be more present. Not only is it a reminder to be more aware in the moment, but it also serves as a recommitment to my role as an advocate and activist. One of the easiest ways to contribute to creating change is to simply show up whenever possible. So this year I want to be more present and demonstrate my solidarity by attending more rallies, workshops, and fundraisers.
My New Year’s resolution is to get more organized so I can find things. Yes, like everyone I want to get in shape, but my focus is to get more organized so my girlfriend doesn’t bitch at me. I tend to lose important things, like my engagement ring, my wallet, and more. So, I am getting organized in 2016!
