Contemplative Handsome Man

Heaven   -  Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

I grew up Pentecostal – and I’m gay – so I’m totally kicked out of heaven. Bar the door – throw away the key – get the hell out!It was a rough time coming to terms with the way I grew up and the man I was becoming. I’d always had a close relationship with god and fortunately I realized one day that I still had that. The higher power in my life was still there and still loved me.

Over time I’ve ceased to think of heaven as some mystical place we get to when we die – but rather it is all around me all the time. I’m most aware of it in the quiet moments.
When my cat wakes me up with his snoring.
When Harold falls asleep on the couch and I cover him up with the blanket and put away his glasses
When I watch a great movie or read a great book that makes me think about life a new way.
And always always always when I’m grateful.

So that is what I wanted to capture with this picture. A heavenly guy having a quiet heavenly moment.

I hope you have a bit of heaven in your life today.

Wings for Heaven – gay art male art by Michael Taggart Photography

A Wish for Wings - Gay Art Male Art by Michael Taggart Photography

I got a tragic email from one of my fans – G Mann – who let me know his grandson had been found dead.

His family was having a very rough time with everything.

He asked if I had a picture to post with wings and someone heading to heaven.  This isn’t perfectly what he wanted – but I hope you will take a moment and send your thoughts / prayers / support to him and his family.

Thanks You
