I'm John Kwiatkowski. I live in Houston, TX, and manage a bookstore in Sugarland, TX. That means I own way too many books, and spend too much time reading. I just turned 30 in November, and have been having the best year of my life. My husband Matt and I just bought our first house in April. The process was stressful, but so worth it when I come home from work every night. Although, I sometimes doubt how worth it the whole thing was when I'm mowing the lawn in the Texas heat.
I was originally born in Delaware, but moved to Texas with my family in 1989. I've been in Houston for nine years, and love everything about the city. When I first moved here, I worked in a gay bookstore/coffee shop. It was one of the best jobs I ever had, and one that I still miss everyday. When I'm not working, or reading I love to go see live concerts and stage productions. Every week, I get together with a group of friends for Gay Movie Saturday. We hang out and watch GLBT themed movies that we haven't seen before.
I met John when we followed each other on Twitter and I asked him to be a face of the day. At first he was reticent about appearing alongside people like Billie Myers and poets and movie makers, but I assured him that the whole point of this blog is that GLBT folks are regular people, so that's what I'm looking for. Thanks for contributing your face and story, John!
