Blog Editor – Garland Guidry
“We are all unique. The creator broke the molds after forming each one of us. Therefore, remember that nobody can be you, better than you can.
Hello, my name is Garland Guidry and I am originally from Slidell Louisiana. I was motivated to move to California in hopes of utilizing and expanding my many talents. Upon arriving here, I wrote my first book called “Memoirs of a GayShe”. It is a compilation of my life stories telling the reader that no matter who we are, what we believe, or who we love, we are all human. You can find my book on amazon.com or barnesandnobles.com.
My life long career has been in the beauty business working as a stylist for the last 19 years. Although this career has been good to me, I’m ready to spend more of my time helping FriendMovement achieve its goals. I am delighted to be a part of the team. Even more excited to be the Blog Editor.
