Gay Marriage in the USA

Fucking brilliant!!!

Same-sex marriage supporters wave a rainbow flag in front of the US Supreme Court on March 26, 2013 in Washington, DC. The US Supreme Court on Tuesday takes up the emotionally charged issue of gay marriage as it considers arguments that it should make history and extend equal rights to same-sex couples. Waving US and rainbow flags, hundreds of gay marriage supporters braved the cold to rally outside the court along with a smaller group of opponents, some pushing strollers. Some slept outside in hopes of witnessing the historic hearing. AFP PHOTO/Jewel SamadJEWEL SAMAD/AFP/Getty Images ORG XMIT: 164256121

Recommended books

I am preparing a list of good gay books I have read over the years.  I am beginning to list them under RECOMMENDED.  I have only listed those authors I can remember for now, and make only two annotation (reviews).  But hopefully I will continue to add to it.

Even as it is, it is worth googling the names.  (“as it is it is…” what a weird phrase to write, maybe it needs a comma after the first ‘it is’?)

Story in Wilde Oats Issue 3

WILDE OATS ISSUE 3,  December 2009

I have a story called THE PRINCE’S BRIDE, which is also illustrated by me.

The theme of the issue is GAY MARRIAGE.

My story is based on a fairy tale theme, about a Prince who was expected to marry to carry on the line and produce an heir.  The problem was that the Prince did not want to marry, at least not a woman.

Around the forgotten parts of the city, the dark corners, the alleyways, hidden from the searching torchlight of police and charity workers, are the lost boys, the abandoned ones. May I gather with them in their loneliness, and tell them a fairy tale to warm their nights, a story of a Prince who – like them – never wanted to marry.
