People Are Divided Over the Details of Married LA News Anchor’s Death

If you come from the mind set where you don’t believe there is any shame in being gay, the details of the death of LA news anchor, Chris Burrous, shouldn’t bother you. At least not the gay part. However, there’s a lot more to this story, and some people are outraged over it, and that’s partly because Burrous had a wife and a young daughter.

The man, who said he initially met Burrous on Grindr and had seen him four times previously for sex, tried to perform CPR on Burrous before paramedics arrived. 

Here’s the link. There are more details, and there are quite a few comments at the end.

I just think it’s a very sad story altogether, without judgment. A young girl lost her dad. May he RIP.


UK TV Star Ryan Sampson Comes Out

Here’s something you don’t see often. A UK TV star, Ryan Sampson, came out because people were trying to get him to engage in homophobic ‘banter.’ In fact, there’s nothing better than telling the truth, and knowing you can tell the truth. This is why it’s always so much better to keep it real, especially nowadays.

“So. I was on Instagram and I looked at my direct messages and it turned out someone was trying to rope me in to some (pretty creaky) homophobic banter. Huh! So, for clarity, here’s a pic of me and the boyf. Just to, y’know… straighten that one out. As it were.”

You can check this out, here. There are some great pics, too.

LGBT Discrimination Is Expensive

Apparently, the homophobia and discrimination against LGBT people in Kenya is hurting the economy.

Open for Business is an organization which gathers companies from across the globe advocating the idea that inclusion and diversity benefit the economy.

Here’s a link for this one. There are 3 major factors.


Amazon Reader Review:

“This is GREAT story!! It’s wonderful in its exploration of sexuality and masculinity. The story is well done and beautifully done. The story flows beautifully and the characters are wonderfully written.”

Kendle's Fire by [Field, Ryan] 


Even though Kendle is an openly gay ex-Marine, he’s been questioning his masculinity all of his life. He’s always been what people expect a man to be, in spite of the fact that he’s never been completely comfortable living up to these expectations.

He also has a few secrets. The kind of secrets a man can only talk about with the most intimate people in his life. One of those people is his best friend and part time lover, Dale. And their relationship is not without a few unusual quirks and ironies either, especially when it comes to the way Kendle explains his relationship with Dale to his own parents. 

After a string of bad career decisions and awkward mistakes, it’s not until Kendle meets a young guy named Walter that his life begins to come together. It’s a journey filled with as much joy as heartbreak, with a few bittersweet twists in between. As Kendle opens himself up to new possibilities, he finds himself in the midst of life altering changes that leave him devastated. And there’s a point where he’s not sure he can get through any of it.
