Presidential Primary Debate Just On LGBT Issues; Calvin Klein’s Ex Boy Toy Nick Gruber Arrested; Kendle’s Fire by Ryan Field

Presidential Primary Debate Just On LGBT Issues

A lot of the details about this are still sketchy, but it looks as though there will be some kind of LGBT forum where the Democratic candidates will appear. The focus will be on LGBT issues.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) will be hosting a presidential forum on October 10, 2019, at UCLA. That is, just before National Coming Out Day.

Here’s the link. I’ll post more as I see it made public. Apparently, the HRC did a forum in 2004, but I don’t remember that. I’m sure it didn’t get much mainstream media attention, and at the time the Internet was hit or miss with anything LGBT related. 

Calvin Klein’s Ex Boy Toy Arrested

I don’t follow this sort of thing regularly, so I didn’t even know Calvin Klein had an ex boy toy named Nick Gruber…who used to be a pornster. 

According to this story, Klein’s ex got into a little trouble last Friday and was arrested for assaulting some guy with a frying pan. It’s sounds awfully messy and violent, too. They guy who was attacked had broken bones in his back and a severed ear. 

You can read the whole mess, here. Gruber is out on bail right now, and there are photos of Gruber at the link. 

A Novel Examining Masculinity

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.
