Nathan Lane Talks About Oprah Trying To Out Him On TV

I don’t think there’s anything on this earth that annoys me more than when someone tries to out an LGBTQ person. It’s a personal and private decision and no one has the right to force anyone out of the closet…or to make them feel any fear or guilt about not coming out. Not even if you believe it’s the best thing for that person. 

With that said, Nathan Lane did an interview recently where he talks about how Oprah tried to out him. At the time, he wasn’t ready to discuss all these personal things in public and he said the way it all happened was terrifying. I don’t think there’s a gay man alive who can’t understand that feeling. 

“She says to me something like, ‘Oh, you’re so good at that girly stuff.’ Or whatever it was. And Robin sensed she might be going toward the sexuality question and he immediately swoops in and diverts the interview to protect me.”

Here’s the rest. There’s a video of the interview with Oprah. The homophobia from Oprah is astounding. And don’t tell me times were different. I would have watched that show back then and cringed. At least Robin Williams politely says something brilliant. That man truly was a treasure. 

What A Gay Candidate Is Supposed To Look Like

This article bothers me because I believe that anyone who falls under the LGBTQ+ umbrella is marginalized. We all face discrimination in one form or another, and I don’t think it’s fair (or wise) to set rules for being gay or queer. 

With that said, I don’t think it’s a bad article either. It might even be excellent. It hits on some very real obstacles we’re facing within the LGBTQ+ community. 

For Ivins, Buttigieg was gay, but he was not queer. This might seem like semantics to older, and straight, voters, but for some millennials it matters.

Here’s the link. I just want to see an LGBTQ person running for President. Frankly, I don’t care how they identify as long as they’re LGBTQ+. I like to keep it simple sometimes, and focused. 

What readers are saying about “Pretty Man”

“It is sexy, naughty and raunchy but romantic and just fun to read. Another great addition to any bookshelf.”

What readers said about Kendle’s Fire. 

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.

Kendle's Fire by Ryan Field

Written by Lambda-Award winning author Ryan Field, A Starr Is Born is a queer retelling of an old rags to riches trope that’s been reinterpreted many times, but this time it’s totally different with gay main characters, a gay love story, and a gay male point of view. It’s partly a light-hearted parody and partly sarcasm. It’s also highly erotic and charged with authentic, emotional gay male romance.

From the day they meet for the first time until the day their lives change forever, Harrison Parker and Morton Starr were destined for greatness—and each other. A Starr is Born follows the paths of handsome, badly-behaving rock star Harrison Parker and sexy gender-bending performer Morton Starr, who is just starting his career.

Morton is so madly in love with his husband, Harrison, he’ll do anything to please him, including overlooking all his self-destructive issues. However, as openly gay Morton gains more fame and success in the mainstream with his popular gay love songs and his unique gender-bending image, and Harrison continues to slide downhill, there comes a point where everything has to change. And when that climax finally happens, Morton isn’t certain about anything in his future or his marriage.
