Pete Buttigieg Didn’t Plan To Be the Gay Candidate

Buttigieg came in second yesterday in New Hampshire and is moving forward to the next step in his campaign. So I think these articles are interesting in a general sense because they give more personal details about candidates. 

The fact that Buttigieg has been the first openly gay candidate running for President in the US to ever get this far is a big deal. And even though there’s more to Buttigieg than being gay, it’s a fact that can’t be totally ignored. This is history in the making and in this context it’s not even about opinions or politics. It’s a fact.  

“I didn’t set out to be the gay president, but certainly seeing what this means is really meaningful and really powerful.”

Complaints About Offensive Hot Gay TV Kiss

This happened in the UK. There’s something called ‘fortnightly report’ that has a complaint service where disgruntled TV viewers can comment with their complaints. According to this article, people can complain about anything from infant care to same sex kissing. And, of course, whenever people can complain they will complain. 

And 111 people, astonishingly, said it was “offensive to show scenes of same-sex couples kissing” on Casualty.

Here’s a link to read the rest. There’s a video and more back story about same sex kissing on UK TV. There are also quite a few comments from readers. 

What readers said…
“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

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.
