Pride Events Canceled For Coronavirus

Even though Pride season is considered to be June, there are Pride events coming up in the spring and many are now being canceled due to the coronavirus. And when I see things like this happening it also makes me realize we are not going to get back to normal for quite a while.

This article seems to have a full list of cancellations as of right now.

They list everything globally, including the US.

Miami Beach Pride – 05/04/2020 – Postponed with date TBA

Here’s a link to check them all out. We have a Pride event here in New Hope in May and I haven’t heard anything about that yet. 

Gay Bathhouse “Sweatbox” In the UK Closes for Coronavirus

No one took more heat than gay bathhouses did in the early days of the AIDS crisis. And to a certain extent, they are still taking heat so many years later. I never thought it was fair and I’ve never even been to a bathhouse. 

Well, this is interesting because one gay bathhouse in the UK decided to close temporarily because of coronavirus, and they stated that they were doing this for moral reasons, and it certainly can’t be easy.  

“The effects of this closure are devastating on both the business and our staff. But this is a crisis of unparalleled proportions. We will be fighting tooth and nail for both the survival of our business and the welfare of our staff.”

Here’s a link to more. They go into more detail about other closures, and about how the government is handling things like this in the UK. It covers a lot of proverbial ground. 

What readers are saying about “Uncertainty”


“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

“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.
