“Tiger King” Joe Exotic In Coronavirus Quarantine

In case you haven’t been following this, Netflix has a new documentary series out about an openly gay man named Joe Exotic who’s lived a turbulent life to say the least. He’s now serving prison time after being found guilty for hiring a hit man. This story is not only high camp, it’s big drama. 

Joe Exotic’s 4th husband, Dillon Passage, recently said this:

“We speak like three to five times every day, but since he’s been moved to this new facility, they are putting him on a COVID-19 isolation because of the previous jail he was at, there were cases.”

FDA Relaxes Blood Donation Rules For Gay Men

I almost didn’t post about this because it bothers me so much. I can’t believe we’re still living in a time where gay men are still being discriminated against this way.

The agency reduced its recommended deferral period for male donors who have had sex with another man to three months, down from one year.

3 months? Frankly, I think they owe us all an apology.

“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.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“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.”



Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]


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.
