Larry Kramer Takes On COVID-19; This Guy Has Never Had Gay Sex; Ryan Field Books

Larry Kramer Takes On COVID-19

This is unusual. Larry Kramer is writing a new play that deals with the fact that gay men have experienced 3 plagues. I guess I’m one of them. Even though I don’t remember the height of the AIDS crisis or the politics involved, I obviously grew up being highly aware of AIDS in the 90s.

The 3 plagues are COVID-19, HIV/AIDS, and aging.

“The government has been awful in both cases,” Kramer told the Times. “They were terrible with AIDS and they’re terrible with this thing. One wonders what will become of us.”

Here’s the rest. There are comments. 


This Guy Has Never Had Gay Sex

Here’s a link to one of those advice columns where readers ask questions and someone replies with words of wisdom. In this case the question comes from a gay man who’s never actually had sex, but he believes it’s important to have sex all the time. It’s a conundrum. 

Here’s part of the reply. 

It’s almost impossible to go a day without seeing some kind of sexualised image or video, but that doesn’t mean that you have to jump onboard the cocktrain if you’re not actually ready to.

Here’s a link to more.  They get into making anal sex easier, which I’ll never totally understand. First, anal sex isn’t that difficult. Second, if you find it that difficult maybe should stop. 










“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.
