Trans Men Strip to Their Underwear; Gay Men Are Outed In Horrible Morocco; Ryan Field Books

Trans Men Strip to Their Underwear

We rarely ever see stories about trans men, so whenever I do see one I try to link to it. It just amazes me sometimes that so many people never even consider the fact that there are…and always have been…trans men.

But I do think that’s changing for trans men. There’s a trend called #DontRushChallenge on Insta and TikTok that’s prompted a video of trans men.

The video was put together by Instagram user Lucas Elliot (@cooltransluke). He said he and seven other trans men who participated in a recent fashion show for an underwear brand decided to create their contribution to the genre.

You can check it out, here. You can watch the video there, too. It’s really good. These guys are hot.

Gay Men Are Outed In Horrible Morocco

Last Week I posted about how horrible Morocco is on gay rights. It’s NOT a wonderful place for gay people. It’s one of those countries where LGBTQ people live in constant fear. And here’s another reason why.

At least 50 to 100 gay men were outed in Morocco over the past two weeks, rights activists say, after the men were identified on location-based meeting apps while sheltering at home amid a coronavirus lockdown.

Here’s a link for the rest. No one from Morocco has commented yet.


And there is more to this story. All this appears to have been started by a trans influencer who decided to out gay men. You can read that in full, here.  The sadness with this entire story is astounding. 

Gay men in Morocco have been living in terror for the past fortnight, after beauty influencer Naofal Moussa, also known as Sofia Talouni, instructed her hundreds of thousands of followers to use gay dating apps to identify them.

“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.
