Gay Sex Club Closed Down For Not Social Distancing
So far, since the first week in March, Tony and I have followed all the rules for lockdown, self-quarantine, and social distancing. We’re wearing masks in public, and we’re really not going anywhere or having anyone over to our home. And our families and friends are doing the same things. We haven’t even ordered take out food because we don’t trust it.
I’m not saying we deserve a medal for this, however, we actually had the mild version of Coronavirus in March and we’re still following all the rules. And we will continue.
Apparently, though, some people want to return to normal sooner rather than later, and they are paying the price.
A gay sex club in Lansing, Michigan, has been shut by police, after being accused of violating rules on social distancing.
Here’s a link to the rest. Even though so many events have been canceled for the year by now, many people seem to be returning to normal at the beaches and boardwalks around the country. And I guess time is going to tell if that was a mistake or not.
An Openly Gay Man Who Works In A Church
Even though I want to slam that new gay character in Pixar’s Out, I can’t do that. The entire concept is trite. Yes, for those of us who have been out and openly gay for a log time, Out is about as inspiring as beets. But I can’t slam Out and it’s not a bad thing at all. Sometimes we tend to forget that not everyone is “out” and not everyone has been able to be proud and openly gay. There are millions of us who are NOT out. And that’s what this next inspiring story is about.
This was written by a gay man who works in a Church in Texas.
I no longer hide my vocation with vagueness, telling half-lies to potential matches and, if I am honest, to myself. I am open, having come out of my gay-Christian closet. I seek out those who openly express their faith, in hopes that we will have one more thing in common, that what might be the most important aspects of our lives might complement each other.

“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.”
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.
