Anderson Cooper Announces He’s A First Time Father

Anderson Cooper has just announced that he’s now a father.

“On Monday, I became a father,” he said. “I’ve never actually said that before, out loud, and it still kind of astonishes me. I’m a dad. I have a son, and I want you to meet him.”

I never get tired of reading about stories like this. Hell I never thought I would see stories like this about gay men. 

You can read it all, here. There are photos of the baby that are seriously and totally adorable. 


May 2nd Is World Naked Gardening Day

Every year I post something about World Naked Gardening Day because it’s always so wonderful to see people who embrace their nudity, without hesitation. It’s refreshing. I’ve been to nude beaches and I’ve learned that once you remove all your clothes it feels perfectly natural after the first ten minutes. You don’t even realize you’re naked. 

Get ready for the Annual World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD)! People across the globe are encouraged, on the first Saturday of May, to tend their portion of the world’s garden unclothed as nature intended.


Here’s the link to their web site. 







“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.
