NJ Councilwoman Apologizes For Vicious Gay Slurs

I posted about this last week, and it was pretty bad. A councilwoman in NJ went after a gay mayor with a rant so awful it made everyone cringe. And now, she’s apologizing. 

“I apologize. That must be the first thing you hear from me,” Robin Vaughn said in a statement posted on her Facebook and Twitter accounts Tuesday. “I am deeply and specifically sorry for the language that has offended so many.”

Here’s more. She should be forced to resign from her position, immediately. 

Gay Right Wing Blogger Publishes Photo of Andrew Gillum

Everything…every last detail…about this story makes me feel creepy, so I’m not going into any personal commentary. I’m only linking to the facts because it’s news, and it’s a follow up to a story I linked to earlier this year about Andrew Gillum. 

A week after Florida politician Andrew Gillum was found at the site of a potential meth overdose, a website run by a gay right-wing blogger has published an alleged nude photo from the incident.

You can read all about this one, here. For those who don’t know, Gillum is a prominent Democrat in Florida. He’s married to a woman and he has children. He’s also been linked to an incident involving a drug overdose and a gay male escort. You can read more about all that, here. 








“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.
