12 TV Stars Came Out As Gay This Year

This is good to see. I’ve been irritated about the fact that we’re not getting a Pride month this year at all. Even though we are probably the most marginalized group on the planet right now, we’re being totally ignored. But that’s okay. Wave your ridiculous bibles and do whatever you please. It’s clearly not stopping us, and it never did.

The Z Nation and Man in the High Castle actor came out on Twitter on January 11 moments after coming out on stage. “Been gay this whole time,” he wrote. “Tired of worrying about what people would think of me. Tired of worrying about what it would do to my career.”

Here’s the rest.  With that said, I’m still really bothered by the fact that we lost the entire Pride Month this year.

Ricky Martin on the Dangers of Being Gay and Latino

I’m glad he’s speaking up about this. I wish more people would speak up about things like this. Maybe if we did the world wouldn’t continue to walk all over us. 

“I am a Latino, gay man, married to an Arab man, living in the United States,” Martin said. “In other words, I am a threat to these people wherever you see them.”

I absolutely trust and believe every word he says. Here’s more. 


“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

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.
