Reebok Drops Pride Inspired Sneakers

This has been such a dismal Pride month, anything like this next story is wonderful to read. 

This season’s Reebok pride collection, All Types of Love, is a nod to Baker’s creation but with subtle modern flair and with an expanded sense of diversity.

Here’s where you can read more. 

They also give some nice backstory about the rainbow flag, and Gilbert Baker the man who designed it.  


Gym Owner’s Straight Pride Logo

When I wrote The Straight Pride Parade I did it for a reason. I wanted to show a world where the proverbial tables were turned and LGBTQ people had all the privilege and the straights were all marginalized. I also tried to keep it fair and balanced. I enjoyed writing that story, and I think it’s because I’m always amazed when I see idiots like this guy. 

“I am proud that I’m a straight guy … I [take] no offense if someone is proud that they are gay. Everybody has their right to choose their lifestyle they want to live or whatever it may be and I don’t get offended if someone has gay pride on their window or car or wherever it may be.”

He clearly doesn’t get it, he has no clue as to what straight privilege means, and I get tired of explaining it. I’m just starting to cancel people like this now. It’s not worth the time. 

Here’s the link to 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.”

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.
