The SCOTUS Marriage Decision 5 Years Later

I can’t believe it’s actually been 5 years. And yet at the time it felt as though it would take forever for marriage to become legal on a federal level. 

Five years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution guaranteed a right to same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Friday, the nation remember the historic decision.

It goes into a lot more detail about same sex marriage in general, with Tweets, photos, and quotes. You can read it all, here. 

Julius’ Is New York’s Oldest Gay Bar

I didn’t know about this. I know exactly where this is. I just didn’t know it was the oldest gay bar. 

At the corner of Waverly Place and West 10th Street, Julius’ is the oldest gay bar in New York City. 

Here’s a link to the rest. They go into detail about “slip-ins.” It’s a nice history piece about gay culture, which you don’t see often. 

The Straight Pride Parade: This is one night he’ll never forget! by [Ryan  Field]


“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.
