Massachusetts To Recognize Polyamorous Relationships

First, polyamorous relationships are relationships with more than two people. They’re usually long term and serious.

Somerville, MA just passed an ordinance that allows relationships to be defined as “formed by people,” instead of defined as “formed by 2 persons.”

Short story … the ordinance allows for more than 2 people in a domestic partnership.

Here’s the rest. It’s a fascinating concept that I think will continue to gain momentum. And it came about for practical legal reasons during COVID. 

Over the years I’ve known many gay men in polyamorous relationships. I think this will be a game changer. 

Angry Straight Woman In Pennsylvania Screams About HIV

There’s a lot of anger out there these days. And sometimes it gets particularly bad. 

With that said, this woman really went over the proverbial edge. 

One of the protestors responded by telling her, “We love you!” She responded by saying “F*ck off! Keep your HIV over there!”

You can check this out, here. This is one reason why I try never to spend much time in Pennsylvania west of Philadelphia. 


“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.
