Closeted Gay Grandpa Gets Blackmailed

Everything about this story is sad. From the guy who simply cannot come out of the closet at his advanced age, to the creep who decided to take advantage this guy’s inability to embrace himself as gay. And I don’t mean that in a snide, sarcastic way. I really do feel bad for the older guy.  I also do not believe in outing anyone. I just think it’s so sad that people are still in the closet nowadays.

The case took place in the UK. Kieran George Thurling, who lives in Uffculme, Devon, met his victim via the gay hookup app in September 2018. They met around eight times for sex before Thurling threatened to out him via a message sent in January this year.

A Documentary of Gay Voices

This is about a documentary titled, “Word Is Out.”

“Word Is Out” is widely considered to be the first feature film about gay people by gay people. It is a movie of a mighty complexity built from the simple premise of people talking about their lives.

This is interesting, the part about the film being about gay people by gay people. But I guess it’s true. Even the documentary that I was in…The State of Marriage…was done by straight people. It was about gay marriage and gay people, but it was done by straight people. They were nice straight people. I loved them all and they did a wonderful documentary. But I just realized that now. 

In any event, here’s more. I’ll have to look for this one. 



“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.”

“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.
