Gay Baseball Player Matt Barker; Andy Cohen and Glory Holes; Ryan Field Books

Gay Baseball Player Matt Barker

This is a really fascinating story about a gay baseball player named Matt Barker and how he overcame issues like addiction and coming to terms with being gay. It’s very uplifting.

“I was sick of the way I was living,” he explained. “I said, ‘Knock that shit off, Matt.’ I asked my sister and her husband for help, and they said, ‘absolutely.’ As soon as I woke up from there, I was feeling alive again, and thought, ‘Let’s go after some goals here.”

Here’s more. There’s also a photo of him. He’s hot. 

Andy Cohen and Glory Holes

I’ve been reading a lot about this lately, and frankly I never thought I would. 

“If you haven’t heard, the Canadian government is echoing the New York City Department of Health’s recommendation that horny citizens use glory holes as a way to limit face-to-face contact and swapping saliva during sex,” Cohen explained.

You can read it all, here. There’s a video, too, where Cohen talks in-depth about Glory Holes. 



“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.
