One of Two Gay Men to First Marry In Illinois

Here’s a sad story about the second same sex couple to marry in Illinois. But it’s also very endearing.

Mr. Ilio and Ron Dorfman got married in December 2013 in a ceremony that was moved up because of concerns about the health of Dorfman, who wasn’t expected to live long enough to see same-sex marriage become legal in Illinois in June 2014. Dorfman died about two months after exchanging vows with Mr. Ilio.

Here’s more.  There are photos and back story about their relationship, which lasted for more than 20 years. 

I love these stories because these are about the real gay men, not what Hollywood or some non-gay writer imagined gay men to be. 

May he RIP. 

More About Ellen Degeneres

Here’s more info about what’s happening with Ellen, and it’s still not good. Allegedly, they already have someone in mind to replace her. 

A source told US that Ellen, “is pissed that people have come forward to share these negative stories about her and feels betrayed,” and that she could be looking for a way out of the show entirely.

You can read more, here. I’m remaining objective with 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.”

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.
