Tony and I Moved Once Again, 7.1% of Americans Now Identify As LGBTQ, Ryan Field Gay Romance

 Tony and I Moved Once Again

It’s hard to believe that Tony and I have moved 3 times in the last 2 years. We were always so stable and set in our ways. We lived in the house in New Hope for 18 years, we lived in our townhouse in New Hope for 3 years, and we lived in our Town House in Newtown, PA for 7 years. We are not transient people by nature.

And we would have remained at the last condo in Palm Springs called The Diplomat for a much longer time. We liked it, except for the fact that it had a peculiar HOA and it wasn’t exactly pet-friendly. They didn’t say you couldn’t have dogs, but they made life very hard on people who did have dogs. I posted about that before and I’m not getting into it again. Here’s a link to that post. I went into more detail. The main point is that we listed that place for sale in December and sold it a week later. Then we had to scramble to find a new place. 

Thanks to our realtor and a few well-aligned stars, we were lucky enough in this weird real estate market to find a single-family home in Palm Springs, only 3 miles away from The Diplomat. The house has a fantastic backyard where the dogs can run safely and it’s been a huge relief. I like condo living, but when you have dogs and the HOA is not pet friendly you lose so much quality of life. And it was dangerous, too, walking the dogs along busy highway 111. 

I hope this is the last move for a while. Whether you’re moving 3 miles away or cross country, it’s never an easy venture. But it was worth the energy. The house fits our needs and the dogs love their freedom. 


7.1% of Americans Now Identify As LGBTQ

This is big news. According to a recent poll, 7.1% of Americans identify as LGBTQ. This means that it’s doubled over the last ten years. It was only 3.5% in 2012. Why is that? I think it’s because more and more people are coming out and living their authentic lives. This article, though, claims it’s more about generations. 

“The increase in LGBT identification in recent years largely reflects the higher prevalence of such identities among the youngest US adults compared with the older generations they are replacing in the US adult population,” Gallup noted of the poll, which was conducted in 2021 on 12,416 American adults.

Here’s more. It does make sense that younger people are more likely to come out openly. But I still think there are a lot more of us of all ages who still haven’t come out yet. How these people identify in private is not something we can even begin to guess. But I do think the percentage of LGBTQ Americans will grow even higher in the next ten years. I posted once about a guy in his 90s who came out as gay. It’s never too late. 

The article also mentions that 70% of Americans now approve of same-sex marriage. In 1996 it was only 27%.

Reader Reviews: This is the first of its kind not only a gay retelling of Flowers in the Attic but the first of any kind of retelling of any of the V.C. Andrews books. Usually, two fears strike for fans of any book that is going to get a new twist.
