Putin Invades Ukraine, Staten Island's Homophobic St. Patrick's Gay Parade, Ryan Field Books

Putin Invades Ukraine

I may or may not have mentioned that on my maternal side everyone is Ukrainian. My mom was full Ukrainian and her grandparents were all born in what was then referred to as “The Ukraine.” As a small child, I remember the oldest living relatives who had come to the US from the Ukraine. I remember the old stories about Ukrainian culture and traditions. Ukraine is a country with peaceful people and they don’t start wars. So what that filthy Putin is doing right now is unforgiveable and I hope the world steps in to stop him. 

The people living in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev are now fleeing the city. 

An exodus appears to be underway in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv after Russian forces bombarded the country Thursday. Traffic data and videos circulating on social media platforms seem to confirm people are fleeing the city as full-scale invasion fears soar.

Here’s the rest. I’ve also read that protests have erupted all over Moscow in support of Ukraine.

Staten Island’s Homophobic St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Once again, the homophobes who organize the Staten Island St. Patrick’s Day Parade are not including LGBTQ groups this year. Yes, it’s hard to believe in this day and age that this kind of backward straight privilege still exists in the word. 

A few local politicians will be boycotting the event as a result of this homophobia, including NYC mayor, Eric Adams. 

“We are still hopeful that the organizers of the Staten Island St. Patrick’s Day Parade will see the need for inclusion in our celebrations of cultural heritage and allow members of the LGBTQ+ community to participate,” Fabien Levy, a spokesman for Mr. Adams, said on Wednesday. “Until that time, the mayor will not participate in the parade.”

Here’s more. It seems as if we hear the same thing every year about Staten Island.

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.
