Just Because You Have a Gay Son Doesn’t Mean You Are Gay, Moms, and ‘Fire Island’ trailer: ‘Pride and Prejudice’ goes gay big time

The other day some snarky, pushy straight woman who’s writing m/m romance told me this, My gay son says this is America people should write what the muse compels.” 


Her gay son. She thinks because she has a gay son she knows more than me. I’ve only been published by all the gay presses in the US since the mid-90s. I’ve only been published by the gay European presses since the early 2000s. I’ve only written over 150 gay novels and so many short stories I’ve lost count. And when you throw in the gay magazine articles I’ve done, it’s still not complete. I’ve worked hard. 

And yet this woman’s gay son who’s done nothing with his life tells this woman that cultural appropriation is okay. This woman’s gay son believes it’s okay to steal another culture. His own culture. My mom never would have said anything that stupid, and my mom had two gay sons, a gay grandson, and a gay granddaughter. 

You really can’t argue with that. There’s no hope for those people. You just cancel them and move on. I have no patience for them anymore. There’s no point in even discussing it. 

With that said, here’s a huge piece of gay culture I’ll bet this woman doesn’t know about. Hulu is releasing the first trailer for a new queer rom-com titled, “Fire Island.” 

A modern take on the classic Jane Austen novel “Pride and Prejudice,” “Fire Island” focuses on two gay best friends, Noah (Booster) and Howie (Yang), who take a trip to the Pines, a hamlet on New York’s Fire Island that’s a hotspot for queer culture. 

Here’s more. It’s directed by openly gay Andrew Ahn and it appears to be an entirely gay project. I find it amusing because I did something similar for a romance publisher. But mine isn’t set in Fire Island. I received several 5-star stellar reviews from readers and a few one-star reviews. I’ve come to learn that the one-star reviews are usually by people who hold grudges against me…or from straight women who read m/m romance but only want the narrative to be written through the eyes of another straight woman. I’m not alone. I know other gay male authors who’ve experienced similar situations.
