20 Questions For Gay Couples

This made me smile.

Imagine for a moment that you have a life-changing dream. In this dream, you and your partner are the protagonists in a remake of Charles Dickens’ timeless novella, A Christmas Carol.

I don’t have to imagine it. I actually wrote the book a few years ago. My readers will know it’s a Christmas parody with the title, A Christmas Carl It’s in paperback and e-book on Amazon and other fine places where books are sold. Actually, I did several gay parodies like this with other famous hetero story lines. And I took the slams for it, too (see below).

All kidding aside, I love my readers and this book sold very well for the genre and for me. And I’m thankful for that and thankful to my readers. And I got the chance to do it when I never thought anyone would let me do it. So I’m thankful to my publisher and agent for that, too. 

In any event, here’s more about these 20 questions for gay couples. 

I’m not going to excerpt the article because I don’t see what’s all that significant about it. Speaking from experience, it’s the same things gay people in relationships have been asking each other for years. It’s also the same things straight people ask. I’m not sure I get the point.

Just one thing, though. Don’t ask these questions too soon. They might think you’re too needy and run the other way. Give it some time.

Asbro Demon Was Secretly Gay

It sounds as if this “demon child” who evidently terrorized a community in England is now claiming that he did this because he was secretly gay. Or, at least partly. I’m not sure…again.

‘I knew I was gay but didn’t want to be. I was a criminal and didn’t want to be,’ he told The Sun.

‘Being gay wasn’t something I could share with my brother Ricky, who is currently behind bars, so I kept it to myself.

‘Dad would have hated me if he knew, so at 14 I tried to kill myself because the secret was torture. When you’re a thug on a council estate, being gay isn’t an option. I was living a lie.’

Here’s the rest.

Millions of other gay people and I were in the same position as this guy at one time. We all lived a lie, we all didn’t want to be gay, and we all couldn’t come out for various reasons. We all experienced the same issues in that respect that this guy did. Some worse than others. And we didn’t become criminals. However, there are, indeed, *gay* criminals. I’ve known a few of them myself.

It does sound as if he’s turned his life around, so that’s good. 

There’s a similar article here, but this one has comments. And those comments are all over the place.

Caitlyn Jenner Settles Accident Suit

Jenner rear-ended two cars on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on 7 February when she steered to avoid cars slowing at a traffic light. Kim Howe, 69, was pushed into oncoming traffic and killed.

Investigators determined that Jenner was driving at an unsafe speed but prosecutors did not file a vehicular manslaughter charge against her.

The rest is here. Jenner claims she doesn’t remember anything, but also claims she does, in fact, remember going under the speed limit.


Now, if you’re thinking of writing a gay parody, beware. It might not be received as well as you thought it would be.  Even if the story line…Pygmalion…has been done a million times, you’re going to get criticism (and gaysplaining) like you’ve never had it before. Just trust me on this one 🙂

Jane Litte/DearAuthor Writes NA Romances

I normally wouldn’t post about this because it’s not pop culture or LGBT related…or even related to good looking men. However, I find it interesting to book publishing in general.

Jane Litte who started the DearAuthor reader oriented romance book review site recently posted a letter to her readership announcing that she’s been writing NA romance novels with a pen name for quite some time now. Allegedly, no one knew this…or that winter in Russia is cold. 

In part:

So I went ahead and created a penname, Jen Frederick, and published Undeclared with no expectations about what would happen. And, much to my surprise, it sold well. So I wrote another one. And another. And began to learn about the publishing industry from an entirely different perspective.

You can read the rest here. It’s kind of like discovering Martha Stewart has really been the owner of McDonald’s all these years.  

No further comment.

How Liz Taylor Would Be Shocked Now

Actually, the article I’m linking to claims Liz Taylor would be “horrified” if she were alive today and she saw the number of young gay men with HIV. This comment was made by Taylor’s granddaughter in a recent interview and it’s all posthumous conjecture.

Naomi deLuce Wilding, 40, tells The Telegraph that “a real complacency” regarding HIV/AIDS in the gay community had already set in before her legendary grandmother’s death at the age of 79 in 2011. 

“Even before she died, when my grandmother was pretty ill, she was horrified to see that,” Wilding said. “Sadly I don’t think she had the strength to say what she really felt at that point.” 

You can read the rest here. 

I have nothing but respect for Taylor and for what she did during the time she did it. When no one was speaking up about AIDS, she was right there waving her arms. But I don’t like to slam people with HIV now, because living with HIV is now considered living with a chronic illness, not a death sentence. And I don’t like to attach a shame/blame stigma to anyone with HIV. Everyone has a different circumstance. I would, however, like to see more awareness so that young gay men know exactly what it’s like to live with HIV. It’s not just a matter of taking ARV drugs. And I just don’t see this awareness anywhere. At least not in the mainstream where most people get their information.

Sean Cody Pornster Arrested

Anyone who reads this blog knows I’ve never once slammed anyone in the adult entrainment industry. But even I have to admit that sometimes these adult entertainers leave me wondering.

In this case a guy I’m not familiar with, Jarec Wentworth, was allegedly arrested for felony extortion by the FBI. He allegedly threatened to make a wealthy victim’s sexual “liaisons” public if the victim didn’t pay up.  Jarec got quite a bit of money, until he got greedy.

Brank was put under surveillance after he successfully blackmailed the unnamed wealthy gentleman out of some $500,000 in cash and an Audi R8 valued at $180,000.

But after he (very greedily) demanded another million and a condo, the man went to the FBI for help. They set up a sting at a Los Angeles Starbucks, and on March 4th, arrested Brank. Inside Brank’s car at the time of arrest was a loaded .357 Magnum revolver with additional ammunition.

The rest is here, with a photo. 

This is something I find personally interesting because the next book in The Rainbow Detective series is focused on kidnapping and extortion. This one almost sounds as if it’s part of my plot. Except for one thing: my main character has diphallia…two dicks. I’ll post more about that soon.
