my oldest is one of you! she called my mom to tell her before me, which is :/ but it's been pretty much a non issue. maybe it's easier for girls? def easier these days I gather, in particular in a big city that's long had a reputation for being LGBTQ friendly (mostly with reason).

i love Representative Bradford and I've watched this about 30 times now. The woman in blue is worth a close read.

just some random shirtless boy at leather night.

Made out briefly with someone else who was circulating though the bar, serially asking older guys if they loved him. "Sure."

one month passes...

From the NY Times obit of Bob Smith, the pioneering gay comedian who died this month:

In addition to Mr. Zam, Mr. Smith is survived by his mother and his brothers, Gregory and James. Mr. Smith, acting as the sperm donor for a lesbian couple, Elvira Kurt and Chloë Brushwood Rose, was also the biological father of their two children, Madeline and Xander. In “Treehab,” he told that story, with gentle humor, of course.

“Lesbians can afford to be ruthlessly discriminating when picking their sperm donor,” he wrote. “In fact, if all women were as selective as lesbians, we’d have evolved into a race of gods by now.”

Tom Cruisey and Henry Cavill were on Graham Norton, a UK chatshow last night. They are such homos. I'd hire HC to be in my film too if I were TC. He's extremely impressive physically. Such a pretentious bore though.

"...I’d work with the muthafuckin’ devil to bring about gay rights.” Read my cover story about the forgotten militant preacher Rev. Ray Broshears, who started The Lavender Panthers in 1973 to fight homophobes, crooked cops and gay bashers https://t.co/0SKhixcI1c pic.twitter.com/CeS1P2Oh8d

Last night he said to me "I am warming up to the idea of spending the rest of my life with you" and I pretty much have been exploding with joy since then

That would be sweet for me too except I'd hope he adds "...so long as we keep our separate apartments."

can anyone recommend good recent gay fiction that isn't The End of Eddy? I'm tapped out.

Not fiction, but I think you would really enjoy Proxies by Brian Blanchfield, Alfred.

Is that because you've already read The End of Eddy or because it sucks (or both)?

two weeks pass...

cross posting w/ politics thread

People For the American Way, the organization that runs Right Wing Watch, filed suit against the Department of Justice and the Department of Housing and Urban Development today to demand the release of documents concerning reported changes in federal policy toward LGBTQ people.

Right Wing Watch had filed Freedom of Information Act requests with both agencies asking for documents on reported actions removing mentions of LGBTQ people from federal announcements and programs.

These reported actions were being taken quietly and without public announcement, raising the questions of who made the decisions, what the decisions covered, and whether agency staff had been directed to implement certain policies regarding programs affecting LGBTQ people without public knowledge.
