    So there are actually two movies I could watch if I am sick and bedridden as a child Peter Pan dedicated to the sick children of post WWII London, as I recollect as an adult Brokeback Mountain I was not an instant fan of the film until I saw it on DVD It is the ultimate Lifetime movie the perennial dramathon we ve come to expect from love stories Gay Brokeback, not Peter Pan.Anyway, I also don t really regard the short story by Annie Proulx all that So, then, which is the definiti So there are actually two movies I could watch if I am sick and bedridden as a child Peter Pan dedicated to the sick children of post WWII London, as I recollect as an adult Brokeback Mountain I was not an instant fan of the film until I saw it on DVD It is the ultimate Lifetime movie the perennial dramathon we ve come to expect from love stories Gay Brokeback, not Peter Pan.Anyway, I also don t really regard the short story by Annie Proulx all that So, then, which is the definitive gay love story of all time NOT the Front Runner, that s fo show.It is melodrama supreme the sentimentality like molasses, oozing its way into a reader whose intrigue is dimmed as the conclusion becomes all too apparent It s sad, but not intimately sad It s hot, but not ultimately hot.For a fairly better delving into modern gay lit, go with Ben Saenz s Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe And if you want the ultimate experience in CLASSY gay stuff, Alan Hollinghurst is your man Or Isherwood Heck, even Armistead Maupin has his moments with the muse.Not this one, though Sorry

    This is a classic bittersweet m m romance, written back when that was a farrare and risky thing It is a wonderful book, and has lost nothing in the decades since it was written The 1970 s setting is a vivid backdrop, the main characters are wonderful and complex, and the ending still makes me cry after many readings As we browse through the candy store of contemporary m m romances, this is one to read and savor, and to remind us of the things that change, and the things that remain the This is a classic bittersweet m m romance, written back when that was a farrare and risky thing It is a wonderful book, and has lost nothing in the decades since it was written The 1970 s setting is a vivid backdrop, the main characters are wonderful and complex, and the ending still makes me cry after many readings As we browse through the candy store of contemporary m m romances, this is one to read and savor, and to remind us of the things that change, and the things that remain the same

    Sigh What to say about this book I do understand that it was brave and sensational and groundbreaking I do understand that it changed the lives of many people who read it I do understand that it was a product of its time and that times are different now I do understand how it helped lay the foundation for other queer novels to follow But seriously, it is just so Extraordinarily Bad There, I ve said it.

    I enjoyed reading this book it wasn t the best written story, but it depicted an honest and candid story involving two men in love when the gay liberation movement was just picking up steam It was written by a woman, which I find intriguing, and involves a relationship between a college track coach and one of his students separated in age by a considerable gap.The story has quite a few issues for me mainly the development of a relationship between the two main characters it is clear that I enjoyed reading this book it wasn t the best written story, but it depicted an honest and candid story involving two men in love when the gay liberation movement was just picking up steam It was written by a woman, which I find intriguing, and involves a relationship between a college track coach and one of his students separated in age by a considerable gap.The story has quite a few issues for me mainly the development of a relationship between the two main characters it is clear that Harlan is attracted to Billy with no development Their relationship just suddenly ferments and develops into fruition There are quite a few stereotypes presented in the book and the laydown of Harlan at the very start of their relastionship marriage or its over seemed a bit off.For all the book s faults, I enjoyed reading it and will read it again in the future I felt for Harlan and the many struggles he underwent, could relate, and rooted for him from the beginning The standout quality aside from the characters relationship and development was the idea that liberalism was simply the idea of acceptance in which people are judged on their personality and not on physical appearance while acknowledging people s freedom to make their own choices As Harlan progresses from conservative to liberal , nothing is mentioned about social programs or the other crazy stuff that, in today s society, makes one a liberal A liberal then was simply someone who acknowledged everyone as a human being and didn t discriminate or hold prejudice a concept I can get behind.The book is full of some very memorable and interesting quotes that made me chuckle Macho gays, all of them I should have recognized those leather pants of Billy s I m not one of your mealy mouthed permissive liberals The gay who is a good dancer can turn even the fox trot into an uninhibited celebration of male sexuality i like to think so also A few sentences later All the action was in the hip jerking, the crotch gyrating, the buttock twitching and the thigh weaving sort of spoiler.don t readunless you want a hint How manytimes would I have embraced him that night, how manytimes would I have kissed him, if I had known the name of that stranger lover who was already in Montreal, who had already bought his stadium ticket from a scalper for the 5,000 tomorrow.That implacable lover who was going to turn Billy s eyes away from me forever

    Rest in Power, Patricia Thank you for the wonderful words. A smarter man than I might have noticed the word Tragic on the back cover of this book That s all I ll say about how it was that I ended up blubbering in the midst of the Atlanta airport last week on my way to New Orleans.This book was phenomenal That it has just had its 20th anniversary makes it all thestunning to me for its ability to hold up over time, as so many books struggle to do Set in the year leading up to the Montr Rest in Power, Patricia Thank you for the wonderful words.

    I was simply gripped by this book I have lived through the horrors of apartheid and know of the horrors of slavery and the slave trade in the United States This book describes the discrimination and brutality suffered by gay people from the 1930s to the 1970s and in many ways it is like apartheid I was simply riveted Quite often I was brought to tears The book describes the life of a gay athlete whose private life with his coach became the focus of attention for politicians, the media and t I was simply gripped by this book I have lived through the horrors of apartheid and know of the horrors of slavery and the slave trade in the United States This book describes the discrimination and brutality suffered by gay people from the 1930s to the 1970s and in many ways it is like apartheid I was simply riveted Quite often I was brought to tears The book describes the life of a gay athlete whose private life with his coach became the focus of attention for politicians, the media and the public all of whom tried every trick to have him dropped from the Olympic team all because of his sexual orientation How he overcame these obstacles through sheer determination and strength of character and the support of his partner is most inspirational.It is one of the best books that I ve read in a long time

    Billy Sive, you are the most perfect character on Earth This classic is a must read BUT you guys need to be in the mood for such an emotional ride In my humble opinion this reads like a story about LGBT rights and not like Billy and Harlan s love story They happen to be the main characters in this tale but it didn t feel like I was reading their love story I felt as if I was being part of a history class where the teacher tells you what the LGBT community had to go through in the 70 s.I had Billy Sive, you are the most perfect character on Earth This classic is a must read BUT you guys need to be in the mood for such an emotional ride In my humble opinion this reads like a story about LGBT rights and not like Billy and Harlan s love story They happen to be the main characters in this tale but it didn t feel like I was reading their love story I felt as if I was being part of a history class where the teacher tells you what the LGBT community had to go through in the 70 s.I had to stop reading often because I needed a break I had think about how real everything felt, about how hard it was for them to stand up for everything they believed in Billy and Harlan are just two names in an endless list of people who were trying to fight for their rights and boy, that was hard The author has an unique way to tell you the story and to make you feel part of it.Gracias, Izen 3

    Wow, things have certainly come a long way since 1974.Now, they actually publish gay novels that are good, instead of schmaltzy claptrap like this.
