Mr. Fancy-Panties

| No Comments

You have to give credit to coming up with a title that says homosexual without using the word.

He was the dainty darling of the dorm!

Mr. Fancy Panties, about a gay man in a college dorm.

One of the more popular theme in homespun gay male erotica is having sex when at college and living in the dorms. Often being the unwilling dorm bitch used by all the straight guys.

Gay Freedom 1970

Two years after this gay liberation poster came out so did I.

I never experienced the social, political or emotional bondage symbolized by their chains. I’ve been very luck in that.

But I’ve loved those who were damaged by homophobia and try to never forget how recent and even tenuous the freedom of gay men and women is.

Homophobic Laws

| No Comments

Thankfully in America the days when police would raid gay bars - most often when the local district attorney was either running for re-election or hoping for higher office - are gone. I think that finally ended in the 1970s.

But the land of the free is still capable of not letting known homosexuals into the US.

Homophobic American Laws

And gay marriage …

Heterosexual marriages must be pathetic if the tea partying straights think gay weddings can damage it.

Gay Moments in Advertising

Forty years later it would be the despicably middle-of-the-road gay men who would be bitching about female impersonators in advertisements.

This Santa Claus looks anything but jolly.

Why is this blond guy getting an over-the-knee spanking with that paddle. And why is Santa watching?

Undercover promises to give us the story:

A young vice-cop fights to hide his own perverse desires.

Which reminds us that it has often been closeted gay men who have engaged in the nastiest homophobic behavior.

Man's Greatest Tragedy and Fear!

| No Comments

Man Divided:

He had to chose - a half world or a world of woman’s love.

Half world was a not uncommon code phrase for homosexual. The use of woman rather than women surprised me but the reference must be to a specific heterosexual romance failing.

A novel that explores with honesty a man’s greatest tragedy - and fear.

It is I who have divided feelings. Being gay was surely awful tough back then but having never known shame for my sexuality and having accepted my father’s rejection sympathy is very hard for me to actually feel.

Fear. Fear is certainly what is behind so much homophobia.

Man afraid he is a homosexual.

Divided. Is the man is supposed to be bisexual? Then he need not choose anything but enjoy males and females.

The Hustitute

The title suggest the book features the scholarship of male prostitution or the training of rent boys.

Gay hustler novel The Hustitute

It is easy to imagine a movie about a school for male escorts. Preferably a comedy and not a melodrama.
