3 polyamory books (Including one about a werewolf/vampire/vampwolf triad)
3 1950s/1960s lesbian pulp fiction books
2 plain absurd eroticas (One with a vampire viking and another with a pirate queen)
An anthology of fiction by gay men of African descent
2 lesbian histories of the late 20th century
And something titled Cthulurotica that would probably make H.P. Lovecraft SHIT and seems like the intersection of @glumshoe and @thebibliosphere . Actually, come to think of it, I feel like I can blame Mama Joy for like half of these.
As a gay man I can honestly say had it not been for women of all sexual orientations supporting me in my darkest moments, I wouldn’t be here!
They’re part of the reason why I’m alive and kicking-plus they feel I’m hilarious.
Many of them have worked in the HIV field, personally experienced the loss of a friend to the virus, have many gay friends, and care for humanity. Some have been my friend for over a decade and others, several years, but I treasure our friendships.
It’s been so hot in NYC that I developed a heat rash on my face, neck and back. It looked so bad that I had to leave work.
I’ve never had heat rash before, but my doc confirmed it. I was prescribed meds.
Anyways, my fiancé wasn’t about to let my fears about my skin and a rash stop him from being all over me. “You can’t give me your rash, so scoot over!” With air conditioner on blast we fell asleep and I woke up earlier than him but his heavy ass was hard to push off ❤️😂😉
I was part of a panel invited to speak at Hudson County Community College in Jersey City, New Jersey about being Black and Gay/Lesbian.
We discussed the presence of gay and lesbian people during the Harlem Renaissance.
The young man is an openly gay African of Nigerian and Liberian heritage and the young lady is an African American lesbian.
We discussed the commonality people of the African Diaspora who are gay/bi/lesbian/same gender loving/queer experience, as well as unique issues pertaining to Caribbean, African, African American, Afro Latino individuals whose sexual orientation is other than heterosexual, go through.
Because I’m older, I went into detail about how many gay clubs in the 70s and 80s made people of color show 3 forms of ID to gain access to enter, how life was for gay men without access to the internet and social media, and , of course,the devastating effects AIDS has had on the Black LGBT community.
The young man asked me to be his mentor , because although he’s out of the closet, he hasn’t really surrounded himself with gay people because he’s focused on his grades and plans for graduate school. He was amazed I knew about African food like fufu, peanut soup, jollof rice and red palm oil 😂
The young lady graduated from college and works in education.
Did you know the largest collection of MRA proponents is in India? India has the largest MRA group of any country in the world so if anything the MRA movement is primarily middle eastern with white men being the second highest, followed by latino men tied with men of African descent. Yes, gay men are included in MRA movement such as Justicar (A youtube user) and/or JohnTheOther (another youtube user) that have both shown up and protested in live demonstrations including one in a Toronto public park.
Male white-knight feminists protested that peaceful part demonstration talking about the needs of better education for young boys and mental health support to help bring down the overwhelmingly largely male number of suicides, yelling ‘RACIST SEXIST NO GAYS. MRA. GO AWAY’. The irony being one of the main speakers was gay, another African american and two female speakers mixed with 3 male speakers. The movement is pretty diverse.
