Sherlock and Bulldogs for Big Queer “Boy Month”

Available soon from Go Deeper Press (godeeperpress.com)

Available soon from Go Deeper Press

Folks, we’re getting bone-hard for Sherlock and Watson at Boy Month, with cool Yaoi fan art in video, not to mention hot news about Alison Tyler’s Those Boys and Benji Bright’s Boy Stories. Check it.

Also, don’t lose sight of Lana Fox’s (non-erotic) chart-topping self-help book, written by a butch bulldog, Paws Off My Bone: An Assertiveness Guide for Dogs and Their Humans. It steamrollered into the top 10 on Kindle Self-Esteem charts (free), received 3 5-star reviews within the first week of launching, and got some amazing tweet action from the awesome Emerald, and the wonderful August McGlaughlin, among others. (Click on their names to read their amazing sex-positive blogs!). Keep scrolling for more…

Lastly, check out those dogs at BookBoner.com, where we’re sharing the dog rock version of the Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter”, wondering why “How to Poo on a Date” was written for humans and not dogs, and getting sex-positive about poop management. And when we say dig it, we totally mean it in a dog-positive way.

Finally, if you want to solve problems like Hope Solo, who we’re kind of devastated about at the moment, check Angela’s post here.

Darren Young Comes Out on Camera

Pic nabbed with thanks from prowrestling.it

We love it when well-known folks come out, so when WWE superstar Darren Young did just that in an interview with TMZ, in a totally spontaneous way, GDP got out its hanky and dabbed an emotional tear.  The interview is well-worth a watch, and the interviewer totally embraced the moment. Wonderful.

Of course, there are many ways of coming out, and this is just one of them.  For many, I’m sure, there are different phases to “coming out.” For myself, I came out as gay long before I slept with a woman, and that, in itself, was a powerful experience of coming out to myself, of coming out to my body, my soul.

In fact, when I was first enjoying Huddle: Sex with Sporty Queers (Vol 1: Boys Varsity), I was touched to see this in Angela’s introduction:

“Queer” is most definitely the right word to describe the characters in this collection. This is not a gay male anthology—at least that’s not the way it reads to me. In fact, there are few, if any, instances where any of them announce their sexuality. In Huddle, there is fluidity and discovery.There is resistance and denial, and there is dominance and extremely willing submission. There are no admissions, declarations, or late-night confessions. These are stories about boys and men who love and lust. No labels required.

Do these characters come out to themselves in this anthology? Do they need to come out at all? Do you think some of them are first-timers in terms of M/M sex? We’d love to hear your opinions when you’ve read the collection, which, by the way, you can buy here for just 99 cents, or on Amazon or B&N.

And congratulations to Darren Young! Yes, oh yes, oh yes.

Coming on August 5th!

Pictures: Art That Shows Putin Where To Put It

LGBTQ Russia has powerful support right now.  And Art is showing Putin exactly where to put it. (Also, is it an accident that Putin looks so good in make-up? We don’t think so…)

Why We Need to Offer Asylum to LGBTQ Russians Right NOW

Right now, we at GDP are thinking about Nazi Germany. We’re remembering what we know about Hitler and his atrocities. We’re sending love to a country in which people are being harmed, killed, taken away from their parents / children, all because of how they — or their loved ones — love, have sex, feel, identify, contribute to society, touch, embrace, imagine, dream, and send light to the world.

As so many of us already know, this isn’t a fight for sexual freedom alone.  It is a fight about how we love and feel, a fight about what is true to us. Whether or not you are — or know — someone who identifies as LGBTQ, you are being threatened here — we are all being threatened.

Love is being threatened.

Please read this excellent article by Nancy Goldstein.  Goldstein also gives suggestions for how we can help to fight the fight to let people love and express community as themselves.

The Greeks Invented Gayness? Hallelujah!

Angela and I have been returning to my comical roots by watching British comedy vids.  What we didn’t realize was that two of our recent vids would refer to the notion that the Greeks invented gayness.  Snort.  Being gay ourselves, it occurs to us that we have a great deal to thank the Greeks for. 😉

Anyhoo, here’s one of the scenes from the brilliant Irish comedy, Father Ted.  In this one, Father Ted has been mistaken for a racist.  The hilarious scene ends with a portrayal of both racism and homophobia at their most ridiculous!  Side-splitting stuff.

Oh, and let’s give a nod to Ancient Greek gay poet Sappho too, of course, who wrote with such gorgeous longing.  And also the red and black figure vases that are said to depict gay wooing rituals in ancient times.

Gay Stars, Femme Fatales, and One Big Hurricane

“Paper Stars” by Kate Ter Haar (Cedarville, MI)

At the Boston Book Festival this weekend, the Drum, a smashing audio magazine, published a string stories from local writers.  Mine, which is about a teenager who is made homeless when he comes out gay, is available in audio here — scroll down until you find “Stars” by Lana Fox.  (These pieces originally formed part of an audio tour at the festival, so it’s actually fun if you listen to them in order — but you don’t have to).

In other news, our Femme Fatale deadline is this Wednesday.  We’ve been hungrily shortlisting stories already and have many diamonds thus far, but there’s room for a few more gems if we find them.  (All we ask is that you remember our press is an erotic press, so we’re only looking for sexy reads).

And if you’re on the East Coast of America, our thoughts are with you as the storm rages.  In fiction, storms can be wonderful — nights in dark houses with only candlelight, and lovers who screw against walls that rattle while trees crash to the ground outside — but fiction and reality don’t always mesh.  In fiction, high stakes are fantastic.  In life, we often wish they were lowered…

Be safe, be sexy, dear readers.
