An excerpt from The Lavander Ledger, a manuscript in progress by John Leavitt about murder, gossip, and scandal in the gay underworld of 1940s Hollywood.
I'm making a serial game that's half visual novel, half mech brawler, about gay disasters beating up neonazis in an alternate universe version of the American Southwest! Here are the first two episodes.
Everyday Gay: A Kissing Book is a romance novel in ebook form. It's pay-what-you-like, with all proceeds going to Trans LifeLine, a crisis hotline for trans people in the US and Canada. It is hilarious, heartwarming, sexy, and, for some, educational. [more inside]
An autobiographic comic for The Nib about how early exposure to the 90s X-Men cartoon and subsequent movie gave a confused gay teenager a metaphor to deal with it.

I am a Quaker, and the Quaker magazine Friends Journal asked me to review a book on sex ed by a Quaker teacher, Al Vernacchio's For Goodness Sex. As a radical sex-positive poly person whose nuclear family has a 50/50 trans/cis split, I found Vernacchio's mildly progressive approach inadequate, and said so. Plainly, in keeping with Quaker tradition.
Hi, folks! I am Dale Lazarov and I write and edit gay erotic comics drawn by distinctive and evocative illustrators like Steve MacIsaac, Drub and Chas Hunter, among others. Our smart, wholesome gay comics smut is full of man-on-man carnality and sweetness. They don't have dialogue or captions so they don't require translation; just your horniness! ;-D As you may know, I have published four hardcovers of gay erotic comics published and distributed internationally by Bruno Gmünder Verlag. Now we're selling both original-to-digital and digital-reprint homoerotic comics in PDF format directly to readers online using Selz, an Australian payment processor that's committed to distributing our art online for purchase and download. As you can imagine, direct digital sales to readers through the internet allows us to circumvent censorious apps and unadventurous bookstores. Also, we both keep more money from your purchase and drastically lower the price of the comics to prices competitive with mainstream comics. So go buy some now! Purchase and download at http://dalelazarov.selz.com/ ; NSFW page samples are available at http://www.dalelazarov.com/ [more inside]

My Web site has a companion page introducing the guests and featuring additional content not heard in the broadcast version. [more inside]
Lez.org was launched this week in the aftermath of revelations surrounding Bill Graber/Paula Brooks of LezGetReal to address the burning question: Are there any real lesbian bloggers?? [more inside]
I spent seven months this year reading every article published since the ’90s on lesbian and gay incomes and earnings. Shocker! Claims by gay marketers to the contrary, gay males earn less on average than straight males, while lesbians on average earn more. This project summarizes the research in plain language in one convenient location. (Especially valuable for journalists, who love to reiterate the claims of gay marketers without fact-checking them.)
KADM just released a new short video by Jason Maran. It could be the strangest love story every told. It might be the most profound tale of sibling rivalry since Cain and Abel. It certainly is NSFW. [more inside]
