In the mainstream – answers needed from @glaad

I went to see the new Robocop movie yesterday. It had me wondering… why was the main character straight? Why couldn’t he have been gay.

It bothers me, because yes there are gay characters in movies, but they are never the main character, unless the movie is about a gay theme, such as Brokeback Mountain. That was a groundbreaking movie, but why can’t I have a “regular” movie, such as Robocop, or The Never Ending Story with a gay lead character, where the movie IS NOT about the person’s sexuality?

Brian’s Mate by Hollis Shiloh & @dreamspinners

Today’s review is about Brian’s Mate by Hollis Shiloh.

Stars: 2BriansMateLG

From the book jacket:
Brian is the alpha of the least impressive pack of wolves at the whole Moon Ceremony. When a human is discovered uninvited in their midst, he bonds with the man to save his life.

Luke doesn’t know about all this wolf stuff, but he’s starting to develop feelings for the gentle man who rescued him. Both Brian and Luke expect to quietly dissolve the bond later. But feelings intervene, and some bonds are not so easy to cast aside.

Building a life together as alphas will take love and hard work—especially when new wolves keep inviting themselves into their lives.

More #GLBT author web to visit.. @lynn_hagen, @threeflynns, @stormyglenn, @ch_richards2010, @MichaelOffutt

So I’ve decided to go for another must visit author websites, and with February well underway, what a great time!

1. Lynn Hagen

Lynn writes the amazing, out of this world series Brac Pack, and it’s associated books. You cannot read just one, I’ve had to read all of them! With the money I spend on these books I imagine her kids will be able to afford a bachelor’s degree right through their PhD’s, LOL. But seriously, give her a try.
