The statute was amended several times. The Nazis broadened the law in 1935 and increased ยง175 StGB prosecutions by an order of magnitude; thousands […]

October is Gay History Month

Posted by October 18th, 2013 No Comments

Wilde City Press is celebrating Gay History Month with authors offering a series of posts. Here’s mine… I celebrated enthusiastically with the rest of those who love equality when veteran basketball player Jason Collins came out in April of this year.

Late last week I submitted my latest novel, The Companion, to Toby Johnson at Lethe Press. He’d said earlier this year that he wanted to see the full when it was ready, so off it went. I can attend GayRomLit in Atlanta next week with my desk clear (figuratively speaking only!) Jim Frey, whose workshops […]

On Conflict

Hi, folks. Joe Stalwart here. I’m a PI, a well-motivated character who overcomes obstacles in pursuit of a goal. My old buddy Lloyd Meeker asked me to come by and talk about writing conflict because he’s sulking and doesn’t want to deal with it. Nah, that’s not really fair. The truth is he doesn’t mind […]
