The Stanford Victim’s Letter To Brock Allen Turner

I think it’s pretty safe to assume that no one enjoys reading about rape cases in the news.

“Don’t Forget Who the Real Perpetrators of LGBT Erasure Are” By Kurt Niece

More than one of our subscribers recommended I read Don’t Let Me Go by JH Trumble and I’m glad I took the time to give this novel a try. The cover is enticing enough, but I have to admit that I was hesitant to read a love story between two males written by a female. It has nothing to do ... Read More »
