I didn't think I would get the links to these books in print so soon. But here are a few. Amazon will have them eventually, but Amazon takes its sweet old time.

Prince and Homophobes
I liked Prince and this is a good article because it talks about Prince's views on certain issues, especially with some of the new revelations coming out about Prince's death that may or may not be true...as of right now. We'll have to wait and see. But I have a feeling I'll be posting more about Prince soon.
In any event, here's a quote from Prince on gay marriage.
Later, Prince seemed ambivalent about the prospect of gay marriage. “So here’s how it is,” he told The New Yorker in 2008, some years after finding religion with Jehovah’s Witnesses. “‘You’ve got the Republicans, and basically they want to live according to this.’ He pointed to a Bible. ‘But there’s the problem of interpretation, and you’ve got some churches, some people, basically doing things and saying it comes from here, but it doesn’t. And then on the opposite end of the spectrum you’ve got blue, you’ve got the Democrats, and they’re, like, “You can do whatever you want.” Gay marriage, whatever. But neither of them is right.’”
You can read the rest here, where they also mention a few other celebrities and homophobia. They mention Matt Damon, but I don't think of him as homophobic. I think of him as clueless, and there's a difference. And you really can't blame someone for not knowing something. I see it all the time. They do something insulting to gays, because they expect all gays to be the same, and they don't even realize what they are doing. Clueless.
Sex Death and Bowling Starring Adrian Grenier
Last night I watched Sex, Death, And Bowling, with Adrian Grenier, on Netflix. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, but I wound up loving it for one simple reason that I can't tell you. And I also think it's interesting to note that it didn't get the best reviews by straight people...from what I've seen so far.
Without giving out spoilers, it turned out to be a film that broke a lot of the stereotypes I see all the time in films, and I found myself surprised during various parts of the film. I didn't expect half of what happened. In fact, I expected the opposite...the typical shit I see all the time coming from a hetero POV. And that's about all I can say because I don't want to ruin it for someone else. And if I go into detail, I will ruin it.
So if you get a chance, check it out. Even if you don't like it as much as I did, there's Adrian Grenier to watch. He's as gorgeous as ever and I thought his performance was spot on. I hope he continues to make films like this...forever.
Here's more about it at Wiki...but they do give out spoilers and I really hope you don't read more and that you watch the film without knowing anything like I did.
In short, I loved it. And this time the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes are dead wrong...at least wrong coming from my gay POV. I think it shows how little straight people know us, and how little they know about what we want to see in a film. Actually, some of the reviews sound a lot like passive aggressive straightsplaining.
Someone should tell them, because you can't really fault clueless.
