Here's a link to a piece written by a guy from Cornell University using the name Luke Warm. It's interesting because it goes into detail about what it's like to be a gay man in college nowadays. And it's from a first hand POV.
I really love this piece because it mentions how different things are for gay men in college as compared to the straight world. And he's right. I've experienced this myself.
If I do something wrong, or make things awkward, I’m not severing my acquaintance with that one person. I might be cutting myself off from the whole network of their gay friends.
You can read the entire piece, here. It's not too long, it's well written, and the message is spot on. You won't read things like this in a novel that wasn't written by a gay author.
Coronavirus and Gay Sex
This article is about the Coronavirus and sex and dating in general, but I think everything here could also be applied to gay sex. It tackles topics related to what you should and shouldn't do with regard to sex and Corona. I've been wondering about all this lately, and I can't be the only one.
I now know what to do if I feel sick or what kind of hand sanitizer to use, but am at a loss about whether I should still be going on dates or going to bars and being social. And that’s where I’m coming from.
Here's a link to the rest. It gets very hetero in certain places, but I still think it can be applied to gay men...or anyone who falls under the LGBTQ+ umbrella.

What readers said about Kendle's Fire.
While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don't find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don't think it could have been done better.
