One of the things I love about Twitter is that I always feel connected globally. And the hashtag #BellaCiaoDaOgniBalcone is an excellent example. It actually means, Beautiful Hello From Every Balcony, and so many people have been sharing it today for various reasons.
Here's a link to one video where an Italian musician is serenading his neighbors.
But really, it's a hashtag where many in Italy and doing the best they can to get through everything with the Coronavirus, and to celebrate the big national holiday referred to as Liberation Day.

Should You Delete Your Ex's Nudes...and Your Ex
This article goes a lot deeper than just nude photos of an ex. It gets into a lot about relationship dynamics. It's another one of those questions from a Reddit thread where a guy is unsure about his long term boyfriend keeping in touch with ex-lovers.

"A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he'll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who's husband died last year. I enjoyed this story."

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.
