The Face of Gay 22 (J.P. Barnaby)

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

RECOVERED

If all goes well, the next Face of Gay post on December 29th will be the last one for 2012 and I have something rather fun, festive and musically inclined planned for it. You see, we’ve attracted some readers who don’t always comment, but who pour over what you write each week. Some of them are names you might recognize and it’s become my mission to see if I can get them involved, one at a time.

All in all, this has truly been a year of meeting people both online and in person. One who I met for the first time many months ago is a fellow author, the indomitable J.P. Barnaby. She’s not only a breath of fresh air, but she makes me laugh and that’s something I appreciate a great deal. And like so many authors in this genre, she either reached out, caressed and touched lives around her or they’ve reached out and goosed her. We authors like that sort of thing…if the person doing it is appropriately gorgeous and well-endowed. But it’s not all about groping. It should be, but it’s not. Sometimes those whose lives we touch and are touched by have very dark beginnings. Welcome to J.P. Barnaby’s Face of Gay.

The Face of Gay 21 (Thom)

Saturday, December 8th, 2012

RECOVERED

I can honestly say I knew Thom before he became a publisher author! Granted, I still haven’t met him in person yet, but we’re working on that. Maybe one year at DragonCon. What I thought I knew about him recently went right out the window when I read his post for this series. It’s one thing to ‘know’ somebody via social media and a few phone calls discussing publishing pointers, but to really dig into the nitty-gritty?

Someone complained two weeks ago that they felt these posts were too sugarcoated and never delved into the ugly side of life. I disagree, but that’s my own humble opinion. I’d also challenge that person to read this week’s post and call this sugarcoated. And with that, welcome to Thom’s Face of Gay.

The Face of Gay 20 (Paul Bright)

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

RECOVERED

Filmmaker Paul Bright first came to my attention a little over a year ago when I visited a TLA booth at the WEHO Book Fair and saw one of his films, Altitude Falling, for sale. The film stuck in my head, but it wasn’t until I saw Paul in person at a booth at OutlantaCon with the film in front of him that I put two and two together. I’m great with film covers or poster art. I’m terrible with names. I’m not so good with math at times either.

So, how does a writer/director/actor (plus someone who wears several other hats) who happens to be gay manage to navigate around the Hollywood system and release independent films? What about the man behind the films? For the answers to those questions, I’m going to let the man himself tell you. Please say hello to Paul Bright and his Face of Gay.
