Corporal Alex Indigo, USMC, is a gung ho, professional infantry Marine. In the era of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," he still needs to keep hidden the fact that he is gay if he wants to continue to serve. Trying to keep his private life private, he doesn't date fellow Marines. Combat-deployed to Falluja, Iraq, however, he doesn't have much outlet for his natural wants and desires. When he meets Taylor, a fellow corporal, he feels a strong attraction to the handsome, quiet Marine. It is hard to hide anything in a combat zone, much less a romantic relationship, and he knows he needs to ignore Taylor, but can he ignore his own heart? Note: this book contains adult material and is intended for a mature audience.

Martha Baker was a very average Midwestern girl. She wrote in her journal nearly every day of her life beginning at the age of nine. Her life changed directions many times but she always stayed true to her journal. Some people find it hard to deny their nature. Martha found it impossible. Her inner conflicts and tortured decisions affected her life far more than events happening in the world around her. Author Thomas Isaac Franklin served as both editor of Martha's journals and writer of this chronicle of her early life. All of the most fantastic events and deeply felt emotions in the book came directly from her journals. Her entries were often graphic, uncensored, and raw. They are intended for mature readers. Franklin had to supplement the sometimes-sparse journal entries with research. He interviewed Martha's relatives, friends, and noteworthy characters that appear in her journals. He found it necessary to expand the least descriptive portions of the journals to add imagery, form, and continuity to his writing. As you open Martha's Journals: Book One, you will be privy to her deepest held thoughts and desires. She will tell you secrets she would never verbalize to even her closest friends. This narrative follows Martha's life from birth to womanhood. You will accompany her as she explores her mind, body, and desires like few woman could or would.

Gay and Lesbian Literature Since World War II chronicles the multifaceted explosion of gay and lesbian writing that has taken place in the second half of the twentieth century. Encompassing a wide range of subject matter and a balance of gay and lesbian concerns, it includes work by established scholars as well as young theoreticians and archivists who have initiated new areas of investigation. The contributors'examinations of this rich literary period make it easy to view the half-century from 1948 to 1998 as the Queer Renaissance. Included in Gay and Lesbian Literature Since World War II are critical and social analyses of literary movements, novels, short fiction, periodicals, and poetry as well as a look at the challenges of establishing a repository for lesbian cultural history. Specific chapters in this groundbreaking work trace the development of gay poetry in America after World War II; examine how AIDS is represented in the first four Latino novels to deal with the subject matter; and chronicle the birth of lesbian-feminist publishing in the 1970s--showing how it created a flourishing gay literature in the 1980s and 1990s. Other chapters: outline the history of The Ladder from its initial publication in 1956 as the official vehicle of the Daughters of Bilitis to its final issue as a privately published literary magazine in 1972 examine Baldwin's 1962 novel Another Country and discuss the complicated critical history of this work and its relation to Baldwin's literary reputation--racial, sexual, and political factors are taken into account chart how Other Voices, Other Rooms, by Truman Capote, and The House of Breath, by William Goyen, reveal contradictory genderings of male homosexuality--suggesting an absence of a unified model of mid-twentieth-century male homosexuality argue that the 1976 novel Lover, by Bertha Harris, can be considered an exemplary novel within discussions of both postmodern fiction and lesbian theory. (The author calls for Harris to be added to the group of writers such as Wittig, Anzaldúa, Lorde, and Winterson, who are discussed within the context of a postmodern lesbian narrative.) examine the short fiction of Canadian lesbian novelist Jane Rule in an effort to shed light on lesbian creative practice in the homophobic climate of postwar North America argue for an understanding of Dale Peck's novel Martin and John as an attempt to link two apparently different processes of import to contemporary male subjects through examination of the novel alongside selected passages from Nietzsche and Freud focus on the pragmatic issues of developing and maintaining accessible research venues from which to cultivate the study of racial and cultural diversity in lesbian lives Document the history of the Lesbian Herstory Archives, one of the first lesbian-specific collections in the world, from its birth in the early 1970s to the present.

Yes, It All Really Happened Just Like This. . . Here's the story of Rich Merritt--the good son, teacher's pet, Southern gentleman, model Christian student at Bob Jones University, Marine officer, and the not-so-anonymous poster boy for a New York Times Magazine article on gays in the military--whose complicated sexual past caused an international scandal when The Advocate "outed" him as "The Marine Who Did Gay Porn," putting his life in a tailspin. It's the compelling, poignant story of how a boy who never listened to pop music, never cursed, and didn't have his first drink until he was eighteen exploded into a life of drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, prostitution, and pornography. And above all, it's a triumphant story of self-forgiveness and identity, of a man who refused to allow himself to be defined by the standards of anyone else--gay or straight. Along the way, Rich Merritt writes with humor, compassion, insight and naked truth about: • What it's really like growing up behind the "Fortress of Fundamentalism" and how he ultimately came to despise their views • The harsh realities of military life under the "Don't ask, don't tell" Clinton policy • A real insider's experience of working in the male porn industry--the good, the bad, and the extremely hot • Why he chose not to reveal his porn past to the New York Times journalist • What it felt like to be the most notorious marine in the world and what it took to come through the fire By turns harrowing and heartbreaking, angry and affirming, Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star is that rarest of memoirs--a fascinating slice of life that reads like the most absorbing fiction, but is all true.

We as a people of a proud and historic nation have watched as our economy was fractured badly during the 2001 period through 2009. The lust for big power and wealth has caused some leaders of government, business, and religion to have more ambition to achieve their own personal success than to care about those persons they are responsible in leading and protecting. Our political system has lost the ability or desire to have bi-partisan teamwork to make the quality of life better for our children and grandchildren. My goal is to get us to seek and find solutions to problems and not just whine and gripe among ourselves for self gain. I am a small town boy from Kentucky who was fortunate to get to go to college on a basketball scholarship. My college education may not have been possible without athletics. Three years as a young Marine Corps Officer gave me an opportunity to see life from another vantage point. Forty years as an Executive in the Auto Industry and an opportunity to live in eleven different states and one territory and raise a family of five gave me another good perspective on life. This book has been born from the memories and actual experiences I have enjoyed from relationships and friendships with many interesting personalities from Baseball Great Roberto Clemente to former Governor George Nigh of Oklahoma to many top executives in industry. I have seen the "Good, the Bad" and even the Ugly" of life. Fortunately I have seen so many good and kind people that the bad and the ugly have been overcome.

"Silent Drums: Adapt, Improvise, Overcome!" tells the true 73 yearlong (so far) life struggle of a loving husband who also happens to be a decorated gay Vietnam War combat Marine afflicted with terminal cancer caused by his exposure to "Agent Orange." My good friend Bob LeBlanc's life as told in my non-fiction account, which reads like a novel, personalizes the fight for full LGBT equality as it informs, enlightens and entertains by taking you inside the extreme injustice that all of us in my LGBT community are forced to endure. Bob's personal journey spans the entire length of today's LGBT civil rights movement and directly involves U. S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, first in 1975 as a judge on the 9th circuit court of appeals when Kennedy intervened in Bob's case against the Marine Corps then again in Kennedy's SCOTUS decisions in 2013 and 2015 on marriage equality. "Silent Drums" is not a war story as the book also chronicles the challenges faced by Bob's partner, now husband, Julio, who only recently was granted legal immigration status, a process that is considerably less complicated for heterosexual couples. The final chapter of "Silent Drums" seeks a presidential pardon for Bob's conviction in a case brought by a bigoted commanding officer who was upset with Judge Kennedy's issuance of the above mentioned restraining order. The Judge in this case refused to punish Bob and the Prosecutor offered to sign Bob's reenlistment papers when the bigoted CO refused his signature. I hope you purchase "Silent Drums" but if you don't, please sign this online petition supporting my request for a presidential pardon? https: //www.change.org/p/barack-obama-president-obama-please-pardon-a-decorated-gay-vietnam-war-combat-marine Thanks, Pam
