Celebrating the end-of-year holidays doesn't always mean sleighs, snow, and snuggling to ward off the cold. How about making merry when it's just as warm (or hot) outside as inside romantic hearts? Twinkle lights in palm trees, unity cups on the sideboard, bonfires in the backyard, eggnog by the pool, and no chimneys to be found... just the warmest wishes of the holidays bringing lovers together around the world.

A huge part of the world celebrates end-of-the-year holidays that aren't anything like Bing Crosby's "White Christmas." In the southern hemisphere, it's not even winter!

Suite de Big Love

Truman Reid est le terminale le plus fier et le plus ouvertement gay du lycée de Summitville. Il a hâte de pouvoir s’éloigner de sa cruelle et intransigeante petite ville natale sur Ohio River, où il a supporté plus que sa part d’intimidation. Il est impatient d’aller de l’avant vers des lumières brillantes et une grande ville. Peut-être sera-t-il la première star gender-fluid à remporter un Oscar. Pourtant, le premier jour de reprise des cours tout change, lorsque ses yeux se posent sur le plus bel adonis qu’il ait vu de toute sa vie.

Grand, les cheveux noirs et les yeux bleus les plus étonnants qui soient, Mike Stewart est nouveau en ville. Il est calme, viril et a l’air sexy d’une âme en peine. C’est presque un coup de foudre pour Truman. Il pense que cet amour pourrait s’approfondir quand il découvre que Mike fait partie de l’équipe technique de la pièce de théâtre Harvey, celle que les terminales joueront sous la direction de Truman. Mais Mike est-il seulement gay ? Et comment les choses vont-elles se passer, alors que la mère de Truman tombe amoureuse du père de Mike ?

De plus, toujours hors-norme, Truman fait un choix audacieux et controversé pour la pièce, qui révolte toute la ville.

Découvrez comment tout se déroule sur une mise en scène d’amour, de rire, de larmes, et qui prend la défense d’un soi essentiel…

He can't wait to take his fierce, uncompromising self away from his small Ohio River hometown, where he’s suffered more than his share of bullying. He’s looking forward to bright lights and a big city. Maybe he’ll be the first gender-fluid star to ever win an Academy Award. But all that changes on the first day of school when he locks eyes with the most gorgeous hunk he’s ever seen.

Mike Stewart, big, dark-haired, and with the most amazing blue eyes, is new to town. He's quiet, manly, and has the sexy air of a lost soul. It’s almost love at first sight for Truman. He thinks that love could deepen when Mike becomes part of the stage crew for Harvey, the senior class play Truman's directing. But is Mike even gay? And how will it work when Truman's mother is falling for Mike’s dad?

Plus Truman, never the norm, makes a daring and controversial choice for the production that has the whole town up in arms.

See how it all plays out on a stage of love, laughter, tears, and sticking up for one’s essential self….

Fortsetzung zu Die Liebe und der Mut zum Leben

Truman Reid ist Schüler der Abschlussklasse an der Summitville Highschool. Und er ist ‚out & proud‘ aus Überzeugung, offen, eigenwillig und kompromisslos. Dafür wurde er an seiner Schule jahrelang gehänselt und schikaniert. Kein Wunder also, dass er es kaum abwarten kann, seine kleine Heimatstadt am Ohio River endgültig hinter sich zu lassen. Er freut sich schon auf die strahlenden Lichter der Großstadt. Vielleicht kann er ja der erste Star werden, der gender-fluid ist und einen Oscar gewinnt. Doch dann sieht er am ersten Schultag in die Augen des wunderbarsten jungen Mannes, den er jemals gesehen hat.

Mike Stewart – groß, dunkelhaarig und mit den schönsten blauen Augen der Welt – ist neu in der Stadt. Er ist still, männlich und hat die sexy Ausstrahlung einer verlorenen Seele. Für Truman ist es wie Liebe auf den ersten Blick. Eine Liebe, die nur noch tiefer werden kann, als die beiden bei der Schulaufführung von Harvey zusammenarbeiten – Mike hinter der Bühne und Truman als Regisseur. Aber ist Mike überhaupt schwul? Und wie sollen sie damit umgehen, dass sich Trumans Mom ausgerechnet in Mikes Dad verliebt?

Und als wären das nicht schon genug Probleme, entschließt sich der unkonventionelle Truman auch noch, mit seiner kontroversen und mutigen Inszenierung von Harvey einen Skandal auszulösen, der die ganze Stadt in Aufregung versetzt.

Ein Stück, das auf der Bühne des Lebens spielt – auf der Bühne von Liebe, Lachen, Weinen und dem Mut, zu sich selbst zu stehen. Wie wird es enden?

Then he and Eric Brown become roommates, and everything changes. Eric believes in Will and his talent. He’s also gorgeous and playful and fast becoming Will’s best friend.

Perspectives, tome 4

À l’approche de son quarante-cinquième anniversaire, Lil Lampert éprouve une terrible anxiété de vieillir. Pour l’aider à retrouver goût à la vie, son partenaire, Grier Dilorio, lui propose un voyage en amoureux en Italie. Cette absence tombe plutôt mal, car leur fils, Luca vient d’entrer à l’école secondaire. Il est confié à ses oncles d’adoption, Clark Stevens, des Chicago Bears, et Jody Williams. 

Grandir entre deux couples gays a donné à Luca une perspective de la vie assez unique, sans pour autant lui permettre de répondre aux questions qu’il se pose concernant son orientation sexuelle. Après plusieurs années d’un béguin secret pour son meilleur ami, Chip Davidson, voilà que Luca s’intéresse à sa jumelle, la rousse Chyna. Alors qu’il se croyait gay, peut-être est-il bisexuel finalement. 

Chyna est né intersexué, c’est-à-dire avec un rare syndrome génétique d’ambiguïté de genre. Biologiquement, c’est un garçon, mais sa mère, troublée par une crise de dépression post-partum, l’a déclaré à la naissance en tant que fille et l’élève depuis lors dans le mensonge. La puberté arrivant, Chyna a de plus en plus de mal à dissimuler son secret, d’autant plus que sa forte attirance pour Luca lui déclenche d’étranges réactions.

Luca saura-t-il, malgré sa jeunesse, accepter une vérité troublante et aider Chyna à découvrir sa véritable identité, ou bien va-t-il renoncer au premier écueil et réduire à néant le rêve de bonheur d’un adolescent à la dérive ?
