The erotic e-book The Lusty Adventures Of Theseus is now available from Dreamspinner press, written by Arthur Griffin.

“Handsome Theseus journeys to Athens to claim his birthright as heir to the throne, and along the way he meets the roguish Pirithous, who teaches him all about matters of the heart—and body. When they reach the city, Theseus is shocked to discover that his father, the king, has a tradition of sacrificing young people to the Minotaur, the monster that inhabits the island nation of Crete.

Theseus and Pirithous, along with Iphitrion, a slave boy they befriend, set out to slay the Minotaur. After learning Crete is ruled by a mad tyrant with a fetish for orgies, Theseus puts his new skills to the test, fighting, flirting, and fornicating his way through the ranks, working his way past soldiers, satyrs, and gods alike as he attempts to accomplish his goal and save his city.”

A little birdie told me that “Arthur Griffin” just might be the pen name of my former AE and TBL colleague Tim O’Leary, who longtime readers will remember wrote (among other things) a fabulous advice column for us. Congrats Tim, I mean Arthur!


Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returned last night, and gay superhero Joey was front and center, as part of Daisy’s Secret Warriors team. He equipped himself well, and I like the easy rapport he has with Daisy, but I’d like to see more of his metal-melting powers. But at least he is officially part of the team now. What did you think?

Sadly, it looks like we have officially lost another gay character, as Gavin MacIntosh (Connor) tweeted this after Monday night’s episode of The Fosters.

There’s a lot of conjecture about the backstage drama that occurred that led to the end of “Jonnor,” but the bottom line is that one of the bravest and groundbreaking gay storylines on TV has come to an end. (h/t bystander 9529)

Congrats to Jillian Michaels, who is now engaged to fiance Heidi Rhodes.

It’s time to say goodbye to yet another music legend. This time it’s “the fifth Beatle,” producer George Martin, who has died at the age of 90.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.

This week our 156th ShoutOUT™ is to … David Monahan


David had one of his most memorable roles in 2012, as closeted Republican Congressman Sean Reeves in the mini-series Political Animals, getting hot and heavy with adorable Sebastian Stan.


Over the next few weeks we’ll have a lot of fun looking at 20 Songs Everyone Knows That Didn’t Hit The Top 40! These are all songs that have become a part of pop culture history, but failed on the chart when they were originally released. Songs that, through inclusion in films, TV, or other medium have managed to withstand the test of time.

Note – We’ll also include a couple of songs that were never actually released a singles, but have also become classics.

At #13 is “Oh Yeah” by Yello.


Swiss duo Yello released “Oh Yeah” in 1985, but it wouldn’t chart until two years later, after it had gained enormous exposure in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and The Secret of My Success. Even though it only peaked at #51 in September 1987, its impact on pop culture is still felt, as it’s still used constantly on TV and in films.
