Who Needs Gay Bars? by Greggor Mattson Pdf

Gay bars have been closing by the hundreds. The story goes that increasing mainstream acceptance of LGBTQ+ people, plus dating apps like Grindr and Tinder, have rendered these spaces obsolete. Beyond that, rampant gentrification in big cities has pushed gay bars out of the neighborhoods they helped make hip. Who Needs Gay Bars? considers these narratives, accepting that the answer for some might be: maybe nobody. And yet... Jarred by the closing of his favorite local watering hole in Cleveland, Ohio, Greggor Mattson embarks on a journey across the country to paint a much more complex picture of the cultural significance of these spaces, inside "big four" gay cities, but also beyond them. No longer the only places for their patrons to socialize openly, Mattson finds in them instead a continuously evolving symbol; a physical place for feeling and challenging the beating pulse of sexual progress. From the historical archives of Seattle's Garden of Allah, to the outpost bars in Texas, Missouri or Florida that serve as community hubs for queer youth—these are places of celebration, where the next drag superstar from Alaska or Oklahoma may be discovered. They are also fraught grounds for confronting the racial and gender politics within and without the LGBTQ+ community. The question that frames this story is not asking whether these spaces are needed, but for whom, earnestly exploring the diversity of folks and purposes they serve today. Loosely informed by the Damron Guide, the so-called "Green Book" of gay travel, Mattson logged 10,000 miles on the road to all corners of the United States. His destinations are sometimes thriving, sometimes struggling, but all offering intimate views of the wide range of gay experience in America: POC, white, trans, cis; past, present, and future.

No Surrender by Nora Phoenix Pdf

No matter what he feels for Wander, he'll never surrender to him. I'm in control of my life. That has become Burke's mantra. He lost control somewhere along the way, descending into a downward spiral until he hit rock bottom. Now he's back, sober, and determined to never be in that position again. Ever. That's why he loves being a dominant. He's in charge. He can plan everything into detail. He's in control. Until he runs into Wander, a private security guy who volunteers to become Burke's mentor in the club. Wander questions him, challenges him, pushes and prods and pokes until Burke stands with his back against the wall. But he refuses to surrender, even when Wander evokes feelings in Burke he's never experienced before. Apparently, he's not quite as straight as he thought. Whatever. That still doesn't mean he'll give in...or that he'll kneel. No Surrender is an MM romance featuring a proud, stubborn man who's hurting and an equally bull-headed man who won't stop until he's discovered the truth. It's the first book in the high heat No Regrets series, a spin off from the No Shame series that can be read on its own, and has a suspense sub plot without cliffhangers.
