History professor Ned Brummel is living happily with his partner of 12 years in small-town Maine when he receives a phone call from his estranged friend - Jack - telling him that another friend - Andy - is very ill and possibly near death. As Ned boards a plane to Chicago on his way to his friend´s bedside, he embarks on another journey into memory, examining the major events and small moments that have shaped his world and his relationships with these two very different, very important men.Growing up together through the restrictive 1950s and confusing ´60s, Jackson ´´Jack´´ Grace and Ned Brummel take solace in their love for each other. But once they arrive at college in 1969 and meet handsome farm boy Andy Kowalski, everything changes. Despite Andy´s apparent heterosexuality, both Jack and Ned fall hard for him, straining their close friendship. Soon, the three men will become involved in a series of intense liaisons and bitter betrayals, coming together and flying apart, as they alternately hurt, love, shape, and heal one another over the course of years. From the heady, drug- and sex-fueled days of San Francisco in the wild 70s to the haunting spectre of AIDS in the 80s and the righteous activism of the 90s, their relationship transforms and grows, reflecting the changes going on around them. Now, together again in the most crucial and intimate of settings, Ned, Jack, and Andy have another chance to confront the damage of the past and embrace the bonds of friendship and love that have stood the test of time. 1.

Gay cowboy passions flame bright and bold on the Golden Circle Ranch, where the only boundaries are those you make. When two city boy best friends decided to spend some time between college terms out a West on a ranch, it turned out Dillon had an uncle, who had invested some money in a ranch on Colorado, New Mexico border. They were pleasantly surprised by how good looking all the cowboys were in the pictures his uncle sent. Once they arrived at the ranch as interns/summer whelps they found they were not disappointed the ten men who worked the Golden Circle ranch were all easy on the eyes. And there was a very good reason for it: the owner, Tex Masterson was a very selective man, in business and in pleasure, and if he could combine the two, all the better. Dillon´s uncle Matt was one of Tex´s friends and silent partners, he thought his handsome young nephew and his cute friend would get just the training they wanted at Tex´s place. 1.

It¿s hard enough coming out, but playing basketball for a nationally ranked school and trying to figure out your sexual identity in the closeted and paranoid world of big-time college sports - that¿s a challenge. Kate Fagan¿s love for basketball and for her religious teammates at the University of Colorado was tested by the gut-wrenching realization that she could no longer ignore the feelings of otherness inside her. In trying to blend in, Kate had created a hilariously incongruous world for herself in Boulder. Her best friends were part of Colorado¿s Fellowship of Christian Athletes, where they ran weekly Bible studies and attended an Evangelical Free Church. For nearly a year, Kate joined them and learned all she could about Christianity - even holding their hands as they prayed for others ´´living a sinful lifestyle´´. Each time the issue of homosexuality arose, she felt as if a neon sign appeared over her head, with a giant arrow pointed downward. During these prayer sessions, she would often keep her eyes open, looking around the circle at the closed eyelids of her friends, listening to the earnestness of their words. Kate didn¿t have a vocabulary for discussing who she really was and what she felt when she was younger; all she knew was that she had a secret. In The Reappearing Act, she brings the listener along for the ride as she slowly accepts her new reality and takes the first steps toward embracing her true self. 1. Language: English.
