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.

(2013/Gospel Friend) 27 tracks An abundance of musical talent combined with an undaunted determination helped the Gay Sisters (or Gay Singers) to become one of Chicago’s most in demand gospel groups. Consisting of the three sisters, Evelyn, Mildred and Geraldine, and little brother Donald, the Gay siblings developed a remarkable skill for solo as well as harmony singing. Evelyn and Geraldine also mastered the piano. Recording for Savoy in 1951, their career got a flying start. Their best selling records enabled the group to tour and appear with such major stars as Mahalia Jackson, the Clara Ward Singers, the Davis Sisters and Jessie Dixon. Evelyn also did recording sessions as a pianist with Sam Cooke & the Soul Stirrers. The late 1960s opened new opportunities as the group, now led by brother and Reverend Donald, was offered recording contracts by Chess and Peacock. Although the resulting sessions yielded excellent records, (on the Checker and Song Bird labels) the lack of promotional support led to a halting career. Successful or not, members of the family continued performing in church and making occasional recordings well into the 2000s. This is the first time that the Gay Family’s entire musical heritage has been compiled on one CD.

Tobias Jackson grew up in Coburn, a town where the gay population equaled exactly one: him. Add that to the fact that his dream guy was his best friend´s jerky older brother, Levi Baxter, and it made hooking up virtually impossible. Now home from college for winter break, Toby is a different person. He left Coburn for San Francisco, where he wasn´t the lone gay guy and the only black kid in town. And yeah, he took advantage of what the city had to offer. Apparently Toby isn´t the only one who´s changed. Levi´s not acting like the self-centered guy with all the answers that Toby remembers from growing up. Oh, and Levi´s realized that he´s bisexual, which makes things a lot more interesting. Heading back to college, Toby doesn´t expect to meet up with Levi again, despite him being in med school not far away. A surprise visit from Levi blows that assumption out of the water. As they spend more time together, Toby sees Levi as more than just the fantasy; he´s complicated, unsure, and real. But if Toby can´t get out of the past and find the words he keeps locked inside himself, he´ll lose his chance at Levi for good. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Crisden.

A frank, funny, and inspiring memoir about how stripping helped a college professor discover his true self. I felt that I´d made a transformation as surely as Superman slipping out of a phone booth or Wonder Woman doing a sunburst spin. I was bare-ass in a room of paying strangers: a stripper. After years of wondering what it would be like, I had done it - faced a fear, defied expectation, embraced a taboo self. It was only the beginning.... All I Could Bare is the story of a mild-mannered graduate student who ´´took the road less clothed´´. Seymour embarked on his journey in the 1990s, when Washington, D.C.´s gay club scene was notoriously no-holds-barred, all the while trying to keep his newfound vocation a secret from his parents and maintain a relationship with his boyfriend, Seth. Along the way he met some unforgettable characters - the 50-year-old divorcé who´s obsessed with a 21-year-old dancer, the celebrated drag diva who hailed from a small town in rural Virginia, and the many straight guys who were ´´gay for pay´´. Seymour gives us both the highs (money, adoration, camaraderie) and the lows (an ill-fated attempt at prostitution, a humiliating porn audition). Ultimately coming clean about his secret identity, Seymour breaks through taboos and makes his way from booty-baring stripper to PhD-bearing academic, taking a detour into celebrity journalism and memorably crossing paths with Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Mary J. Blige along the way. Hilarious, insightful, and touching, All I Could Bare proves that sometimes the ´´wrong decision´´ can lead to the right place. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Seymour.
