GAY HORROR FICTION: "GAY of the DEAD" by Will Kohler.

LGBT HORROR FICTION: “GAY of the DEAD” by Will Kohler.

Prologue: NYC – July 1982.

The summer of 1982 cast its sweltering spell upon the bustling streets of New York City. The air was thick with the scent of hot asphalt, pulsating with the rhythm of disco beats and the sizzling anticipation of youthful dreams. It was a time when the Big Apple was both a playground and a battleground, where dreams were born and shattered in the same breath.

But beneath the shimmering facade of neon lights and late-night revelry, a sinister force lurked in the shadows. Unbeknownst to the carefree souls basking in the summer sun, a contagion was spreading, altering the course of their lives forever.

It began subtly, a mere whisper in the dark corners of the city. Reports of strange behavior, unexplained disappearances, and eerie sightings circulated among the city’s underground circles. Those who paid attention sensed an impending doom, but the majority dismissed it as urban legends or the ramblings of paranoid minds.

Among the skeptical masses, a group of misfits found themselves inexplicably drawn together by a shared sense of unease. They were an eclectic mix of artists, businessmen, and outcasts, seeking refuge in the gritty yet vibrant underbelly of New York City. Their paths converged at the Ninth Circle a dimly lit former speakeasy, then steakhouse and now a gay bar, tucked away on 10th Street in Greenwich Village.

Within the dimly lit bar, the group sought solace from the sweltering chaos outside. Each harbored their own secrets, their own regrets, but that night, fate united them against a common enemy they could not yet comprehend.

As the night wore on, the restless energy of the city seemed to crescendo, intertwining with the pulsating beats of the music. It was within this nexus of anticipation and uncertainty that the unthinkable occurred.

A young woman stumbled through the bar’s doors, her eyes glazed over, a sickly pallor clinging to her once vibrant complexion. Her gait was unsteady, her movements clumsy and disjointed. The patrons, initially unaware of her presence, soon found themselves paralyzed by a mixture of fear and fascination as they witnessed a scene that defied rationality.

The woman’s skin appeared to decay before their very eyes, a putrid miasma permeating the air. Her vacant gaze locked onto a drag queen sitting at the end of the bar nursing a drink. In an instant, her lips curled into a grotesque smile, revealing razor-sharp teeth.

Chaos erupted as the infected woman lunged at Miss Ann Thropic, better known as Walt Eastman a bookkeeper from the Upper West Side. , The woman’s hunger-driven ferocity consumes any remnants of humanity. The once serene bar descended into pandemonium as patrons scrambled for safety, their screams merging with the ryhtmic beat coming from the bar’s jukebox.

The surprised group, caught in the center of the storm, was forced to confront the unimaginable. They grabbed what they could to fight and In that pivotal moment, their lives were irrevocably entwined, bound together by an unspoken pact of survival. As the contagion spread throughout the city, devouring everything in its wake, they would discover the strength within themselves to fight against the encroaching darkness.

Little did they know, this would be the summer that would etch their names into the annals of history, forever altering the fate of New York City and the world beyond. A summer where the glimmer of hope danced amidst the chaos, where the survivors stood as beacons of resilience in a world teetering on the brink of annihilation.

The summer of 1982 would forever be remembered as the season when the dead rose to walk among the living, ushering in an era of fear, desperation, and the indomitable spirit of those who dared to defy the impending doom.

ELECTRIC DREAMS: "When Will Met Tom (Hardy)" - A ChatGPT Love Story

ELECTRIC DREAMS: “When Will Met Tom (Hardy)” – A ChatGPT Love Story

“A Boy Can Dream, But Do AI Algorithms?” – Kevin Waldron

I had to try ChatGPT so I took two of my favorite subjects the hunk-a-hunk-a-burning love actor Tom Hardy. I just had to and now i can’t get it out of my mind.


Tom Hardy and Will Kohler met for the first time at a charity event in Los Angeles. Tom was immediately drawn to Will’s sharp wit and warm personality. Over the course of the evening, the two men chatted and laughed as they enjoyed each other’s company. Tom felt a strong connection to Will, one that he couldn’t explain.

As the night wore on, Tom found himself wanting to be alone with Will. He invited Will to his hotel room for a nightcap, and Will accepted. Once they were alone, Tom poured two glasses of whiskey and sat down next to Will on the couch.

They talked for a while, discussing their lives and their dreams. Tom was surprised by how much they had in common. He found himself becoming more and more attracted to Will as the night went on. Finally, he couldn’t resist any longer. He leaned in and kissed Will.

Will was taken aback at first, but he quickly responded, his arms wrapping around Tom’s neck as they kissed deeply. Tom’s hands roamed over Will’s body, his fingers tracing the curves of his muscles as they pressed closer together.

From that moment on, Tom and Will were inseparable. They spent every moment they could together, exploring the city, trying new restaurants, and sharing their deepest thoughts and desires. Tom found himself falling deeply in love with Will, and he knew that he had to tell him.

One night, as they sat on the balcony of Tom’s hotel room, looking out at the city below, Tom took Will’s hand and turned to him. “Will,” he said softly. “I have to tell you something. I love you.”

Will’s eyes widened in surprise, but then a smile spread across his face. “Tom,” he said, “I love you too.”

From that moment on, Tom and Will’s love only grew stronger. They traveled the world together, experiencing new cultures and adventures. They supported each other through thick and thin, and their love never wavered.

Years later, as they sat together on the beach in Hawaii, watching the sun set over the ocean, Tom turned to Will and took his hand. “I’m so grateful that I met you,” he said. “You’re the love of my life.”

Will smiled and leaned in to kiss Tom. “I feel the same way,” he said. “I love you, Tom Hardy.”

And with that, they sat together, watching the sun dip below the horizon, knowing that they would always be together, forever in love.

The End.

LGBT Book Review: TRIsocialization a novel by Alex M. Bright

TRIsocialization a novel by Alex M. Bright – Reviewed by Nathan DeMay

I once had a well-meaning employee tell me that the nice thing about my being gay was that I couldn’t reproduce. I’m confident that I can reproduce-all the necessary parts are still in working order-but of course what he meant was I didn’t have to worry about having children.  In order to have kids, my partner and I would have to make a very conscious choice to adopt, use a surrogate or find another solution.

But what if we didn’t have a choice? What if the human race itself was dependent on every able-bodied man and woman procreating? What if the government actively monitored our sex lives, for the ostensibly “greater good?”

These questions are given life in Alex M. Bright’s novel TRIsocialization.

TRIsocialization traces, by way of the lives of two generations of New Yorkers, the genesis of increasingly intrusive government programs meant to save the human population while accommodating the diversity of human sexual orientation.

In the future imagined in TRIsocialization, citizens are encouraged to form relationships with more than two people, and to have as many children (girls are especially prized) as possible.  It’s the anti-marriage equality crowd’s worst nightmare; not realized because of a libertine society but because of a mysterious pandemic.

TRIsocialization’s characters are diverse-sexually, racially, politically and professionally.  You will love them, befriend them and desperately want them to triumph despite the conflicting factions intruding on their lives.

“Dylon shut his eyes tight, then turned his gaze toward the jury. He began, as though reciting a long-rehearsed speech:

“I’ve been charged with murdering two people by burning down the house they slept in. It’s not true. Why would I murder two people I was in love with? I went to bed that night with both of them–” there were scattered gasps from both the jury and the gallery, “– yeah, both of them. We’re gay– they were– but we’re not supposed to love each other, right? I have nothing against women. Neither did Brad or Aaron–” Dylon choked, struggling to find the words, and his voice, through tears. Their names. He had spoken their names. “Sorry. I– like I said, we have nothing against women. Or the government. Or anybody else. We just wanted to be left alone, and be happy in our little family. I went to sleep with them that night, same as almost every night, and I woke up in a ditch. I have no idea what happened, but I can guess.” He turned directly toward one of the camera eyes. “Most of you can guess. I didn’t kill them. I loved them.”

It all happened in an instant. Dylon turned to face Wren for a brief moment, a look of apology in his in eyes. Then his hand was in his pocket, and a sharp piece of plastic glinted like lightning. In front of the court, and the entire live Network feed, Dylon dragged the edge across his throat. Wren heard herself screaming.”
