Where to start?


OK. The first gay novel I read is "A  Boy's Own Story" by Edmund White. I love this writer as I don't even know where to begin to find out what this busy of gay is about.


So thanks for the education.


Then somewhere along the timeline, I read "Borrowed Time" by Paul Monette and cried my eyes out. 


So touching. 


A bit embarrassed when I read "Hold Tight" written by Christopher Bram. Quite a lot of sex scenes in this one. 


This is all good and done when I was very young. 


I haven't read Two Boys Kissing nor books by Larry Kramer. But I watched Normal Heart and love the movie. 


Who wouldn't love the Hulk (The Avengers) kissing Neil (White Collar).  


Not really into romance novels for whatever combination of gender. So, didn't read a lot of romance. But there are elements of romance in these books.
