Middle Ground

There is a silence in the room; an eerie, lingering void in the air surrounding me and it is holding me still. There is an unknowing, an uncertainty, an unwillingness and a question that I cannot seem to answer.

Snow Days for Snow-Gays

(And Other Lovers of Queer Amusement) On these long, blustery days in which driving is hazardous and snuggling with fur-babies under warm covers is obligatory, what’s a queer to do all day?
