ADVERTISMENT

Remember when just the mere image of a gay or lesbian couple hugging or kissing made your heart race? Kids today. They have no idea what it was like to sneak a copy of After Dark from a Waldenbooks back in the day. Fortunately, Books Inc, our fave local bookstore, this week showcases a touching memoir (see the lead feature in the BARtab section), a gay wedding book, and even a drag queen reading from saucy tomes. And, Lambda Literary Award finalists read at the Public Library. Elsewhere, sexy gay comic/graphic novel artists get an exhibit and a bar night, plus gay guys gather to draw nude hunks in a SoMa studio. With the wealth of queer stuff being shared this week, I feel almost spoiled.
