The Equal Rights Blog Hop


What does being a member of the GLBT community mean to me?

I believe in freedom. The freedom to be whoever you want to be. The freedom to love and marry. The freedom to walk to the store at midnight without fear of being raped or bashed. The freedom to believe or not believe in whichever deity you choose.
I write stories in which people find love. It might be two men, two women, two men and a woman, or one man and one woman. The point is, that they are consenting adults and they love each other.
Every person needs to accept responsibility for their actions. A woman sitting on a beach in a bikini did not “make” a man rape her. He chose to act that way. Two men kissing did not “make” another man bash them. The attacker chose to respond as he did. Everyone in society has to be educated to understand that acting violently is a choice. A choice that is inappropriate and will not be accepted.
It is time for the world to accept that people are all different and should be free to express their differences in public, and that violence is not, and never will be, an acceptable response to such freedoms.

I have a new male/male short romance just released for the Fourth of July. “Fireworks at the Lake”.


“Fireworks at the Lake” blurb:
Andrew didn’t want to spend the Fourth of July long weekend with the people from the office so he goes to the lake instead.
There he sees Luke, a blond Viking who arouses every craving for love and lust inside him. But can he overcome his low self-esteem from when Rory rejected his love and open his heart to another man?

    What an apt sentiment for the Fourth of July.

  5. The freedom to walk to the store at midnight without fear of being raped or bashed.

    Hear, hear! We talk a lot about freedom--especially around this time of year--but if it is not for everyone, then what does it really mean?

  8. I love your answer for this question and I totally agree. Why can't everyone get the same choices and rights? There is no reason why they can't. Freedom is great. Congrats on the new release- awesome cover!

  19. I live in a land based on the principles of equality and freedom, and yet sometimes, it shocks me as to how people think it's okay to take away either of those. I believe people deserve to be free to be who they were born to be, and that everyone should just bloody well mind their own business. Thanks for sharing and participating Berengaria.
