Books: September 2011
By Howard Roffman
While the boys of Bel Ami dedicate their selves to a stunning performance—as can be seen and admired in the label’s many movies—Roffman follows them with his camera. He captures their funny and sexy moments; he watches them in their quiet and in their frisky minutes. You can tell that over the years of cooperation between the Bel Ami boys and their photographer a certain kind of intimateness has grown; the pictures are even more spontaneous and outgoing than in the first two books—they are all about enjoying the good life. And though Roffman sticks to his distinctive and moving style his new pictures are more sexually charged than all his work before. PARADISE FOUND contains intimate pictures of adolescent men. A splendid paradise—with no Eve in sight.

A Queer Thing Happened to America
By Michael L Brown
Forty years ago being a homo or calling someone a homo was regarded as the biggest slur possible, now things have turned and America is undergoing drastic change, where challenging attitudes and a positive identification is at the forefront of social/political/religious revolution. This book chronicles this amazing transformation, from Stonewall Inn riot to the Whitehouse, and addresses the question head-on; is there a gay agenda or is it simply a fiction of the fundamental right? Written in a lively and compelling style, but backed with massive research and extensive interaction with the LGBT community.
