With a new introduction by Jim Hutton’s co-writer Tim Wapshott, Mercury and Me is the story of rock’s oddest couple. The relationship between Freddie Mercury and Jim Hutton evolved over several months in 1984 and 1985. Even when they first slept together Hutton had no idea who Mercury was, and when the star told him his name it meant nothing to him. Hutton worked as a barber at the Savoy Hotel and retained his job and his lodgings in Sutton, Surrey, for two years before moving in with Mercury, and then worked as his gardener. He was never fully assimilated into Mercury's jet-setting lifestyle, nor did he want to be, but from 1985 until Mercury's death in 1991 he was closer to him than anyone and knew all Mercury's closest friends: the other members of Queen, Elton John, David Bowie and Phil Collins to name a few. Ever present at the countless Sunday lunch gatherings and opulent parties, Hutton has a wealth of anecdotes as well as a deep understanding of, Mercury's life. He also nursed Mercury through his terminal illness, often held him throughout the night in his final weeks, and was with him as he died. No one can tell the story of the last few years of Mercury's private life - the ecstasies and the agonies - more accurately or honestly than Jim Hutton.

<b><em>The First Man on the Moon</em> is a riveting story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, a true page-turner, full of unexpected twists. There are upheavals, escapes and near-misses, losses and gains, but never does Laurent loses sight of his ultimate objective: a baby.</b><br /><br />Laurent and Harry want a baby. Easier said than done for a gay couple. When their adoption application is rejected, the two men embark on an insane four-year, four-clinic, four-egg-donor, nine-surrogate adventure.<br /><br />Their journey takes them to Bangkok, where they must navigate the shambles of Thailand's big fertility business. From Baby Gammy, a Thai surrogacy baby born with Down syndrome and allegedly abandoned by his Australian intended parents, to the visiting Japanese millionaire trying to father a thousand babies, the Thailand surrogacy microcosm has its share of scandals and oddities.<br /><br />Things become even more complicated when a military junta abolishes democracy in the name of love and declares surrogacy out of bounds. Doctors refuse to examine surrogate mothers and would-be parents of surrogacy babies find themselves stranded in Bangkok, unsure if they'll be able to bring their children home.<br /><br />Laurent and Harry's yearning for a family is enduring, but as they encounter unscrupulous surrogacy agents and try to play according to the rules, miscarriages and heartbreak, the likelihood of becoming parents is far from certain.<br /><br /><em>The First Man on the Moon</em> is a true story.

Twisted Straight is an intensely personal account of a woman who inadvertently finds herself in the closet with a husband who is gay. She works to help him accept himself as the person he was born to be, as she examines her own deeply rooted reasons for holding on to a relationship that does not give her what she needs. <br /><br />When a man from her past suddenly steals her heart, she is faced with the thrill of being truly desired for the first time, while possibly stumbling too quickly into a relationship where she might again mistake compatibility for love. She must reveal insecurities, face fears, and be honest with herself if she hopes to embrace life, love, and friendship with the two men she holds closest to her heart. <br /><br />As she struggles to define herself in the middle of two very different relationships, she discovers answers to questions about love, fear, separation, partnership, sexuality, and more.

This memoir by Trudie S. Barreras is specifically focused on the author’s efforts to find a meaningful basis in the context of Christianity to maintain an ongoing relationship with her husband after he acknowledged his homosexuality. Although there are many “coming out” stories now available, and a few narratives of the way in which a heterosexual spouse of a gay individual may have made a realistic adjustment to co-parenting of children after separation, the option to remain married seems to be fairly unique. Besides describing the actual events in the lives of this couple and their extended family, the narrative discusses aspects of the development of Metropolitan Community Church, outreach experiences in the Dominican Republic, and the interplay of other factors such as retreats and meditation. The author discusses here reasons for rejecting the extremely rigid definitions of sexual ethics promulgated by major Christian denominations in favor of a more honest interpretation of Love as taught by Jesus.

<p><strong><em></em></strong></p><p><em><strong></strong></em></p><p><strong><em>NEW YORK TIMES</em> BESTSELLER</strong></p><p><strong>"Lucid and wrenching...</strong><em><strong>Forward</strong></em><strong> puts [Wambach's] achievement in context with painful and beautiful candor." —NPR</strong></p><p><strong><em>"Forward</em> is the powerful story of an athlete who has inspired girls all over the world to believe in themselves."  —Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, </strong><em><strong>New York Times</strong></em><strong> Bestselling author of </strong><em><strong>Lean In</strong></em> </p><p><strong>“This is the best memoir I’ve read by an athlete since Andre Agassi’s </strong><em><strong>Open</strong></em><strong>.”  —Adam Grant, Wharton professor and </strong><em><strong>New York Times </strong></em><strong>bestselling author of </strong><em><strong>Originals</strong></em><strong> and </strong><em><strong>Give and Take</strong></em></p><p><p>Abby Wambach has always pushed the limits of what is possible. At age seven she was put on the boys’ soccer team. At age thirty-five she would become the highest goal scorer—male or female—in the history of soccer, capturing the nation’s heart with her team’s 2015 World Cup Championship. Called an inspiration and “badass” by President Obama, Abby has become a fierce advocate for women’s rights and equal opportunity, pushing to translate the success of her team to the real world. </p><p>As she reveals in this searching memoir, Abby’s professional success often masked her inner struggle to reconcile the various parts of herself: ferocious competitor, daughter, leader, wife. With stunning candor, Abby shares her inspiring and often brutal journey from girl in Rochester, New York, to world-class athlete. Far more than a sports memoir, <em>Forward </em>is gripping tale of resilience and redemption—and a reminder that heroism is, above all, about embracing life’s challenges with fearlessness and heart.</p><p></p>

<p><b>A candid memoir of denial, stolen identities, betrayal, faking it, and coming out.</b></p><p><i>Do you know me?</i>, the email began, sparking tremors of fear that turned into a full quake of panic when William Dameron discovered that his selfie had been stolen by strangers. On social networks and dating sites, his image and identity—a forty-year-old straight white male—had been used to hook countless women into believing in lies of love and romance. Was it all an ironic cosmic joke? Almost a decade prior, William himself had been living a lie that had lasted for more than twenty years. His secret? He was a gay man, a fact he hid from his wife and two daughters for almost as long as he had hidden it from himself.</p><p>In this emotional and unflinchingly honest memoir of coming out of the closet late in life, owning up to the past, and facing the future, William Dameron confronts steroid addiction, the shame and homophobia of his childhood, the sledgehammer of secrets that slowly tore his marriage apart, and his love for a gay father of three that would once again challenge the boundaries of trust. At the true heart of <i>The Lie</i> is a universal story about turning self-doubt into self-acceptance and about pain, anger, and the long journey of both seeking and giving forgiveness.</p>

Award-winning author, actor, artist and activist, Thom Bierdz, continues to stun readers with bold disclosures in this new book querying 60 male sexual assault survivors. The content is RAW, graphic in text, unedited: misspelling and typos intended to authenticate these victim’s gripping, incredulous and more often than not, horrifying histories. Still, a few do not regret the assaults, and give their reasons why. The surprising take-away is that only one thing can be more damaging than boys being raped, and that is boys being shamed for 70 years. Incest, kidnaps, gang-rapes, pastors with guns and gay men taking brides to hide their “naughty” homosexuality, your heart will break at the obstacles such young souls had to endure. Millions know Bierdz from The Young & The Restless (Phillip Chancellor III), Melrose Place, Old Dogs New Tricks, but are unaware of the sexual assaults which he just revealed in Young, Gay & Restless, My SCANDALOUS On-Screen & Off-Screen Sexual Liberations.
