Adam Powell talks about the independent online book store we should all be supporting ShopQueer.co

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , ,

 

 

Adam Powell and his partner the award-winning author Eric Cervini have launched an online independent queer bookstore …. shopqueer.co … that pays the authors much more than the usual percentage. Plus in light of the recent spate of gay book bans throughout the USA, the couple are focusing on getting these books to more remote and challenged LGBTQ+ communities. They currently have a Crowd Fundraiser in order to buy a school bus that they can convert into the Rainbow Book Bus to actually physically get out into the community.

Queerguru spoke with a very passionate Adam Powell on how he and Eric are so close to fulfilling their dream.

Queerguru is so happy to endorse this wonderful scheme that we hope will never stop growing

You can support NOW by buying book/s or donating to their fundraiser

Todd Hughes, one half of queer filmmaking duo EBERSOLE HUGHES (Mansfield 6667, House of Cardin) …..the other half is his husband David Ebersole …. has published his first book: a memoir of the Hollywood star of the 40’s and 50’s LIZABETH SCOTT.

As a young man, Hughes had a major crush on her and eventually wangled an invitation to lunch. A friendship blossomed and Hughes became fixated with the actress and started to appreciate that she never got the same fame and recognition as her peers.

He talked with QUEERGURU about the book and how he went from fan to friend

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , , , , , ,

 

This memoir is of the extraordinary frenetic life of a skinny queer kid who left his home in the grim North of England to ‘find himself in London‘. In the 1980s and 1990s he found himself as a central figure in a colorful larger-than-life hedonistic queer group of non-binary drag queens and soon become known as the Queen of Soho.

He ran Trannyshack his own club night at Madame Jojo’s THE place to party and be seen. There was however another side to Hodge, now known as Dusty O, as at the height of the AIDS pandemic he took a day job as a service worker at The London Lighthouse the purpose-built leading AIDS Hospice, It set him aside from many of his celebrity buddies, and it grounded him enough to be able to move forward to his present life as a very successful artist

Queerguru talked with the disarmingly charming Hodges about this biography that has been getting rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. It’s not just the joyous tale of Hodge’s fascinating roller-coast life but it is a remarkable and essential record queer history of one of the most tumultuous times of our Community’s history.
