    Ted confronts his midlife crisis head-on and finally reunites with Blake. Their relationship evolves quickly, and in a few months, Michael moves in with David and meets his son. Two things surprised me about this book: first, how deeply researched it is I will be looking up some of the historical and theoretical references citedand second, how hopeful it is about the future.

Ted is Melanie's accountant who once harbored a longstanding crush on Michael.

    Quits Vangard to follow Brian when he starts his own firm, Kinnetic. Surprising, inspiring, and thoughtful. While he and Justin have an on-and-off-again relationship, Justin is the only one of his sexual encounters that Brian finds himself falling in love with and the only one he continues to have sex with after the first night. In one of the strongest chapters, Eaklor conveys the powerful fusion of lifestyle with liberation many GLBT people experienced. Justin says yes, but Brian tells him to go to New York to pursue his art because he would be more successful there than he would be in Pittsburgh.

    Brian also becomes a father that night, bearing a son with Lindsay through artificial insemination. Later in the second season, Justin and Michael co-create the sexually explicit underground comic Rage, featuring a "Gay Crusader" superhero based on Brian. We hear women in the sex-segregated spaces of convents and harems whispering words of love. Callie remains a friend of Hunter and appears occasionally for the duration of the series. The show climaxes near the end of the series when a benefit to support opposition to Proposition 14 hosted at Brian's club Babylon after repeated relocations of the benefit, due to discrimination is attacked by a bomb that initially kills 4, and eventually another 3 and injures Michael marries Ben Bruckneran HIV-positive college professor, and the couple adopts a teenage son, James "Hunter" Montgomery, who is also HIV-positive as a result of his experiences as a young hustler.
