It’s cute to see straight people trying to contrive conflict in love stories between heterosexual protagonists, pulling out every stop to make their love seem forbidden. For decades, stories of forbidden LGBT love were the only love stories even available to the LGBT community. We’re tired of it! Luckily, recent years have seen new types of gay stories that treat gay love as just as complex as straight love, and not necessarily mired in angst. Pride.com keeps you up-to-date on gay stories, whether fictional or in the real world.
