Colton Haynes: His Way
I had the pleasure of interviewing Colton Haynes about his new memoir Miss Memory Lane. The full piece is at Pride.com and a link will appear below the excerpt.
I’ve watched Colton for a long time and always knew he had something deep and troubling inside of him. The book itself isn’t polished and it sort of defies genre, but it sticks with you and lingers in your mind. Colton has made himself vulnerable and open to critique, judgement and hopefully support.
The book is available now wherever books are sold, the audiobook is forthcoming. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.Continue reading Colton Haynes: His Way

The effect of these films and stories can’t be denied. Millions of little girls want to be princesses and millions of little boys want to be valiant princes.Continue reading Disney’s ‘Sneakerella’ is a Fun Twist on an Old Classic
