Blake Cabello attends college on a football scholarship. He lives in a frat house and easily up to his reputation as a hot jock, until his father decides to get remarried. Jamie Rush was a senior in high school and living a quiet life with his mom when she married Blake’s dad. Jamie came out to her and his friends in Oregon years before and his new step-father and step-brother, as masculine as they both are, don’t seem to have a problem with that. That is until Jamie leaves for college and the same fraternity house that his step-brother has lived in for the past year. Jamie just wants to get an education. He joined the fraternity to please his mother and step-father who had met there years earlier. Blake just wants to keep his reputation intact and do his best to not disappoint his father. Smaller than the rest of them and not the least bit aggressive, Jamie becomes an easy target for the bullies that live in the frat house. If that wasn’t bad enough, the step-brother he has looked up to and even developed a little crush on at home, seems to always be right there in the center of it all, and not on Jamie’s side. Jamie doesn’t want to dislike Blake, but sometimes it seems that’s exactly what Blake is trying to get him to do. Blake doesn’t really have a problem with Jamie, but he does have a reputation to uphold. As a matter of fact, Blake has a lot of secrets that he’s struggling with, an almost double life that he’s leading and scared to death that someone else is going to discover. For one thing he’s been having dreams about his step-brother. They’re unsettling and confusing. He’s not gay, not even a little bit, so why does Jamie have such an effect on him? Then there’s his involvement in the underground world of fighting. He thinks it’s a good way to release his stress and actually do something just for himself for a change…but has he gotten in too deep? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard L. Walton.

Actress Cornelia Otis Skinner and journalist Emily Kimbrough offer a lighthearted, hilarious memoir of their European tour in the 1920s, when they were fresh out of college from Bryn Mawr. Some of the more amusing anecdotes involve a pair of rabbit-skin capes that begin shedding at the most inopportune moments and an episode in which the girls are stranded atop Notre Dame cathedral at midnight. And, of course, there´s romance, in the form of handsome young doctor Tom Newhall and college ´´Lothario´´ Avery Moore. Published in 1942, the book spent five weeks at the top of the New York Times best-seller list in the winter of 1943 and was made into a motion picture in 1944. 1. Language: English.

Buried for decades, the Up Stairs Lounge tragedy has only recently emerged as a catalyzing event of the gay liberation movement. In revelatory detail, Robert W. Fieseler chronicles the tragic event that claimed the lives of 31 men and one woman on June 24, 1973, at a New Orleans bar, the largest mass murder of gays until 2016. Relying on unprecedented access to survivors and archives, Fieseler creates an indelible portrait of a closeted, blue-collar gay world that flourished before an arsonist ignited an inferno that destroyed an entire community. The aftermath was no less traumatic - families ashamed to claim loved ones, the Catholic Church refusing proper burial rights, the city impervious to the survivors´ needs - revealing a world of toxic prejudice that thrived well past Stonewall. Yet the impassioned activism that followed proved essential to the emergence of a fledgling gay movement. Tinderbox restores honor to a forgotten generation of civil-rights martyrs. 1.
