Harlow No Porn In Prison!On Monday Pennsylvania's high court ruled and upheld a pornography ban in state prisons. Pennsylvania officials argued that to prevent inappropriate sexual desires among inmates and to maintain a non-hostile working environment for guards and other employees a ban on porn should be put into place. The ban was challenged by convicted rapist Shannon Britain, who claimed the porn ban served no reasonable purpose. Looks like Harlow Cuadra, a former porn performer and serving a life sentence won't be able to keep up with the latest in gay porn. Wonder if this will "prevent inappropriate sexual desires" for Harlow? ... there is always "Bubba", I guess. Harlow was found guilty of killing Bryan Kocis, owner of Cobra Video (a porn studio who discovered Brent Corrigan) and was sentenced to life in prison in Pennsylvania back in March after a jury failed to return a death penalty decision. Harlow saw Kocis as a porn business competitor; he wanted Brent Corrigan who at the time was under contract with Kocis to perform in porn videos with him. Kocis’ body was discovered in his home by firefighters responding to a blaze in a rural house in January 2007. More than 80 percent of his body was covered by third-degree burns and police said the fire had been set deliberately to destroy evidence. An autopsy found that Kocis died of massive blood loss after his head was nearly sliced off. He suffered between 28 and 29 post mortem stab wounds before his home was torched.
Harlow's Appeal Takes TurnAttorneys for Harlow Cuadra have asked a judge to remove them from Cuadra’s appeal of life without parole for the killing of Cobra video owner Bryan Kocis. Lawyers Paul Walker and Joseph D’Andrea said in a court filing that they do not believe Cuadra has the money to pay them and asked the court to appoint new attorneys to handle the appeal. Judge Peter Paul Olszewski, Jr. will hold a hearing on May 22 for Walker and D’Andrea to argue why they should be withdrawn from the case. Last month, the two filed an appeal of the conviction and sentence. The Superior Court of Pennsylvania has not indicated when the appeal might be heard. Cuadra was convicted on March 16 of killing Kocis. Cuadra’s former lover and business partner, 35-year-old Joseph Kerekes, already is serving life after pleading guilty last December to second degree murder after making a deal with prosecutors.

Harlow Cuadra AppealsHarlow Cuadra is appealing his conviction of life without parole for the killing of Cobra video owner Bryan Kocis. In a court filing, lawyers for Cuadra stated that Cuadra “hereby appeals to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania from the conviction and sentence on March 16, 2009.” Cuadra’s former lover and business partner, 35-year-old Joseph Kerekes, already is serving life after pleading guilty last December to second degree murder after making a deal with prosecutors. Kocis’ body was discovered in his home in 2006 by firefighters responding to a blaze in the rural home. More than 80 percent of the body was covered by third-degree burns and police said the fire had been set deliberately to destroy evidence. Forensics experts were able to resurrect the hard drive of a computer found at the scene. The contents led investigators to Cuadra and Kerekes. Cuadra and Kerekes saw Kocis as a competitor. The 27-year-old Cuadra had faced a death sentence, but the jury of eight men and four women could not reach a unanimous decision on whether the prosecution had met the burden of proof that the death penalty was appropriate. During his trial, Cuadra took the stand in his own defense and testified that Kerekes was a controller. He said that Kerekes managed his e-mail accounts and held Cuadra’s credit and identification cards at all times, even when they went out. Cuadra, crying openly, told the jury that as a child he had been sexually abused by his stepfather and hid his homosexuality until he left the Navy. But two police officers who arrested the pair offered conflicting testimony. Luzerne County Detective Daniel Yersha told the court that after Cuadra listened to the charges he told investigators that Kerekes was not involved. “He said, ‘Joe didn’t do it,’” Yersha testified. A second detective involved in the arrest, Dallas Township police Sgt. Doug Higgins, corroborated Yersha’s testimony. Higgins said that after the charges were read, something that took 75 minutes, he asked Cuadra if he were hungry. “He blurted out, Joe didn’t do it,” Higgins testified. A forensics investigator testified that a laptop computer seized from Cuadra’s home had several pictures of Kocis saved to it, as well as nude photos of Cuadra that were sent to Kocis just days before the killing. The prosecution argued that the photos of Kocis were to help Cuadra identify him, and that the nude shots of Cuadra were meant as a lure to get into Kocis’ home.
What About The Appeal Process ?
By Matthew Conaster: The Notice of Appeal is required to be filed within the time allowed by statue (usually 10-30 days following final judgment). Its a simple form and doesn’t set forth the grounds or argument of why he is appealing. Following this filing of the Notice of Appeal the higher court’s clerk will docket the appeal and a time schedule is set by the Appellant Court as to when the briefs are to be filed. Typically the court will order the verbatim transcripts to be prepared by the court’s reporter and address and rule on any matters concerning the defendant’s petition if any to proceed In Forma Pauperis (latin for ‘broke as fuck’) before the appeals process truly begins. I would suspect Harlow has no funds to retain counsel for his direct appeal. Since a direct appeal is a constitutional right afforded to any criminal defendant the court will be required to appoint counsel to represent Harlow on appeal if they find Harlow has no means to employ counsel. His trial attorneys (who were retained during trial) may end up most likely not representing Harlow on appeal and the court will appoint counsel from a pool of attorneys usually more experienced with appeals. Once the initial brief is filed the Commonwealth Attorney General’s office will answer the brief in writing. This process will take many months to complete before the Appeals Court will consider and rule on the appeal. If the Commonwealth Appeals Court Affirms Harlow’s verdict and sentence then Harlow may petition the US Supreme Court for a Writ of Certiorari to hear the appeal court’s decision. If that fails Harlow will then have no other course to fight his case short of another action known as Writ of Habeas Corpus which is basically a post conviction petition that usually shows things like new evidence coming forth or some other matter not then known to everyone during the course of the initial trial. All of these appeal hearings will be mostly done on paper with no appearance in court by Harlow himself. The appeals court may grant a few minutes to Harlow’s attorney for an oral argument before the panel of appeal judges - but short of that this will all be done on paper. Meanwhile Harlow will learn about all of this via US Mail. In fact more people will know about what’s going on before Harlow himself knows. Bottom-line as I see it, Harlow’s trial was more than fair and short of some new evidence that would appear to show him innocent of the crime he doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell. His best bet will be to become a model inmate and hope somewhere in the future the laws may change and afford him a chance at parole or a reduction in his sentence for being a good boy. This is a very likely event that may come to pass as prisons become more crowded and politics shift away from anti-crime legislature. The late 1960s were the last era of this type of current change. They say history repeats itself. In 30-40 years Harlow MAY once again walk the streets. story credit: 365gay.com
Clarke's Saint Bryan KocisRecent discussions about the personal background of murder victim and twink barebacking porn producer, Bryan Kocis are erupting on the Internet in a recent open letter by Kevin Clarke. To view Kevin's open letter visit our friend, Dewayne in San Diego's blog. Below you will find the background of Bryan Kocis which leads up to Clarke's letter where Clarke sets the record straight about the real nature of Bryan Kocis. In August 2003 through February 2004, Bryan Kocis cast Sean Lockhart, a young model, in Cobra's Every Poolboy's Dream giving him the stage name of "Brent Corrigan". Corrigan quickly went on to become the most famous, and most lucrative, of Kocis' stable of actors. On September 13, 2005, Corrigan's attorney announced publicly that Corrigan was underage when he filmed those scenes for Cobra Video, and had used a fake ID to participate in those scenes. Corrigan went on to state that Kocis was aware of his underage status. Cobra denied that they were ever aware of such allegations and publicly stated that they had copies of Corrigan's ID's claiming a birth year of 1985. A civil lawsuit between the two parties erupted soon after. Bryan Kocis was found dead on January 24, 2007, after a fire at his Pennsylvania home. According to the investigating coroner, Kocis was stabbed 28 times and his throat was cut, nearly decapitating him. His body was also left in the house before it was set on fire. A folding-style knife was found nearby. Officials had to use dental records to identify Kocis because his body was burned beyond recognition. On May 15, 2007, two Virginia Beach escorts, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes, were arrested and charged with Kocis' murder. On December 8, 2008, Kerekes pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, theft, tampering with or fabricating evidence, and criminal conspiracy, and was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Jury selection for Cuadra's trial began on February 17, 2009 and the trial began one week later. On February 27th, Brent Corrigan testified for the prosecution about his dealings with Kerekes and Cuadra. Throughout the trial, Cuadra claimed that Kerekes controlled his life, equating their relationship with Stockholm syndrome. He also claimed that Kerekes was the one who murdered Kocis and that he wanted to go to police, but Kerekes kept him from doing so. On March 12, 2009, Cuadra was found guilty of all the charges against him, including first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, arson, robbery, and tampering with or fabricating evidence. On March 16th, he was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Following the trial Bryan Kocis' sister named, Melody, purported to make a public comment on the Harlow & Joe On Trial Blog as follows:
Those of us who have been fortunate to be in Bryan’s life know what a kind, caring, loving, generous and loyal person he was, and for those of you who didn’t know him it’s your loss. Bryan was a good, honest person in a bad, dishonest business. He was known for giving everyone the benefit of the doubt. Bryan made mistakes, but he was a victim of horrible crime, and it was sad how many people forgot that. Sean Lockhart was Bryan’s biggest mistake. He cared for Sean very much, and Sean did nothing but hurt him. I was with Bryan when Sean told him he wasn’t coming back to finish his contract with Cobra, and that he was starting his own company. Bryan just bought him a car. I will never forget how upset Bryan was. Unfortunately Bryan is not here to tell his side of the story.In 2002, police found a videotape of Bryan Kocis, then 39, and a 15-year-old boy in his home. Kocis met the boy on the internet and transported him to his hometown. Kocis pled guilty to one count of Sexual Abuse of a Child. He was initially charged with child pornography, and transportation of a minor for sexual purposes. Since the boy had lied about his age Kocis was given a probation sentence. In 2006 a judge signed paperwork changing Kocis' charge from sex assault to corruption of minors. Kocis' former attorney, Al Flora, said the change was made because the original charge of sexual assault of a child was a mistake and that, "We didn't realize there was an error until 2006." Flora said his former client was a legitimate businessman and not at all a pedophile. Kocis was not required to be registered as a Megan's Law offender. Kevin Clarke (Photo at left Kevin Clarke,Jerry Douglas,George DuRoy) who has spent 15 years in the Gay Porn buisness directing some of the top selling Gay Adult DVD's shares his very unique perspective on Bryan Kocis.

Harlow Goes To Prison For Life
Last Harlow Post Ever: Harlow Cuadra has been sentenced to life in prison in a Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania courtroom this afternoon for the January 2007 murder of Bryan Kocis.Harlow Cuadra will serve life in prison, after the jury of eight men and four women could not reach a unanimous decision whether prosecution presented any aggravating factors worthy of the death penalty. Credit: Story broke at 4:45 pm EDT CitizensVoice.com The same jury that convicted Cuadra Thursday of first-degree homicide for Bryan Kocis' January 2007 murder at his Dallas Township reached an impasse today. The jury deliberated for about five and a half hours before telling count Judge Peter Paul Olszewski Jr. they could not reach a unanimous verdict despite being given more time by the judge. The jury returned to the courtroom around 2:30 to tell Olszewski they agreed one of the factors wasn't valid, but had reach an impasse on the other. Olszewski instructed jurors to try and reach a unanimous decision. The jury foreman didn't specify which of the two aggravating factors they were undecided. Cuadra was found guilty of killing Kocis last week. Cuadra’s former lover and business partner, 35-year-old Joseph Kerekes, already is serving life after pleading guilty last December to second degree murder after making a deal with prosecutors. Cuadra and Kerekes saw Kocis as a business competitor; the pair wanted Brent Corrigan who at the time was under contract with Kocis. Kocis’ body was discovered in his home by firefighters responding to a blaze in the rural house in January 2007.

An autopsy found that Kocis died of massive blood loss after his head was nearly sliced off. He suffered between 28 and 29 post mortem stab wounds before his home was torched.
No Charges 4 Club PittsburghAllegheny County, PA prosecutors will not press charges against a strip district venue, Club Pittsburgh for the death of one of its patrons in January 2009. Cleophus Pettway, 31, of Youngstown, Ohio, was found dead in a private room at Club Pittsburgh, a popular meeting spot for gay men. District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr. said that toxicology results from the Medical Examiner’s office showed that Mr. Pettway had cocaine in his system but also chemicals from a solvent typically used to clean VCRs. The club sold the solvent — advertised under the brand “Maximum Impact” — to patrons, who would use them to get high. Mr. Zappala said that his office would not charge the club with involuntary manslaughter because the death was more likely caused by the cocaine than the solvent. But, he added, the club has been “put on notice” to not sell the solvents anymore.

To Be Sentenced To Death
A Sentence to Life or Death Has Been Postponed Until Monday For Harlow Cuadra.A Northeastern Pennsylvania newspaper, The Times Leader has reported that the sentencing hearing of convicted murderer Harlow Raymond Cuadra, has been continued until Monday, March 16. Prosecutors and defense attorneys will give closing arguments on Monday before the jury decides which sentence will be imposed upon Harlow. The Citizens Voice, another online mainstream media outlet made the following report of the events of the sentencing phase conducted today:
Defense attorneys called nine witnesses, including Cuadra's family members and psychological experts who testified to his background. Cuadra's mother testified for more than an hour on her son's behalf. She sobbed as she answered questions in Spanish and a court worker translated for the jury. "Before he was born, I fought for his life," she said. "And I fight for his life now. That is all I can say."If the jury were to recommend the death penalty and the court sentences Harlow to death, it would be carried out at the State Correctional Institution at Rockview, PA where a special building is used for executions. The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections relates for security puposes, all inmates sentenced to death are assigned to administrative custody status and are housed in Restricted Housing Unit at State Correctional Insitution Greene, located near Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. As the execution date draws near the inmate is moved to the Rockview prison. Linda Young, the girlfriend of an inmate who is currently on death row and is being housed at SCI Green, describes for us the visiting protocol of an inmate on death row, She says, "The visits are non-contact. The visiting area has a control room at one end and several small rooms down both sides. The rooms are numbered. The rooms are divided by a thick glass wall and a built in counter top. There are small mesh grills down both sides of the glass so you can talk. The prisoner has a chair. He is kept handcuffed throughout. The visitor also has a chair. Vending machines for candy and drinks are provided for the visitors but not the prisoner. There is a bathroom. If the prisoner needs the bathroom his visitor has to inform the guards and they don't hurry." "Visits can vary in length and number depending on what's happening in the prison. Because I traveled a great distance to the prison I was granted a special visit which had to be applied for months in advance. The time they gave me was from 9am-3:30pm, but again sometimes this time frame may vary for others."
Cuadra's older brother, Jose Cuadra, described the family's poverty when Harlow Cuadra was a child and how Harlow Cuadra was sexually molested by his stepfather when he was a child. Prosecution concluded its testimony this morning after calling five witnesses. Bryan Kocis' mother and father described their "caring" and "generous" son, and the pain in their lives since his murder. Michael Kocis testified his son was his hunting buddy. Since his death, he hasn't had a full night of sleep in the past 26 months. Michael Kocis read his answers from a prepared sheet, but had to stop several times to wipe tears. "I'm going to try and get through this," he told jurors before detailing how Bryan Kocis donated money to charities helping battered women and the United Way. His "first and only son" was an Eagle Scout and a deacon at his church, Michael Kocis said.
The inmates are treated with either indifference or like something they've found in the gutter! It's heartbreaking. On arriving at the prison you sign in at the lobby. Photographic I.D. is required. Lockers are provided for personal belongings as the only thing you can take to the visiting area are some coins for the vending machines. The lobby officer gives you a small see through bag to keep it in. You're given a sheet of paper with the inmates name and the visiting area on it. Then you go through a metal detector and then your hands and clothing are swabbed down for drug traces." "When called you make your way through a series of automatic doors and corridors, showing the paper through the glass to guards in secure rooms. Reaching the visiting area you hand the paper to the control room guard. On leaving you reverse the process." The last execution to take place in Pennsylvania was on July 6, 1999, when Gary Heidnik was executed by lethal injection. He had been convicted and given two death sentences in July 1988 for savagely murdering two women he had imprisoned in his home. In the event Harlow were to be sentenced to death, it would be a very good assumption that Harlow will appeal his case. The appeals process can draw out for a decade or more. If the Supreme Court affirms the sentence, the case goes to the Governor's Office where it is reviewed by appropriate legal counsel and, ultimately, by the Governor himself. Only the Governor may set the execution date, which is done through the signing of a document known as the Governor's Warrant. If no last minute stays don't happen, the condemned person is usually bound to a gurney and a member of the execution team positions several heart monitors on this skin. Two needles (one is a back-up) are then inserted into usable veins, usually in the inmates arms. Long tubes connect the needle through a hole in a cement block wall to several intravenous drips. The first is a harmless saline solution that is started immediately. Then, at the warden's signal, a curtain is raised exposing the inmate to the witnesses in an adjoining room. Then, the inmate is injected with sodium thiopental - an anesthetic, which puts the inmate to sleep. Next flows pavulon or pancuronium bromide, which paralyzes the entire muscle system and stops the inmate's breathing. Finally, the flow of potassium chloride stops the heart. Death results from anesthetic overdose and respiratory and cardiac arrest while the condemned person is unconscious. Medical ethics preclude doctors from participating in executions. However, a doctor will certify the inmate is dead. This lack of medical participation can be problematic because often injections are performed by inexperienced technicians or orderlies. If a member of the execution team injects the drugs into a muscle instead of a vein, or if the needle becomes clogged, extreme pain can result. Many prisoners have damaged veins resulting from intravenous drug use and it is sometimes difficult to find a usable vein, resulting in long delays while the inmate remains strapped to the gurney. Mark and myself don't support the death penalty. The death penalty has been debated by civilizations throughout history. What crimes, if any, are so heinous in nature as to justify killing another person and what system of justice can be created to prevent further killing are challenging questions. While capital punishment has been banned throughout parts of the world, execution remains a legal option in many countries. The United States, for example, executed over 1,100 people since 1977 primarily by means of lethal injection. Those executions generally took place with popular support among Americans who believe that the most terrible crimes should receive the most terrible punishment. Although not exclusive to murder - the death penalty can be applied for treason, espionage, and other crimes - the majority of cases involve the execution of people who have killed others. In Iran for example, one can be executed for simply being gay. Given the long-time divisive debate on this topic among philosophers, religious leaders, politicians, scientists, and the general public we've decided to devote this article to simply say that TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT. Harlow deserves the penalty of being imprisoned for the remaining years of his life ! What he did was horrible and certainly is an embrassment to our adult industry and moreso our Pride in what we struggle to be ... GAY HUMAN BEINGS.

GUILTY IN THE 1st DEGREE !!!
A jury has found Harlow Cuadra guilty of first-degree homicide today in the murder of Bryan Kocis.A jury in Pennsylvania has found Harlow Cuadra guilty of first degree murder and all 11 other counts in Luzerne County. Cuadra, 27, was on trial for killing Bryan Kocis, 44, at Kocis' Dallas Township home in January 2007. The jury of eight men and four women began deliberating at 10:30 this morning and took less than four hours to reach the verdict.
Because it's a capital murder case, the jury will now have to decide whether Cuadra should be sentenced to life in prison or death.Harlow's mother, Gladis Zaldiva, cried uncontrollably yelling out, “Joseph Kerekes, Joseph Kerekes, he is the killer, not my son.” She also yelled out in Spanish as she left the courthouse. Harlow showed little emotion other than slumping in the chair. He appeared withdrawn and said nothing when escorted out of the Luzerne County Courthouse about an hour after the jury found him guilty. Kocis’ parents, Michael and Joyce Kocis, tightly embraced one another as the verdicts were read just after 2 p.m. inside the crowded courtroom. They hugged District Attorney Jacqueline Musto Carroll and lead prosecutor Assistant District Attorney Michael Melnick prior to exiting the courtroom. Jurors will hold a penalty phase hearing today (Friday) to determine if Cuadra deserves the death penalty.

Harlow Cuadra TestifiedHarlow Cuadra testified yesterday in his capital homicide trial and has said that his lover and business partner Joseph Kerekes murdered Bryan Kocis. Harlow related in his testimony that on the coaching of Joe he went there to Kocis' private home to discuss being a model in a Cobra Video production. Today is the 11th day of this ongoing trial and going against the advise of his attorneys Harlow described how after he arrived at the Kocis house Joe rapped on the door while he was inside and a fight between Joe and Kocis ensued and further testified "Joseph reaches in his pocket and pulls out a knife and slashed Bryan's throat. I yelled, "Joe, what are you doing, he said to get the fuck out." In further testimony by Harlow this afternoon he testifed that he ran and hid in the back seat of a rental car Joe had driven to take him to Bryan Kocis home in Dallas Township, Pennsylvania after Joe became violent. He went on to detail how the two of them were afraid and traveled to South Beach, Florida where they lived in a motel room for several months before returning to their home in Virginia Beach. Harlow explained in his testimony how he was sexually abused as a child, broke relationships with his family because he was gay and how Joe's family took him in and showed him love. He alluded to Joe being the dominate one in the relationship and described how Joe managed all the business affairs and Harlow described under oath. "I can't even go to the store to buy toilet paper without him." Harlow testified about his life in Florida, how he enlisted in the Navy in late 1999, how he fell in love with an naval officer who was later transferred to San Diego. Harlow said after his lover (naval officer) was transferred, he felt alone and met Joe at a shopping mall after talking with him in a chat room online. He described how his relationship with Joe grew into the escort and gay film production business it was prior to the couple's arrest for the murders. Harlow said, "(Joe) was always with me, everywhere I went, he was with me." At the opening of this morning's session of court Joe Kerekes, (now 35 years old) refused to testify for Harlow. Joe dressed in a white shirt with the letters "DOC" on the back, and brown pants, walked into the courtroom with Harlow staring at him. Joe didn't appear to look at Harlow who was sitting at what reporters descibe as "just 15 feet away from the witness stand." Harlow's attorney Joseph D'Andrea questioned Joe about the few times he visited him at the state prison after Joe pleaded guilty for the murder after a December 2008 court hearing when was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Joe said on the stand, "I've been thinking a lot about my parents, I think it will destroy them to say something that I didn't do, what I told you (D'Andrea) is untrue." Following that, Joe was whisked out of the courtroom and is being held in custody in the county jail pending further needs from the court. Throughout the prosecution's case, Harlow's attorneys have attempted to blame the murder on Joe, claiming Joe was the more dominant person in the relationship. For Up-To-The Minute Reporting On The Trial Visit Our Network Blog Partner, Harlow & Joe On Trial If convicted for this brutal murder Harlow could join the likes of other well known gay killers like John Wayne Gacy and Jeffery Dahmer. Closing statements are expected to reveal how Harlow suffered from extraordinary pressures akin to the Stockholm Syndrome effects suffered by abused children having been sexually abused in their childhood, battered women, prisoners of war, cult members, incest victims, criminal hostages. It seems pretty clear by me that the trial thus far has painted a perfect picture to the jury of Joe being the controlling and often intimidating factor in the entire course of events leading up to and beyond the murder of gay bareback porn producer, Bryan Kocis.

The Harlow Cuadra Sex VideosThis boy next door sold fantasy to men out of his home in Virginia Beach. He and his older lover Joe Kerekes ran an adult escort service and lived a very comfortable life going to local gay nightclubs nightly and even started their own porn site featuring themselves and other local boys. This self described "all american boy" with dashing good looks is Harlow Raymond Cuadra now 27 years old and is facing the death penalty if convicted for the murder of a Pennsylvania gay bareback film producer, Bryan Kocis. In opening arguments this week at the trial, Harlow's defense attorney claimed that "Harlow didn't do it" and that "Sean Lockhart (Brent Corrigan)...had the ability to kill Kocis." Brent Corrigan is expected to testify tommorrow in the Wilkes-Barree, PA courtroom. It's been alleged that the murder may have stemmed from an argument as to who could work with the porn star Brett Corrigan, who had once been contracted to Bryan Kocis' company Cobra Video. Prosecutors and defense attorneys interviewed 122 potential jurors to get the panel of eight men and four women. The four alternates are composed of three women and one man. The 99th potential juror told the judge, “He looks like a kid" - “I just can’t believe he did it.” It would seem to this writer that the image he will display during this trial will be one single major thing that will have a major effect on the jury's verdict. This gruesome murder is just like the stuff we watch on American Justice and many other true crime documentaries. Michael Gross wrote a chilling story entitled, The Case Of The Cobra Killer which appeared in OUT magazine - if you haven't read it, you will find it some very interesting reading.
