On the 6th day of sexy, we bring to you E.D. Parr’s new Evernight Publishing release of the Male/Male holiday romance–Make a Wish. To celebrate this day, here are six organizations that work to promote LGBT issues and get equality for all and are wishing for donations that can help to continue their work.
1. The Trevor Project – Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24.
2. Human Rights Campaign – The Human Rights Campaign represents a force of more than 1.5 million members and supporters nationwide. As the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization, HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.
3. PFLAG – Uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) with families, friends, and allies, PFLAG is committed to advancing equality through its mission of support, education, and advocacy. PFLAG has 400 chapters and 200,000 supporters crossing multiple generations of American families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. This vast grassroots network is cultivated, resourced, and serviced by PFLAG National, located in Washington, D.C., the National Board of Directors and 13 volunteer Regional Directors.
4. Astrae Foundation – For nearly 40 years, the Astraea Foundation has been supporting activism and action in areas where the need for resources is greatest; in fact, Astraea’s support often represents the first major infusion of funding for a vast majority of grantee partners. We prioritize the leadership of LGBTQI women, people of color, trans* people, intersex individuals, and youth, believing that the people most frequently marginalized are often best positioned to inform and lead.
5. GLSEN– GLSEN (pronounced “glisten”) was founded in 1990 by a small, but dedicated group of teachers in Massachusetts who came together to improve an education system that too frequently allows its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) students to be bullied, discriminated against, or fall through the cracks.
6. GLAAD – GLAAD rewrites the script for LGBTQ acceptance. As a dynamic media force, GLAAD tackles tough issues to shape the narrative and provoke dialogue that leads to cultural change. GLAAD protects all that has been accomplished and creates a world where everyone can live the life they love.
Make a Wish, E.D.Parr Erotic, romantic,
a Christmas MMromance to make you tingle
It’s the day before Christmas Eve and gorgeous, happy, Nick Kringle is making
deliveries on the main street of the city when a car breaks down at the
Amid the seasonal crowds and inclement weather, Dylan West gets out of his car and tries to push it to the side of the road.
Nick rushes to help him and comes face to face with the most delicious man he’s ever seen.
Dylan’s down on his luck, but Nick believes in magic.
Can wishes come true? You bet—especially if Nick Kringle has anything to do with
Who is Nick Kringle?
With a name like that you might think he’s the jolly old elf in red, but Nick is a
gorgeous guy who just happens to have a touch of the supernatural about him. He
drives a red SUV, he delivers goods, and sometimes they’re straight from
somewhere special—a place of magic and kindness.
Nick is gorgeous, kind, generous, loving just the kind of man that down on his luck Dylan West needs to run into. Could it be fate that makes his car break down
unexpectedly almost next to Nick on the busy main street full of hectic
Christmas shoppers and travelers? Maybe…
The city street glistened with rivers of red, green, bright pink, and white light
thrown there by the stores and cafés decked out for the holiday season. Rain
fell in drifting sheets as a chill wind ravaged the shoppers rushing from one
place to another, some laden with parcels, others hunched against the weather
in their winter coats.
Nick parked his SUV in the first available space, opened the trunk with the interior lever, and leaped out. He didn’t feel the cold unless snow lay knee deep on the
ground and even then, he enjoyed the beauty, and the way a new white fall would
change the light, way too much to complain about the chill.
As he ran around to the back of his vehicle, the squeal of tires braking hard and
the clamor of honking horns made him spin around. In the junction behind him,
standing motionless, was a stalled car. Other drivers surged around the
stationary vehicle, making everything worse by taking space in the oncoming
lanes so that everyone crammed dangerously together.
The driver of the offending vehicle edged out of his open car door, narrowly missed by a small car that chanced overtaking just as the lights turned red.
Nick cast a keen gaze over the man, registering his muscled body beneath an
inexpensive suit and his thick dark hair, pushed back from his forehead so that
the front spiked up. Nick watched the man lean into the open driver’s side door
and attempt to shove the heavy vehicle to the side of the road. The man’s pants
stretched over his hard ass and a sigh of appreciation escaped Nick. With one
hand on the wheel, and the other lodged in the gap between open door and car,
the man clearly needed help. Nick clicked the trunk of his SUV closed and
jogged over to help.
“Hi, I’ll lend a hand,” he called to the stranded driver. The man straightened to
answer and Nick was face to face with one of the most gorgeous men he’d ever
seen. Nick never hid his emotions. They shone from his ice-blue eyes and exuded
from his well-toned body. He smiled at the man in a way he knew and didn’t care
broadcast attraction, desire—pure sex.
Apparently unaffected by Nick’s charisma, the man gave a grateful nod. “Thanks.” He leaned into the task of pushing the car out of the way, as the traffic lined up behind him, and the sky opened with a fresh punishing downpour.
