Judge Dredd fans have been reacting to an image of the comic book hero in the arms of another man with the caption, “I guess, somehow, I’d always known I was gay. I was just too scared to admit it.” The latest issue of the 2000 AD comic is called “Closet”, but the illustration actually depicts a man dressed in a Judge Dredd costume, and not the hero himself. Writer Rob Williams says Dredd “may well be gay, straight or bi”, but his sexuality is likely to remain a mystery, at least for now. [Guardian]

Out of the Closet & Onto the Page: Writer Devin O’Neill asks, “In a world that’s on an inevitable road towards acceptance, what’s the next step for LGBT characters and literature?” [IndieReader]

How Out is Safe?: If you’re LGBT and thinking of starting a family, Michael Shelton’s new book, Family Pride, can help navigate coming out to neighbors and protecting your children. [WashingtonBlade]
