This site is dedicated to…
Brew Maxwell has had an immeasurably positive effect on our lives,
through his fantastic writing and his friendship. His Foley-Mashburn
Saga has taught us that being gay should, and can, bring us joy,
without fear, shame, or guilt. We were created gay, and there
should be no reason or acceptable excuse for that fact to limit our
productivity, success, and enjoyment of life.
Brew’s saga begins with the fourteen chapters of "Tim". If you'll
read Chapter 1 of "Tim", we're convinced you'll read the remaining
chapters of that first segment of the saga, and then you'll read the
"Justin", "Kyle", "Summer Fun", "School Days", "Summer on the
Beach", "College Daze", and "Boyhood's End" segments, too. You'll
laugh a lot, and you'll cry some. Most of the tears will be "happy
tears". You'll feel so good about yourself, it'll be hard to believe.
On our Stories page, we’ll hook you up with Brew's full saga and
other stories, but we really want you to read Brew's story first. It's
Our parents and other adult friends
Our parents, and Trey's grandfather, have accepted us as gay boys. For some of
the parents it took a while, but they're all very supportive of us now. We're
especially grateful to "Pops" (Trey's grandfather) for allowing us to constantly
invade his home, which we call Headquarters. We also call it 'the house that love
built'. We love you, Pops. Trey lives with his grandfather, very close to Trey's
Other adults, including: Brew and his partner in Florida; Monte and his partner and
two honorary sons in Washington; Geoff in Western Australia; Csaba in Hungary;
Phillip in Canada; sookoolguy (who sent us the .pdf files); fiction writers, including
but not limited to, Drake Hunter, Dewey, Sequoyah, Don Hanratty, and others who
have positively influenced our lives and have given us advice and support. You know
who you are, and we thank all of you.
The students, faculty, and staff at our school
We thank all of you for supporting us in our efforts to make sexual orientation a non-
issue at our school. You're responsible for great achievements.
If Generation Y students everywhere are like our students, we're convinced that
Generation Z will be raised to be tolerant non-bigots.
The E-mail groups
When we started our group in January 2003, we didn't foresee that the idea would
spread. It first spread to other schools in our area, and then across the country and
to other countries. We thank all leaders who have started groups in your schools.
You've told us about your progress and the many ways you’re helping your
correspondents. You've told us a lot of happy stories and some sad ones. We
appreciate what you're doing.
Pedro Zamora (1972-1994)
We were four to eight years old when Pedro died, but we remember him from
reruns after that of MTV's The Real World 3: San Francisco. He was diagnosed as
HIV positive in 1989, and from then until his death at the age of twenty-two he
dedicated himself to educating high school and college students about the realities
of AIDS, and about its prevention. He even spoke to Congress, and President
Clinton honored Pedro on the day of his death, November 11, 1994.
