"He Do the Gay Man in Different Voices" a collection of poetry by author Stephen S. Mills, published by tiny Sibling Rivalry Press of Alexander, Ark. has beat out titles by some of the top publishers in the genre — including Yale University Press, the University of Pittsburgh Press and a collection by Richard Blanco, who read at President Obama's inauguration in January — to win the 2013 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Poetry. The collection was published by Sibling Rivalry Press in March 2012.

The Lambda Literary Awards are awarded each year by the Lambda Literary Foundation of New York, and honor those works that explore gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender themes. Previous winners include John Irving, Mark Doty, Augusten Burroughs, and David Sedaris.

In a news release, Sibling Rivalry Press publisher Bryan Borland, who started the press three years ago in a spare bedroom, said: “Stephen personifies the mission of Sibling Rivalry Press, which is to publish work that disturbs and enraptures. We’re equally proud to represent Arkansas on a national level. We’re in the midst of a creative renaissance in the state, and we’re happy that Sibling Rivalry Press is part of that.”

    Trying to compare Donald Trump's reaction to the Russia investigation with Bill Clinton's dealings with Kenneth Starr should be a non-starter if the facts mattered. But these days — and to the New York Times — it ain't necessarily so.
