Throughout history, there have been many famous people with gay brothers.
The Bible fails to mention that Moses had a gay sibling, Stan, though his handiwork did make it into the final draft in an entirely different form. That “burning bush?”
History’s first attempt at manscaping, deemed too graphic for Sunday School and changed to a more literal interpretation of fire and branches.
Cleopatra’s ’mo bro is documented in several pyramid paintings and credited with single-handedly creating her signature cornrows and dramatic eye makeup.
A little more recently, Abraham Lincoln’s separated-at-birth conjoined twin, Gabe, is known to have been well into the second act of his cabaret show next door to Ford’s Theatre the night the President was shot. Sadly, government protocol prevented Gabe Lincoln from attending the funeral in his signature drag persona, Frida Slaves.
So, with all these real-life stories of queer siblings, it’s no wonder it’s such a great theme to explore in a novel. Everyone’s heard of Giacomo Casanova, the world’s most famous seducer of women this side of Bill Clinton. But even Casanova had a handsome gay brother who charmed the men as easily as Giacomo dazzled the ladies.
Fortunately, he left behind his “memoirs,” which were “translated” from Italian to English by gay writer Marten Weber. (We hope you can read between the quotation marks to understand that this is a very creative work of fiction.)
Whether you love historical novels, gay erotica or heart-stopping adventure, you’re sure to enjoy Bernedetto Casanova: The Memoirs, a novel that deftly combines all three genres into one often-hilarious page-turner.
And now that the literary world is ready to embrace the concept of famous gay siblings taking center stage, it’s only a matter of time before Americans are ready for the shocking revelations of our own upcoming biography, Osama bin Dover: Out of the Closet, Out of My Brother’s Shadow.
