Gay Relationships in 1788, Paris, FR – Marceau #histfic #gay

by on Oct.25, 2013, under Gay

Gay relationships carried on quietly in situations where one partner was in a marriage with children — especially in centuries past. Guillaume, my gay character in Marceau, knew how typical it was to love a married man who is quite powerful financially and politically. Guillaume knew his place and his role in Maurice’s life and played it beautifully. Guillaume is a theatre actor who loved to dress up as a woman. Only in Chapter One, you see him walk into Maurice’s bain (bath) with his hair up, wearing his favorite rouge and showing a bit of cleavage. You know I could have revved up that scene more intimately but I held back…knowing this book may end up in a physical format some day. You also see him blow a kiss at Maurice during a toast presentation at the de Roche dinner. Guillaume plays a very strong companion role in this novel throughout. He is my favorite character!
