It's hop time! In honor of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, 250+ m/m authors, reviewers and publishers have come together in an attempt to bring about awareness of homophobic discrimination. Please stop by the Hop Against Homophobia and check out all those blogs where you could win over 250 m/m and GLBTQ related prizes.
