The Q Guide to Soap Operas, now out, is a guide to all that is gay in the world of daytime serials. The book takes you behind the scenes for exclusive soap star interviews, inside scoop fun facts and tantalizing trivia.
Among the other titillating bits one will find are top 10 soap-divas and soap-hunk lists and why gay soap actors live in the daytime closet. There is also a chapter devoted to Thom Bierdz, one of the few gay actors ( if not the only gay thespian from a soap opera ) to come out of the closet. Incidentally, Bierdz will make an appearance Sept. 22 at The Leigh Gallery, 3306 N. Halsted.
The author of the book is Daniel R. Coleridge, a soap columnist for TVGuide.com .
