Ges Misérables or ges misérables (pronounced ‘Gay Miz-eh-rahb’) is the ‘Gay Misery’ or mournful depression occasionally experienced with gays faced by overwhelming complexity and societal opposition to their lifestyle ‘choice’. Unbeknownst to most heterosexuals, it requires tremendous psychic energy to even roll out of bed and face a world that is often violently hostile to the way a person thinks, speaks, dresses, walks, votes, emotes and makes love.
Julian was reconciled to his lifestyle choice and seldom experienced ges misérables. Julian’s lover James was no so fortunate however, and often knew despondent freefall into the vast royal blue abyss of the Ges Misérables.
