Gale Finally Has His Rise ‘n Shine Convention Fanbook.

Elke Kri, the organizer of the Rise ‘n Shine Convention, posted on Facebook that Gale picked up his fanbook.  The book was compiled by Sarah a (@sazzzzy) with fan-appreciation submissions.  Each member of the cast received one & Scott, gracious as usual, agreed to make sure Gale got his.

Gale Harold Has Cancelled His Appearance at Rise ‘n Shine Queer as Folk Convention.

We, here at Devotee, are beyond words.  I am afraid if I comment right now, I’ll say something I might regret.  I’ll just link you to the comment on the Rise ‘n Shine Facebook page.  Here is part of Gale Harold’s message:

… A wonderful work opportunity has only recently come my way and unfortunately the scheduling of that project does not allow me the time to come to Cologne and join you. This disappoints me just as much as I fear it will disappoint many of you. I hope you will all understand and forgive my absence…

Rise ‘n Shine Convention is Putting Together a Queer a Folk Fan Project

We were planning on doing a Gale Harold Appreciation Fan Book, but since the Rise ‘n Shine Convention has picked up our idea, we’ll just piggy back off of them.

Here is the information:

“Queer As Folk Book Project!

We are putting together 9 books for the convention – one for each actor so they can have a special memory of the convention.

What we’re asking is that you send personal messages, drawings, photos of you and your QAF buddies, photos of you helping promote Rise n Shine, pride events, and anything else you fancy sending!

You can send special messages even if you are not attending the convention! These books will then be compiled by Talia and Sarah, and then given to the actors at the convention.

Please send your messages, photos, and anything else you want included to:


and include which actor your message/photo is for in the subject line of the email. 

If you have something you wish to be placed in all 9 book, that is fine also, just mention that in your email!”

Gale Harold has signed the contract for the Rise’n Shine convention.

Thanks to Elke Kriebel who organizes the  Queer as Folk Rise’n Shine convention which will take place in Cologne next June, we are spreading the happy news that Gale Harold has signed the contract for the convention.  And so has Scott Lowell and Robert Gant. More info here
