There have been numerous guests at the B&B over the years. We can't show them all here, but below are some of the special guests, (or friends), who make regular repeat appearances and can be counted on to show up every now & then:

Birthplace: Greenville, South Carolina
Jeff's visits to the B&B always seem to shake things up, but the guys are usually too transfixed by his hairy pecs to complain. In Jeff’s first stay at the B&B, he was a team-mate on Brad's baseball team. Unlike Brad, though, Jeff was out & proud, the only pro-baseball player in the minor or major leagues to be so brave. He paid the price in his career though, ultimately being traded from team to team due to the homophobia of the baseball world, despite his being a very talented player. On a later visit to the B&B, he revealed he is hiv+, and more recently, he left the baseball world due to a knee injury, (unrelated to his hiv status, which appears to be under control). He recently returned to the B&B yet again, and has taken up residence while pursuing his new career, as a nurse, at nearby Huntington Hospital. And shaking things up more than ever, after a catastrophic dalliance with fellow resident Matt!

Birthplace: Bronx, New York
Delia lives down the street from the B&B, and met the guys due to her prior friendship with Richard. As it turns out, she’s a big baseball fan, and can often be found at Brad’s home games, (she’s a season ticketholder for the Wolves). Delia also happens to live in the same apartment house as Steve Brewer, another recurring character, who starred in his own comic strip, An Angel’s Story, (in which Delia was a regular character). Delia was also a regular character in Manic Music, another comic strip, (about the music industry), making her a well-traveled character, to say the least!

Birthplace: Seattle, Washington

Andrew arrived at the B&B with his recently adopted baby son Heath, in the wake of a nasty break-up with his partner William. After an intense, but relatively brief relationship with Richard, Andrew reconciled with William. Conveniently, Andrew was able to purchase the house right next door to the B&B, and he & William & Heath currently live there, often stopping in to see their friends at the B&B. (Especially Brad, who has become exceptionally close friends with Heath).

Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York
Love him or hate him, the man knows how to make an impression! Formerly a New York City fireman, Nick left that profession in the aftermath of September 11th, 2001, and relocated out on Long Island for several stays at Kyle’s B&B. Brash, outspoken, and unafraid to share his opinion on just about anything, Nick alienated some of the B&B guys with his scathing critiques of gay culture and body-fascism. Currently, he’s returned to his first love, fixing cars, and owns an auto-repair shop in East Northport, (where he also now resides), only 10 minutes away from the B&B.
