Did You Grow Up Gay in America? We Have a Book For You!

September 12, 2008

CRISIS: 40 Stories Revelaing the Personal, Social, and Religious Pain and Trauma of Growing Up Gay in America is a new book edited by openly gay entrepreneur Mitchell Gold with help from his sister-in-law Mandy Drucker.

Gold asked forty gay Americans to share their very personal answers to difficult questions like, "What is it like to be called an abomination by your religious leaders?" and "How do you feel about lying to everyone about whom you love?"

A wide swath of the gay community answered these questions, commenting on religion, family, schools, workplace and sin. Contributors varied far and wide, ranging from GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano, MTV Entertainment President Brian GradenDan Karslake, director of the award-winning documentary For The Bible Tells Me So, Democratic Congressman Barney Frank, Trevor Project Executive Director Charles Robbins, Oprah Winfrey's design guru Nate Berkus, and many more. Tennis legend Martina Navratilova provided the Forward to the collection of essays.
