Event Details

An Intimate Book Talk with Author Paul Schulte

Homophobia puts many lesbian, gay and bisexual youth at risk for suicide, chemical abuse, dropping out of school, verbal and physical abuse, homelessness, prostitution, HIV infection, and psychosocial developmental delays.

This book discusses how we can prevent young adults from having to endure this path without opting out of life — literally and figuratively. It is about how gay and bisexual adult men in recovery (those noble weary hearts that have seen so much death and discrimination) can heal from the scars of early abuse, HIV/AIDS trauma, stigmatization, victimization, and discrimination. Moreover, it addresses ways that they can deal with the homophobia of family, society, and church as well as their own internalized homophobia.

It tells the stories of young men and women today (gay or bisexual and white, Latino and African American) in their twenties and thirties who are dealing with these same issues in a freer and more accepting environment but who still deal with PTSD, crystal meth addiction, alienation from the self and the family, and an absence of heroes or mentors to guide them through difficult times. This book is about how to stay clean from substance abuse as moral, psychological, physical and childhood wounds are healed.
