"For Colored Boys" reaches out to Gay Men of Color

I'm so excited about the new book "For Colored Boys," a collection of stories from many LGBT journalists, bloggers, activists, actors and writers of color. American broadcaster and author Keith Boykin has gathered the voices of these amazing people as a way to reach to many of our gay men of color.

Here's more:

The new book, For Colored Boys, addresses longstanding issues of sexual abuse, suicide, HIV/AIDS, racism, and homophobia in the African American and Latino communities, and more specifically among young gay men of color. The book tells stories of real people coming of age, coming out, dealing with religion and spirituality, seeking love and relationships, finding their own identity in or out of the LGBT community, and creating their own sense of political empowerment.

This collection includes writers who are African American, Latino, Asian American, British, and Jamaican. Their ages span over five decades from young to old, and they represent all parts of the country and a wide cross-section of occupations, including students, published authors, recording artists, reality TV stars, military veterans, doctors, and lawyers.
Please check out the website and get the book. I truly hope these stories really motivate and inspire our community to be gay and proud.
