Book Description :

Daniel Mattson once believed he was gay. Raised in a Christian family, and aware of attractions to other boys at age six, Mattson's life was marked by constant turmoil between his faith in God and his sexual attractions. Finding the conflict between his sexual desires and the teachings of his church too great, he assumed he was gay, turned his back on God, and began a relationship with another man. Yet freedom and happiness remained elusive until he discovered Christ and his true identity. In this frank memoir, Mattson chronicles his journey to and from a gay identity, finding peace in his true identity, as a man, made in the image and likeness of God. Part autobiography, part philosophy of life, and part a practical guide in living chastely, the book draws lessons from Mattson's search for inner freedom and integrity, sharing wisdom from his failures and successes. His lifelong search for happiness and peace comes full circle in his realization that, above all else, what is true about him is that he is a beloved son of God, loved into existence by God, created for happiness in this life and the next. Mattson's book is for anyone who has ever wondered who he is, why he is here, and, in the face of suffering, where to find joy, happiness, and the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Book Description :

As does the soul of a gay, celibate Christian, the book Birds, Bees, and Me makes its home at the junction of spirituality and sexuality. From adolescence on, navigating the confusion of these topics with the ambiguity of a queer sort of Christianity is both awkward and heart-wrenchingly lonely. Birds, Bees, and Me is here to provide snapshots throughout the journey of one Christian boy who found himself exclusively attracted to other men. The narrative moves forward and backward through the speaker's life in order to paint a picture of the shattered pieces of himself that must be picked up throughout the years. Suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, and self-hatred all ensue cyclically with each new discovery and paradigm shift as the author begins to chase after intimacy, identity, and sexuality in ways that his faith had previously restricted. But with each step there is also an invigorated readiness which braces for the cold, misunderstanding world that he and his sexuality must learn to flourish in.

Book Description :

This comprehensive reader brings a social science perspective to an area hitherto dominated by the humanities. Through it, students will be able to follow the story of how sociology has come to engage with gay and lesbian issues from the 1950s to the present, from the earliest research on the underground worlds of gay men to the emergence of queer theory in the 1990s. Bringing together classic readings and the best work of younger scholars from all parts of the English-speaking world, this reader will be an invaluable resource for courses at undergraduate and graduate level in all areas of the sociology of sexuality and gender. Separate sections cover: * theoretical foundations * identity and community making * institutions and social change * challenges for the future. Each section begins with an introduction giving readers a brief guide to the readings in that section, contextualises them and relates them to one another and the book ends with an afterword by Ken Plummer summing up the present state of play and looking forward to the future.

Book Description :

In the post civil-rights era, youth activism has emerged to address the ways in which the social categories that young people occupy have been explicitly politicized. This dissertation draws upon comparative fieldwork, textual analysis, and in-depth interviews with youth activists working in two non-profit organizations in Oakland, California. Specifically, I explore how teenagers of color create individual and collective political identities and participate in social change in the twenty-first century. Recent attacks on affirmative action, the increasing war on drugs, and tightening measures against gangs have shaped the formation of youth identity in the last decade. This research examines how youth organize and create activist identities in light of these developments. Additionally, this work examines dominant representations of activism in U.S. public discourse that influence how people think of themselves as activists. This idealized cultural image of an activist is based on the civil rights leaders, struggles, and participants in previous social movements. This idealized definition of activism and the iconic status of previous activists dominate the activities that youth participate in. The data suggests that contemporary youth activists look up to these leaders and incorporate their teachings into their resistance strategies, organizing tools, and political identities as activists. Although the organizations differ in both their approaches and individual staff expectations, youth at the two organizations construct similar activist identities. Youth activist identities are a combination of what they learn at each organization, the idealized cultural image of activism, and their status as youth who experience both the benefits of civil rights and the backlash against those same rights. In particular, they articulate the kinds of activism in which they are involved--a micro approach based on talking to those closest to them: friends, family, and peers.

Book Description :

The gay community has experienced the greatest impact of AIDS in New Zealand. Through the two decades since the HIV epidemic struck here, gay and bisexual men have had to come to terms with death: either their own or that of their friends and loved ones. They have had to reinvent sexual practice and learn to keep themselves and their partners safe. This book tells the story of that journey. It aims to give the reader an overview of gay men's lives in the era of AIDS, their sexual practices and the strategies they have used in dealing with the epidemic. It uses data, both qualitative and quantitative, gathered by the author and other researchers from a range of projects that investigate the hard facts about gay men's response to the virus as well as their personal stories.

Book Description :

"This dissertation examines the importance of performed and embodied rhetorics to Cherokee survival and resistance and argues for performance as a primary site of Native cultural continuance and rhetorical production. Two historiographic studies are central to making this argument. The first, Indian In The Archive: Performance Historiography as Cherokee Ghost Dance (Chapter Three) looks to the Cherokee Ghost Dance and the Redbird Smith movement as models for radical, decolonial, performative historiography. With a particular focus on recovering a history of nineteenth century Cherokee theatre, this chapter focuses on how archives are and can be used by Cherokee people to re-establish dormant and/or obscured Cherokee performance traditions and histories. The second study, On The Wings Of Wadaduga: Towards the Performance of Two-Spirit Critiques (Chapter Four) focuses on revising both archived and embodied records through the development of an historiographic performance with Two-Spirit, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer-identified Cherokees. This chapter examines performance as historiography and argues for performance as a means to revise both archival and embodied cultural memories. Both studies are grounded in the methodological concepts of [special characters omitted] (duyuk'ta, "balance") and [special characters omitted] (gadugi, "cooperative labor") as a way of conceiving decolonial scholarship, practice, and pedagogy within the field of rhetoric and composition"--Abstract.
