Because of Her

Because of Her

For seventeen-year-old Tabitha «Tabby» Morton, life sucks. Big time. Forced to move to London thanks to her father’s new job, she has to leave her friends, school, and, most importantly, her girlfriend Amy, far behind. To make matters worse, Tabby’s parents enroll her in the exclusive Queen Victoria Independent School for Girls, hoping that it will finally make a lady of her.

But Tabby has other ideas.

Loathing her new school, Tabby fights against everything and everyone, causing relations with her parents to hit rock bottom. But when the beautiful and beguiling Eden Palmer walks into her classroom one day and catches her eye, Tabby begins to wonder if life there might not be so bad after all.

When Amy drops a bombshell about their relationship following a disastrous visit, Tabby starts to see the need for new direction in her life. Fighting her own personal battles, Eden brings the possibility of change for them both. Gradually, Tabby starts to turn her life around—and it’s all because of her.

Coming Out Spiritually

The Next Step


Coming Out Spiritually is structured by author Christian de la Huerta’s idea that gay people have traditionally assumed 10 spiritual roles or archetypes, and continue to assume them today. These include, among others, «creator of beauty,» «mediator,» «shaman,» and «healer.» This understanding of gay people’s spirituality draws on a number of religious traditions, including Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Sufism, and Taoism. After establishing his theoretical understanding of gay spirituality, de la Huerta suggests spiritual practices (ranging from meditation to healing to Sufi dancing) that can help readers achieve greater spiritual integrity. Perhaps the most interesting passages in the book consider how sex itself can express spiritual devotion. «When we learn to reunite sex and Spirit in our lives, we will experience change and healing beyond our wildest dreams,» de la Huerta writes. Coming Out Spiritually describes a mode of spirituality that has previously been explored in the work of Andrew Harvey and Matthew Fox, among others. Christian de la Huerta is equally passionate, and his message–that the coming-out process, when understood in spiritual terms, never ends–is an important one. This book may be a bit confusing to gay people just beginning to come out. (Like Harvey and Fox, de la Huerta sometimes uses jargon that obscures his arguments.) For gay people who have a pretty good sense of who they are, however, Coming Out Spiritually can be an important resource for continuing the process of learning to live honestly with their desires. –Michael Joseph Gross

Eye to Eye

Portraits of Lesbians

Die Frauen auf diesen Portraits waren einige der ersten Lesben, die ich je zu Gesicht bekam, und dieses Buch fühlt sich an wie ein verlorenes Familienalbum… Alison Bechdel

Eye to Eye

In 1979, JEB self-published her first book, Eye to Eye: Portraits of Lesbians. In a work that was revolutionary for its era, JEB made photographs of lesbians from different ages and backgrounds in their everyday lives—working, playing, raising families, and striving to remake their worlds. The photographs were accompanied by writings from acclaimed authors including Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Joan Nestle, and others. Various women pictured in the book also shared their personal stories. Eye to Eye signaled a radical new way of seeing—moving lesbian lives from the margins to the center, and reversing a history of invisibility. More than just a book, it was an affirmation of the existence of lesbians that helped to propel a political movement. Reprinted for the first time in forty years, Eye to Eye is a faithful reproduction of a work that still resonates today. This edition features additional essays from artist and writer Tee Corinne, former World Cup soccer player Lori Lindsey, and photographer Lola Flash.

Gay & Lesbian Theologies

Repetitions With Critical Difference


Gay and lesbian theology has been one of the most distinctive voices to have emerged in Christian theology in the last 30 years. It has placed lesbian and gay experience at the heart of the theological process. Elizabeth Stuart, one of the most prominent theologians in this field, presents a critical survey of gay and lesbian theology. She charts the development of gay and lesbian theology from an early apologetic phase, to a more confident liberationist outlook which owed much to Latin American liberation theology and feminist theology, and finally to its current wrestling with queer theory.

How It Feels to Have a Gay or Lesbian Parent

How It Feels to Have a Gay or Lesbian Parent

In their own words, children of different ages talk about how and when they learned of their gay or lesbian parent’s sexual orientation and the effect it has had on them.

«People don’t even seem to try to understand; they just get scared and confused and act out of hate because something is different.»

Let Our Voices Be Heard!

Christian Lesbians In Europe Telling Their Stories


In this European anthology you will find articles, biographical stories, poems, prayers, paintings, illustrations and photos involving 95 Christian lesbians from 26 European countries. The women live in Austria, Belarus, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, the Republic of Moldova, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Ukraine. They represent experiences from different Christian Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Anglican, Protestant, Lutheran, Reformed, Free Church, Jehovah’s Witness and Mormon church settings. The main focus is on living as lesbian and Christian! There are many books which tell the stories of lesbians or of Christians, but not many where this combination is heard. The women tell about their experiences with family, society, church, God, faith, doubt – and our own search for identity and belonging. The stories express despair, happiness, rage, gratitude, and unyielding optimism and trust. Trust in God – not necessarily in the church(es); sometimes quite the opposite. Some have left their churches and some are in the very centre of theirs, sitting in the church pews, taking part in Holy Communion. Some even stand in the pulpit and give the bread and wine. Each one of them has chosen her own way of living with faith and sexuality. One decided that she felt closer to Buddhism, while another chose a «different» and – to many Christian socialised lesbians – unexpected road: conversion to Islam.

The presentation of each of the 26 European countries starts with a country report which gives background information about the situation for lesbians (and gays) within society and churches. As an introduction to the whole you will find an article with thoughts about a lesbian feminist theology, emphasising the importance of telling and listening to biographical stories, and showing that theology is about the lives and faith of the people and their experiences with God. This is also illustrated in two sermons written and given in the Open Church Group for lesbians and gays in Norway.

In this book each woman speaks for herself. The stories are many and diverse and do not all reflect the opinions of the editor, the other co-workers and/or the European Forum. What is important is that this book is a place where the women are allowed to express their thoughts and tell their stories. Thus, the book is neither supposed to be a “neutral” academic study nor a literary masterpiece, but an exciting collection of personal witnesses.

My Husband Is Gay

A Woman’s Guide to Surviving the Crisis


Carol Grever and her husband, Jim, were high school sweethearts who married in their early twenties. Thirty years and two children later, Jim announced to his wife that he was homosexual. A fundamentalist Christian, he had been leading a double life for years. In an effort to process her pain and confusion, Carol Grever sought out other heterosexual women, of all ages, ethnicities, and educational backgrounds, who were married to gay men. The stories she uncovered examine these women’s coping strategies and form the basis of this manual for healing.

Revolutionary Voices

A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology

Revolutionary Voices

This groundbreaking, multicultural collection of stories by the queer and young should be required reading for every jaded adult–teachers, parents, politicians–and anyone who fears for the future of our country. In fact, 22-year-old editor Amy Sonnie should run for Congress. Her introduction to this touching, funny, and sometimes sad anthology is smarter and more thoughtful than any political rhetoric this old queer has heard lately. While the work is wildly diverse (one of my favorites involves a mother who bakes a cake to help her queer daughter celebrate Ellen DeGeneres’s coming-out), all of it speaks to the isolation and fear of being queer and young. A boy lies awake at night practicing to be more masculine. An intersexed gay boy comes out to his high school. A butch girl tells of years of daily bashing. Fear, though, is not the overriding emotional tone to this collection. The contributors exhibit a belief in themselves, a well-placed youthful confidence that speaks as loudly as the most poignant writing. Their determination to survive and thrive despite a homophobic society comes through loud and clear. It’s the perfect antidote to adult cynicism about youth. —

The Celluloid Closet

Homosexuality in the Movies


When Vito Russo published the first edition of The Celluloid Closet in 1981, there was little question that it was a groundbreaking book. Today it is still one of the most informative and provocative books written about gay people and popular culture. By examining the images of homosexuality and gender variance in Hollywood films from the 1920s to the present, Russo traced a history not only of how gay men and lesbians had been erased or demonized in movies but in all of American culture as well. Chronicling the depictions of gay people such as the «sissy» roles of Edward Everett Horton and Franklin Pangborn in 1930s comedies or predatory lesbians in 1950s dramas (see Lauren Bacall in Young Man with a Horn and Barbara Stanwyck in Walk on the Wild Side), Russo details how homophobic stereotypes have both reflected and perpetrated the oppression of gay people. In the revised edition, published a year before his death in 1990, Russo added information on the new wave of independent and gay-produced films–The Times of Harvey Milk, Desert Hearts, Buddies–that emerged during the 1980s. –Michael Bronski

The Straight Girl’s Guide to Sleeping with Chicks


«You can’t swing a dead cat at a bridal shower without hitting a straight chick who’s slept with another woman, who’s thought about it, or who’s ready to make the move as soon as someone breaks out the booze.»

Drawing on personal experience and hundreds of interviews with straight girls who’ve slept with lesbians, straight girls who’ve slept with straight girls, lesbians who’ve slept with straight girls, and straight girls who’ve done both or neither, Sincero covers the A to Z of the experience including:

  • Obtaining a visitor’s pass to the girls-only club
  • The super-huge importance of sticking your hand down your pants
  • The straight girl’s starter kit — from nail clippers to cocktails to get her in the mood
  • «Gettin› Some 101» — positions, techniques, and instructional photos
  • «And Boy Makes Three!» — how to have a threesome that’s fun for all
  • Suggestions for further viewing and reading and much, much more

Packed with expertly toned advice that is at once laugh-out-loud hilarious and fundamentally practical, «The Straight Girl’s Guide to Sleeping with Chicks» is ideal for any woman looking to spice things up with a boyfriend, break the ice with a best friend, or simply add a few just-in-case items to her sexual menu.

The Word Is Out

Daily Reflections on the Bible for Lesbians and Gay Men


This lively collection of 365 meditations explodes fundamentalist misconceptions of the Bible’s stance on homosexuality and offers inspiration to lesbian and gay Christians. Richly written, evocative, and often surprising, this book reinterprets the Scriptures to offer meditations comprised of a brief Bible selection, insightful words of reflection, and a short prayer/affirmation. (Ingram)

Ich mag dieses Buch, es ist inspirierend und immer wieder ein «Augenöffner». Schade, dass es so etwas nicht in Deutsch gibt. Ich benutze dieses Büchlein gerne als Grundlage für eine lesbischwule Andacht, wie andere die aktuelle Tageslosung verwenden.

Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs.-Christians Debate


As a teenager and young man, Justin Lee felt deeply torn. Nicknamed «God Boy» by his peers, he knew that he was called to a life in the evangelical Christian ministry. But Lee harbored a secret: He also knew that he was gay. In this groundbreaking book, Lee recalls the events–his coming out to his parents, his experiences with the «ex-gay» movement, and his in-depth study of the Bible–that led him, eventually, to self-acceptance. But more than just a memoir, TORN provides insightful, practical guidance for all committed Christians who wonder how to relate to gay friends or family members–or who struggle with their own sexuality. Convinced that «in a culture that sees gays and Christians as enemies, gay Christians are in a unique position to bring peace,» Lee demonstrates that people of faith on both sides of the debate can respect, learn from, and love one another.

Christians and the LGBT Question

UNFAIR by John Shore

Shore is one of America’s leading Christian writers on the subject of gay people and Christianity. His essays are widely credited with being central to the sea change in Christian thinking that has occurred on this issue in recent years. UNFAIR offers the best of Shore’s writings on homosexuality and Christians/Christianity, along with heart-wrenching but ultimately inspiring letters from gay people telling what it’s like to grow up, and live today, both gay and Christian. The book’s opening essay, «Taking God at His Word: The Bible and Homosexuality,» is a must-read for anyone seeking clarity on the relationship between the Bible, Christianity, and LGBT people. If you read only one book on this subject, make it this one. (This is the revised and updated edition of Shore’s book, «UNFAIR: Why the ‹Christian› View of Gays Doesn’t Work.»)

What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality

What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality

Believing that the translation of the Bible they use consists of the inerrant word of God, some Christians cite a handful of passages to justify their condemnation of homosexuality. But historical biblical scholarship holds that these believers› conception of inerrancy is naively based, for English versions of the originally Hebrew and Greek scriptures are rife with problematic translations. Some scholars further maintain that the supposedly antihomosexual passages are not blanket condemnations of homosexual persons and acts. Indeed, in some cases, these verses aren’t about homosexuality at all; they meant quite different things to those for whom they were first written, peoples whose social conceptions of sexuality were vastly different from ours. Helminiak provides cogent, accessible precis of these revisionist findings on the Bible’s six major passages and few minor references that seem to denounce homosexuality. The Bible does not condemn gay sex as we understand it today, he concludes; those who seek to know outright if gay or lesbian sex is good or evil . . . will have to look elsewhere for an answer. An extremely valuable contribution to popular gay and biblical studies.

When I Knew


When I Knew is a collection of smart, hilarious, and often poignant stories about that revelation for all gay men and women: when they first knew. In this gorgeously illustrated, cleverly designed, and colorful book, acclaimed fashion and celeb-rity photographer Robert Trachtenberg brings humor and style to the EUREKA! moments of more than eighty contributors, including B.

Readers will fall in love with these anecdotes, from the seven-year-old who looked under the television set to sneak a peek under Tarzan’s loincloth, to the inquisitive grandmother who asked her grandson, «You don’t like a girl to get married? You prefer a boy?», to the courageous field trip participant who passed up the universal favorite burger-and-fry combo in favor of the fruit plate with cottage cheese.

Filled with original art by New Yorker illustrator Tom Bachtell, historical images, and personal photographs from the contributors, When I Knew is a vibrant and witty celebration of that sometimes glorious, sometimes painful, but always captivating moment when everything suddenly makes sense.
