Lawfully Wedded Husband
How My Gay Marriage Will Save the American Family
Joel Derfnero

“If, as Marshall McLuhan once taught us, the medium is the message, then Derfner’s medium—this lovely, discursive amalgamation of wit and smarts—is indeed his message about how to stay happy, sane, and honest in whatever situation one finds oneself in.”
—Philip Gambone, author of Travels in a Gay Nation: Portraits of LGBTQ Americans

Autobiography of My Hungers
Rigoberto González

“An unforgettable portrait of the artist as a young immigrant gay poet. These brief, passionate chapters are filled with rare courage, raw honesty, and the uncommon beauty of a life spent yearning for consolation and hope. Absolutely arresting.”
—Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire
