Taboo Village: A Perspective On Being Gay In Black America
To Be An African American is said to be one of the most difficult challenges, that lay in living in America. At the same time, being gay or lesbian has been considered to be an issue of controversy in society and religion. Being an open and self affirming African American homosexual man or woman, in many ways, challenges the notion that you cannot live without overcoming certain struggles that exist in society, religion, family and self. This book seeks to address those issues and affirm all readers. Written in honesty and with a conversational approach, this book is a tool for those who are heterosexual, gay, lesbian, transgendered, allied or simply seek a better understanding of sexuality to challenge the way that society looks at african american homosexuals and how the african american community deals with homosexuality, as Sampson shares personal stories and insights on what it means to be gay in black america.
