    Building on what you just stated I think Kelly B. Douglas Sexuality and the Black Church: A Womanist Perspective is also a great book that speaks to the mis-interpretation of biblical scriptures when it comes to sexuality in the church. Btw I do both e-book and hard copy, but I lean more towards e-books.

    I loved Giovanni's Room. Huge Baldwin fan. I am always going to respect E. Lynn because
    "Invisible Life" helped me come to terms with my sexuality. So, I got mad respect for him.

    Love this thread! Good shit @scooter !!

    This book used to be one of my favorite popular fiction novels. It's sequel "Deception, Lies, & the Truth" wasn't all that great, but it does keep the narrative going and wraps up some of the plot lines.

    Here's a great collection of work from one of the first black gay writers who said whatever the hell he wanted to say.

    I enjoy novels, but to be honest I feel that some of the most daring work in African American and American literature comes from black gay poets. Yet, poets don't get the same kind of engagement and readership as novelists, for a whole host of reasons... So here's a full length collection ([Insert] Boy) and chapbook (Black Movie) of contemporary poetry written by my boy Danez.

    So y'all wanna find/agree on a book and talk about it soon?!

    Post a book that is on your reading list this winter or summer. I will start with the one I am reading its titled, Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South: An Oral History by E. Patrick Johnson. Its been on my reading list for quite sometime since grad school ended for me. I have picked it up and put it down over the past few months due to prior engagements. However, now that things have calmed down in life just a bit, I am going commit to reading it and its entirety. I am sure it will carry me well into the summer months, but you can read an excerpt of the book by clicking on the hyperlink above if you are trying to decide if want read the book. Peace and respect my brothers!
