Various acts of violence involving assault, torture, harassment, and sometimes even murder, have been carried out against members of the LGBT community. Homosexuals, bisexuals and transgender people have also faced constant discrimination in their everyday lives on the basis of their sexual orientation. This discrimination against members of the LGBT community stems from religious beliefs, political views, bias or even internal fear. <br /> <br />This book depicts the history of Gay Rights Movement and several true accounts of violated men and women, <b>includes the most recent shootings at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.</b><br /><hr /><br />"This subject can be very touchy for some. I respect RJ for writing a book on the LGBT!!!. The subject of lesbian's or gays however is not touchy to me. My daughter is a lesbian. Reading this book educated me into understanding how far back the hate goes!! It's a very educational read for those of us that are caring enough to want to understand. It's a sad world that we live in. Hate crimes against LGBT is a serious problem all around the world!!! Thank you RJ for writing such a wonderful book!!!! A must read!!!!" - <b>Amanda</b><br /><hr /><br />"A very informative book on the subject of the LGBT community. The book explains the trials and tribulations that many have had to endure. Many have been attacked and many have faced unbelievable discrimination, all because they wanted to be who they are. The book contains factual stories of many of the cases. This is a great book to read, many that can't understand what many go through, will be informed." - <b>M Fabregas</b>

A l’âge de 25 ans, je dois accepter une évidence : je suis homosexuel. Le choc est brutal, violent. Mon monde s’écroule. Tout ce que j’avais refoulé durant mon adolescence remonte à la surface comme une boue nauséabonde. Ce qui peut ressembler à une épreuve insurmontable s’avère être le point de départ d’un grand voyage intérieur dans les profondeurs de l’inconscient. Je découvre un univers où la morale humaine n’a plus cours, les repères habituels sont invalidés, les croyances religieuses sont mises à néant.Cette odyssée va me conduire à relier la psychothérapie et la spiritualité sur mon chemin de guérison. Je finirai par découvrir que le virus psychique qui me ronge est la culpabilité, graine semée dans un passé très lointain. Ma libération passera par le pardon. Ce témoignage s’adresse aussi bien aux personnes qui vivent un conflit entre leur orientation sexuelle et leur spiritualité qu’à celles qui sont en proie aux doutes, aux questionnements et aux souffrances sur leur chemin d’individuation.Olivier Kharon est psychothérapeute gestaltiste en Belgique.<br />Il accompagne maintenant des hommes et des femmes sur leur chemin de vie.

In his memoir, <i>Coming Out To Play</i>, Robbie Rogers told the story of his incredible journey from terrified teenager to a trailblazing out and proud professional soccer player for the L.A. Galaxy. Since it was published, he has recieved letters from countless readers from all walks of life, all across the world, telling him how he has given them hope and that after reading his story, they felt compelled to share their own.<br /><br /><i>RE: Coming Out To Play</i> is a collection of ten of these stories. They show both the acceptance and love that so many recieve as they come out, but also that there are many who still struggle with the fear that they will be rejected if they reveal the truth about themselves. This is why Rogers has collected these letters: to show those suffering in silence that they are not alone.

<div>This is the riveting tale of two brave nonconformists whose dramatic lives open up new perspectives on the history of the twentieth century. Thomas Mann’s two eldest children, Erika and Klaus, were unconventional, rebellious, and fiercely devoted to each other. Empowered by their close bond, they espoused vehemently anti-Nazi views in a Europe swept up in fascism and were openly, even defiantly, gay in an age of secrecy and repression. In 1936, they fled to the United States and chose New York as their new adopted home. From the start, the two were embroiled by the literary and intellectual life, political turmoil, and shifting sexual mores of their times. Andrea Weiss engages their struggles, their friendships (Maurice Wertheim and Annemarie Schwarzenbach, among them), and their liaisons, as the siblings try to adapt to their new lives, all while introducing their work to an American audience for the first time.</div><br /><br />

Aos 16 anos me assumi homossexual para os meus pais e eles não aceitaram. Eu fiquei sem ter onde morar. Fui mendigo por semanas, catei latinha para sobreviver. Sem família e sem ninguém. Sofrendo agreçoes homofóbicas nas ruas e vielas. <br /><br />E após passar por diversas dificuldades e sofrimento no contexto familiar e social, espelha-se na ave fênix, renascendo das cinzas em direção de ao seu grande amor.<br /><br />Não imaginava que nesse caminho encontraria obstáculos deixando, até, de frente com a morte.<br /><br />Uma historia ligando dois países amigos, Brasil e Peru, ao mesmo tempo unindo dois corações que em meio a grande turbulência, lutavam para não perder esse grande sentimento.<br /><br />Enfim, uma história cheia de aventura, emoção, lágrima, prazer, superação e distância

<div><b>"Get off your phone and read Jess Kimball Leslie's funny book!"<br />---Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's <i>Watch What Happens Live<br /></i></b> <em><br /></em><b>I LOVE MY COMPUTER BECAUSE MY FRIENDS LIVE IN IT is a hilarious memoir of growing up in the early days of the Internet and celebrating technology's role in our lives.</b><em><br /><br /></em>Coming of age in suburban Connecticut in the late '80s and early '90s, Jess Kimball Leslie looked to the nascent Internet to find the tribes she couldn't find IRL: fellow Bette Midler fans; women who seemed impossibly sure of their sexuality; interns trudging through similarly soul-crushing media jobs. Through effortlessly comedic storytelling and looks at tech through the ages (with photos!), Jess takes you on a journey through the hilarious times that technology and the Internet changed her life.<br /><br />From accounts of the lawless chat rooms of early AOL to the perpetual high school reunions that are modern-day Facebook and Instagram, Jess's essays paint a clear picture: That each of us has a much more twisted, meaningful, emotional relationship with the online world than we realize or let on. </div>
