Finally bussed to Savannah, Georgia, to live with her grandmother's cantankerous sister, Sookie. Through the enlightened eyes of a thirteen-year-old girl, the hilarity and insanity ensues.<br /><br />From the best-selling author of <i>A Faithful Son</i>, this rollicking romp of a ride does not disappoint.<br /><br /> <i>Aunt Sookie & Me: The Sordid Tale of a Scandalous Southern Belle</i> is irreverent, hilarious, and heartbreaking. All political correctness is buried alongside the dead corpse in the family vegetable garden in this riotous book. But don't let the folksy and fresh recipe fool you, Garvin serves up a big helping of reality, cutting through small-town bigotry and bias.

This is the unusual true story of two people in Texas who are separated by both time and space until they have an unlikely meeting which evolves into an extraordinary tale of love and dysfunction. <br /><br />Greg Brown was born in 1969 and knew that he was different from an early age. By 1977 he was humorously (and frightfully) able to identify the condition as being gay. The adventures and situations which follow due to his homosexuality are both dramatic and funny. But just as important are the situations he's introduced to regardless of his emerging sexuality. He was introduced to alcohol at age eleven by an older wealthy relative (which would influence him for years); is accidentally introduced to pornography by thirteen; is sent to Europe basically unsupervised at age fourteen and starts experiencing feelings of love for other men even though he can't tell anyone.<br /><br />This is a snapshot of a seemingly ordinary upper-middle-class American family of it's time. But it's not a frivolous story of coming out or of having privilege. It's a story of a boy hiding a secret and a family thinking they're doing everything right. Events that occur are Unintended Consequences of actions and inactions. <br /><br />Eventually, Greg's parents move to Taiwan for a job opportunity when Greg is eighteen and just entering Texas Tech in Lubbock. It's decided that he will come home after the first semester to take care of the family home near Dallas when his parents leave. What ensues for the next several years is a series of events, including a trip around the world, which leads him to meet Priscilla Davis, a highly dysfunctional lady thirty years his senior who has become known as one of the most infamous (and beautiful) women in Texas history. <br /><br />Priscilla Davis was the 36-year-old estranged wife of Cullen Davis in 1977 when the most famous murder case in Texas history against her husband was commencing. She accused her husband of being the shooter in their 19,000 square foot mansion in Ft. Worth in the summer of 1976 in which her boyfriend and daughter were murdered and Priscilla herself was shot. The subsequent trials lasted until 1979 and Cullen was acquitted of multiple charges, including murder. A movie title Texas Justice with Heather Locklear in 1995 told the story up until 1979. <br /><br />Priscilla moved to Dallas in 1981 with 3.5 million dollars to start a new life. Just at that time, Greg was entering his teenage years in Grand Prairie, a city five miles from Dallas. <br /><br />This book chronicles the parallel paths of Greg and Priscilla's lives before they meet. Priscilla's struggles are increasing as the years are going by and so are Greg's; but for different reasons. When the two do meet, even 28 years of time and space can't keep them apart.<br /><br />This story has many layers and dynamics. It's a story of drama and humor which most people and families experience at one time or another. But it also speaks to the human capacity to forgive and forge forward. <br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

<h1>What does the Bible really say about homosexuality?</h1><br /><br /><h2>Is it a sin to be gay or to be in a same-sex relationship? </h2><br /><br />Many people struggle with reconciling religion and homosexuality. You might have a gay friend or family member, or be gay yourself, and not know what God would say about your sexuality. You might have been told that being gay is a terrible sin, and some verses from the Bible might even have been used to justify this claim.<br /><br /><h2> Find out which passages are said to refer to being gay and gay relationships</h2><br /><br />Being raised in Christian households, we were often told that the Bible condemns homosexuality. We struggled with these issues ourselves for a long time, and eventually decided to research the Bible ourselves and find out exactly what it says about homosexuality. All of the passages that are often used against homosexuality in the Bible are discussed in this book.<br /><br /><h2>Find ways to reconcile being gay and Christian</h2><br /><br />This short book is packed with information about how Biblical scholars and religious leaders have reconciled homosexuality and religion, including:<br /><b>- What Jesus had to say about homosexuality</b><br /><b>- Same-sex relationships in the Bible</b><br /><b>- How many churches are changing their stances and teachings about homosexuality</b><br /><br /><h2>About the authors</h2><br /><br /><b>Grant Andrews</b> is currently completing his PhD at the University of the Western Cape, with a focus on fatherhood and masculinities. He lectures in the English Department and has written extensively on self-actualization and self-exploration.<br /><b>Malan van der Walt</b> is a student program coordinator at the University of Stellenbosch, working with young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in order to promote HIV prevention and to advocate for equality. He is continuing his postgraduate studies in psychology with a focus on gender and sexuality. He conducts counselling sessions and runs support groups with young gay people.<br /><br /><h2>If you need a fresh perspective on your faith and sexuality, this book is for you.</h2>

<P>In recent years transgender has emerged as a subject of increasing social and cultural interest. This volume offers vivid accounts of the diversity of living transgender in today's world. The first section, "Emerging Identities," maps the ways in which social, cultural, legal and medical developments shape new identities on both an individual and collective level. Rather than simply reflecting social change, these shifts work to actively construct contemporary identities. The second section, "Trans Governance," examines how law and social policy have responded to contemporary gender shifts. The third section, "Transforming Identity," explores gender and sexual identity practices within cultural and subcultural spaces. The final section, "Transforming Theory?", offers a theoretical reflection on the increasing visibility of trans people in today’s society and traces the challenges and the contributions transgender theory has brought to gender theory, queer theory and sociological approaches to identity and citizenship. Featuring contributions from throughout the world, this volume represents the cutting-edge scholarship in transgender studies and will be of interest to scholars and students interested in gender, sexuality, and sociology. </P>

<P>Within a society that long considered "lesbian motherhood" a contradiction in terms, what were the experiences of lesbian mothers at the end of the twentieth century? In this illuminating book, lesbian mothers tell their stories of how they became mothers; how they see their relationships with their children, relatives, lovers, and friends and with their children’s fathers and sperm donors; how they manage child-care arrangements and financial difficulties; and how they deal with threats to custody. Ellen Lewin’s unprecedented research on lesbian mothers in the San Francisco area captured a vivid portrait of the moment before gay and lesbian parenting moved into the mainstream of U.S. culture. Drawing on interviews with 135 women, Lewin provided her readers with a new understanding of the attitudes of individual women, the choices they made, and the texture of their daily lives.</P>
