Orange Boder FINAL copyI recently had the pleasure of publishing an excerpt from author J.H. Hayes’s new book, ‘How Christianity Sustains a Gay Man.’ In this newest Live Mic podcast, James talk to me about his life, his activism and its origins, and his writing. Listen in … and be sure to check out his website at JHHayes.com

From the book’s description:

The story of my life is testament to enduring love and the strength of those who shared it with me. Raised by loving parents in a Southern Baptist home near Houston, I relate personal struggles with acceptance, drugs, activism and spirituality. The book reveals how my Christian Faith prevails over guilt-ridden religion. “Out” in 1980 at age 23, by 1993 I was an AIDS and Civil Rights activist. My Mother’s journey elevates our triumphant story and documents the path to assimilation. She was a hard-core Baptist who grew to accept, understand and love me through Faith.
