Prayers for Bobby
11,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Bobby Griffith, at the age of 15, realized that he was gay and in conflict with his religious upbringing. Through Bobby´s journal entries and his mother´s reminiscences we learn of the emotional torment that led Bobby to take his own life. Prayers for Bobby takes readers through his mother´s anguish and disbelief to her transformation from biblical literalist to enlightened parent. Bobby Griffith was an all-American boy ...and he was gay. Faced with an irresolvable conflict-for both his family and his religion taught him that being gay was ´´wrong´´-Bobby chose to take his own life. Prayers for Bobby, nominated for a 1996 Lambda Literary Award, is the story of the emotional journey that led Bobby to this tragic conclusion. But it is also the story of Bobby´s mother, a fearful churchgoer who first prayed that her son would be ´´healed,´´ then anguished over his suicide, and ultimately transformed herself into a national crusader for gay and lesbian youth. As told through Bobby´s poignant journal entries and his mother´s reminiscences, Prayers for Bobby is at once a moving personal story, a true profile in courage, and a call to arms to parents everywhere.

A coming-of-age memoir of a young swimmer´s triumphs and heartbreaks on the path to winning Olympic gold at age 14. Some 50 years later, author Carolyn Wood embarks on a solo pilgrimage to walk the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago in an attempt to reclaim her ´´inner tough girl´´ as she reflects on coming out as gay in the 1970s after a brief marriage and motherhood, and the disillusionment and loss she experiences when her 30-year relationship suddenly ends. After several failed attempts at learning to swim, young Carolyn Wood finally conquers her fears and dives into unknown waters. By 1958 she sets a goal to make the 1960 Olympic team and, along with teammates and competitors, begins the arduous road to Rome. Losses, pain, fear, and fatigue accompany the rambunctious athlete as she finds her way through athletic training, school, and dealing with social gender expectations as she realizes she´s gay. Tough Girl artfully weaves Wood´s life story around the tale of her long walk on the Camino de Santiago, an effort to tap into her tough girl resilience so she can begin to accept the end of her long marriage. The ups and downs of Carolyn´s childhood road to the Olympics as well as her journey on the Camino, will thrill and inspire readers.

A memoir and manifesto from the comedian, hit podcast host, and star of United Shades of America You may know W. Kamau Bell from his critically acclaimed hit show on CNN United Shades of America. Or maybe you´ve read about him in the New York Times, which called him ´´the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.´´ Or maybe in the New Yorker, fawning over his brand of humor, writing, ´´Bell´s gimmick is intersectional progressivism: he treats racial, gay, and women´s issues as inseparable.´´ The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell is a humorous, well-informed take on the world today, tackling a wide range of current and evergreen issues such as the 2016 election, race relations, fatherhood, the state of law enforcement today, comedians and superheroes, right-wing politics, failure, his interracial marriage, his upbringing by divorced and very strong-willed, race-conscious parents, his early days struggling to find his comedic voice, why he never felt at home in Black comedy circles, what it means to be a Black nerd, the balance between racism and feminism, and much, much more.

Philomena. Film Tie-In

When she fell pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent at Roscrea in Co. Tipperary to be looked after as a fallen woman. She cared for her baby for three years until the Church took him from her and sold him, like countless others, to America for adoption. Coerced into signing a document promising never to attempt to see her child again, she nonetheless spent the next fifty years secretly searching for him, unaware that he was searching for her from across the Atlantic. Philomena´s son, renamed Michael Hess, grew up to be a top Washington lawyer and a leading Republican official in the Reagan and Bush administrations. But he was a gay man in a homophobic party where he had to conceal not only his sexuality but, eventually, the fact that he had AIDS. With little time left, he returned to Ireland and the convent where he was born: his desperate quest to find his mother before he died left a legacy that was to unfold with unexpected consequences for all involved. Philomena is the tale of a mother and a son whose lives were scarred by the forces of hypocrisy on both sides of the Atlantic and of the secrets they were forced to keep. With a foreword by Judi Dench, Martin Sixsmith´s book is a compelling and deeply moving narrative of human love and loss, both heartbreaking yet ultimately redemptive.

Was bleibt, wenn einem alles genommen, wenn sogar die Identität ausradiert werden soll? Wie erinnert man sich an die Zeit, in der man ausgelöscht werden sollte? 2004 in Arkansas im sogenannten Bible Belt der USA: Ein Bekannter outet den neunzehnjährigen Garrard Conley gegen seinen Willen vor den Eltern als homosexuell. Seit Jahren schon kämpft Conley gegen die Scham, die ihm als einzigem Sohn eines Baptistenpredigers eingeimpft ist. Er selbst ist tief verwurzelt in einer christlich-fundamentalistischen Gemeinde, in einer Gesellschaft, die die Bibel beim Wort nimmt, in der nichts geduldet wird, was nicht der unabänderlichen Norm entspricht. Unvermittelt steht er vor der Entscheidung seines Lebens: Stimmt er einer Konversionstherapie zu, einem kirchlichen Programm, das ihn in zwölf Schritten von seiner Homosexualität ´heilen´, von unreinen Trieben säubern, seinen Glauben festigen und aus ihm einen ex-gay machen soll, oder riskiert er, seine Familie, seine Freunde und den Gott, zu dem er an jedem Tag seines Lebens gebetet hat, zu verlieren? Soll er sein äußeres Leben auslöschen oder sein Inneres? Garrard Conley spürt den komplexen Beziehungen von Familie, Glauben und Gemeinschaft nach und zeichnet dabei ein Bild von einem Amerika, mit dem wir heute mehr denn je konfrontiert sind. Doch Conley versucht dabei auch stets jene zu verstehen, die ihm aus gutem Glauben heraus so viel Schmerz zugefügt haben. Dieser Lebensbericht lässt einen frieren angesichts der Kalte, mit der Fundamentalisten in den USA anderen ihre Ideologie überstülpen. Aber Boy Erased ist auch ein Zeugnis der Liebe, die trotzdem überleben kann.
