BORN TO BE DAMNED is a nostalgic trip into one mans past to examine the torment and humiliation he felt as his gay tapestry evolved into reality. Religion, environment and genetics combined to ensure he fulfilled his destiny as a gay man.
Life in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s was easy, the future predictable and America would endure forever. It was the age of innocence.
However, certain social ills existed and were never discussed. Teenage pregnancy was a moral issue and girls often disappeared for nine months only to return as though nothing had happened. The shame was too great to bear, but being gay was a religious damnation punishable by everlasting death. No one discussed sexual orientation and gay people found themselves desolate, frustrated and isolated. Suicide was often the only way out.
The focus of this book is to educate society about the genetic birthright of sexual orientation and to dispel many of the gay myths which permeate our society today. This exhilarating story is intended for gay or straight readers who are trying to come to terms with their own sexuality or who have painful childhood memories devastating their lives. Read, connect and find yourself in this moving story of courage and fortitude.
