Overview

What is Gay Realism; more specifically what is it to be Gay? In this book John Lee captures through poetry the raw and uncensored thoughts, feelings, and emotions that Gays are experiencing in America and around the world today.

Poetry is Gay is a book that contains over a hundred poems, more like short stories, that strike on every Gay related subject that the author could conceive. It covers everything from Coming Out, Teen Suicide, Love, God, the Defense of Marriage Act, Don't Ask Don't Tell, and much more. The poems within this book are raw, uncensored, and Gay from the heart!

John Lee believes that the Gay Community has been dehumanized by a stereotypical generic formula that ignores the reality of Gay men and women. Poetry is Gay is an attempt to shatter that old societal mold and to represent the Gay Community in a literal perspective. John Lee said "The millions of LGBT Youth around the world need a representation of the community that demonstrates the intelligence, the integrity, and the life of Gay men and women, rather than what people would hear from a comedian and the Gay Rights Opposition." This book's bold attempt to rectify, console, and inspire the Gay situation of today is awe inspiring!

The Gay Community has made several tremendous strides in the last thirty years in terms of constructing a culture amongst itself. Though there is more work to be done in combating the stereotypes of old. In doing so, John Lee believes that the community can grow and prosper as it asserts its truth. This book is but one man's way of doing so. Poetry is Gay is a revolution of Human thought, Human work, and Human Art.
