Overview

African-American Same-Gender Loving (SGL) men are a group that has been historically marginalized by their own families, communities, and churches - shamed into suppressing their homoerotic desires and claiming “faux” deliverance, which has caused many to become oppressed, depressed, and voiceless! Saved, Sanctified, and Same-Gender Loving is not only a proclamation of reclamation for me, but for all African-American SGL men who have lived conflicted lives, tormented by indoctrinated fears of eternal damnation, terrified of being rejected by God and family, and driven to schizophrenic nihilism (feelings of lovelessness, hopelessness, and despair).

In this book, I present stories that illustrate my struggle to reconcile my spiritual and sexual identities; I also challenge other African-American SGL men (whether openly gay, closeted, down-low, or transgendered) to confront their own identity. The time has come for a paradigm shift in which African-American churches and communities reevaluate, reconsider, and reconceptualize their natural and spiritual perceptions of African-American SGL members.

Saved, Sanctified, and Same-Gender Loving is the first in a series that will deal with issues pertinent to the African-American SGL community. It presents counter-narratives that give a different perspective into this segment of the SGL population and asks you (the reader) questions of reconciliation designed to foster transformation. Whether you are straight or same-gender loving, I challenge you to approach this book with an open mind and an open heart.
