Orphea Proud by Sharon Dennis Wyeth


Taboo to the touch

A fire in the cold

That was us

Welcome to a stage, where a soaring painting takes shape before your eyes, a big-booty poet stands at the mike, and there’s a seat right in front, just for you.

This is a place where wise old ladies live and boys act like horses.

This is a vision of love that was crushed and brought back to life.

And this is my story. I’m Orphea Proud. Welcome to the show.

As Orphea, who discovers her sexuality as a lesbian, shares her story, powerful questions of family, prejudice, and identity are explored.

From the Hardcover edition.

this book was a very good book, it made me wonder how someones life could be changed in a split second.How the people you love can be taken away so fast, it aslo showed me that when one door closes (even if you dont want to be closed) another one opens, it could be for the worst but most times its for the best. I give this book two thumbs up and I think every one should read this book because this book makes you really sit back and think how you life should and could be.
