A conversation about the struggles – religious, social, and psychological – of growing up gay in America. We’ll meet Mitchell Gold, a successful furniture company owner from Alexander County who has put together the stories of 40 people from across the country and their experiences of coming to terms with their sexuality. We’ll talk about the common themes of depression, fear, anxiety and loneliness that appear through the stories and book and how Mr. Gold thinks this book will help gay kids in the future.
