An American Memory by George Seaton
Published February 26th 2014 by Wilde City Press
From the discovery and acceptance of our queer selves within the purely American landscape of the ‘50s, from the Big Party engendered by Stonewall, to the scourge of AIDS and on to present day, the heroes of these stories are ourselves, still robust after all these years, still understanding the truths gathered from our pasts. If Denver in the ‘50s was awash in mediocrity, Hollywood became in the ‘70s a phastasmagoria of licentiousness. If the ‘80s and ‘90s became the boogieman’s haunt, the resulting enforced discovery of the worth of love and commitment of each of us to the other became the new reality of our lives.

* more than 150$ is a direct donation from a supporter of the Rainbow Awards who isn't submitting; while some authors were more than generous, arriving to donate 5 times the suggested amount, being the submission fee a non mandatory and voluntary direct donation, we were struggling to raise the same amount as last year and there is who decided to cover part of it. I thank you for all you are doing, and if you wish to donate to the above links, please drop me a note with your donation and I will update the total.
