from the Lulu website:
Some would say that everything about “coming out” has been written; that everything about AIDS, gay relationships, religious conflict, exclusion and grief has already been “done.” This slim anthology refutes that. Gay City: Volume One is a collection of fiction, poetry, comic art and photography published under the auspices of Seattle's Gay City Health Project. The work addresses Gay City's mission of preventing HIV transmission by building community, fostering communication, and nurturing self-esteem. Included here are author Tom Spanbauer’s “Mr. Energy”, written during the dark dawn of AIDS, alongside “Ethan Green” creator, Eric Orner’s visual chronicle of “25 Years, 25 Fears.” Inside you’ll find an excerpt from syndicated columnist Michael Thomas Ford’s novel “Full Circle”, eight pieces from the award winning poet Peter Pereira, and groundbreaking works from artist Donna Barr, plus many others.
