Inhaltsangabe: 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.
Über den Autor: Dr. D. Marcell holds a bachelor s degree in English, a master s degree in education, and a doctorate in multiculturalism. In addition to being a scholar, he is an ordained Christian minister with more than 15 years of ministerial experience. He is also the founder and editor-in-chief of N-convenient Truth, a bimonthly publication designed to validate, authenticate, and empower same-gender loving African-American men to fulfill their purpose in the earth. As an educator who also subscribes to liberation theology, Dr. D. Marcell believes that a part of his divine purpose is to bring health, healing, and wholeness to the SGL community as well as to provide practical information to future generations that was not available to him as a youth. As a young Christian African-American, I had no clue about the gay life. There were no books, no guides, and no one I could turn to for help. As a former boyfriend once said, there was no one to model the behavior for us. For years, I denied my sexuality because I simply did not know how to deal with it. When I was growing up, books such as E. Lynn Harris Invisible Life sensationalized the gay lifestyle, but did not offer a practical guide to everyday living. Like so many others, I learned by trial and error...life lessons that I paid for dearly! Now, having learned from these lessons, I feel that it is my duty and responsibility to share what I have learned. My former pastor once told me, Nothing that you go through is ever really for you; it is always for someone else so they will learn from your experience. Saved, Sanctified, and Same-Gender Loving is the first in a series of books in which Dr. D. Marcell will deal with issues pertinent to the African-American SGL community. Dr. D. Marcell resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
