this is one of the best things i have read recently. there is much in it that i can identify with.

it tells the story in his own words of his CSA, life of secrecy and pain, and being outed, attacked and embraced by various factions.

it does have some discussion of Christian issues as part of the narrative, so that might be a trigger for some, but it is worth reading (or skipping) on to the end, if you can.
