Brave New World

I’m back in magazines! I was a columnist for HIV Plus Magazine a few years ago, and it was one of the joys of my life to be able to share and inspire a little piece of the world. And I now have that opportunity again! A&U Magazine is a brilliant literary magazine that deals with HIV and Culture, and I have followed them for years. I submitted a piece to them a few months ago about dating and serodiscordanacy and they invited me to be a regular contributor… and I am soooo Proud! make sure to check in on the website regularly, and to pick up the magazine where you find it. My column is called “Brave New World!” Let me know what you think!

The way that you know that the soul is real, is that some souls sit deeper in their bodies than others. And some souls haven’t even figured out how to swivel their hips.

The Reverend Troy Perry, Gay activist, in his burnt down church. Los Angeles, 1973
The Gay Essay
Anthony Friedkin
Rev. Troy Perry was a Pentecostal minister whose homosexuality resulted in being driven out of his church in 1965, as well as the dissolution of his marriage. In 1968, after attempting suicide and witnessing the 1967 Black Cat Tavern raid/riot, Rev. Perry felt the call of God to return to his Christianity and to found a church for all people. He started the Metropolitan Community Church, which grew from three people to over 1000 in three months, and now has congregations in 26 countries.
This picture is the remnants of the very first church building owned by an MCC congregation. Other congregations would also be targeted by arson attacks, including the notorious UpStairs Lounge arson in which 32 people died.
This is what true faith looks like. Standing in the ashes of the fire.

Lambda Literary: Please Help!!

justwords:

Hello Beautiful People! I’ve been invited back to Lambda Literary as one of their 2014 Genre Fiction Fellows! As many of you know I was accepted in 2011 as one of their Non-fiction Fellows, and it changed my life! It was a remarkable experience of community, skills building and significant confidence boosting, all while being taught and inspired by some of the best queer writers in the country! It began a journey where I started to treat my writing craft seriously, and it has been rewarding and fulfilling in ways that you cannot even imagine.  In the last few years I have been accepted for other awards and programs that I will not bore you with, but what is MOST important and what I am MOST inspired by, (and why I have been invited back), is that I am halfway through writing my first novel! MY FIRST NOVEL! Can you believe it?! Little ole me is writing a novel! It’s a dark and magical tale of a beautiful green-eyed fairy on a journey to discover and accept his pink butterfly wings. It’s tragic and funny; and full of anal sex! (Like every good story should be.) I’m being silly, but it is a “Dark Urban Fantasy” (or as literary highbrows call it: “Speculative Fiction”.) birthed out of issues of deep addiction; the maddening search for lasting love; and the redemption of self acceptance… And it’s halfway done!  

Help me complete this journey.  Push the big blue donate button on my fundraiser page, and contribute to my tuition! Help me make it to the Lambda Literary Emerging Writers’ Summer Retreat!!  The retreat is an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the very best writers in the LGBT community. My work will be read, work-shopped, and refined by other committed and creative artists from all over the country!

Help me leave a mark on this world with a beautiful piece of fiction, and help me leave a little bit of magic on the page! My goal cost is 1,000 dollars! It will pay for my room and board during the summer program. That’s a huge number for me alone, but with your beautiful help, I’m sure I can make it! Every bit helps! And a little bit more helps even more!

Thank You in Advance!

Love and Laughter,

Corey Saucier
