Robert DeMarco: Live Gay or Die Lying

Gavin Harrison: "Petals and Blood" 

"Petals and Blood" weaves ecstatic poetry with stories drawn from the poet’s stark, vulnerable and adventurous life: from growing up gay in South Africa with a childhood pervaded by sexual abuse, to multiple near-death encounters from living with HIV for over 30 years, to his embrace of Buddhism and Sufi poetry. Defying apartheid, helping orphaned children in Africa, realizing Oneness with murderers in a maximum-security prison, uniting with The Infinite at the threshold of death, making peace with illness and betrayal, offering prayers to the Goddess Pele in Hawai’i and his devotion to Mother Africa. The stories and poems remind us that our Essential Nature remains unsullied and untouched by whatever may befall us, no matter how unfortunate the circumstances of our lives may be. 

Gavin Harrison is donating five dollars from the sale of every book purchased via his website petalsandblood.com  to organizations providing support to those affected by HIV, AIDS and poverty.

Author's website

How it works:

  • We consider all kinds of literary works for publication: from essays to love poems, from coming-out stories to steamy erotic texts. With the growth of this website, we will introduce categories to make it easier for our readers to find the texts they like.
  • This is not a blog, nor a forum / group for endless (and often fruitless) discussions, but intended as an online collection of texts written by aspiring and established gay authors who want to show their talent as poets, literary reviewers, and writers of prose and essays related to gay topics.
  • Gay Literature is an endeavor by a New York publishing house. Due to the sensitive nature of the material to be published, we cannot allow automatic and instant online publishing. Please use one of our forms to submit your texts, links, reviews etc. If appropriate, we will try to publish your works within 2-3 business days. Make sure that your texts are carefully proofread by yourself and others. We will ignore material of poor linguistic quality. Do not submit material, if you don't accept our terms and conditions (see "About us" section).
  • You keep the copyright of your published works, and you can ask us to remove your texts from this website at any time; simply write us an e-mail.
