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.

As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
