His Story

   (2 reviews)
Genres: General Fiction
Sub-genres: Drama

Modern gay life is hard enough, with homophobia, bar culture and dysfunctional relationships, but how do you navigate it carrying the baggage of the ex-gay movement?

Chris was involved with an ex-gay organisation as a teenager, after a breakdown he broke away from them. Now, as an adult, Chris is trying to live as an out gay man but the baggage of his past keeps pulling him back.

So often the damage does not stop when the abuse does.

This six-part story asks how does someone come to terms with the aftermath of the ex-gay movement.


This story, in a way, is a companion piece to my story Keeping the Faith, though it is about different characters.

This 6-part story is sad because of the subject matter, however it is because of the subject matter this piece demands reading.

People should not have to fight to live and enjoy their lives, not because of who they love. In Drew's blurb about this story, he tells us life for Gay people is hard enough without interference from outside forces. Our children should not be told they are wrong for being Gay or Trans or anything else. Life itself is a huge enough challenge without that.

Drew shows us one such life and fallout from fighting who you were born to be.

Do not pass this one by.

I recently read a v long story  which was v good , except for one thing. there was zero emotional content. Whereas here we can see the emotional damage suffered by young vulnerable gays.  

I think that this is an exceptional piece of writing.

i strongly recommend this and other writings by the author.
