In the summer of 2011 I began attending a Men's support group in Los Angeles where a panel of youth were discussing the sexual isssues the had encountered in their late teens, and early twenties. The discussion covered everything from sexual harassment in the work place, to friends with HIV.
By the end of the discussion I knew I needed to become more involved with this group of indiviuals so that I could share my private experiences, strength, and hope in order to help them avoid the pain and suffereing I once endured in my own youth.
One thing that I 've learnt with blood, sweat and tears is that we should not under estimate the power, and effect of a unhealthy self image when it comes to our love lives and, the affairs of the heart. The social rejection I encountered left me both stressed and depressed for what seemed like forever.That became the motivation for a project of short stories about sexual experimentation, so people like you won't have to hurt forever.
This project is dedicated to the memory of James Baldwin who wrote a controversial little book called "Giovanni's Room" in the 60's.It was, what it was then; and still stands the test of time.I invite you to read a few of the short storiesof Gary Cooper titled "Based On Real Events"
