Mitchell Gold: The Book is "Crisis"...and So is the Topic

Mitchell Gold is all over the "Life Section" of the News and Observer (Raleigh, NC) this morning. He pulled together a host of contributors to send in essays about growing up gay or lesbian in America and put them in his book CRISIS: 40 Stories Revealing the Personal, Social, and Religious Pain and Trauma of Growing up Gay in America. Bob understands this personally as he grew up in a Jewish family in Trenton, NJ, hiding his being gay.

In person, he is passionate about all the LBTGQ teenagers who are shut out of their families and faith communities, wandering the streets, homeless and hungry. CRISIS profits will go toward alleviating this condition in American society.

He also began Faith in America, addressing religious bigotry toward LGBTQ people in American society. Faith in America had a powerful impact upon the most recent presidential election in promoting candidates who were pro-LGBTQ.
