    If you enjoy Gay, Coming of Age videos and stories, you’ll want to read Cameron DeCessna’s latest book, Clay Parker: Growing Up Gay in 1953. It’s the story of a fourteen-year-old boy confused by his feelings, thoughts and dreams as he reaches adolescence and finds his sexual interests are for other teenaged boys. But it's 1953, a time of conservatism and rigid family and moral values. To top off Clay's problems, he's an orphan forced to live with an abusive aunt and uncle who openly show their distaste for the lad who was severely burned when a house fire killed his mother, father and younger brother. They would be the last persons he could turn to, to help him cope with his alien feelings. This is the story of Clay's troubles, trials and final triumph as he strives to find a family who will love him after he is forced to run away from home after a severe beating by his drunken uncle. One part of the story deals with Clay's uncomfortable experiences listening to a sermon at his aunt and uncle's church. He discovers the real meaning behind the story of Sodom & Gamorrah and how it demonstrates the Bible's condemnation of being queer. The book contains graphic sexual descriptions that may not be suitable for children under 12, although it would be highly recommended reading for gay teens to raise their awareness of the struggles of adolescent gay boys in earlier times. Cameron DeCessna is a gay novelist best known for his Jordan Dare Trilogy, released in mid-summer of 2018 and available at Amazon Kindle Books. While the Jordan Dare series is written for all readers, 12 and up, and has no adult-only content, some of DeCessna's works are more suitable for adult readers. This novel, Clay Parker: Growing up Gay in 1953, is the first of several gay, coming-of-age stories the author plans to release in late 2018 and 2019. DeCessna, born in 1951, writes from personal experience and vividly captures the difficulties faced by gay adolescents during those times. Look for Cameron DeCessna’s books and visit his author’s page at Amazon/Kindle Publishing.

    He sounds a beautiful boy.....
    ...but I hope he doesn't become a Heath Ledger and can't snap out of character. Life is beautiful; live your life!

      Actually the story that Heath Ledger couldnt snap out of a character is just a myth. The cause of his death and depression was diffrent

      Antoinette C When you see these “next gen” (Millennial) movie makers...Lucas, Timothee Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, Greta Gerwig...they are all intellectuals. Gives me hope.

      @Mark L Stories of survival, especially against oppression or perceived oppression, is absolutely a genre in American film. It developed in the late 1960s and is an outgrowth of the proliferation of social identity in academic work (black studies, gender studies, etc) and the social coalitions that underpin US political parties (ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, etc.).

      @Tia Lopez It's a true story of someone's life. It's not a genre, it's someone's story of survival.

      Perhaps you should go watching the fucking movie before you deem it sad and soupy. And it's not a coming-out movie by any stretch.
