More About the Author

Welcome to my page. I am Rev. Dorinda G. Henry, an ordained minister, the author of Bulldagger, and the creator of "On The Other Side of Midnight" - a progressive, and at times, controversial, Christian blog. I am a long time human rights and social justice activist for basic human dignities, LGBT rights, HIV/AIDS, women, children, low-wealth and other marginalized communities.

I hold a Bachelors Degree in Theology/Religious Studies from Seattle University, and a Masters of Theological Studies with a Certificate in Black Church Studies from Emory University, Candler School of Theology. My Masters Thesis; I, Too, Sing Songs of Freedom: A Theo-Sociological Praxis Toward an Emancipatory Ethic for the Black Church and its Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Members inspired the "Dear Martin Letter" that ran in the January 17, 2005 issue of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Atlanta Daily World and has since been reprinted widely among internet and other resources.

I enjoy engaging others, reading, writing and speaking on human rights, AIDS in the African American community, and Sexuality and the Black Church. I am passionate about life, spirituality, art, literature, and African American culture.

I am currently working on two projects, a revision of "I Too, Sing Songs of Freedom" (publication pending), and "Holy Man; The Truth Behind the Veil" (publication pending). I hope you enjoy my first book, Bulldagger and I look forward to hearing and reading your thoughts about the book. Peace!

If anyone wants to understand a person's life story with compassion, humor and strength this book is for you. It is unique and valuable as it speaks with authenticity of one woman's story of survival in a world that was not accepting or her because she did not fit the 'norm' of society. The author took the resilience and brokenness of her family upbringing and life experiences to become a poetic testament to using her voice. The book is gritty and real, not for the close-minded or faint of heart....or is it? This book points to the love of the women in her life, especially honoring her mother and a faith that called Ms. Henry to justice and service of others.

Desigha a young woman who came into her purpose for her Life, "The Hard Way"! With the hi's and lows, up's and downs and gives and takes she still persevered to accomplish great things for herself as well as others! Once you start reading this novel it is so capturing, each page urges you to keep reading and yes another book from this "Author" is warranted!

I picked up this book on the suggestion of a friend and thought after the first line that I would not get far. What could this book possibly have in its pages for me as a Gay White Man? I am so grateful to God that I did not put it down. This is a bold and vulnerable story about Desigha but really it is a story about me. This book spoke to me about coming of age. I related so much to this story and feel a kinship with Desigha that I didn't think that I would or could feel. Except for being Gay, we had nothing in common, or so I thought. I had problems with my parents! I had problems with coming out? I had problems with finding my way in the world. I even had more than one run-in with the Rich and Famous Closet guy who wanted me to be his "Assistant"! Wow. This book is so profound and topical about bullying and finding your voice. I recommend it for anyone who is struggling with growing up, having grown up feeling wrong, or anyone who just wants a great story to read. Ms. Henry says the story is a Lie but I think that there is so much truth in its pages. It is the Truth which sets you Free and this book is all about freedom! Great Read. Thank you.
