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!
