Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My story starts with shame. Shame of forbidden thoughts, shame of impossible feelings, shame of simply being me. There was also quite a bit of fear in my story. Fear of disappointing my parents, fear of being exposed as I truly was, fear of being left alone.
I was 13 when I started writing the first words about my sexual identity, hoped that no one would read what I had to write. For seven years I pretended I was someone else, faked happy smiles, lied to the closest people to me - just so they would not reveal the worst secret of all. Seven years in which I hid in a closet of shame, prayed to the God of sexual identity to make me 'normal' like everyone else.
 
But I was not born with a bracelet of shame on my wrist. Shame has been dripping into my life for years by people who thought I was not worth it, people who thought I had no place in this world, people who believed that I was all evil in this world. The shame grew stronger with every "gay" shout I heard in the school hallways; With every bill in favor of the LGBTQ that didn't go through; With every hate article that described lgbtq people as perverts; with every bullying post referred to gay people as sick; With every hate crime against the LGBTQ. It evolved every time I was told I was "too flushed", "too pretty", "too sensitive". These were not easy years for a young boy who was just starting to discover the world. Those messages I have received for so many years, did not leave much room for pride in me.  
It took me seven years until I was able to start writing the pride chapter in my story. Seven long years during which I took off the layers of shame, fear and guilt, until I felt strong and brave enough to come out of the closet as who I have always been.

2002, I am at the Gay Pride Parade for the first time. Excited and anxious I started walking towards them - a huge and colorful community, which seemed to be waiting for me to arrive. Thousands of people were there - smiling, dancing, happy as they were. In one incredible moment I realized that I had not been sick all those years. I hadn't been a criminal or a dangerous pervert who will end up his life sick and lonely. There were so many people just like me. I could finally breathe. I was fine, I have probably always been. The walk of shame had changed into a celebration of pride.


In the years that followed, I came out to my closest friends and family, helped others to find their way, I  became an LGBTQ advocate and fought for civil rights and equality for all.

At the age of 28 I fell in love with the sweetest guy in the world and 5 years later we fulfilled the biggest dreams we always had - building our own family. Following a long and complicated journey I became a father to the most beautiful twin girls in the world.

 
At that day I swore I would do whatever I could to make this world a better place to grow-up in and educate the younger generation about acceptance, tolerance, and the true meaning of pride. 27 years after the words of shame, I publish my debut children's book about pride.
 
'A Day of Pride' is dedicated to children of all kind; To those who grow up in families of all shapes and colors; To those who feel differently or think outside of the box; To grown-ups who may have forgotten what pride is all about. It is also dedicated to the 13 year old kid I once was.
