"Traci has taken her love, compassion, and caring around thecountry to get people's stories and has beautifully melded them with her owninspirational story about her and her son Daniel.  Voices from theRainbow is a book that will combat hate and homophobia, while helping youngGLBTQ youth to learn to love themselves".

"As the stories in Voices fromthe Rainbow accumulate, the power and beauty of what Traci Leigh Taylor hasaccomplished in this book becomes undeniable. By sharing not just her own storybut also inviting  others to share theirs, the struggles and achievementsof so many young men and women, told in their own voices, reveal powerfulemotional truths. Taylor's  of our society's continued need to bettersupport our LGBTQ members, because they are, after all, our children".

You Don't Love This Man

From the Author

  My book is thememoir of a journey I began the day Daniel, my fifteen-year-old son, told methat he was gay.  When he went on stage at aGLBTQ film festival in Washington DC for a Q & A for the film he starred in"The Big Gay Musical" and told the audience his mother was writing a book aboutus the door opened for me to begin. Mystory begins with the decision I made to accept my son and interviews withimportant people in my son's villagethat helped him to survive and succeed. My interviews include my son's gay andlesbian friends and some of their mothers.  When my son posted on Facebook and twitter toemail his mother with their stories my world expanded across the US and toother countries. Many emails from those LGBTQ who were afraid to come out alsohave a letter to their parents, the ones they wish they could send.
        
 Some emails led me back to church to interview a gay minister, hiscoming out story and his opinion of LGBTQ and Christianity. I reached outfurther to a LGBTQ homeless center in New York and a LGBTQ youth center inPortland Oregon. I interviewed a cross-dresser, his wife and director of TransYouth Allies whose son transitioned from male to female. A minister who went through successfulsexual reassignment surgery from female to male almost forty years ago and ainterview with Darcelle an eighty two year old gay man in Portland, Oregon whois the owner and performer of the oldest drag show in the US. Anti-bullying isdiscussed with a school counselor who teaches "Steps to Respect". Finally Iinterview a Two Spirited Indian and his mother and heard about the IndianWay of acceptance.  I have compiled overfifty interviews to allow the LGBTQ I have met to tell their stories, andhopefully open the eyes of their friends and parents to the importance ofacceptance.
