I can't help but feel a little like Leo -- I'm going to back in my hometown for two weeks over the holidays. Every time that I am there, I feel out of place all over again -- not because I'm treated differently, although I am sometimes -- but because things change. No matter how often I go back to visit, it always feels like a million years have passed and the world kept going without me. 

If you're in the Pittsburgh area and have read LEO'S LOVE STORY, send me a message! I would love to hear from you . I will be speaking with some local booksellers while I'm in town, so I will keep you posted if we get stocked in the hometown market! 

Have a Happy Holiday -- wherever the season may take you! 
 
 
We've come a long way, but not nearly far enough if people are still contracting and dying from this disease. 

I can't help but wonder if sex and sexual orientation didn't carry the stigmatism that they do, if it would be easier to educate people? I think that books, films, and television shows that break boundaries and show the public that sex isn't dirty and that orientation is just the way it is -- has and will continue to be -- that we might be able to change the world  and end this epidemic.
