This book is a collection of poetry that explores both the history of oppression of mentally ill people especially LGBTQ people who have mental illness in the United States as well as western Europe. The book is also a personal journey for me with regards to my battle to be a gay man out of the closet even though my mood disorder made me have unwarranted paranoia against my family and how they would react to my coming out. These poems were written over the course of five years.
I have a second book forthcoming based on newer poems as well that will be a sequel of sorts to this tome and explore with even greater rawness the themes I begin to explore here.
