So much about Giving It Raw: Nearly 30 Years with HIV is raw — the sex, the emotions, the loss — that there are moments you want to move away from the unflinching honesty, close the book, not so you can avoid his frank and deliciously graphic recollections of sexual encounters over the last several decades as a gay positive man, but so you too don’t find yourself remembering the same visceral loss and haunting loneliness, the moment in time where despair and shame and hedonism were the only antidotes to the bodies piling up around us. Shedding that shame, in part becoming the man he is through BDSM, fetishes, and rough trade, is what Ibáñez-Carrasco writes of so eloquently (the title being a clear nod to this past and present), but this is not a book about sex, not a work of erotica. It’s a tragicomic confessional, a history lesson, and an intellectual treatise on sex, love, family, and a virus that’s killing fewer but still too many.

LGBT Memoir – The Clouds Still Hang

The Clouds Still HangThe Clouds Still Hang
By Patrick C Notchtree
Publisher: Limebury Books
ISBN: 978-0957236127
ASIN: B009PC5FZY
Genre: LGBT Memoir
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub

A complete trilogy which is a candid, true memoir of a gay man’s life, telling a story of love and loyalty, betrothal and betrayal, triumph and tragedy; charting one gay man’s attempts to rise above the legacy of a traumatic childhood.

The first book deals with Simon’s childhood friendship and eventually love affair with an older boy and early sexualisation, the second the trauma of his teenage years and early adulthood, the third his struggle to maintain equilibrium and the disastrous consequences of his failure at one point to achieve that and his fight back to self acceptance.

Based on the author’s own life, it will strike a chord with many who have been through similar things, as well as those with an interest in such matters, either personal or professional, such as police and probation officers, those involved with the gay / LGBT community etc.

It’s a varied, exciting, demanding, sometimes terrifying life story. Of adult nature in places, it contains some explicit sexual narrative, including sexual violence.
