         There are as many stories of ‘coming out’ as there are out and proud gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people. And there are coming out stories yet to be told by those still locked in the closet or the lingerie drawer. Out Is In is a collection of stories about young men, still kids mostly, facing the hard choice between conforming and becoming their true selves. Coming out can be hard, but staying hidden, keeping raw, strong emotions bottled up, is even harder and more harmful. These stories can be described as delightful. Not only do they portray youthful fear, sorrow and uncertainty but also joy, love and healing. Better yet, they are told with the author’s irrepressible humor.

    In the recent past, “It gets better” has, hopefully, had a helping, healing effect on the world’s LGBT youth. No one chooses to be gay or transgendered, yet some church leaders, politicians, and ordinary people have been taught to hate, to bully, and to deny equality or even the humanity of our precious brothers, sisters, and children.  The road from realization that one is gay to the decision or the accident leading to coming out of the closet can be short or long, smooth or bumpy, but each journey is a story worth telling. Boots, Dogs, and the Sea is filled with gentle, humorous, poignant stories of those young people for whom it did get better, along with a few stories or accounts of those who didn’t make it.

          With a B.A. in English and History, a M.A. in English and creative writing (poetry-- creative thesis), both from Brigham Young University, as well as what he refers to as the questionably honorific” A.B.D. (all but dissertation) for a doctorate in contemporary fiction from the University of Utah. Jed has spent years teaching English and creative writing and over a decade writing, editing, and developing educational testing materials and computer programs. This is Jed’s third published novel. “Companions Nich’ooni” recently came to the attention of some good movie production people, and Jed is hoping to see this work make it to the big screen. (Third time could be a winner.) Jed refers to himself as a jack of all arts, as there are few he has not tried. From boy soprano performing church and party solos at three and tap dancing at five to composing a full-length Broadway style gay musical revue and a few hundred songs as well as poetry, painting, sculpture, and, of course, writing novels. He has lived art. He is presently immersed in hand-painted photomontage art. Jed’s One Pure Truth: “Give your all. If you succeed, it’s just an additional wrinkle.” Jed lives in Nevada, where he continues to explore the possibilities.

Female Impersonator, Show director, hostess, author…

            “Old school, new school, no school… who gives a shit?  I’m too old to go to school. I barely remember last week. When I get too old to remember what the fuck I did when I was young …ger, I’ll just open of these books and laugh my ass off. I wonder how many other queens had this much fun becoming one of the icons of their community. Too funny. I just called myself an icon. Hell, I must be a queen. Only a female impersonator could call themselves a diva, a queen, a star without people giggling behind her back. Giggling is good. A twenty-dollar bill is better. <You can order my damn book from thousands of retailers to directly from MillionHugs.com.>

Different Worlds

        As a kid growing up in a Lutheran Pentecostal church, David Edwards was taught to follow the teachings of the Bible. The church was a safe haven for him. Outside of church, people saw him as a weirdly different person with low social skills and several learning disabilities. In 10th grade he was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. Finally, questions were starting to be answered regarding his "different" personality. He could no longer deny he was also gay. Knowing his church was against homosexuality, he left in order to find his place in a world where being gay can be the social norm.
