Description
The “I’m From Driftwood” book puts 51 true and inspiring LGBTQ stories into the palm of your hand. The stories inside range from coming out and falling in love to doing laundry and going to the prom. Each purchase helps ImFromDriftwood.com collect and share more stories to send a powerful message to queer youth: you are not alone. The "I'm From Driftwood" book is a companion anthology to the acclaimed non-profit also called I'm From Driftwood. Originally published as a print book, the anthology shares true, first-person LGBT stories from around the world. The book was edited by Nathan Manske, who launched the web site in March, 2009. The "ImFromDriftwood" website offers an astounding variety of true stories and video accounts of LGBT lives, written with candor, humor, tears and bravery. They range from one man’s closeted life in Indiana in the 1950s to another man’s membership in an underground gay-straight alliance in present-day Indonesia. The web site allows everyone to post their personal stories to inform, educate and encourage others.
