My book Exhaustion is free for download today, which you can find on the link. In the meantime, here’s an excerpt from the book.
I think of all the hateful things that people who are gay have gone through. I think about all the people who are gay that have been persecuted by churches and bigots and people who hate gays. I think of all the cruel jokes that a homosexual might hear in their lifetime. But, I’m a street kid. I’m a street kid that nobody has ever heard of and nobody will ever hear of, because I am essentially nothing to the world. Ergo, why the hell would they care about my sexual preference? If God was so hospitable to put me in this street life, in this down-on-my-luck position, in so low a position, why would he care what I do, what I believe in, who I like and who I love? Why would any of that matter? If I’m a street kid, it means that I don’t have any rights. It means that people don’t give a shit about what happens to me. So why should they care about what I believe? Why should they care about my liking for Rafael? It’s really none of their concern, using their own logic. If they could care less about my existence on the street …
Well, anyway. I won’t bludgeon you to death with that. But it’s true. I’m just a street kid, meaning that everything I do is null in the social world, in the real world. Nothing I do matters. I’m nothing, really, when it all comes down to it. God’s too busy tending to the rich corporate thieves that he doesn’t have time for a lowly street kid that has a slight crush on his best friend, Rafael. It’s nothing personal, but it’s certainly the irony of our existence. If God actually cared about me, I wouldn’t be a street kid to begin with. God probably doesn’t even exist, anyway.
