POZ Picks-Winter Reads

by LaToya Johnson

Warrior Princess: Fighting for Life With Courage and Hope (InterVarsity Press, $22)
Growing up in Africa, Princess Kasune Zulu watched her parents and sister die of AIDS-related illness. When she learned she, too, was HIV positive, Zulu chose to be a victor—not a victim. Celebrate her strength by reading her story.

Love Won’t Let Me Be Silent (Baker and Taylor Publishing, $17.95)
In this stirring collection of articles, short stories and romantic poetry, author and staunch AIDS advocate Terry Angel Mason shares his often wrenching experiences as an openly gay, HIV-positive black man.

Face to Face: Children of the AIDS Crisis in Africa (Hope Publishing House, $39.95)
This collection of stories and photos by Karen Ande and Ruthann Richer brings you face to face with children struggling to grow up amid poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but these will leave you speechless.

Terry Angel Mason's book is a beautiful reflection of his positive energy and amazing resilience. Mason challenges societal bias, but without accusation of individuals- instead, he invites change through the sharing of stories. It is open and passionate, full of encouragement and triumph for those who share any of the author's experiences, yet is still very accessible to anyone else who has ever loved and felt so strongly for someone that love simply wouldn't let them be silent.

Mason masterfully tackles the intersection of race & homophobia in "Love Won't Let Me Be Silent" while simultaneosuly challenging heterosexual privilege; leaving the reader with a profound sense of self-worth whereas before it may have been in question. If black men loving other black men is considered a revolutionary act, then Mason provides a blueprint to love God, yourself, and ultimately the man of your choosing boldly and without reservation in "Love Won't Let Me Be Silent".

Love Wont Let Me Be Silent by Terry Angle Mason is a great speaker and advocate for HIV/AIDS. He has writen several books. Love wont let me be silent looks into HIV/AIDS from a person who is African American and is from the African American Community. This book is from a person who was very sick with the virus and came back. We love Terry and his book. from Elton Stovell, Program Director NHA Case Management and Peer support Services.

Getting kids to understand gay and lesbian issues is something few ever try as the possible outcome can be confusing at most. In our American society with so many anti-gay attitudes, it may be difficult to teach our children to respect homosexuals as human beings. The facts are that homosexuals are part of our society, children must understand the issues in a non-judgmental way. The book, "Love Won't Let Me Be Silent gives you useful suggestions to help you to foster that understanding with kids

Robin Downey, West Hollywood, 2010-01-09 13:34:58
Love Won't Let Me Be Silent is becoming the most talked about book in america among any God-fearing, same-gender lover plus their friends & family. In perfect prose, it bridges the man-made gaps between religion, race & politics. Then offers love-based solutions to any & all problems plaguing our communities. I am changed after reading it & I know you will be too...
