Mind Your Own Life: The Journey Back to LoveAaron Anson releases a thought-provoking narrative examining the social impact of homophobia in the black community and the influence of religion in general. Life-enhancing autobiography of growing up a confused and closeted gay in the deeply religious South. After a stint in the military, Anson seeks affirmation from a Christian religion he inherited that is at odds with his inherent sexuality.Raised a devout Christian in the South and endeavoring to uphold indoctrinated beliefs, he struggled to suppress his nascent sexuality in hopes of escaping the paradox of being gay with Christian beliefs. Confused and conflicted while seeking validation from a religion that despised him wholly, he married and fathered two children, hopeful that his knowing of being gay would vanish and relieve this tremendous burden that he secretly harbored for many years. This book; targeting parents, adults, and teens; chronicles Anson’s struggles with depression, denial, and acceptance in the face of external homophobia influenced by religions and politics beyond his control.“Every once in a while I get a book that slaps me across the face because it allows me to see the reality of something I may not have thought about. Aaron Anson is the real thing and he delivers a very real message about love. He reveals to us that to know love we must first know ourselves and be at peace with the world we live in.”—Amos Lassen, literary reviewer
