Description

David Radford first had an inkling that he was gay at eight years old. While watching Super Friends, he found himself attracted to Aquaman – not Wonder Woman, like his friends. David discusses the Shreveport gay party scene, Southern Decadence, his time working with gay youth in Denver, and faking his way through Cotillion, the ‘coming out’ of straight debutantes and gentlemen in the Deep South. He also chronicles his addiction struggles, surviving a suicide attempt and two relapses. After long-term isolation from his parents, his battle with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma brought them together, forever changing their faith and religious practice.
