It's 2AM, and for some reason I've been going through my blog (all the way back to 2007) and reading the posts. Blame it on insomnia. Anyway, I cam across three posts that I wrote about YA & Sexuality back in 2010.
Deathday included a gay best friend and FML included a totally open and drama free gay couple, but with The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley, I've finally done what I set out to do. I wrote a book featuring a gay main character in a story that's not about being gay. I've written exactly the kind of book I needed to read when I was a teenager. With Five Stages, I feel like I've written something that might have kept teenage me from wanting to kill himself.
So I thought I'd repost those three blogs here because they're just as relevant now than they were back then.
