Dance describes the life of Dr. Ann Peterson-Higgins. She was definitely "Born to Dance". Ann spent her entire life dancing and brining joy to thousands of people from all walks of life. Dance is shut up in her bones waiting to explode with every expression of movement. However, like the prophet Jonah who rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord (Jonah I:3), Ann spent some of her early years running from the call that was on her life. Going in the opposite direction of her call took her into night life and bright lights. In I Was Born to Dance, Ann bares her soul and candidly shares her life experiences, as the hand of God skillfully transformed her from a "star with no light" into a vessel of honor to show forth the brilliant splendor of the Glory of God. This book is especially written to encourage others to also use their giftings to EXPOSE GOD'S GLORY.

In I Was Born This Way, Carl Bean, former Motown recording artist, noted AIDS activist, and founder of the Unity Fellowship of Christ Church in Los Angeles, shares his extraordinary personal journey from Baltimore foster homes to the stage of the Apollo Theater and beyond. CARL BEAN has been crossing boundaries all his life and helping others do the same. He’s never been stopped by his race or orientation, never fit or stayed in the boxes people have wanted to put him in. He left his foster home in Baltimore at seventeen and took the bus to New York City, where he quickly found the rich culture of the Harlem churches. As a singer, first with the gospel Alex Bradford Singers and later as a Motown recording artist, Bean was a sensation. When Berry Gordy signed him to record "I Was Born This Way," it was a first: the biggest black-owned record company broadcasting a statement on gender identity. The #1 song, recorded with the Sweet Inspirations, was the first gay liberation dance club hit. Whether making records, educating the black community about HIV and AIDS, or preaching to his growing congregation, Archbishop Bean has never wanted to minister to just one group. He’s worked on AIDS issues with C. Everett Koop and Elizabeth Taylor and on civil rights issues with Maxine Waters, Julian Bond, and Reverend Joseph Lowery. At the height of his recording career, he worked with Dionne Warwick, Burt Bacharach, Miles Davis, and Sammy Davis Jr. He’s brought South Central Los Angeles gang members into his church, which now has 25,000 members in twelve cities nationwide; those same Crips and Bloods have shown up at the Gay Pride parades Bean has organized with U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters. And he has courageously devoted his time and energy to spurring black civil rights leaders to address the AIDS health crisis within the African American community—an issue on which they had been silent. Preaching an all-embracing progressive theology, he is an outspoken practitioner of brotherly love, a dynamic preacher, and a social activist. The Unity Fellowship message is grace: "God is love, and God is for everyone"; "God is gay, God is straight, God is black, God is white." I Was Born This Way is the rare personal history of one of black gospel’s biggest stars and a frank, powerful, and warmhearted testament to how one man found his calling.

Do you believe you were born gay and had no choice in the matter? Or do you struggle with gay or lesbian desires; or perhaps wrestle with sexual sin? Or are you a Christian who harbors the secret of sexual sin and have been too afraid to confess this sin so that God can set your free from such bondage? The author of this book, “No, I Was Not Born Gay!” understands your dilemma. The Holy Spirit has inspired Author Jay Hudson, by the grace of God, to speak the truth of God to all nations. This writing is not meant to be a “warm fuzzy feeling” read and some may even be offended. Nonetheless, Jay has been led by God to tell the truth to all people in these last days concerning sexual sin (homosexuality in particular). God has also anointed Jay to be God’s mouthpiece to help those who want to find (and experience) freedom in Christ.

People worked hard, back then, to promote themselves as they believed they should be. Norman Rockwell, then Ozzie and Harriet, depicted Godlike behaviors and values that we continue to admire. However the hurt and loneliness endured by the fat girl, the oddball, the foreigner or the village idiot was largely ignored. Hopefully, they didn't live on our block. Few of us can attain Rockwellian Ideals. We're born with powerful and indelible compulsions. The flesh is weak and failure to achieve the ideal can result in the worst kinds of hypocracy. Pretending to be something we aren't causes damage to ourselves and to others as well. We've all heard stories about explosive consequences of passion denied. This book is about one man's fight to be kind to others, true to himself, yet achieve normalcy in a world with little tolerance for those who are, somehow, "queer".

This is the English version of the original in Portuguese (2017): “Nasci Mãe de Santo - A maravilhosa história da Yalorixá Mãe Senhora de Umbanda, Sacerdotisa de Z A M B Y” (ISBN 978-85-924121-0-4). The book is a tribute to Mãe Senhora de Umbanda, in her extremely rare condition as Yalorixá Priestess of Z A M B Y, Consecrated by the Most High, Daughter of Ogum Quebramar and Yansã Guaracyara, Leaders Orixás of the Tenda de Umbanda Morada dos Orixás. It describes her beautiful trajectory in Umbanda in this reincarnation (1930-2015), preceded that was by her Consecration by the HIGHEST - hence the title “I was born Mother of Saint”, with emphasis on her total adoration to the CREATOR, as the faithful and discreet servant, and her greater mission, given by Our Father OXALÁ - and fulfilled with praise, to carry the Love of Our Lord JESUS to the depths of the Abyss. Preliminarily to this description, covered in Part II of the book, it is made a contextualization in relation to Umbanda, as detailed in Part I, in which is given emphasis to the Meaning, Origin and Organization of UMBANDA, including related themes, such as religious syncretism, evolution of spirits, Umbral and Quimbanda. The gestation of the book dates back to the 1980s, when the author, Laerte do Cachoeira, was honored by Yansã Guaracyara with the mission of one day writing it, as Yobá of Yansã ('The Eyes of Yansã'). Throughout this period, records were made of guidelines and revelations made by the Orixás and the People of Exu when incorporated in Mãe Senhora de Umbanda during the giras (sessions) in the Terreiro, as well as testimonies made by Mãe Senhora, in addition to recordings in audios and videos, which were compiled and organized after her passage. The records that were selected and included in the book are duly referenced, either in the body of the text or in footnotes. Everything else in the book, although it expresses the author's own thought, it is his conviction that mirrors all guidance and help received from the Orixás and the Exu People, under the command of Ogum Quebramar and Yansã Guaracyara, for the elaboration of this tribute from the Tenda de Umbanda Morada dos Orixás to its Beloved Yalorixá. It is important to note that, in line with the Statutes of the Tenda de Umbanda Morada dos Orixás, this book will not be sold, either in part or in whole. To this end, the book, including all attachments, with photos, audios and videos, is being freely available on the internet (for unrestricted public access) at . However, it is requested that eventual quotes are properly referenced. Laerte do Cachoeira Yobá of Yansã December 4th, 2020

The first novel to appear in English by one of the most talked-about and critically acclaimed writers of new Mexican fiction. From a psychoanalyst's couch, the narrator looks back on her bizarre childhood—in which she was born with an abnormality in her eye into a family intent on fixing it. In a world without the time and space for innocence, the narrator intimately recalls her younger self—a fierce and discerning girl open to life’s pleasures and keen to its ruthless cycle of tragedy. With raw language and a brilliant sense of humor, both delicate and unafraid, Nettel strings together hard-won, unwieldy memories—taking us from Mexico City to Aix-en-Provence, France, then back home again—to create a portrait of the artist as a young girl. In these pages, Nettel’s art of storytelling transforms experience into inspiration and a new startling perception of reality. "Nettel's eye…gives rise to a tension, subtle but persistent, that immerses us in an uncomfortable reality, disquieting, even disturbing—a gaze that illuminates her prose like an alien sun shining down on our world." —Valeria Luiselli, author of Sidewalks and Faces in the Crowd "It has been a long time since I've found in the literature of my generation a world as personal and untransferable as that of Guadalupe Nettel." —Juan Gabriel Vásquez, author of The Sound of Things Falling "Nettel reveals the subliminal beauty within beings…and painstakingly examines the intimacies of her soul." —Magazine Littéraire “Guadalupe Nettel’s storytelling power is majestic."—Typographical Era In Praise of Natural Histories "Five flawless stories..." —The New York Times “Nettel’s stories are as atmospheric and emotionally battering as Checkhov’s.”—Asymptote
