I really looking forward to picking up a copy of E. Patrick Johnson's book Pouring Tea: Black Gay Men of the South Tell Their Stories. Johnson interviewed several black gay men from this region and turned their stories into this book. Then he came to realization that he may be able to better retell their stories by way of dramatic interpretation. He has now turned his book into a one man show of the same name. Growing up in Alabama I'm sure I'm familiar with many of these stories. I'm excited about this next read.

By all means get this book, it is one of the best reads I have had in a long time and I got it when it first came out! Long, but, each and every story tells it like it is and as a black gay man, you'll be able to relate to all them, and, once you start it, you'll find time to finish it in a week, at least I did.
