Equality: Now More Than Ever!

Hi, and welcome to my short GR blog. It's been a while but I have plenty to say.

When theater critic, Charles Isherwood, at the New York Times writes on New Year's Day, January 1, 2017, the following:

"The recent election season has illustrated, in sometimes lurid colors, that not all Americans feel that all Americans are equal, and that misogyny, racism and homophobia continue to exist, hiding in plain sight or not."

And when the edit team at Lambda Literary review reports that "the white supremacist Milo Yiannopoulos, notorious for his misogynistic, transphobic, homophobic, and racist rants, announced he had signed a $250,000 book deal with the Simon and Schuster imprint Threshold Editions"...

it's time to speak up. And that's just what we did.

On MLK Day, this month, Vine Leaves Press in Melbourne, Australia, will release our latest anthology, Equality: What Do You Think About When You Think Of Equality? Equality What Do You Think About When You Think of Equality? by Paul Alan Fahey

In Equality, twenty-five authors tackle the theme of Equality and run with it in surprising directions. These thought provoking, funny, and compelling essays probe a concept professed to be the very foundation of our
democracy—a concept that may be even more vital today than in the past.

(And believe me, it is.)

Contributing authors are Barbara Abercrombie, Anne R. Allen, Christopher Bram, ‘Nathan Burgoine,
Rob Byrnes, David Congalton, Larry Duplechan, Eldonna Edwards, Jewelle Gomez, Lisa Horan,
Catherine Ryan Hyde, Barbara Jacksha, Michael McMahon, Jeff Mann, Michael Nava, Dennis Palumbo,
Anne Perry, Felice Picano, Mara Purl, Susan Reynolds, Jeffrey Ricker, Michael Rupured, Baxter Clare
Trautman, and Victoria Zackheim.

Shortly, I'll be posting to Medium.com a short excerpt of my essay from the book. I hope you'll take a look.

Equality. We need it now more than ever.

The best is yet to come. Believe it.

Warmly,

Paul
