Stories of Courage and Resilience

from the GenPride Community

A Riveting Testimony to the Power of Personal Storytelling 

In their gripping anthology, fourteen LGBTQIA midlife and older adults share the struggles and triumphs that shaped their lives. Some stories delve into issues that have marked their generation: AIDS, gender identity, sexuality, persecution, and claiming one’s self. Others grapple with health, family, loss, addiction, and love. Unmuted is about heartbreak and courage, strength, and resilience.

Available in print, digital print, and audio book formats!
