Pushing On:Appalachian Resiliency in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered People

Gay and Appalachian: The Shaky High Wire Between Subcultures
Jeff Mann, noted Appalachian poet and writer, will provide narrative and poetry to examine the struggles gay Appalachian men face attempting to balance gay love with Southern and Appalachian regional tradition, as well as the constraints a gay couple faces when their public affection might provoke danger in a homophobic region. Mann's selected poems attempt to locate gay relationships within the larger Appalachian contexts of attachment to land and to family and to discuss the way in which Appalachian gay men remain, in some ways, perpetual outsiders.
