At last! Launch of Dave Belrose's Memoir. Answering a Different Call. My (Queer) Thunder Bay Life

Launch: September 14. Waverley Library. 7 pm.

I heard about this book last winter and at last, here it is. Dave writes:The development of gay and HIV/AIDS community work in Thunder Bay is part of a social history that needs to be remembered. Having been part of the process, my hope is that this autobiographical memoir will be a contribution to that history.”  Introduction

 “With a life that has explored the integration of sexuality and spirituality, David Belrose shares his experience as a seeker and activist in his home community of Thunder Bay. This book offers a personal look at aspects of social history of the city, with a particular focus on the evolution of the LGBT community and the impact of AIDS. Military experience, travel, gay organizing, HIV/AIDS advocacy, theatre, Buddhist meditation, and Unitarian Universalist community combine in a unique look at a personal journey through life.” From the cover.

Come out to hear excerpts from the book, buy (cash or cheque only) and/or get books signed, enjoy refreshments, and talk with the author.
