Mitchell Gold in Hickory

Last Thursday I had the chance to travel up to Hickory, N.C., for Mitchell Gold’s appearance at Lenior-Rhyne University’s Visiting Writers Series. Gold, editor of “CRISIS: 40 Stories Revealing the Personal, Social and Religious Pain and Trauma of Growing up Gay in America,” to which I contributed a chapter, was interviewed on stage by CNN journalist Soledad O’Brien. I’ve got more reflections on the event coming out in my Editor’s Note column with QNotes‘ Feb. 6 print edition.

Until then… here are a few photos from the event, after the jump…
