James Stack: Two Days In March
Huffington Post - about 4 years
When will the right-wing conservative coalition and the United States government get out of my bedroom? I didn't invite them in, and God knows I don't want to go into their bedrooms. The right-wing conservative coalition continuously slams LGBT people for "pushing the homosexual agenda" while they are trying to force their agenda on us. I want them to stop! And even more importantly, what business is it of three women and six men who wear black robes to decide whether or not a United States citizen of age has the right to marry another United States citizen of age? Equal protection under the law is already guaranteed under the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution, and the basic rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are guaranteed under the United States Declaration of Independence. So please, get out of my bedroom, home, life. I didn't invite you in, and I want you to go away. It should be noted, in order to be transparent, that I was raised in ...

James Stack: FEARLESS MEMOIR: 'World's Fair' (Chapter 1)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
'World's Fair' is the raw and witty true story of a dysfunctional Southern family's harrowing motor-home roadtrip from South Carolina to the Montreal World's Fair in 1967 (aka "The Summer of Love"). Told from the point of view of the author -- who was 15 at the time -- this intimate coming-of-age story shines a bright light on the issues of alcoholism, adolescent sexual confusion, family violence and the universal need to love those who hurt us, despite their frailties. CHAPTER 1: Metrecal Momma It had been one of those muggy-as-hell July afternoons where you feel like the air is as heavy as a thick, wool trench coat, all scratchy and hot, and all you want to do is rip that damn coat off. Ugh. A really yucky, sticky day where the tar on the road is gooey from the heat and you sink into it when you cross the street. My best friend, Tommy*, and I had been riding around in his momma's Buick Riviera with the air-conditioning blasting on high, listening to rock 'n' roll ...

PROLOGUE, PART 2: Boston, 1977 I put the spatula down and walked, zombie-like, out of my apartment. The birds seemed to be screeching, not chirping. I could hear neighbors in their houses talking and moving about. It was surreal. I knew that all I needed to do was cross the garden area, then cross the alley, and I'd be at Genevieve's*. But it seemed like miles -- an ocean of incredibly loud sounds. Although it was still light out, I had become myopic. My future had always been foggy, but now I seemed to ...
