"God's Black Porsche: Dating Stories from NYC's Gay Catholics & Christians" is a collection of dating stories shared by members of the NYC Gay Catholics, Christians & Friends Social Group (LGBTQ). In NYC, like most major cities, if you do not know who you are by the time you get here, there will be plenty of folks who will tell you who you should be. For many of us that come here with the deep-rooted faith, beliefs, and values we grew up with, it is a constant struggle to keep our focus and balance on what’s inside our souls – which includes both our LGBTQ sexuality and our faith. In our upbringing as Catholics and Christians, things that we accepted as “given” in any future relationships, straight or gay, will often face the powerful challenge and pressures of the city’s loud groupthink mentality. Some of us are fortunate to have the support and guidance of LGBTQ-friendly spiritual leaders (priests, ministers, brothers, nuns, family, friends, etc.), but for the majority of us – that will not be the case. These stories are not meant to make a judgment on anyone’s choices or dating styles and they are not meant as lessons, but simply as shared life experiences. Our hope is that some or all of the stories shared in this collection might be of some help to other Gay Catholics and Christians in their own self-discovery and spiritual journeys. Too many of us have come here with an open heart, soul and mind, but have become “jaded” thru our misguided attempts at trying to “fit in” versus having the dating scene fit into our own beliefs, and values. Earnings from the distribution of this collection will go to fund the on-going operations, events and community initiatives of the NYC Gay Catholics, Christians & Friends Social Group.
