Product description

Product Description

Larry Kramer wrote this about Extraordinary Hearts, ."A vital moral book about who we are and who should be. I admire it and its author enormously." Extraordinary Hearts is a compilation of 100 short essays published on consecutive weeks in the Metro Weekly gay community magazine of Washington, D.C. between October 2010 and September 2012, a critical period in shaping the national dialogue on LGBT rights. It answers Tony Kushner's call for a "vigorous explorations of how a genuine morality can be introduced into our newly minted freedom." Author Nicholas Benton says, "My perspective is honed from my younger days as a seminary-graduated pioneering gay activist and philosopher-theologian in the earliest Stonewall era of the modern movement."

“A distinguished, prolific journalist collects two years of published essays on the homosexual movement and its historic legacy...The outspoken author believes his writings collectively galvanize ‘a new dialogue on shaping LGBT identity and self-esteem going forward into a new world of equality.’ Readers will come away with much the same sentiment...Benton weaves his own history as an early gay liberation advocate, and his highly intellectual, pioneering nature is evident...Insightful and valid.” —Kirkus Review
