Event: Grab a copy of Threesome and help spread HIV awareness

Vivid expressions and creative writing do not just amuse and entertain, real-life extraordinary experiences move mountains and influence minds.
Being a fan of gay literature and a teacher of creative writing, I joined the launch of "Threesome" - three books from renowned gay bloggers at The Room, Quezon City July 10,2010.
Chronicle of E is a memoir of E’s substance addiction and acceptance of his HIV status.
The Wet Book: Stories from the Bathhouse is an insider’s account as narrated by ad executive by day, hygiene establishment patron and comic by night McVie.
Dear Migs: Letters to Manila Gay Guy is from the popular blog’s community  (with more than 40,000 daily views all over the world)an anthology of experiences of frustration and brokenheartedness, a type of Margarita Holmes-wannabe in the world of gays and not.
All three authors signed autographs of the books grabbed by the participants of the event.
The stories from the closet are out and soon to be availed in famous bookstores nationwide.
Why get a copy? Because it pays to not just know and experience a world not your own but because the experiences will lead you to awareness not just of homosexuality and sex-related diseases such as HIV but of real-life meaningful memoirs to make you appreciate yours.
In the world of buff muscles and good-looks, the straight women would always sigh in frustration why they all have to be gays. This reaction, ordinary of a straight woman would need more reading of the Threesome book to fully appreciate a world different from our own. A world not really different because relationships and sexual activities are similar but a world more filled with circumstances I truly salute the gays for handling and coping. These books need international recognition for its sense of writing style and content. 
I'd soon include the Threesome books as reference to my creative writing students.They all have to learn from the books not just creative writing style, choices of words and choice of content, but HIV awareness and gender sensitivity to be better writers in the future.
Threesome book was published by Grey Matter Publishing in cooperation with RockEd and the Safety Series for HIV awareness. Grab a copy here at http://www.mybookstore.ph.
