Accepting Each Other and Ourselves
Adam Mastroianni was raised in a typical Italian-American community and had a fine family and many friends. However, he had a secret that he hid. This is his story and his journey to understanding his own sexuality, the struggles he faced coming out to his loved ones, and his conflicts with religion and morality. It is a story about being honest and true to oneself while at the same time dealing with the prejudices of the surrounding culture. Mastroianni shares with us the process that he went through to deal with these prejudices especially those that forced him to believe that the could not be both gay and Christian. He challenges us to call for
human equality and to know unconditional love. The author is passionate about making this world a better place and asks us to join him in doing so.
