What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It inspired me to write a book about all those fantastic members of the LGTBQ community. They fought so hard during and after the Stonewall Riots, which ultimately impacted my life and so many others. I wasn`t sure if it was a good time to publish the book in times of COVID 19, but then I decided that we all need a reminder that the good almost always wins, and none of us have to be robbed of our happy endings.
Once Upon a Time
Once upon a time, there was a little boy who grew up on a farm in Germany a few years after Stonewall in New York City had happened. And no one could have foreseen that the events of that summer in 1969 would impact his life many years later.
And even if this boy was born after the Stonewall Riots in New York City, he questioned for a long time that fairytale endings did exist for gay people until destiny turned his life upside down.
When most children listen to the good night stories, which their parents read to them before bedtime, then they want to believe that those heroes are out there and that the good always wins. But gay people had to come to the conclusion at a very young age that they were never part of those fairytales in the first place.
And indeed, no prince would find and kiss the male version of the Sleeping Beauty, which would wake up an entire kingdom from a curse, which had lasted for 100 years.
It seemed instead that all those amazing men and other members of the LGBTQ community were living in a cursed world and one day found themselves being trapped in a place where all their happy endings were stolen – our world.
But no matter how dark this world was, there were boys like myself out there, who wanted to believe and who felt that this is how it should have happened for all of us:
