Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia Giveaway

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience.

Welcome!  I am a participant in the Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia. Don’t forget to visit all of the other participants in this hop by viewing the list at the bottom of this post.  The event runs from May 17-24, 2014.  
This blog hop was created to coincide with the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. Both events are activism tools to raise awareness in the fight against homophobia and transphobia.  In participating in this hop,  and if you choose to visit the IDAHOT Website, it is my hope that you will be inspired to spread messages of equality and love.   To celebrate both of these events, I am sharing a personal message with all of my readers, in addition to sponsoring a giveaway (details below).  


I am a ManLove erotic romance author for Siren-BookStrand Publishing and LGBTQ rights activist.  
Through my activism, I support a variety of social and humanitarian programs. My desire is to provide a voice for those fighting to maintain their humanity, civil liberties, civil rights, and human rights. We are all one.
As a long supporter of  the LGBTQ community, I was thrilled to be able to reflect this in the publication of my books that explore the lives of gay men in real situations of life and love. My writing proves that love and erotic attraction are the same regardless of gender and/or sexual orientation.
For those of you have read my coming out story, you know that I am a gay transgender man. In that message, I gave a brief overview of my life. From my earliest memory as a child, that was my gender identity and sexual orientation. Growing up, this lead to a great deal of confusion and gender dysphoria. At seventeen, as a result of those feelings, I began to plan my own suicide. Two days before the planned event, a man walked into my life that changed everything forever. That sweet and flamboyant gay male,John Jericho, became my partner. John and I committed when I was 18, and have been together for over 20 years.  We have two children.  While meeting this remarkable man changed my life, it also humbled me in many ways.
My partner and I did not come out until years later, in September, 2013. At that time, we were met with a great deal of support and love from family and friends. However, we have also experienced the pain of homophobia and transphobia.
While many transgender individuals have found support and caring, there are those who continue to face challenges daily. Many are met with harassment and discrimination because of a lack of education concerning the understanding of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. As a result, transgender individuals often experience workplace discrimination, harassment in other social settings, difficulty receiving adequate health care, and a generalized lack of adequate support systems for many basic human needs. These cycles leave many transgender individuals vulnerable to violence and abuse.
Not only should we remember the negative effects of homophobia and transphobia today, but every day, as efforts are made to raise awareness of issues facing all LGBTQ individuals. 


akk-rs-rockhard3As part of my giveaway, I am sponsoring one e-book copy of my book Rock Hard, Book 1 in the Rock Stars series.  Rock Hard is a M/M/M/M/M erotic romance with content for mature readers only.

[Siren Allure ManLove: Erotic Alternative Multiple Partner Romance, M/M/M/M/M, intersex hero, cross-dressing, consensual BDSM elements, sex toys, HEA for M/M/M/M]
Adam Cole, David (Deuce) Cole, L.T. Jamison, and Jamie Cain, members of an ’80s-style glam band, Rock Hard, are struggling with Deuce’s alcohol addiction. The substance abuse is not only threatening the band’s success, but the marriages that he shares with each man.  The closeness and sense of family that the band has experienced with Deuce has now turned into dysfunctional chaos.
So when band physician, Dr. Zane Foster, discusses an agreement with the group, front man Adam Cole cannot refuse. After all, it has to be out of love that Adam would agree to such a deal. Not only is Deuce struggling with his own secrets, drinking most days to the point of intoxication, but Adam reveals a hidden attraction that only adds to the tension building within the band.
Rock Hard explores intimacy, unconditional love, and trust in the face of emotional heartbreak.
