Long out-of-print, this novella is Ganymede´s life story - unapologetic in its ribald details of Greek gods in disguise, trying to seduce the most beautiful youth in the Ancient world. When a prince of Troy is born with perfect proportions, not only does every man he meets desire him, but the Immortals want him as their lover. Ganymede loses his virginity to Hermes at 12, at 14 he captures the attention of Ares and Apollo...can Zeus be next? This risqué tale, narrated by acclaimed storyteller Jason Frazier, will appeal to all who have wondered how one boy stepped out of myth to become a gay icon. 1. Language: English.

´´Your birth is a revolution. You chose to be born like this.´´ Tired of the closet lifestyle, arranged marriages, (dis)honor(able) killings happening all around me, in the UK I decided to do something about it. Guys I knew or had dated were marrying someone of the opposite sex, fueling up on drug induced sex orgies, or selling themselves on Grindr to find validation whilst suffocating with shame. The guilt and shame of being gay and South Asian. Yes, for LGBTI people of color, the story is still the same. Stuck in archaic times, families hold on to izaat (honor), societal pressure, and the need to conform. So I turned to spirituality for solace. After a yoga teacher´s course, life coaching certificates, and many grueling silent meditation retreats later I felt like myself again. And that´s when I decided to write Bollywood Gay, a revolutionary, fiery, and necessary bible for those wanting an authentic life. The book has an activist slant, urging people first to sort their own issues before moving onto the bigger task of bringing LGBTI rights in South Asia. It is based on the Law of Attraction principles, with each chapter finishing with an action sheet, intended to dive into the mind, to allow the listener to pierce through blockages, limiting beliefs, feelings, goals, and desires. Do you want the man of your dreams? Do you want to come out to your family? Do you want to live a happier life? All the action sheets will spearhead you on to that effect. The book aims to be positive, motivational, inspirational, and eye opening. I want to remove the years of self-victimization and external blame so you can reclaim your inner power. I want you to realize that you are the change and can do it in an instant with each and every thought, feeling, and word you use. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Manjinder Singh Sidhu.

Susan Mizruchi presents the Marlon Brando you’ve never met. When people think about Marlon Brando they think of the movie star; the hunk; the scandals. Susan L. Mizruchi finds the Brando others have missed: the man who collected 4,000 books; the man who rewrote scripts, trimming his lines to make them sharper; the man who consciously used his body and employed the objects around him to create believable characters; the man who used his fame to foster Indian and civil rights. From Brando’s letters, audiotapes, and annotated screenplays and books - many never before available - Mizruchi gives us a complex person whose intelligence belies the high-school dropout. She shows how Brando’s embrace of foreign cultures and outsiders led to brilliant performances in unusual roles - a gay man, an Asian, and a German soldier - to foster empathy on a global scale and to test himself. In portraying a fuller Brando, Mizruchi portrays an even more fascinating man. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dina Pearlman.

With his infectious energy and charisma, Gok Wan has an incredible gift of making women feel more confident within themselves - but it’s not until you listen to his own inspirational story that you find out where he got that gift from. Gok grew up on a Leicester housing estate, with a loving family who ran a Chinese restaurant. For his parents, food meant love – and Gok was so well loved that by the time he was a teenager he weighed 21 stone. Being Asian and gay as well, Gok felt lonely and out of place. He was an easy target for bullies and suffered terribly at their hands. In a moment of inspiration, he decided to reinvent himself with his first style makeover and a larger-than-life personality to go with it. But his next move was to lose a devastating ten stone in nine months. In Through Thick and Thin, for the first time, Gok reveals all about that life-changing period. The lessons Gok learnt during this time helped him bounce back to become a stylist to the stars, every woman’s best friend, and a national treasure. In this intimate memoir, Gok tells his full story in his own words. Whether he’s recounting the horrors of childhood bullying or riotous anecdotes about his loving family, or describing what it is like behind the scenes in the fashion world or TV shows, Gok’s voice comes through with all the honesty, witm and warmth we’ve come to know and love him for.

Even well-intended people can cause harm! Have you ever heard yourself or someone else say: ´´Some of my best friends are...(Black, White, Asian, etc.)´´? or ´´I don´t think of you as...(Gay, Disabled, Jewish, etc.)´´? or ´´I don´t see color, I´m colorblind´´?
