About the Book
By Kinyatta Gray
How many times have you felt invisible in a room full of people? How many masks have you worn to hide your true identity? How many heterosexual relationships did you engage in pretending to be in love? What was your biggest fear when finally letting your family and friends know, you are a beautiful feminine lesbian?
Passing As “Straight: Beautiful Women Whose True Sexuality Went Undetected by a Judgmental Society, compiled by Author Kinyatta Gray, brings to life a book that takes a deep look into the individual, personal and complex stories of lesbians whose true sexuality went undetected to prevent labeling, judgment, or even death. Six courageous women will share real life situations where they had to make the dreadful decision of hiding their sexual identify to find acceptance, respect, and love from those who truly matter.
This book is not meant to define who’s right or wrong, but rather examine this very real issue and the choices that lesbian women must make about love! Our intention is to provide a heartfelt resource for women who wake up daily having to navigate through a society pretending and hiding who they really are. You are not alone! We all have been there! But, as you read through these pages, you will find the comfort and strength to know exactly how to live unapologetically and uniquely who you are.
