'Crisis,' featuring PFLAG's Jody Huckaby

On September 1, Mitchell Gold, founder of Faith in America, will release a new book featuring stories of lesbian and gay Americans who have faced obstacles and overcome barriers in their own coming out journeys.

Crisis: 40 Stories Revealing the Personal, Social and Religious Pain and Trauma of Growing Up Gay in America, features personal essays from some of America's most well-known LGBT faces, including Ari Gold, Nate Berkus, Candance Gingrich, Billy Bean and PFLAG's executive director, Jody Huckaby. Jody, whose family story was profiled last year on Oprah, writes about his experience growing up, and coming out, in rural Louisiana as part of a large, Catholic family.
