President Obama's landmark endorsement of same-sex marriage on 9 May has mobilized a wave of Christian conservatives into supporting the likely GOP nominee, Mitt Romney. With more than 30 US states banning same-sex marriage and North Carolina's recent approval of a constitutional amendment forbidding it, sexual equality continues to be topical in the news and on the political stage. At the heart of this debate is the 3.8% of Americans who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender*, who struggle to grow and make a life for themselves amidst such turmoil.

Patience: A Gay Man's Virtue invites readers to experience the trials, tribulations, and successes that members of this invisible minority go through in a world that is not quite ready to accept people for who they truly are. Author La Lumiere imparts sage advice to minorities and non-minorities alike and begins to bridge the gap between fear and reality in the ongoing fight for equality in the twenty-first century. Readers will laugh and cry as they journey through this heartfelt and candid story of one man's triumph over hatred and bigotry. Not just a survival guide for young adults, Patience: A Gay Man's Virtue offers individuals guidance on how to find their own way and live a life of honesty for themselves and their loved ones.

Patience: A Gay Man's Virtue is available for purchase online at FriesenPress, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the author's website at http://www.jedlalumiere.com. It is also available for order through most bookstores.
