Small Town Gay
Logan Lee is a traveling nurse who grew up gay in the small, fictional town of “Mercer” Kentucky. With a big heart and a penchant for creative storytelling, he shares his early childhood experiences tiptoeing through life in a southern community that didn’t embrace his identity. In his breakout memoir Small Town Gay, Lee invites his readers to experience the beautiful southern culture of central Kentucky, his family’s interesting dynamics, his love for rich food, and his discovery in third grade and beyond that “he likes boys, not girls.” Lee believes that all love is good love, and we all deserve to be exactly who we are, even if we don’t fit in with the norm. Having learned to be an advocate for himself, Lee now encourages others in the LGBTQ+ community to do the same. When he’s not writing, he’s on the move, working with critical care patients throughout the United States.
Central Kentucky is known for cornfields, blue-ribbon sows, industrial sites, and tractor parades. In the summer, families sip sweet tea on the porch beneath lavender sunsets and watch the sun go down. Every fried chicken supper hits the spot, and cafes off the beaten path give patrons reason to sing karaoke and come alive with their kin. For those cut from the cloth of prior generations, central Kentucky provides the quintessential small-town experience—stay in church, graduate, go to work on the farm, marry young, own a home, build a family, repeat. For the other ones, who desire an alternate route, dream beyond the fold, reject societal norms and hold progressive opinions, Mercer can be challenging. For a once closeted gay, like Logan Lee, the tiny, conservative corner of his hometown presents an opportunity to transcend and forgive cultural expectations, and probe readers to be open-minded. In his breakout memoir Small Town Gay, Lee shares his experience of reconciling his sexuality at a young age, with no like role models to look to for guidance. With a heart for education, he strives to be that example for the next generation, by inviting children, parents, and allies of the LGBTQ+ community to unify in the name of voice, tolerance, unconditional love, and above all things—home.
Probably Millenials and younger who are interested in LGBTQ+ stories. The book is clean, but provides a lot of opportunity for those who have felt different to laugh and relate. It's a comedic memoir, and not too serious.
Book cover type
Small Town Gay is a lighthearted and short memoir about the trials of the author's realization that he was different from the other boys. His childhood was pure Southern, simple and nice with no real drama. The cover should reflect some fun with a Southern charm.
