Can a teenage brotha continue to live a debilitating existence or will he take a chance and BREATHE?
This is not a down low (DL) story like Asante Kahari's Homothug or J.L. King's On The Down Low. It is a realistic portrayal of a young black male's experience 'coming out' in an urban environment and facing his judgmental and homophobic family, friends, and community. At its core, this novella is a human story about self-respect, pride, acceptance, and survival.
BREATHE is a masterfully written work where Blair's own creative voice blends the literary styles of E. Lynn Harris and James Earl Hardy.
If you are ready to BREATHE, visit Blair R. Poole's website at
