Wonderful event at The Bookies Bookstore in Denver, Colorado!
Kim O’Reilly visited Bookies on April 6, 2019, for an event featuring her new book: We Love You, But You’re Going to Hell
What a positive wonderful event at The Bookies Bookstore in Denver, Colorado! Such a friendly and welcoming staff.
Attendees were enthusiastic, engaged and affirming of my book’s message of compassion, tolerance, and empathy. So many there that we overflowed into another aisle!
I invited a young gay man to speak after my presentation. He had written an essay to the Archbishop of Denver that went viral on social media. He poignantly wrote about his pain as a Catholic gay teenager when Church leadership promoted conversion therapy at at recent conference for Catholic priests. This young man shared with me how he was impacted by my book. He spoke with such eloquence and heart! Thank you, Johnny, for speaking out on behalf of gay and lesbian teens in churches that still advocate for “praying the gay away.”
