Raymond and Me
This courageous and lyrical memoir chronicles the challenges of growing up gay in the seventies and eighties in Toronto, and how the enchanting discovery of first love can change the shape of a person’s life.
Homophobia had robbed Dan of any hope of finding a man to fall in love with…until he met Raymond. It was love at first sight. Though their relationship was not without its challenges from the outside world, time and time again, love prevailed.
Dan spent years going to great lengths to conceal every part of that relationship, living in the closet, and holding close the memories of his first relationship. But over time, he realized that he wanted to share their story. The heartfelt love they shared is a beacon of hope and reminder to everyone that love can win out over hatred.
