About PLAYHOUSES by Sherry Scott:
Three cousins fiercely defended their roles within the sanctity of their playhouses. But a six-year stint in a fundamentalist religious organization thwarted Scott’s understanding of sexual orientation. Homosexuality was an insidious, infective spirit that conferred fear upon her adolescent naivete, eventually eroding relations between the cousins.
“Reconciling who we were took years, but survival led to relational ties without fear and a heart for activism in the face of rising institutionalized discrimination.”
PLAYHOUSES is a journey from corrosive indoctrination to celebrating the differences in others.
