Stephen Earley Jordan Ii's "Beyond Bougie" transcends race with dynamic creative nonfiction, essays and poetry. Many selections challenge modern perceptions of race, class, and gender, such as ". . . On Male Self-Image," an essay revealing eating disorders and narcissism as male disorders, and "How it Feels to be a Vanderbilt," a brief account of material slavery to name brand clothing. Other selections, such as "Why (K)not?" and "Bukkake: A Love Story," capture the macabre vulnerability rooted in all humans through true tales of extreme dominance, subservience and betrayal. In "Let's Keep This on the Downlow," Jordan explores the preconceived theory that the phenomenon of gay males being married to women is not just a Black issue, but is portrayed as such by the media in order to effeminize the Black male because society is intimidated by him. "Beyond Bougie" is a call to action, requesting that none of us ever accept less than our full potential.

"I write about real life people and our uncomfortable circumstances. People rarely want to talk about these issues. But we must recognize these issues if we want to progress in life. This is why I write."About the Author:
West Virginia native, Stephen Earley Jordan II, graduated from private Baptist-affiliated Alderson-Broaddus College in 1999, where he earned a BA in Writing; and a BA in Literature. Soon after graduation, he enrolled into graduate-level courses studying writing and educational research. After a year of graduate studies, Stephen moved to New York City with faith that he would become established as a writer and editor.
Landing his first New York City job as a financial editor on Wall Street, he established lists of freelance clients offering short- and long-term writing/editing consultations to education publishers and universities, travel magazines, encyclopedias, websites, and various pharmaceutical advertising agencies. "I see myself as an educator, even though I don't teach in a classroom," Stephen says. "Editing and writing allows me to educate my readers of our own deep-rooted hidden agendas, whether it's with my creative writing, nonfiction, or poetry. I write about real life people and our uncomfortable circumstances. People rarely want to talk about these issues. But we must recognize these issues if we want to progress in life. This is why I write." Stephen Earley Jordan II currently works as a copyeditor and resides in Bronx, New York
