Synopsis:

Benn Setfrey turns the tables and puts the Black community ?on notice? for the sinful often-fatal atrocities that are perpetrated against homosexuals in his new book ?DON?T SHOOT! I?m Coming Out ~ How to Man Up & Set Heterosexuals Straight?. Benn, an African American who has lived a very private life, risks public persecution by ?coming out? to bring you his personal story of love, betrayal, discrimination, and damnation.

In his witty and thought-provoking style, Setfrey confronts the hypocrites, who sit in church every Sunday claiming to be saved while simultaneously condemning every gay man to hell.

Additionally, he shares the Creative Classroom Management Strategies he used while an educator for both Chicago and Milwaukee Public Schools. His tactics will indeed modify student conduct all over the country as he bends the rules by breaking the teacher code of silence. ?If you show me 10 principals; I?ll show you 9 fools. How about No Child, Parent or Teacher Left Behind.?

Don?t Shoot! I?m Coming Out also includes a one-of-a-kind guide for gay men and men who feel trapped in the closet. The guide is not about ?coming out? or being on the down-low; but more about developing a sense of manhood, gaining autonomy, and changing the paradigm on how the world views homosexuals and how homosexuals view themselves

Who will young black gay men turn to for guidance when their fathers turn their backs? We, according to Setfrey, have no MACHO gay role models and no rulebook to follow, but now that?s all about to change.

From the Publisher: "Benn Setfrey's book, "DON'T SHOOT!," touched my soul unlike any other book I've ever read. As a 30-year-old black gay man, I've read many books -- fiction and non-fiction -- written by gay authors who have attempted to strike a cord, but often their books miss the mark.

Benn Setfrey's book hits home because he's willing to reveal his own struggles and he shares with us some of life's lessons he's learned along the way. I'm not willing to honor someone's criticism unless I feel a connection to the source. Benn allows us to connect with him through his personal experiences.

It's amazing to me how we as black gay men go about our own individual lives, either afraid or unwilling to share what bonds us together. Our collective experiences growing up in a world that teaches us loving another man is wrong, is such a strong connection. Unfortunately, many black gay men have bought the hype as we continue to further alienate ourselves from each other.

Tops. Bottoms. Fem. DL. Masculine. Queen. Sure, these are labels, but they have also become the terms that have seeped into the mindset of gay black men and identify who we are. But are those labels all we are? Benn challenges us to go beyond the terms and get at the core of who we are as men. I repeat, MEN.

Many of us have lived parallel lives, yet we are again afraid or unwilling to openly discuss what ultimately is a common bond. In DON'T SHOOT! Benn challenges those notions and causes us to look at ourselves in a way we many of us have not have looked at ourselves before.

  • What does it mean to be a gay black man in America?
  • What responsibility does the older generation have to lead the younger generation?
  • How do you find your soul mate?

I wonder what my life would have been like had I read Benn's book in my teens or twenties? Would I have continued to search for love in all the wrong places? Would I have been empowered to challenge my family's Biblical attacks? Ultimately, I believe the book landed in my hands at the right time."
