Hear a remarkable interview with Gail Hovey, writer, editor, activist, and clergy abuse survivor, on “Queer Spirit” for OUT Cast on WMPG community radio (90.0 FM in Portland, Maine) Monday, February 22 at 1:00 p.m. Queer Spirit is a series of conversations exploring queer life and the power of the Sacred. Originally from Illinois and now living outside New York City, Gail Hovey is a recent graduate of the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast Writers program as well as activist for racial, economic, and social justice. She traces her commitments back to East Harlem in the 1960s and when she lived worked in southern Africa. Reflecting on these matters, Gail co-edited No Easy Victories: African Liberation and American Activists Over a Half Century, 1950-2000. Her most recent publication is a memoir entitled She Said God Blessed Us: A Life Marked by Childhood Sexual Abuse in the Church. One reviewer has written: “This book is a gift. . . written with compassion, righteous anger, and deep insight about the turmoil that abuse generates and about the courage and tenacity required to disarm a debilitating curse and claim an authentic blessing.”
