Writing Naked, A Memoir shares my past through vignettes about my family, significant other, friends and the love we shared through life's ups and downs. This memoir touches upon the predicament that my family and I faced after our voluntary exile to the United States of America after the 1986 Philippine EDSA Revolution because of my father's involvement in the Marcos administration as a military officer. It examines the difficulties of adjusting to a new society and diminished socioeconomic status. It offers insight on the difficulties of immigration and how ultimately the place I had made my home could easily be taken away as I am faced with the possibility of deportation. I hope to give readers the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and relate to mine as they read about my coming out and my family's acceptance of who I truly am. I hope to inspire other gay men to embrace who they are and hopefully learn from my mistakes and of those around me. This memoir will bring forward the issue of immigration laws and gay marriage and the people it affects. It will also serve as an opportunity for readers to closely examine their safe sex practices and serve as a warning for those who are careless. Writing Naked, A Memoir is an inspiring story of love, loss, hope, family and acceptance in our society today.
