"Perez is certainly not the first writer to try to find a unique mixture of alternate sexuality and religiosity, but his memoir has the heat and immediacy of the blog from which it developed. As Perez comes to terms with illness, loneliness, and the spirit, he also shows us a part of the future of reading and publishing—the voyeuristic thrills of blog diaries and a continual dialog between print and electronic media."—Library Journal

“Soulfully Gay is a work of passionate spiritual intelligence, a thoroughly contemporary expression of what mystics call the completely open, questioning mind that is essential to the discovery of inner divinity. That Perez is gay in a time when major religions systematically depreciate gay persons and their spirituality is in itself a major gift of Spirit to our confused world. It is a gift of love from which all can benefit.”—Jim Marion, author of Putting on the Mind of Christ

“An author of unstoppable courage, Joe Perez is unafraid to question any and all assumptions about spirituality, sexuality, homosexuality, and himself, writing with probing analysis and common sense. Soulfully Gay is a brave act of self-examination and self-revelation as well as a valuable addition to the growing body of literature that explores the spiritual meaning of same-sex love. To read Perez’s journal is to accompany him on his spiritual journey.”—David Carter, author of Stonewall: The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution
