"Ex-Gay therapy is both ineffective and traumatizing and often leaves wounds which may feel impossible to heal. Until now, there were few books that offered hope for people who have endured this torture and brainwashing. In Ex-gay, No Way, Jallen Rix shares his inspiring story, the path that leads out of self-loathing and depression." --Darren Main, author of Hearts & Minds: Talking to Christians about Homosexuality

This second novel by Lambda Literary Award finalist is an incendiary story about two pyromaniacs who fight homophobia in Krakow, Poland.

Driven by rage, sexual curiosity and Pink Floyd, lovers will buck church, government and the LGBT community to find sexual freedom.
