Inflexible Religion, Sexual Orientation and Controversial Reparative Treatments Clash in Author’s Second Novel

Is homosexuality part of a person’s inherent nature or is it a choice. Is it identity, or merely behavior? Can it be cured? Should a cure be imposed? Are extreme measures like hypnosis, drugs, aversion therapy and shock treatments acceptable methods? Does devotion to rigid theological beliefs matter more than parental love?

New LGBTQ Novel Features Asexual SidekickStephanie Siberstein


Raleigh, NC—September 1, 2010


LGBTQ suicide prevention activist Stephanie Silberstein’s latest novel, Shades of Gay, will feature an asexual teenager as the protagonist’s best friend, Narrow Path Publishing announced today. The character does not experience sexual attraction but does have strong desires for emotional intimacy.


Silberstein chose to include asexuality to illustrate the difficulties non-heterosexual youth face from a different perspective as well as show that asexuality is normal. “Asexuals face just as much social pressure as other non-heterosexuals, especially in high school,” Silberstein says. “They are expected to be interested in sex, or at the very least be curious about it; otherwise people assume something’s wrong with them. I wanted to include an asexual teen in Shades of Gay to show that asexuals are just like other teens except they don’t experience sexual attraction.”
