Denny Hamann, author, playwright and composer comes to Stonewall Live! Thursday, June 2, 9PM EST
The multi talented Denny Hamann, author of recently published “Purple Grass” will be my guest on Thursday, June 2, 9PM EST.
It is a lot harder being different than it is being like everyone else and I am sure most gay men have gone through a period of feeling that being different meant that we don’t belong. We were like lost sheep eating in a pasture with other who were all the same.
“In Purple Grass, we have a little lamb and in his flock everyone eats green grass. No one is to like, must less eat, purple grass. In fact, it was considered a sin to like purple grass. Our little lamb is an outcast and when he gets lost, he finds himself in darkness. Hamann shows we are all like that little lamb. However the lamb and gay men share something—they both know who they are and even though neither of us is accepted, we find a way to come to terms. We must both agree, though, that being different is very hard. We have to fight for what should be ours and have a hard time understanding why it is not.” –Amos Lassen
Dr. Hamann, also a veterinarian, is also the composer of several musicals that have been performed around the country. We’ll talk to him about “Dream Catcher”, the story of an 8-year-old boy living with HIV who is told he has no future. We’ll hear about his new projects as well as how he lives and works in this incredibly productive environment.
