It is as a loving protest against these obscene and tragic state of affairs that I conceived this anthology of gay mystics. I wanted everyone - most of all my gay brothers and sisters - to be fully aware that whatever the mullahs and gurus and archbishops and psuedoavatars might say, there is no record of the Divine itself in any way excluding homosexuals from the direct contact with its love, which is offered freely and forever to every sentient being.
