International author and LGBT advocate Terry Angel Mason has been making local and international headlines since the release of his first book, Love Won't Let Me Be Silent, a gripping tome that offered strategies to help parents, families, ministers, teachers and community leaders effectively understand and support gay teens, young adults, and people infected with HIV/AIDS.
Since his international debut, Mason has sparked worldwide dialogue about pressing issues affecting African Americans and the gay and lesbian community.

The article received numerous responses and led him to being featured in the December issue of Connextion Magazine.
