Publisher Description

Krista Doyle grew up in a small town in Louisiana where everyone was a gossip and a devout church goer. She attended church every Sunday where she listened to her grandfather preach from the stage, where she sang hymns from the audience as her mother led the choir, and where she was strictly taught that everything was black and white, right and wrong. So—how was Krista to cope with being a lesbian? 

Does this Bible Belt Make Me Look Gay? is Krista’s retelling of her journey from her straight-and-narrow childhood in small-town Louisiana to her rough-and-tumble adulthood, spent mostly in the glittery land of Los Angeles where she found God at the Cheesecake Factory and shed countless tears at lesbian bars because a stranger attacked her with an unwanted kiss (it was only her second time kissing a woman!). 

It’s a brief, honest, and clever memoir penned in the hopes that the author's story might provide comfort and insight to those suffering through similar situations—to those wondering if God had just made them “incorrectly,” as Krista once questioned herself.

Great Piece of Art

I enjoyed the humor of this book. Krista found a creative & simple way to complete something that was very complex for her. I enjoyed the translation of your journey and how she's living her truths. Great Read! Makes me proud to be a native of Oakdale! Small town folks can do big things!

A great, quick, honest, humorous, uplifting read.

Just a few hours after downloading this book, I'm all done with it. And what a way to spend my work day. (I work hard.)

If the few mentions of Friends didn't make me feel all cozy reading this, it was the casual nature of the writing. I felt as if I was reading something written by a friend, or at least someone I wish I was friends with.

Being a mostly-straight man didn't keep me from connecting with the stories within, or feeling a closeness to them. This was truly a pleasure to read and I'll likely spend the next few days telling all my friends to read it. And thank you to the author, for sharing.
