Voices of LGBQT+:
A Conversation Starter for Understanding, Supporting, and Protecting Gay, Bi, Trans, and Queer People

Why do so many in our modern society reject those who are different?

Though the mainstream acceptance of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Queer community has made leaps and bounds over the past few years, many pivotal groups within our modern society still respond to the LGBTQ+ community with an overwhelming, knee-jerk reaction of “us” vs. “them.” Despite the progress that has been made, misunderstanding, hatred, animosity, aggression, and violence still affect this community on a deep level. Lynda Wolters knows firsthand: a strong ally, she has come to know, understand, and have a deep respect for the community through her son, who is gay.

Including highly personal, real-world anecdotes, Voices of LGBTQ+ helps outline some of the most critical challenges the community faces today, with topical insights into:

  • Homelessness
  • Hate crimes
  • Suicide
  • Economic challenges
  • Discrimination and lack of equality
  • Religious and biblical conflicts

Though judgment and divisiveness still run deep in our society, Wolters highlights the first key distinction, among many others, that will help eradicate bigotry: those who are different are not choosing to be, they simply are, and it’s our differences that make us stronger. Voices of LGBTQ+ helps educate, dispel fears, and start positive conversations about what knowing, loving, or simply peacefully and positively coexisting with someone in the LGBTQ+ community really means. After all, there is no “us” vs. “them.” We are all human.


Voices of Cancer:
What We Really Want, What We Really Need

Insights for Patients and the People Supporting Them

Every cancer story is different, but there is one commonality: both patients and the people supporting them often struggle to properly articulate their wants and needs through particularly challenging—and in many cases, uncharted—territory.

Voices of Cancer helps validate patients’ feelings and thoughts, as well as offering guidance to those supporting them, through lessons learned from the inevitable “cancer shift” in perspective that occurs post-diagnosis. This book contains insight that can help those on all walks of their journey:

  • Focus on what is really important
  • Find joy in the small things
  • Begin to accept physical, mental, and emotional changes
  • Vocalize the need for support and the acceptance of reality
  • Learn to live beyond the diagnosis
