This month we will have an open discussion on Boys and Oil: Growing Up Gay in a Fractured Land by Taylor Brorby.
Taylor Brorby was Carroll University's Founders' Day Convocation Speaker. His keynote speech was titled, "The Extractive Story: Queerness, Climate Change, and Getting a College Education."
“I am a child of the American West, a landscape so rich and wide that my culture trembles with terror before its power.” So begins Taylor Brorby’s Boys and Oil, a haunting, bracingly honest memoir about growing up gay amidst the harshness of rural North Dakota, “a place where there is no safety in a ravaged landscape of mining and fracking.”
