Brontez Purnell: Since I Laid My Burden Down

The latest novel from Brontez Purnell tells the story of DeShawn as he travels from his creative and promiscuous life in San Francisco back to his hometown in Alabama and ponders family, church, and the men in his life.

Brontez Purnell has been publishing, performing, and curating in the Bay Area for over ten years. He is the author of the cult zine Fag School, frontman for his band The Younger Lovers, and founder and choreographer of the Brontez Purnell Dance Company. Formerly a dancer with Gravy Train!!!, a queer electro indie band that gained national prominence in the mid-2000s, Purnell's other prominent artistic collaborations include his supporting role in the queer independent feature film, "I Want Your Love" (dir. Travis Mathews, 2012).

Paperback, 208 pages, 4.8 inches x 8 inches, The Feminist Press, 2017.
