Fit to serve : reflections on a secret life, private struggle, and public battle to become the first openly gay U.S. ambassador by James C Hormel( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James C. Hormel--a man who grew up feeling different, not only because his family built the SPAM meatpacking "empire" and lived in the only mansion in his small Midwestern town, but because he was gay at a time when homosexuality was not mentioned, let alone accepted. Outwardly, he tried to live up to the life his parents wanted for him--he was a successful professional, married to a lovely woman, and father of five children--but as the 1960s reshaped the American psyche, Hormel felt that he could no longer hide his true self. He became an antiwar activist, fought homophobia, lost half his friends to AIDS, and set out to become America's first openly gay ambassador, a position he finally won during the Clinton administration. Today, Hormel continues to fight for LGBT equality and gay marriage rights. His passionate story will inspire you to fight for fairness and for your own version of the American Dream.--From publisher description

"This is the memoir of James C. Hormel -- a man who grew up feeling different not only because his family owned the Hormel empire and lived in a twenty-six-bedroom house in a small Midwest town, but because he was gay at a time when homosexuality was not discussed or accepted. Outwardly he tried to live up to the life his father wanted for him -- he was a successful professional, had married a lovely woman, and had children -- but as volatile changes in the late 1960s impeded on the American psyche, Hormel realized that he could not hide his true self forever. Hormel moved to New York City, became an antiwar activist, battled homophobia, lost dear friends to AIDS, and set out to become America's first openly gay ambassador, a position he finally won during the Clinton administration. Today, Hormel continues to fight for LGBT equality and gay marriage rights. This is a passionate and inspiring true story of the determination for human equality and for attaining your own version of the American Dream -- life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness without exception"--Provided by publisher
