BBP Bookless Tour with Brett Trapp
For nine years, Brett Trapp kept a secret journal of thoughts on being same-sex attracted and Christian, knowing one day he'd shout the story he feared most.
On a Wednesday morning in late 2016, he logged on Facebook and began shouting...
He started by publishing a Gossip Guide to his sexuality—a cheeky way to let friends know his secret. He then began sharing the vivid details of his story through a 44-episode memoir, published as one episode per day. Each episode combined visually-rich prose and stunning photography. He called the story Blue Babies Pink.
Within days, word began to spread. Though there was no advertising or major publicity, people began to share the story through social media. Over 50,000 readers tuned in, eagerly waiting for the daily installment to be released. Several readers called it "the Netflix of blogs.”
When the project ended, Brett decided to hit the road and meet many of his readers. It would be like a book tour…except…there was no book. So he named it the Bookless Tour. At each tour stop, Brett will be speaking about faith, sexuality, secrets, singleness, vulnerability, and story-telling.
The Potter’s House will be hosting Brett’s only stop on the east coast. The event is Monday, January 23rd at 7pm. It’s a ticketed event but tickets are free. You can register by clicking here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bbp-bookless-tour-washington-dc-tickets-31242716807
