Finding peace after cruelty

Listen to this story
A Kentucky man who survived childhood abuse and learned to forgive will share his story with audiences in Canton and Potsdam.

You might remember Nathan Hoskins' StoryCorps segment that aired a few months ago on Morning Edition. In it, he tells a friend how his family first learned that he was gay and how he was held at gunpoint by his mother. Since then, Hoskins has traveled the country speaking to community and college groups about his painful childhood and his resolve to fulfill his dreams.

Todd Moe spoke with him about "coming out" to his family and the response he's received since his StoryCorps interview aired on NPR.

Nathan Hoskins will share his story of surviving childhood abuse this Sunday at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Canton and again Monday at 6 pm at SUNY Potsdam in Kellas Hall, Room 103. Everyone is invited to both presentations, but the program is not suitable for young audiences.
