There are many novels that help a young person who is struggling with his or her sexuality learn to accept and deal with who they are. And in most of these stories the main character ultimately finds acceptance. But in real life, that doesn’t always happen. How many more 13 year olds, how many more 17 year olds, how many more 20 year olds will end their own lives because the public, their family, even their churches are making them believe that they are an abomination, simply because of who they are. Aimed at growing a more comprehensive understanding, ‘sacrifice to their gods’ unveils the struggles that one young man faces as he awakens to his sexuality. Facing bigotry and intolerance, he is driven to the very depths of depression and suicide in a hidden world that he barely knew existed. It is told in Sean’s own voice, because it is a story much too real to be told by an outsider.
