Homo No Mo now for Sale!

I got news yesterday that the DVD of Doin’ Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House (edited by Morgan Jon Fox with designs by Christine Bakke–click on images for larger view) is now fully produced and ready for sale on-line. I have yet to see the final product, but the president of the company that did all the printing and copying sent me an e-mail to say how impressed he was with the final product and what a dream it was to work with Christine and Morgan.

Quaker Books Friends General Conference will be distributing the DVD which you can get at their site by clicking here.

After 15 years of submitting to reparative therapy, ex-gay support groups and even three exorcisms, Peterson Toscano enrolled in the ex-gay residential program, Love in Action. He graduated successfully from the program nearly two years later, but in January of 1999 decided he just needed to accept himself as a gay man. He weaves together humor, program jargon and outrageous eye witness accounts to form a piece that is hilarious, poignant and inspirational. Peterson co-founded BeyondExGay.com and is a Quaker. He is appearing at the 2008 FGC Gathering. He retired the show in 2008 and this recording captures that final performance.

If you order one, let me know how long it takes for you to get it. For Quakers it will also be available at various yearly meetings and at FGC. I will also have some copies when I go to Memphis later this month. I am so excited, I just want to fly home from England to see my copy!

    Do they come autographed? What are the special features of the DVD? Do they include any Marvin tidbits? Is there any behind the scenes (including me) stuff? Is it surround sound? How about letter-box? If so, then I’ll get one.


    Congrats by the way.

    Almost forgot: what’s the residuals for you? For me? For Auntie Doris? For Alex? For anyone else?

    Congrats Peterson! I just purchased a copy. =)

    joe g, I am with Auntie Doris tonight and hear you have been talking smack about me yet again. Your obsession with me would disturb me if I wasn’t so flattered.

    In answer to your questions. Yes, Marvin is well represented in the extras. I have some nude footage of you I took when I was trapped in your home for those sultry days a few years ago. Yes, it has surround sound and that shaking earthquake effect they had when you were a teen in the late 70s. So yeah, buy one and I will e-mail you my autograph.

    Peterson, great news on the dvd’s. The bad news is that I had my DVD case stolen from me on the plane over to russia. Which means I may have lost my original copy of homo no mo. I’ll be getting a new one anyways but that original way very dear to me. I’m trying to recover the dvd case but who knows. love from russia

    Looks pretty 🙂

    My discovery from last night is that red wine, white wine and Bailey’s make me feel very tired the next day. I would love to blame Peterson for leading me astray, but on this particular occassion it was all my own doing!!

    Fabulous to see you again P. Big love .

    craig, no worries. It is time for a replacement of that one. You deserve an upgrade!

    Auntie Doris, my lips are sealed about your behavior last night. I won’t even mention about your wild flirtation with a lezzzzbian.

  9. Auntie Doris on June 2, 2008 at 8:11 pm

    *cackle* you behave 😉 Apparently I flirt with everyone!! Considering the company I think I behaved as well as could be expected 🙂

    Hey Peterson, per your request, I ordered on Thursday (6/5) received my dvd in the mail on Monday (6/9). God bless those Quakers and their service oriented customer service.

    Hey Peterson — I stayed up WAY too late last night enjoying the DVD & all those extras. Fun, fun, fun! Congrats on a project well done.

  14. Peterson Toscano on June 10, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    Buddy & Carrie, that is GREAT news! Thanks for bringing me into your home. 🙂

    I just watched it. First of all, Amazon.com could learn a lesson from the Quakers on order fulfillment. The DVD showed up two days after ordering -who would have thought?

    I’ve never seen it live but was thoroughly impressed. You have the kind of skill with different characters and voices that could get you a spot on the SNL cast should you ever stop doing what you are doing now. That’s Eddie Murphy style talent.

    All in all, you did a great job and so did your production team. I hope you are able to “fuk-us” on putting together a whole lot more material and look forward to seeing you live someday.
