About William Dameron

William Dameron migrated from North Carolina and lives with his husband in Boston. His work has appeared in The Huffington Post, The Saranac Review and Nerve. His blog, The Authentic Life, is a collection of personal stories about his husband and their blended family of five children. Both startlingly funny and touching, they are a celebration of what he has found: that living authentically is the only way out. One day he will finish his memoir. You can also follow him on Twitter @wcdameron.


  1. Beautifully written and deeply felt. Thank you for sharing your life path with us. I am glad you are finally finding peace and sanctuary from normalized bigotry.

  2. Thank you John. I certainly have found peace and sanctuary and even more, I found real happiness. Let’s hope the next generation can find it anywhere.
