Confessions of A Right-wing Gay Jewish MuckrakerBook - 2016
"Controversial Toronto journalist Sue-Ann Levy - a self-described nice, chubby, Jewish, gay, conservative girl - takes on the establishment and establishment thinking in this provocative and insightful memoir. She was born to a traditional patriarchal Jewish family in which the son was considered accomplished simply for being born, and she realized from an early age that she would not fit into the mold designated for her. An outspoken, right-wing lesbian, Levy has spent her life challenging the status quo - from championing the underdog, to taking on the Liberal left, to running as the first openly gay candidate for the Ontario Progressive Conservative party in 2009. Underdog chronicles Levy's journey through Toronto politics with the same candid, humorous, and self-deprecating approach found in her daily columns. Sue-Ann Levy will inspire readers to speak up against the inequalities in our political and justice systems. Sue-Ann Levy is an investigative reporter/columnist for the Toronto Sun. Prior to this, she spent nearly 16 years at Toronto City Hall and at Queen's Park exposing waste, mismanagement and political correctness gone amok, and the plight of the homeless. She lives with her wife, Denise Alexander, in Toronto and Florida"--Provided by publisher.
