You may not have to be LGBTQ to love, or to tolerate, but the truth is, you sure get your own big doses of both when you come out of the closet. Sometimes those closets are our work, yet we need to work right? But what do we tuck away in our closets when we surrender to the work life. Maybe our creativity, or even having a place to breathe and release our modern life tensions. Today we’re going to explore creativity, work life, parenthood, and the crazy, crazy world of being an author with Hans Hirschi.
- Being an author is the same as any other day job, its hard work!
- He experienced the emotions of not being welcome, just for who he is
- Approved to foster children but told “no” just because they are gay?
- Did u know between 65-70% of kids out on the streets identify as gay?
- Focus on the humanity of the LGBT spectrum, not on sexual identity

Hans Martin Hirschi (b. 1967) has been writing stories ever since he was a child. Adulthood and the demands of corporate life efficiently put an end to his fictional writing for over twenty years. A global executive in training and channel development, Hans has traveled the world and published a couple of non-fictional titles. The birth of his son and the subsequent parental leave provided him with a much needed breathing hole and the opportunity to once again unleash his creative writing.
Having little influence over his brain’s creative workings, he simply indulges it and goes with the flow. However, the deep passion for a better world, for love and tolerance are a red thread throughout both his creative and non-fictional work.
Hans lives with his husband, son and pets on a small island off the west coast of Sweden.
