HOW TO BURN A RAINBOW by KARL DUNN, in conversation with Coach Pablo
What readers are calling the gay Eat, Pray, Love...
Sometimes, to find yourself, you must first burn everything down. Karl had it all; a husband, a home in the Los Angeles Hills, success. When his marriage ended suddenly, his perfect life and sense of self were shattered. His legal battles threatened everything he had, and he soon found himself working non-stop, leading to a downward spiral filled with anxious days and sleepless nights of rage and fear. Ironically, Karl's divorce ignited a journey of self-discovery-a quest for identity, love, and acceptance that took him from LA to a mid-divorce crash-landing in Berlin.
This raw and unflinching memoir welcomes readers into the heart of Karl's transformative journey-burning the scripts written for him by both the gay and straight worlds, facing down his deepest fears, and forging his own path to self-love. How To Burn A Rainbow is a gripping narrative of resilience and courage that dares to ask the hard questions about love, equality, and the price of happiness.
In the end, Karl's marriage didn't make him whole, his divorce did.
Karl Dunn is a multi-award-winning advertising Creative Director who has lived and worked in eleven cities throughout Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe, and America. A global citizen, Karl speaks on a broad section of topics such as Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and Self-love — a culmination of his 25 years in international business, his personal experience of divorce, and his passion for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. He is the author of "How To Burn A Rainbow," an intimate, honest, and revealing story about divorce and self-love.

Coach Pablo is a former therapist, fitness coach and performer in San Francisco. A gay divorcee, Pablo found his voice and discovered his identity once the divorce was filed.
