First published in 1990, for many years Gay Fathers was the only book available on the topic of gay fatherhood. In keeping with the times in which it was published, i.e., before the Gayby Boom, its primary focus is on gay men who become fathers through heterosexual marriages. While it was slightly revised in 2000 with additional material to reflect the rise of adoption and other means of fatherhood, much of the material addressed by this book seems dated and irrelevant in these days of Out, Loud and Proud gay fatherhood. Paradoxically, with gay men with children from previous heterosexual relationships now in the minority among gay fathers, this book has become a valuable resource for this relatively underserved group. With extensive material on issues such as disclosure, custody, separation and divorce, and dealing with wives and other family members, Gay Fathers has come full circle into relevance once again.
