Familiar faces, hidden lives: the story of homosexual men in America today, Volume 1
After serving as a senior health services official in New York City during the Lindsay administration, Brown publicly revealed his homosexuality--and served, until his death in 1975, as a spokesman for gay liberation. The familiar faces he writes of are those men he knew sexually and socially, professionally and politically. Brown's book also illustrates the complex problems of a homosexual's life generated by diverse social institutions: religion, the law, psychiatry, and family, and a heterosexual conceptualization of love relationships.
