Becoming Gay: The Journey To Self-Acceptance
Winner of a Books for a Better Life Literary Award in Psychology
The importance of living authentically—accepting one’s homosexuality and embracing a positive gay identity—is at the heart of Dr. Richard Isay’s powerful work on the psychological development of gay men. In the candid language of personal case histories, including his own, Isay shows how disguising one’s sexual identity can induce anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. He looks at the dilemma of gay men who are closeting in heterosexual marriages as well as at the specific concerns of adolescents, older men, and those confronted with HIV or AIDS. Isay exposes the tenacity with which psychoanalysis has clung to outdated views of homosexuality. Becoming Gay offers great insight for students of psychology, gender studies, and sociology.

The book states exactly what it is GAY the words are just taken out of my mouth because of the wretchedness that this book has said in its dispicable pages. It preaches about how the right of being gay is the best thing that there ever was! yea my ass it is all about how these people in our "HABITAT" like to have they chance to get their shrunken, shriveled dicks up each other buts
In conclusion i think that this book could have used a little more thought
