Ever since the publication of the best-selling book Loving Someone Gay, clinical psychologist Donald Clark has received a constant stream of letters from readers who wanted to share something important with him. Sometimes they have questions, sometimes they just want to talk to a kindred spirit.
Clark first released Living Gay in 1979. This wonderful book still offers inspiration and insight into being gay—though decades have passed since the original volume appeared and LGBT rights and lives are no longer whispered about in the shadows. Clark’s wisdom about leading life in a positive and fulfilling way without denying same-sex desire is neither dated nor ephemeral. Living Gay is a book that still welcomes 21st century readers and encourages their lives, loves, and spirits.
