More About the Author

Marc Vargo is a nonfiction writer whose books center on political and historical issues. He is currently completing a text on the Mossad, the controversial intelligence agency of the State of Israel. It is slated for publication in 2015 by McFarland & Co., Inc.

Previous books include "Women of the Resistance" (2012), a work that revisits eight intrepid women who played vital roles in the underground movements of France, Denmark, Hungary, and Palestine in the course of World War II and the Holocaust.

Other books revisit an array of gay men and women whose deeds influenced politics and the arts during the twentieth century. Among these figures are the American composer Aaron Copland and the Swedish Secretary-General of the United Nations, Dag Hammarskjöld.

Further writings include journal articles, which report findings in the field of clinical psychology, as well as book reviews that appraise texts on gender and sexual identity.

As a young gay man who has come out of the closet already, I found the book a thoughtful and acurate portrayal of the feelings and concerns that I went through on my own. Having this book at that time would have made my life a lot simpler. Mr. Vargo has written a book that recognizes the need for the individual to express him/herself, but also recognizes the need to keep a personal part of ones life private, at least in some parts of ones life. Coming-out is not a one step process, and this book will help anyone in any stage of that process. If you are thinking of coming-out to friends/family please read this book.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone, at any level of the "coming-out" process, as well as Parents,Sons, Daughters, and any other family members of someone who has recently "come-out". Much research has obviously gone into this work and I commend Vargo for that, as well as the EXTENSIVE Bibliography that is included. I certainly hope that organizations like PFLAG add this book to it's list of recommended reading.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for someone concerned about a family member comming out or one who is concerned about comming out. Persons who are more educated about this subject are more likely to respond in a better way then one who is not educated about it. A great read for people are friends, parents, bosses, relatives, and others who want to learn to be more accepting of homosexuals. As this book mentions PLEASE be supportive of one who is going through the comming out process or who is out and needs a friend to talk about their problems. By being supportive one would feel less down and the bebefits can be huge to let the person know that you will be their to talk to if they need some one. If we become more accepting there would be less suicide, depression, and feelings of guilt. Be supportive and make a difference in someones life. This book is one great resource for anyone who want to have more good information on this important subject.
