To this day, even in the 21st century, not enough has been written about older gay men. Still, this new edition felt soooooooo dated! They use "gay liberationist," rather than "gay rights activist." I don't mind that they don't use the Q-word, but you'll be surprised to see "homosexual" so much more than "gay." Most of these articles were written before the AIDS/HIV crisis. Because that pandemic so damaged this population, articles before 1981 can seem waaaay obsolete. I love Quentin Crisp, but he wrote the forward and he's been long deceased. The study here was based upon men who would have been my grandfather's age. The added articles don't give this a modern touch. You can appreciate this book from an historical stance. However, as something to quote in modern papers and dissertations, there's very little here.

When I ordered this book I guess I was looking for more recent information about senior gay/bi men such as where to meet and not feel smothered and ridiculed by ripped muscle, washboard abs younger men. I feel like an outsider because of my age and because I have a pear shaped body. My mind, my past life experiences, my facial beauty, my need to give and take, and share are not much considered, if at all, by the studs who think only about sex and relationships that are usually born "overnight" and doomed to failure from day one. I've tried a couple of internet senior dating sites. I haven't found much enthusiasm and participation which tells me that many older gay/bi men, like myself, are back in a closet all over again. The book has a good-read section with chapters dedicated to real-life experiences. Too much dedicated to statistics and study charts however. So, if you like that sort of thing, great for you and is an excellent price.

A bit out of date, naturally, but still a good source for basic knowledge of and insight into how gay men look upon their aging.
