Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Mixing anecdotes, stories, philosophy, and advice, Clark offers readers a fully rewritten 20th-anniverary edition of his popular guide for gay people and those who want to love and support them. The new edition brings his readers up to date on the political stands of lawmakers and the general public attitudes toward gay issues, which have changed significantly in the last two decades. In an especially practical and useful chapter, "Professional Help," teachers and librarians, doctors and nurses, psychotherapists and counselors, and others are all given practical advice about how to support gay people in their professional lives. Also, parents, neighbors, and friends will find Clark's words of advice to be soothing and useful. Revolutionary when it first appeared and still absolutely necessary, this book is perhaps the most important work in a gay studies or self-help collection and is highly recommended for all libraries.?Barbara O'Hara, Free Lib. of Philadelphia

Format: Paperback
Written from the point of view of a gay, this is a book which covers most aspects of being Gay or Lesbian with sensitivity and great understanding. It is a truly worthwhile book to read whether you are gay, lesbian or "straight" - there are chapters that are aimed at all. Particularly unusual and worth reading is the chapter on being gay and married.

Format: Paperback
(...) this book is not a sex guide. Rather, "Loving Someone Gay" is a heartfelt look into the psychology of gay men and women. It shares their experiences, feelings, and needs through stories and expert observation. It's a sensitively written glimpse into the gay mind, and I highly recommend it to any gay person--or the loved ones of a gay person--that would like to better understand his or herself.
