Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

While the fight for gay marriage rages in America, it is easy to forget that, even without legal papers, there have always been gay male and lesbian couples. Despite the struggle to maintain, often without social or religious support, these relationships have thrived, withered, grown, floundered, and blossomed just like heterosexual unions. Men Together is a photographic and journalistic record of 29 gay male couples who have struggled and grown together over the years. Mixing the well known--Mr. Blackwell, Congressman Barney Frank, Frasier costar Dan Butler--with ordinary men--David Heinzen and Aaron Kampfe, gay cowboys who own a ranch in Montana--journalist Anderson Jones and photographer David Fields have created a tapestry of gay male life, love, and longing at the end of the 20th century. Beautifully produced (Fields's portraits of each couple are gorgeous) and wittily written, Men Together is a fine and fitting testament to the depth and reality of gay male love. --Michael Bronski

I gave this book to my mother when my partner and I decided to have a commitment ceremony. Mom was having trouble understanding and didn't seem to recognize our commitment to each other as equally valid to straight marriages. After she read the book, she sent my partner a HUGE bouquet of flowers and a card telling him she was so pleased that he was going to become an "official" part of our family!

Gay men need to be reminded that life-long commitment *IS* possible and this book does an excellent job ... the stories of the 29 gay couples in the book serves to inspire and gives me hope that one-day I might look upon my relationship in much the same way.
The book is beautifully illustrated by the photography of David Fields and the text by Anderson Jones is relaxed and very enjoyable to read.

Like one of the other reviewers on this page, I grew up without positive Gay role models, and it took decades for me to learn self-respect. This book reminds us that well-adjusted Gay couples can be found throughout our culture, something that's important for young Gay people to learn and for older Gay people to remain aware of.
I'm lucky enough to be acquainted with one of this book's subjects, Steve Langley of Washington, and I have a lot of respect for the choice he and his partner have made to be included. It's a beautiful book.

Format: Hardcover
I grew up without positive, visible role models of gay men in committed relationships. Luckily, I found my way into one. This book provides a glimpse into the lives of a number of gay male couples who are willing to serve as role models to today's young people and to men everywhere who are in search of affirmation of their loving male relationship. I applaud this effort. I find the portraits (both words and imagery) beautiful.

Format: Hardcover
As a 21 year old gay man, it is heartwarming and touching to see a such a beautiful coffee table book dedicated to portraying gay men positively and humanely, in addition to giving me hope that a long-term relationship can exist in a circuit/club/Abercrombie gay world. The stories of men who have been together for 10, 20, 30 + years are not only inspiring, but well written and accompanied with stunning black and white photos. However, while there was a considerable effort (and a good one at that!) to include a range of HIV positive and negative couples and while there were are three black men and possibly one Latino, I would have liked to have seen more gay men of color. I know there are Asian, Native American, and more Latino gay men in committed relationships, so it would have been nice to have them represented. Overall, it's a wonderful book and contribution to the GLBT community and worth buying--if anything, I just wish it were longer, so that it could include more diversity.
