7.  Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality: Gay People in Western Europe from the Beginning of the Christian Era to the Fourteenth Century by John Boswell
The list author says:
  "Now considered a classic pro-gay book. He discusses the scriptures on p 91-117, also p 335-353. He endorses the inhospitality argument for Sodom (based on Bailey). Argues that Paul thought the activities were beyond nature rather than against nature, i.e. Paul condemns homosexual acts by apparently heterosexual persons (i.e. perverts not inverts). Argues that arsenokoitai refers to prostitutes."

New Testament and Homosexualit
8.  New Testament and Homosexualit by Robin Scroggs
The list author says:
  "1983. Proposes the exploitative argument, i.e. pederasty. He is very useful on the social background and he believes that Paul gets the word arsenokoitai from the Septuagint translation of Lev 18:22 and 20:13 (also the Hebrew mishkav zakur). I wish that more pro-gay apologists were so honest."

17.  Love Between Women: Early Christian Responses to Female Homoeroticism (The Chicago Series on Sexuality, History, and Society) by Bernadette J. Brooten
The list author says:

Also has a detailed commentary on Rom 1:18-32 (p 215-302). She does rely too much on the misogyny argument, but that is not what Paul is talking about, even if that is what the Hellenistic society believed."
