Drawing on his professional and personal experience, a gay psychiatrist in private practice in Boston and New York provides a survival guide for newly "out" gay men, more experienced but troubled gay men, and their parents. He treats issues surrounding coming out, lifestyle choices, relationships, sexuality, reactions to stigmatization, aging, identity, and emotional disorders with frankness. The guide includes case vignettes, advice on when to seek professional help and choose a therapist, therapy options, and a summary of the main types of theories of the origins of homosexuality.
