Coming Out Every Day-A gay, bisexual, or questioning man's guide
Many of the books and articles about "coming out" focus on the
external difficulties that gay or bisexual men face when they
disclose their sexual orientation to others: "How can I tell them?
How will they react?" Less acknowledged is the internal struggle
that many men undergo to define their sexual identity, accept its
unique characteristics, and "come out" to themselves. Coming Out
Every Day provides a supportive, structured approach to this often
intimidating process of self-examination and change. Through
challenging exercises and personal inventories, readers examine
the many aspects of their identity, work through barriers of shame
and guilt, and take steps to integrate sexual feelings and needs
into a conscious sense of self. Included are a wealth of
suggestions for finding support and building healthy new
relationships with families, friends, lovers, and partners.
