Learn the five biggest mistakes gay men make when seeking a relationship. Understand how to deal with loved ones who disapprove of your being gay. Overcome damaging patterns that are holding you back from enjoying a healthy sex life. Learn how to identify your own internalized homophobia, a chronic issue that prevents many gay men from leading satisfying lives and keeps them from having healthy relationships.
After coming out, a gay man will typically feel better at first, but often the good feelings don’t last. This is because “coming out” is only part of the beginning of the journey. This book provides a map for navigating the whole long passage of becoming the gay man you want to be.
