Abstract:

"Based on his experience counseling thousands of gay men and lesbians, clinical psychologist Rob Eichberg has developed a wonderfully supportive, step-by-step program for coming out to family, friends, and co-workers--and for creating an honest, fulfilling, open life of love. An inspiring call to action for all gay men and lesbians, this warm and wise book goes beyond the private experience and explains why coming out publicly in the era of AIDS is of vital importance. Only by collective action will people’s attitudes change enough to launch a vigorous, full-scale effort to cure AIDS. This compassionate, life-changing book is an act of love--love for ourselves and for all humankind."--Back cover.
