Abstract:

The author proposes that gay identity is one of the great myths of our age. He sets forth the premise that there exists an evident distinction between 1) homosexual feelings, 2) homosexual behavior, and 3) the homosexual role. The argument presented here is that homosexual feelings play a minor part in becoming gay, which chiefly is the result of adopting the homosexual role. The gay myth is responsible for the creation of the gay community, which is an assemblage, not of people who share the same sexual orientation (they don't), but of those who have adopted the gay role.
