Today’s gay man enjoys unprecedented, hard-won social acceptance. Despite this victory, however, serious problems still exist. Substance abuse, depression, suicide, and sex addiction among gay men are at an all-time high, causing many to ask, “Are we really better off?” Drawing on contemporary research, psychologist Alan Downs’s own struggle with shame and anger, and stories from his patients, The Velvet Rage passionately describes the stages of a gay man’s journey out of shame and offers practical and inspired strategies to stop the cycle of avoidance and self-defeating behavior.

Same Sex, Different Politics: Success and Failure in the Struggles over Gay Rights
Gary Mucciaroni | University Of Chicago Press | 2008-10-15 | ISBN: 0226544095 | Pages: 392 | PDF | 1.05 MB

Why is it so much harder for American same-sex couples to get married than it is for them to adopt children? And why does our military prevent gays from serving openly even though jurisdictions nationwide continue to render such discrimination illegal? Illuminating the conditions that engender these contradictory policies, Same Sex, Different Politics explains why gay rights advocates have achieved dramatically different levels of success from one policy area to another.
The first book to compare results across a wide range of gay rights struggles, this volume explores debates over laws governing military service, homosexual conduct, adoption, marriage and partner recognition, hate crimes, and civil rights. It reveals that in each area, the gay rights movement’s achievements depend both on Americans’ perceptions of its demands and on the political venue in which the conflict plays out. Adoption policy, for example, generally takes shape in a decentralized system of courts that enables couples to target sympathetic judges, while fights for gay marriage generally culminate in legislation or ballot referenda against which it is easier to mount opposition. Brilliantly synthesizing all the factors that contribute to each kind of outcome, Same Sex, Different Politics establishes a new framework for understanding the trajectory of a movement.

Selling Out: The Gay and Lesbian Movement Goes to Market
Palgrave Macmillan | 2000-04-22 | ISBN: 0312214499 | 256 pages | pdf | 5 MB

In the 1990s, a new niche market emerged in the United States: gay and lesbian consumers were targeted by both mainstream and gay and lesbian producers. Selling Out asks: What is the relationship between this niche market and the social movement that works for gay and lesbian rights? Locating the niche market and social movement in the context of the rise of consumer culture and pictorial advertising and the rise of identity-based social movements over the course of the 20th century, Chasin examines specific sites of intersection between them: the gay and lesbian press, advertising, boycotting, and the mechanisms of funding the movement. Chasin identifies the dynamics of race, gender, and class, as well as the ubiquitous nationalism, that inform both political and commercial practices in the gay and lesbian community.

La pietra angolare è la prima che si posa quando si innalza un edificio. È la più importante, quella che idealmente regge tutta la costruzione. Per questo motivo, non può essere una pietra qualunque, ma va cercata e scelta con cura, scavando in profondità. Il coming out dell’ottobre 2015 è la prima pietra, la pietra angolare nella vita di Krzysztof Charamsa. Nel pieno di una carriera ai massimi livelli da teologo in Vaticano, egli ha deciso di denunciare al mondo l’ipocrisia della Chiesa cattolica, un’istituzione che da secoli utilizza il sesso allo scopo di imporre il proprio potere sulla gente…
