Being Homosexual: Gay Men and Their Development

by

Being Homosexual: Gay Men and Their Development Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Richard Isay was the first person to challenge the homophobia of the psychoanalytic community and prove, through his own story and those of his patients, that homosexuality is an innate characteristic rather than a learned pathology. Now revised and updated for the 21st-century, the groundbreaking Being Homosexual carries the reader through the main developmental stages in the gay male's life cycle from the initial awareness of same-sex impulses to coming out, forming friendships with other gay men, and a mature integration of one's sexual identity. An invaluable resource for gay men, Being Homosexual is a compassionate and powerful work.

Synopsis:

From a preeminent psychoanalyst--one of the first to challenge the homophobia of the psychoanalytic community--comes this updated version of the classic work in which Dr. Isay proves that homosexuality is an innate characteristic rather than learned pathology.

About the Author

Dr. Richard Isay is a professor of psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College and the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic and a faculty member of the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. He was instrumental in getting the American Psychoanalytic Association to adopt a non-discrimination policy for the training of candidates.
