The New Gay Teenager
Thanks for your kind comments, Steve. I'm looking forward to many more years of thoughtful and stimulating discussions. And on that note, I'd like to call everyone's attention to a recent "Pride" article by Kenji Yoshino (author of Covering, a book we all liked) on the new gay teenager, the older gay community, and the surrounding homophobia in which we all live. "They're Queer, And They Don't Need Us ... Or Do They?" appeared recently in The Advocate. Note his praise for Ritch C. Savin-Williams' The New Gay Teenager. I think we should put this book on our next reading list.
