And Then I Became Gay by Ritch C. Savin-Williams

Book Description

"...And Then I Became Gay is about the lives of young men who express the complications, adversities, and satisfactions of being a sexual outsider in North America during the 1980s and 1990s. Consisting of narratives which chronicle developmental progression from first memories of being attracted to other males to a subsequent integration of their sexual identity with a personal identity, this book is also unique in its cross-section of men from different ethnic backgrounds. Although each story in this volume has a personal meaning to the individual youth disclosing it, aspects of these narratives can express a normative experience growing up gay or bisexual during the past two decades. For many of the contributors and readers, these stories may prove to be not only ones of coming out, but coming of age.

Becoming Who I am by Ritch C. Savin-Williams Becoming Who I am, Hardback (September 2016)

Proud, happy, grateful gay youth describe their lives in terms that would have seemed surprising a generation ago. Yet many adults, including parents, are skeptical of this sea change coming out is supposed to involve struggle. This is the kind of thinking, say the honest, humorous young men in Ritch Savin-Williams's new book, that needs to change.

New Gay Teenager by Ritch C. Savin-Williams New Gay Teenager, Paperback (December 2006)

How much does sexual orientation matter to a teenager's mental health or sense of identity? This book argues that the standard image of gay youth presented by mental health researchers - as depressed, isolated, drug-dependent, even suicidal - may have been exaggerated years ago, and is far from accurate.

Mom, Dad, I'm Gay by Ritch C. Savin-Williams Mom, Dad, I'm Gay, Hardback (February 2001)

Drawing from over 150 interviews with teens, psychologist Ritch Savin-Williams seeks to separate fact from fiction in this survey of coming-out experiences. He illustrates the range of family reactions and the factors that determine how parents come to terms with the disclosure over time.
