Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Issues

Coming Out of ShameComing Out of Shame: Transforming Gay and Lesbian Lives "Kaufman and Raphael explain how one emotion--shame--affects, overwhelmingly negatively, the lives of homosexuals and what gay individuals and couples can do to transcend shame's ill effects. They neatly dovetail theory, illustrative anecdotes, and prescriptive advice as they exhaustively survey the almost innumerable ways in which shame undermines personal security, happiness, and mental health." by Ray Olson
