Now That I'm Out What Do I Do

Brian McNaught, Author St. Martin's Press $13.95 (205p) ISBN 978-0-312-15616-9
McNaught (Gay Issues in the Workplace), a ""certified sexuality educator,"" exhibits a mature perspective and supporting anecdotal material in this very personal guide to living and thinking gay after coming out. He takes on such topics as gay youth, marriage, family, religion and the workplace in an attempt to address one essential issue to gays: ""[W]hy do even those of us who consider ourselves out of the closet often duck personal questions when we know the truthful responses will both liberate us and change the attitudes and behavior of others?"" Education and a vaguely spiritual form of self-realization, McNaught concludes, are the answer for gays and straights alike. Years of fielding questions during his talks to corporations and universities across the country has provided him with concise and focused takes on significant problems facing gays in America today. Chattily and cogently written, this book offers solid advice to the majority of gays, who are neither activist nor self-loathing, on how to come to terms with themselves in both gay and mainstream society.
