    Andrew wrote this book in standard English as conveying the message was more important than the script icon_razz.gificon_razz.gif

    What if you wanted to give a friend the book that saved your life when you realized you were gay, but it was out of print? You could hunt in used book stores, or search online for reviews, but you’d be lucky to find it. In "The Lost Library" twenty eight modern gay authors reminisce about their favorite out of print gay novels, bringing the texts to light and telling intimate stories of their own.

    Lovers' Legends: The Gay Greek Myths

    5117B3J7HTL._SL500_.jpg

    "Where are our stolen stories?" That's what every guy who's ever fallen in love with another guy should be asking. When we're kids our brains are stuffed with tale after tale in which prince meets princess. But where are the old stories in which one dude fell in love with another???

    Long ago, tales of love between men, gay or not, were common but they were all stomped out by those who wanted to murder that love. Until now.

    Andrew Calimach has restored nine Greek myths, thousands of years old but still fresh today, in the prize-winning "Lovers' Legends: The Gay Greek Myths." The Greeks through these stories taught how to love – and how not to love – another male. They are the love-wisdom and culture of our forefathers.

    "Lovers' Legends" also includes "Erotes," an ancient debate between gay and straight love (Sneak preview: gay love wins). Calimach searched through museums in Europe and America and found many paintings and statues of those gay gods and heroes, pictures which fill the pages of "Lovers' Legends."

    All the Greek myths you have read were censored to fit the propaganda fed to young people today, to feel ashamed if they love another guy, and afraid to be loved by another guy. We do not have to buy into shame and fear. Here are the true stories of warrior love between Hercules and Hylas and Achilles and Patroclus, and many others tales of gods and heroes who loved each other. Read them and discover a different reality. But be careful! Once you enter that world, you can't go home again.

    I have some new reading to do.

    That said...................all of you should read "The Gay Soul"
    It is a series of interviews from the men who created the foundation of who we are today. Joseph Kramer, Harry Hay, and Paul Monett are responsiable for what we have now accomplished. Their stroies are so profound, read them, you will be a better man.
    Send me an e-mail and tell me about it. I love a good conversation.

    It was implied that Dorian Gray was bisexual in Portrait, because he did have a relationship with a woman.

    Another older book, that treats the struggle/freedom of coming to terms with one's sexuality, is Andre Gide's "The Immoralist". A story of a young man who marries out of duty, but has always had strong urges and attraction to other beautiful men. He has a near-death experience, and after that, begins to live life freely and in the moment.

    Definitely was ahead of its time in terms of its frank and honest portrayal at how so many of us come to terms with our same-sex orientation, and it definitely caused quite the commotion when it was written.

    An oldy, but a goody...
