Familiar Faces, Hidden lives

SYNOPSIS

In 1973, after serving as a senior health-services official in New York City, Howard Brown made an announcement that, as he put it, 'ended my life of fear': he publicly revealed his homosexuality. He became a spokesman in gay history: Familiar Faces, Hidden lives. In it Brown speaks honestly and plainly about what it is like to be a homosexual man in America. Brown begins with his own experiences, supplementing those with the experiences of friends and correspondents and with an examination of the complex related problems generated by religion, the law, psychiatry, and other social institutions. The results is a book of enduring relevance and poignancy, a book that bears witness to the earlier achievements of gay liberation and at the same time points to the tasks that still lie ahead
