From the Publisher
"For gay men who have struggled to create a family in a world of bias and obstacles, this book is a wonderful tribute to the challenges and joys of parenting. Gay Fathers is a wonderful, honest tribute to fathers who have overcome all odds to make this world a better place for our children, an essential book for gay fathers and those who are considering parenthood." (C. Ray Drew, executive director, Family Pride Coalition)

"Gay Fathers, which was a wonderful contribution to the development of knowledge about gay men when it was first printed a decade ago, is even better in its new and revised form. Utilizing rich case examples, Bob Barret and Bryan Robinson give voice to a group that has for too long been ignored. In their examination of the many faces of gay fatherhood, the authors permit the reader to fully consider the complexity of what it means to be a gay father." (Gerald P. Mallon, assistant professor, Hunter College School of Social Work, New York)
