Overview

As Steve Hogan and Lee Hudson wrote in their book, Completely Queer: The Gay and Lesbian Encyclopedia, "Aging remains one of the least discussed, least studied, and, probably as a result, least celebrated aspects of gay...lives." Until now. In The Gay Man's Guide to Growing Older, John Lockhart has conducted in-depth interviews with more than 40 gay men over the age of 65, and he has compiled his findings in this practical, nonacademic book that details what life for "gay men of a certain age" is like. Topics covered include money, work, health care, relationships, sex, and more! This book is a must-read for any gay man planning for his future, regardless of his current age.
