A Gay Man’s Guide to Life: Get Real, Stand Tall, and Take Your Place

Britt East

Many gay men find ourselves trapped in a series of no-win situations. If we don’t live honestly and openly, we won’t have the skills, wisdom, or relationships necessary to manifest our dreams. But when we do come out, we must confront the full force of societal homophobia, and consider a variety of questions:

  • Can we create family without mimicking the norms of straight society?
  • How do we cultivate sustainable gay friendships amidst our internalized homophobia?
  • In a world of hook-up apps and disposable relationships, how do we find lasting love?

A Gay Man’s Guide to Life answers these questions. Britt East presents an approachable, no-nonsense path for gay men, to set down the excuses and get to the business of improving their lives. No new-age mumbo jumbo or wishy washy self-help jargon. Just real work focused on real results to unleash our true selves and unlock our best lives.
