  • Today’s gay man enjoys unprecedented, hard-won social acceptance. Despite this victory, however, serious problems still
    exist. Substance abuse, depression, suicide, and sex addiction among gay men are at an all-time high, causing many to
    ask, “Are we really better off?” Drawing on contemporary research, psychologist Alan Downs’s own struggle with shame and
    anger, and stories from his patients, The Velvet Rage passionately describes the stages of a gay man’s journey out of
    shame and offers practical and inspired strategies to stop the cycle of avoidance and self-defeating behavior. Updated
    to reflect the effects of the many recent social, cultural, and political changes, The Velvet Rage is an empowering book
    that has already changed the public discourse on gay culture and helped shape the identity of an entire generation of
    gay men.
