Description

  • Da Capo Lifelong Books
  • 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.
