Product 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.
