Out in Time

The Public Lives of Gay Men from Stonewall to the Queer Generation

Perry N. Halkitis

  • Documents the personal histories of gay men who came out across three modern time periods, showcasing how radically distinct social and political contexts changed the coming out experience
  • Identifies the unifying threads tying gay men who were baby boomers together with those of generation X and the millennial generation
  • Considers how the lives of gay men have improved over the last 50 years and yet how some challenges continue to burden gay men's lives to this day
