Transcript 14 MONTROSE VOICE / OCTOBER 4, 1985 Books Never Too Old to Grow Reviewed by Linda Wyche Young, Gay and Proud; edited by Sasha Alyson; non-fiction; 95 pages; Alyson Publications, 40 Plympton St., Boston, MA 02118; softcover; $4.00. As much as many of us regret growing older, few of us care to repeat our teen years. This was the time when our minds and bodies experienced such vast change that we were often overwhelmed. Practically everything we did and every decision we made was affected by the turmoil created by "growing up." The gay adolescent experiences an even greater trauma. The gay teenager feels different from his peers. All adolescents have difficulty understanding sexuality and sexual development, but the lack of an understanding society, including family and friends, makes sexual awakenening an even lonelier and confusing time for gays. In 1980, Alyson Publications, released a book based on a similar one published in Australia by the Gay Teachers and Students Group of Melbourne. Young, Gay and Proud was the first gay book by Alyson and one of the first and most-heralded guides for gay youth. Now with the AIDS crisis, Sasha Alyson, has re-released Young, Gay and Proud with an expanded section on gay health. This is not a pamphlet, but a well- written, clear and concise guide which covers such areas as coming out to parents, meeting other gays, coming out in school, gay sexuality and finding your identity. The book covers lesbianism as well as male homosexuality. Young, Gay and Proud includes illustrations, letters and an extended bibliography. The most important aspect of the book is that it strives to make gay teenagers feel good about themselves. The overall tone of the book stresses that homosexuals are not alone, dirty, sick or bad. It is that aspect of Young, Gay and Proud that makes it must reading for all gays, regardless of age. Sexuality is not something that happens and is over. We are all growing up as we continually explore our relationships with ourselves and others. Alyson Publications should be commended for this latest release of Young, Proud and Gay. In a time when many gays suffer from self-image problems, homophobia is rampant in our society, and the community is stricken with a tragic health crisis, anything that makes us feel good about ourselves and our lifestyle should be respected and cherished.
