About the Author:

Martin Duberman is Distinguished Professor of History at CUNY's Lehman College and Graduate School.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"I've always had trouble with my body image. Though I recognized, abstractly, that I was considered good-looking, the news had never really taken hold.

I had worked out the reasons several times over in therapy; they had something to do with global feelings of not being intact, not 'right.' Such feelings were commonplace among gay people in pre-Stonewall America. Few of us liked ourselves. How could we, growing up in a society that insistently linked homosexuality with pathology?

Karl, my therapist in the mid-sixties, had never once suggested that negative cultural definitions of homosexuality might be somewhat responsible for my feelings of distress and discomfort. Rather, he indicted homosexuality itself, implying further that social disapproval was a perfectly understandable response to behavior that was intrinsically disturbed."
