Ellen Lewin - Recognizing Ourselves - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Ellen Lewin - Author of : Recognizing Ourselves
Paperback - 288 pages 0 edition (November 15, 1999) 
Columbia Univ Pr; ISBN: 023110393X

"Gay Studies; Relationships; In April 1993, as part of the March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation, hundreds of couples participated in "the Wedding," a symbolic commitment ceremony held in front of the Internal Revenue Service building. Part protest and part affirmation of devotion, the event was a reminder that marriage rights have become a major issue among lesbians and gay men, who cannot marry legally and can only claim domestic partner rights in a few locations in the United States. Yet despite official lack of recognition, same-sex wedding ceremonies have been increasing in frequency over the past decade. Ellen Lewin, who has consecrated her own lesbian relationship with a commitment ceremony, decided to explore the myriad ways in which lesbians and gay men create meaningful ceremonies for themselves. She offers the first comprehensive account of lesbian and gay weddings in modern America. A series of richly detailed profiles -the result of extensive interviews and participation in the planning and realization of many of these commitment rituals -is woven together to show how new traditions, and ultimately new families, are emerging within contemporary America. Just as the book is a moving portrait of same-sex couples today, it is also a significant political document on a new arena in the struggle for lesbian and gay rights. In a larger sense, Lewin´s work is about the politics surrounding same-sex marriages and the ramifications for central dimensions of American culture such as kinship, community, morality, and love. Lewin explores the ceremonies themselves, which range from traditional church weddings to Wicca rituals in the countryside, with portraits of the planning, the joys, and the anxieties that led up to the weddings. She introduces Bob and Mark, a leather fetishist couple who sanctified their love by legally changing their last names and exchanging vows in tuxedos, leather bow ties, and knee-high police boots. In an equally absorbing profile, Lewin describes Khadija, from a working-class black family deeply suspicious of whites (and especially Jews) and Shulamith, raised in a Zionist household. She tells of how the two women struggled to reconcile their widely disparate upbringings and how they ultimately combined elements of African and Jewish traditions in their wedding. These, among many other stories, make Recognizing Ourselves a vivid tapestry of lesbian and gay life in post-Stonewall United States."

Douglas Wythe (Editor), et al - Wedding : A Family's Coming Out Story - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Douglas Wythe, Andrew Merling, Roslyn Merling, Sheldon Merling  - Editor of : Wedding : A Family's Coming Out Story
Hardcover - 288 pages (March 2000) 
Avon Books (Trd); ISBN: 0380976919

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"Two people meet and fall in love. Over time, their relationship grows and they decide to spend the rest of their lives together. They plan a wedding, a formal binding into a permanent relationship with family and friends on hand as witnesses to solemn but beautiful vows. It's an occasion people dream about for most of their lives, though it is often joked that the wedding is more for the parents than the children. 
But what if they're gay? 
Andrew Merling was a graduate student in clinical psychology when he met Doug Wythe, a television promotion director. Their relationship continued for three-and-a-half years before Doug formally proposed marriage to Andrew. Together, they agreed to have a traditional affair for family and friends. 
While Doug was not as close to his extended family, Andrew came from large, tight-knit Jewish family in Montreal. When he announced his engagement and the couple's plans for a traditional Jewish ceremony and a festive celebration, it was then that previously unacknowledged prejudices and hidden concerns suddenly reared their contentious heads. 
Typical wedding conflicts over money and manners paled next to worries over whether Andrew's parents would find themselves ostracized by their conservative community. Then, just two months before the big day, the family had to decide if they were ready to perform the ultimate act of "coming out," when ABC-TV News asked to profile them as part of an episode on Turning Point, and bring national attention to their personal struggle. 
The first book to speak to both sides of a controversy that is altering our society, this fascinating chronicle follows Doug, Andrew, and his parents Sheldon and Roslyn on the rocky road from engagement to understanding. With the impending wedding as a catalyst, they embark on a painful, joyful odyssey of discovery, struggling both to be heard and to find acceptance from each other, their friends and communities. Their four distinct voices blend to create a unique depiction of one family coming to grips with the reality of being a gay couple in today's world."

Merle J. Yost (Ed) - When Love Lasts Forever : Male Couples Celebrate Commitment - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Merle J. Yost - Author of : When Love Lasts Forever : Male Couples Celebrate Commitment
Hardcover (September 1999) 
Pilgrim Pr; ISBN: 0829813322

"Gay Relationships Books; Did you hear the one about two gay men who met in 1952 and have been happily together ever since? Did you hear the one about two men in Theological School in 1977 who didn't realize the other was gay until one evening when...? In this collection, those stories appear among 14 first-person accounts of male couples who met, spontaneously connected and have stayed together over the long-haul (anywhere from 10 to 47 years). Filled with tales of what drew these men together in the first place and what has kept them devoted, the collection makes its point about the possibilities of gay male commitment without any rhetoric or badgering. Stereotypes of all sorts fall apart in the face of the everyday realities of these men's stories -- including the one that gay men never age, since each story is accompanied by a photograph of the couple near the beginning of their relationship and one from the present day. To his credit, editor Merle Yost has gathered varied accounts that range over a wide spectrum of family origin, age and educational and economic levels."
