Bernard Duncan Mayes - Escaping God's Closet: The Revelations of a Queer Priest - Gay Non-Fiction All Books by Bernard Duncan Mayes - Author of : Escaping God's Closet: The Revelations of a Queer Priest

By turns political, confessional, and spiritual, Mayes's tale is entertaining and well written. Coming of age during the rise of Nazism in Europe, he began having affairs with boyhood chums, then moved on to seminary where the "pad, pad, pad of feet and the rustle of cassocks down the ever-creaking corridors during the night was not always evidence of devoted meditations." A gay priest in a culture where love "is damnably suppressed, denied, and hidden ... to please intellectual tyrants claiming to speak for God," Mayes eventually helped found a small congregation of like-minded gay and lesbian Christians in the Castro district of San Francisco, in the years just before the outbreak of AIDS...

Stephen O. Murray et al - Islamic Homosexualities : Culture, History, and Literature - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Stephen O. Murray - Editor of : Islamic Homosexualities : Culture, History, and Literature
Paperback (January 1997) 
New York University Press; ISBN: 0814774687

"Gay Religion; Put aside the homophilism and the jargon, both of which are a bit strong, and what's left is a fascinating and eye-opening book about a topic much hinted at but little considered systematically. The authors not only have the benefit of knowing homosexuality in many other societies but are well grounded in matters Islamic. (click through to read this and other reviews at Amazon)."

Hardcover - 176 pages (July 1997)
Praeger Pub Text; ISBN: 0275957306

"Gay Religion; The lives of sixty-eight gay male Christian couples in Britain are documented in this well-written and important study.

It is written in a highly accessible style that advances the sociological understanding of an understudied minority."
