Best Coming Out Books


When I was coming out I remember searching for every bit of information that I could find on coming out and what it was like to be a gay man. Well, I already knew what it was like to be a gay man, but I had no clue how to be a gay man. I searched bookstores, online, and any other information outlet I could find. At times the search was daunting and I wanted nothing more than to be pointed in the direction of someone that could help me.

To ease your coming out angst, I've compiled this list of coming out books (both non-fiction and fiction) that can aide you along your path.
