"Closeted gay men are reading gay romance to feel better about themselves? 'A person who is just like him and has been where he is and come out the other side'? I can tell you from first hand experience that I'm NOT looking to fiction to help guide me 'to the other side'!! I'm reading gay romance for an escape from daily life, not something that comments on society. jeesh..........."
From a very smart, very gay friend.
