review ß Out of the Shadows Reimagining Gay Men's Lives Out from under the trauma of destructive early life experience and the two epidemics and into a century of shifting social values provides an opportunity to explore possibilities rather than live with limitations imposed by others Though it is drawn from decades of private practice activism and life in the gay community Odets’s work achieves remarkable universality At its core Out of the Shadows is driven by his belief that it is time that we act based on who we are and not who others are or who they would want us to be We particularly the young must construct our own paths through life Out of the Shadows is a necessary impassioned argument for how and why we must all take hold of our future. Full disclosure I received this book for free from Goodreads So I m not sure what I expected this to be but I sure didn t expect it to be everything that it was It
