Overview

Although society is becoming more tolerant of gay people, and even accepting of them in some places, gay people continue to suffer psychological damage caused by growing up in largely homophobic societies. How can gay people learn to love themselves when most of the signals society sends out denigrate their very being? Dr. Kevin Alderson has developed a method of building a positive gay identity based on extensive research and years of successful use of self-help psychology in his own practice.
