Summary

The groundbreaking work on being homosexual in America-available again only from Penguin Classics and with a new foreword by Dan Savage Originally published in 1971, Merle Miller's On Being Differentis a pioneering and thought-provoking book about being homosexual in the United States. Just two years after the Stonewall riots, Miller wrote a poignant essay for the New York Times Magazineentitled "What It Means To Be a Homosexual" in response to a homophobic article published in Harper's Magazine. Described as "the most widely read and discussed essay of the decade," it carried the seed that would blossom into On Being Different-one of the earliest memoirs to affirm the importance of coming out.
