about

This book is a compilation of 100 columns published under the title, “Nick Benton’s Gay Science” on consecutive weeks from October 2010 through September 2012 on the website of the Falls Church News-Press and in print in the Metro Weekly, one of two prominent newspapers for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area LGBT community. That period covered the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the Broadway revival of Larry Kramer’s powerful play The Normal Heart, the President of the United States proclaiming himself in favor of gay marriage as well as the ongoing positive progression of gay rights. Benton’s columns contributed to the dialogue shaping LGBT identity and self-esteem going forward into a new world of equality.

“A distinguished, prolific journalist collects two years of published essays on the homosexual movement and its historic legacy...The outspoken author believes his writings collectively galvanize ‘a new dialogue on shaping LGBT identity and self-esteem going forward into a new world of equality.’ Readers will come away with much the same sentiment...Benton weaves his own history as an early gay liberation advocate, and his highly intellectual, pioneering nature is evident...Insightful and valid.” —Kirkus Review
