Books on coming out
#1
Yes, everything can be found online, but books are still a great reference source, and can give you a good base for any matter of subjects.

Let's use this thread to list any books we have in our collections, that could help others.

This one is in my collection, and it was a big help to me.  It's 25 years old now, but there is still a lot of good information in it that is not dated.

The Homo Handbook: Getting in Touch with Your Inner Homo: A Survival Guide for Lesbians and Gay Men was published in 1996 by Simon & Schuster's Fireside Books imprint. Written by comedian Judy Carter, the self-help book for the LGBTQ community won the Lambda Literary Award for Best Humor Book at the 9th Lambda Literary Awards.  The book is a comedic guidebook that addresses issues such as coming out, dating, and dealing with discrimination.

Carter divides the book into steps, one per chapter. These are intended to help someone come out, find others and deal with discrimination. The author discusses her experiences and then asks readers to reflect on them using a series of workshops and writing prompts.
  • Buy This Book—What does coming out mean? What are the top excuses for not coming out?
