A controversial book which looks at the wellbeing of gay people, a disproportionate number of whom suffer from mental health problems. Calls for society to protect and nurture young people, regardless of their sexual orientation.
This is an essential read for every gay person on the planet. – Elton John. An essential book… Part sociological polemic and part self-help book, it zones in on some of the issues that disproportionately affect the gay community, from depression and anxiety to drug and alcohol addiction and body and eating disorders. I found myself both deeply upset and hugely relieved by its candour. After reading the book, tender as it is, you can’t help but want to share your own experiences. Consider Straight Jacket a call to arms.
