Ray Rigoglioso book cover


Celebrate the official launch of Raymond L. Rigoglioso’s anticipated new book, Gay Men and The New Way Forward. Organized around 14 Distinct Gay Male Gifts, this book takes an open-hearted look at gay men’s differences. It presents a comprehensive and updated framework that shows how gay men make critical and evolutionarily significant contributions to society. It proposes that, when we understand how we contribute to the health and vitality of society, LGBT people can make an entirely new case for equality and begin an important new era in our movement. Written as an invitation to self-discovery, Gay Men and The New Way Forward contains a self-assessment to help the reader discover how he serves and heals humanity, reinvents manhood, and frees and enriches the human spirit. Raymond will read from his book and invite questions and discussion.
Gay Men and The New Way Forward continues the inquiry about gay men’s purpose, advanced by gay writers, thinkers, and leaders throughout the years. Come celebrate the latest entry into this genre, and explore what it means to be a gay man today.
