In this illuminating and inevitably controversial book, Dr. Hoffman, who conducted numerous interviews and visited many of the places where homosexuals congregate, probes, in the depth and style of Oscar Lewis and other masters of the genre, this occult subculture which is hidden from the view of most Americans yet includes millions of their closest friends and relatives. Here are the gay bars, the "orgy rooms" and private cubicles of the gay baths, the private house parties, the homosexual menage or gay marriage, and the rest rooms, the parks, and the streets where homosexuals arrange their liaisons. Here, too, are the "queens," the "twinkies," the aging homosexuals, and the "part-time" homosexuals who are often husbands and fathers in their straight lives.
