GRAYGAY BOOKS BOOK OF THE MONTH

Positive relationships between older and younger men are rarely included in gay writing so we attempt to pick the best fiction and biography that deals with this subject.

Coming out is difficult at any time, and possibly even harder when you're older, so we have books that may help, Dating books to help you to find Mr Right and Sex Advice books to help you perform when you've found him.

For older gay readers we have lifestyle advice, health and fitness and bereavement as well as practical advice for those new to computers and the internet. And for every gay man, a guide to gay travel books.

If you're looking for studies of gay ageing issues see the research section.
