Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman inthe eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence. The novel was a succès de scandale and the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895. It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.

A young boy sitting on a piano bench realizes one day that he will never marry. At the time, this seems merely a simple, if odd, fact, but as his attraction to boys grows stronger, he is pulled into a vortex of denial. Not just for one year or even 10, but for 25 years, he lives in an inverted world, a place like a photographic negative, where love is hate, attraction is envy, and childhood never ends. He comes to think of himself as a kind of monster—until one day, seemingly miraculously, the world turns itself upright and the possibility of love floods in.<br /><br />Equal parts Oliver Sacks and George Orwell, with moments of Woody Allen, Jonathan Rauch’s memoir of his “inversion” is by turns harrowing and funny, a grippingly intimate journey through a bizarre maze of self-torment that ends with an unexpected discovery. Many people, gay and straight, have lived through their own versions of this story, seeking to twist their personality in directions it just won’t go. Not all have been lucky enough to escape.<br /><br />ABOUT THE AUTHOR<br /><br />Jonathan Rauch first drafted this book, years ago, strictly for himself, to make a personal record of his “life without a soul.” After hesitating for years to publish it, he was inspired to do so partly by the redemptive power of his own marriage, to a man—the marriage he thought he could never have. The author of five books (including Gay Marriage: Why It Is Good for Gays, Good for Straights, and Good for America) and a National Magazine Award winner, Rauch has been writing for The Atlantic since 1989. <br /><br />PRAISE FOR DENIAL<br /><br />"Heart-rending and heart-warming: a touchingly intimate memoir that will move everyone, gay or straight, who has yearned for a love they do not understand." —David Frum, author and contributing editor at Newsweek/Daily Beast.<br /><br />“Every gay person will recognize his own journey—the longing, the regret, the isolation, and one hopes, the eventual peace. A wrenching story that all of us, gay or not, can appreciate, Denial shows what it is like to be ‘different’ in a world that demands sameness.” <br />—Dale Carpenter, author of Flagrant Conduct: The Story of Lawrence v. Texas <br /><br /><br />Denial is the debut release from The Atlantic Books, a long-form digital imprint of The Atlantic.

Terry, Jake and Billy go camping at Devil’s Dyke Camp. The setting is beautiful, right next to the lake, with the hope of lots of fishing, hiking and fun.<br />His two buddies, Jake and Billy, tried to pretend they couldn't hear him. They had so many other wonderful things to pay attention to, the beautiful scenery stretching for miles ahead of them as they sat motionless on the road, as the searing rays of the noontime July sun cast intriguing patterns of bitter, burning sweat lines running down each other's faces. It was not turning out to be a good trip. And Terry's temper was starting to show, which didn't help to defuse their problem.<br />“I just had those brakes replaced last month. What the hell is wrong with them?”<br />Terry's green eyes glistened with anger as he threw the driver door open with his powerful left arm. Jake, in the front seat, chanced a quick look into the back, where Billy just shrugged.

"Queer Joints, Wiseguys and G-Men" is a collection of posts from the author's now-deleted blog "Friends of Ours," and involves gay bars, Italian mobsters and FBI agents and their crossing paths during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Included among them are the following tales: Baltimore mayor Tommy D’Alesandro – the father of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – had Mafia ties, and provided protection for the vice rackets; FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover ignored an early warning about the Mafia Commission which allowed organized crime to spread; Texas mayor Sam Hoover was a mob associate who ran a burglary crew of teen boys which doubled as his stud stable; and Jack Ruby had extensive ties to the gay scene – and may have been homosexual – which the FBI investigated after he shot JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. The book also includes gay bar hopping adventures across the country during this pre-Stonewall era compiled from FBI files which had identified “notorious places of amusement.”

Max Morris's essay represents a radical rethink of Ray Blanchard and Anne Lawrence's work on autogynephilia. <br /><br />By examining their theory of the sexual origins of transgender identity from the point of view of evolutionary biology, Morris comes up with the surprising conclusion that they didn't go far enough. In what is surely going to be one of the most controversial articles of 2017, Max Morris has made a massive contribution towards new thinking on gender dysphoria and late onset transsexualism.
