This book explores the process of men reconciling their
spirituality and homosexuality. Using an organic transpersonal
research method, 12 gay men participated as coresearchers in
semi-structured interviews. The major themes of the study were:
Self-denial, Exploration, Affirmation, and Self-acceptance. Some of
the ancillary themes were: Early spiritual connection, Early
awareness of same-sex attraction, Early awareness of
societal/familial attitudes about gayness, Rejection by others
because of gayness, and Lack of models for how to be. Coresearchers
were also asked questions to illuminate shifting meaning ascribed
to spirituality and gayness over time. The majority reported that
the meaning of gayness had become more positive over time. Less
homogeneity was found in the shifting meaning of spirituality. The
research project supports that the spiritual journey of gay men has
unique features, and posits new ways to research the intersections
of homosexuality and spirituality.
