Heroes and Exiles Gay Icons Through the Ages, Ambrose, Tom
1 Ambrose, Tom Heroes and Exiles Gay Icons Through the Ages
U. K. New Holland 2010 1847734685 / 9781847734686 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
216 indexed pages. Demonised by the Church throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, homosexuals became the scapegoats of society, constantly facing exile or a brutal death. In "Heroes to Exiles", the human cost of this long exile is told through the lives of the most eminent homosexual men and women in history. Some were artists like the wild living Benvenuto Cellini or the repressed Edward Lear. Others were poets such as Thomas Gray, W. H. Auden or novelists such as Henry James and A. J. Symonds. Their places of refuge changed through the centuries from Italy in the 18th, to Paris in the 19th and Berlin, California and Tangier in the 20th. Some experiences were tragic, like those of William Beckford, Lord Byron or Oscar Wilde, and some were triumphant, like the remarkable story of the Ladies of Llangollen who became the most famous lesbians in Europe. Often treated with outright suspicion, homosexuals were targets for the totalitarian dictatorships of the 20th century. As such they were consigned in their tens of thousands to exile in Siberia or to the Nazi death camps. Even when peace returned after World War II most democracies still proscribed homosexual behaviour, forcing the Americans Paul Bowles and James Baldwin to seek exile in Europe and North Africa. Today the tolerance of Ancient Greece has returned to most Western societies although homosexuals are still persecuted in some Islamic countries such as Iran. In "Heroes to Exiles", Tom Ambrose asks if we have finally realised that sexual orientation is as irrelevant to character and achievement as gender and skin colour and if the long exile has ended.

Australia ASCM Publications 1985 0959285334 / 9780959285338 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 8vo 
212 pages including b/w illustrations. A collection of articles, poems and personal re?ections that deals with God and human sexuality in an honest, loving and sometimes controversial way. It seeks to answer a need expressed by many people for resources of this kind, and in doing so disregards the boundaries of conformity and conservatism. Christians are no exception. Caught between the promised paradise of God’s love in and through each other and the oppressive hell of a fear-full exploitation, we are all ill at ease as sexual beings. So this book is important because in it we find Christians re?ecting on their experience of sexuality. We hear cries of pain and anger, celebrations of the sensual, questioning thought and uncertainties, stories of growth.

Australia Leichhardt Womens Community Health Centre 2007 0975810979 / 9780975810972 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
viii + 214 pages. This book contains the personal accounts of Australian women who have lived through a relationship breakdown due to their male partner’s bisexuality or homosexuality. Despite feeling overwhelmed at first, each woman found previously undiscovered inner strengths in the course of her journey. These powerful narratives, told in the women’s own voices, describe how their partner’s sexuality was revealed, how they dealt with the crisis, and the inner qualities that each one drew upon in order to move on with her life. The title, "His Secret, Her Story" refers to the common perception of many women in this situation that they do not have the right to discuss what is happening in their life because it would involve ‘outing’ their partner to family or friends. This leaves many women isolated and unable to access emotional support at a time when they need it most. But this is not just His Story, - it is Her Story too.

U.S.A. Villard 2001 0375756981 / 9780375756986 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
188 pages. I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues ...At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one's ever asked them before.' Eve Ensler A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities and colleges throughout the world, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement -- V-Day -- to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.

U.S.A. Ave Maria Pr 1992 0877934797 / 9780877934790 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
175 pages. The hunger for intimate human relationships calls from deep within us. Your Sexual Self, a healing and formative journey, explores the process of growth that we all must pursue to satisfy this hunger. It invites us to understand and accept our sexuality as the energy and power that enables us to share real intimacy; that enables us to look closely at the process of personal growth that we must pursue to fulfill the hunger for love. The authors help us examine the many seasons of our lives: from the prenatal stage, through infancy, childhood and adolescence, and into young, middle and later adulthood. In each stage they help us re?ect on the power of our sexuality as an awakening call, an energy to explore, and the power to relate. They outline the tasks that we must perform and the needs that must be met at each stage if we are to grow toward maturity in our sexual and relational lives. Their re?ection questions gently lead us back to past hurtful experiences that may have prevented our natural development, offering a way toward healing and growth. The process of learning our own sexual story is a very personal one. It provides us with much "homework for relationships" as we grow toward maturity as Christian lovers. Your Sexual Self is a sensitive and compassionate guide for personal growth, affirming the goodness of creation and the gift of human love. Moderate discoloration in the cover.

The History of Sexuality Vol 1: An Introduction, Foucault, Michel
18 Foucault, Michel The History of Sexuality Vol 1: An Introduction
U. K. Penguin 1990 Reprint Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
168 indexed pages. Why has there been such an explosion of discussion about sex in the West since the seventeenth century? This discourse, Michel Foucault argues, gathered momentum in the Victorian age (which was not repressive in the way we commonly imagine). Now, with sexuality under ever-increasing scrutiny, many people suppose that we are becoming more liberated, less repressed. Is this really so? Here one of France’s greatest intellectuals explores the evolving social, economic and political forces that have shaped our attitudes to sex. In a book that is at once controversial and seductive, Foucault describes how we are in the process of making a science of sex which is devoted to the analysis of desire rather than the increase of pleasure. Here Foucault is at his polemical best. He brilliantly succeeds in turning commonplaces on their heads, permitting us to see that, like any notion that has become a part of conventional wisdom, they can be viewed in at least two ways. He shatters the myth of Victorian sexual repression and exposes an era which rapidly sexualised all social relations.
