Read Dr. Olson's op-ed, "Barry Manilow and the Psychology of Coming Out Late in Life," in the New York Daily News here.
Dr. Loren A. Olson has frequently been asked two questions: How could you not know that you were gay until the age of forty? Wasn’t your marriage just a sham to protect yourself at your wife’s expense? In Finally Out, Dr. Olson vigorously answers both questions by telling the inspiring story of his evolving sexuality, into which he intelligently weaves psychological concepts and gay history. His book is a powerful exploration of human sexuality, particularly the sexuality of mature men who, like Dr. Olson, lived a large part of their lives as straight men —sometimes long after becoming aware of their same-sex attractions.
