The groundbreaking work on being homosexual in Americaā€”available again only from Penguin Classics and with a new foreword by Dan Savage

Originally published in 1971, Merle Millerā€™sĀ On Being DifferentĀ is a pioneering and thought-provoking book about being homosexual in the United States. Just two years after the Stonewall riots, Miller wrote a poignant essay for theĀ New York Times MagazineĀ entitled ā€œWhat It Means To Be a Homosexualā€ in response to a homophobic article published inĀ Harperā€™s Magazine. Described as ā€œthe most widely read and discussed essay of the decade,ā€ it carried the seed that would blossom intoĀ On Being Differentā€”one of the earliest memoirs to affirm the importance of coming out.
