Book description
Gregory Rogers wrote in his review: "The first major survey on homosexuality in America was conducted in 1979 and published as The Gay Report. The survey has since become a benchmark in this area and one of the largest of its kind ever conducted, with 5,000 gay persons of all ages and from all walks of life (and Christian denominations) surveyed on various aspects of their lifestyle and sub-culture. The study was conducted by English Professor Karla Jay, Ph.D., and journalist Allen Young, who holds two masters degrees. The work is cited even today in academic work."
