Even the phrase coming out of the closet changed meaning from 1950 until 2000. At mid century the described a man who had accepted that he was gay, but gradually it began to mean sharing that knowledge with others: other gays, friends, and finally employers and family members. At all times the process was complex hurdles facing the men. By viewing the lives of different characters we see how some men successfully coped and where others failed. The stories are a mix of satisfaction and frustration, joy and even tragedy, but it highlights how the process changed over fifty years. The myth that learning that one is gay has always been the same is dispelled and a major gap in gay history, the lives of individual ordinary men, is illuminated by these varied stories.
