Ultimately, love and a steady partnership are upheld as the ideal."

Lambda Book Report"Not just gay men, but anyone with a little humanity will find it rewarding to spend a few hours listening to these men." Hungry Mind Review..". a rare, intensive glimpse into another community and another culture." A Different Light Review"The 14 compelling interviews... chronicle gay male experience prior to the dramatic events of the last two years." On the IssuesJurgen Lemke's collection of interviews with East German homosexual men caused a sensation in the East, where it was hailed as "a milestone in the history of homosexual men in the GDR."

Together they provide a penetrating view into the lives of gay men in Germany from the time of Hitler until the final year of the separate socialist state."
