Living Out: Gay and Lesbian Autobiographies
This award-winning series aims to represent the full range of LGBT autobiography. It encompasses a diversity of autobiographies that cross all ethnic and national boundaries—from new autobiographies by fresh voices to memoirs by established contemporary writers, from posthumous and historically important autobiographies to reprints of classic autobiographies.
Dedicated to embracing the full range of LGBT experience, Living Out recognizes that autobiography is a crucial gay genre—an essential way of reclaiming individual lives and telling a larger, collective story.

Men I've Never Been
“A powerful, beautiful sock in the stomach of a memoir. It's filled with living, breathing, three-dimensional people, settings that are so vivid they have a cinematic quality, refrains and reprises that give the whole story a musical coherence. The ending will leave readers in a state of—I don't know what—grief? joy? wonder? hope? All of those and more. I can imagine this book changing lives.”
My Great American, Postindustrial, Midlife Crisis Tour
“Every good story is about longing, and Soderlind's The Change plunges into that aching universe from the first page. In pursuit of her own lost heart, she sets out on a road trip, and along the way beguiling obstacles and complications are tossed in her path, making this a funny and smart story of two midlife crises, the country's and the author's.”
