The people you will meet in this book are the kind you will never see in a Gay Pride march or trying to attract attention to their sexual orientation. They accept their homosexuality as a fact of life rather than as a way of life. They could be your next-door neighbors or your colleagues at work or the bishop of your church or your government representative - and you may have no suspicions that they are "gay." They might even be married with children. They could be called "the silent gay majority" - except that many do not like the term "gay." As one of them said: "I don't want to live in a gay ghetto. I have no more pride in my sexual orientation than I would have if I was heterosexual. It's the way God and nature made me and I accept it. But I have no wish to flaunt it."
