Inspiring Stories of Eight Men and Women
Who Left Straight Marriages and Came Out as Gay

“Every person’s journey is different, whether it be the evolution so many Americans, like our president, have taken to support the freedom to marry, or the intensely personal path to accepting one’s sexual orientation and building a life lived in truth in a society and amid family expectations that can make that very difficult. When Opposites No Longer Attract recounts the stories of men and women in different-sex marriages who came to terms with being gay and navigated the tugs and currents of competing concerns to be true to themselves, treat loved ones with integrity and compassion, and find happiness and wholeness.”

— Evan Wolfson, Founder and President of Freedom to Marry
