This paper paper reviews three recent articles on the topic of homosexuality . It discusses Charles Kaiser's article, "The Long Road to Invisibility," which deals with the question of "visibility" and the history of the general awareness of and acceptance of homosexuality within general society in America. It looks at an unattributed article in "The Economist", "Latin American Gays: Living La Vida Loca," which deals with homosexuality in Latin America, a society which emphasizes and prizes conventional masculinity. The third article, Lee A. Beaty's "Identity Development of Homosexual Youth and Parental and Familial Influences on the Coming Out Process," is a literature research article on the coming out process and the influence of family acceptance in homosexual psychology. It examines how all three provide an interesting cross-section of some of the issues related to this alternate but increasingly accepted lifestyle.

From the Paper:

"Charles Kaiser's article, "The Long Road to Invisibility," looks at the history of social acceptance of homosexuality throughout the last two-thirds of the twentieth century through the eyes of pioneering gay activist Frank Kameny. He (2000, April 30) begins with an overview of 1930 to 1960, "one of the darkest of the dark ages for gay people in America" (p. 26). Overtly homosexual characters were absent from films and books, and those whose behavior was even slightly suspect were tragically doomed. Homosexuals had no positive role models to indicate that they could live happy, productive lives."
