As a gay man in the second half of my life, I have a personal understanding of some of the challenges and victories GLB individuals have experienced. Some classic areas of exploration often include the coming out process, isolation within the larger culture, ageism, transitioning from youngster to mentor, power and control issues, death and dying and the subsequent grieving process.
