Steven Petrow's Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners

Genre: Nonfiction; Author: Steven Petrow; Distributor: Workman Publishing

No, gay people don’t have different manners than straight ones, but they do face situations that would likely befuddle Emily Post. How do you come out to your kid? When two men get married, who buys the engagement ring? What do you do if your girlfriend pulls out a daunting bedroom device? Petrow dives into all these questions with thoughtful, measured advice. Sometimes too measured — it is decidedly odd to read a gay and lesbian etiquette book and never even chuckle. (Dan Savage he is not.) Still, from having kids to planning funerals, Steven Petrow’s Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners has most facets of gay life covered. Ms. Post would approve. B+
