Young, Gay and Scared

   (1 review)

It’s the early 1950’s in Australia and Ryan Seaton has a dark secret. At twelve years old he’s discovered he’s a homosexual and in that decade being gay could be fatal. Added to that, his mother uses emotional blackmail, making his home-life miserable. Then his best mate confides he’s also gay, but the combined hostility of society, religion and the law, ensures that any relief is short-lived. Tragedy follows.

The decade known as the 1950’s was word-wide, the worst time to be gay, but out of the depths of despair a new period of enlightenment began. This is the story of some young souls  living through and surmounting  that awful decade.

This is an interesting and emotion filled read that gives an insight into how life was for gay men in times gone by. Although a lot of time has passed from the time in which this is set to present day and life has become easier for gay men it is still relevant today as much of the social stigma still exists and to some extent so do the difficulties. This is the story of Ryan and his struggles but also touches on the stories and struggles of others, Tommo, Albert and Jimbo, and how they were affected too. Their lives touched on and impacted on each others.
