Why is gay life more complex? Why are our relationships so challenging? Is there a deeper reason why our relationships and lives as gay men are more difficult?
Heterosexual equivalency shows us the difference between straight and gay environments. We assume that the kind of relationships that straight people have, we can have as easily. But in the absence of heterosexual equivalency – our approaches fail and create confusion and hopelessness.
Once we understand the concept of heterosexual equivalency – we can have a deeper acceptance of what we need to do to succeed in our relationships.
