Are people born gay? Is it an inborn trait, acquired condition, or both?
Scientists are still investigating why some people are gay while others are straight.
The controversy continues.
Some chose to live a gay life while others seek to explore the possibility of resolving their unwanted homosexual desires.
Diversity, Tolerance, and Acceptance is what Cohen believes and practices: Equality for all views of sexuality.
In Being Gay, Richard Cohen discusses the science of sexuality and why some may develop homosexual feelings, while others do not. Cohen affirms the individual's right of self-determination--to embrace their homosexuality and live a gay life, or to explore a different path for change. It is a human right to pursue love by whomever one chooses.

Being Gay is for those who struggle with uwanted same-sex attraction (SSA), those who have loved ones who experience SSA, and therapists & ministry leaders looking to help those who experience SSA.
Richard Cohen, former homosexual and psychotherapist, married with 3 children, struggled for much of his life with unwanted SSA. He tried desperately to find professionals who understood his condition and could help him heal. Because “it was so difficult to explain myself to therapists who didn't have a clue,” Cohen eventually became a psychotherapist and developed both a ground-breaking understanding of same-sex attraction and a comprehensive treatment plan for resolving unwanted SSA. Being Gay not only details Cohen’s personal journey out of homosexuality, but also recounts his experiences helping men, women and adolescents resolve their unwanted desires and fulfill their heterosexual dreams.
Praise for Being Gay
"Being Gay changed my life. I cannot express in words what this has meant to me. Your understanding about my homosexual feelings has given me hope and a clear plan for my life." Levi Jacobson
"I struggled and suffered in silence for years. No one understood how to help me. You alone did. Words cannot express my eternal gratitude." Ahmet Abadi
"In his book Being Gay, Richard Cohen has forged a path for those brave enough to look behind the veil of their sexual desires. This book will become a resource for generations to come." Rebecca Sand, Ph.D.
Words for praise about Coming Out Straight (former version of this book):
"In this self-help book, ex-gay psychotherapist Cohen writes for gays and lesbians who want to transition to heterosexuality. His comprehensive, well-written, well-organized, and heavily referenced guide views homosexuality as a symptom of disrupted affiliation with the same-sex parent and incomplete feelings of maleness/femaleness, building on the theories of Joseph Nicolosi and Elizabeth Moberly. Cohen's approach is sympathetic and rational and leans mostly on psychosocial factors, but he also assumes nondenominational religious affiliation."
—The Library Journal, July 2001
Being Gay (formerly titled Coming Out Straight) is available in Spanish, Italian, Croatian, Polish, German, and soon Portuguese.
