Have we entered the era of the 'post gay'? Has the 'original' gay identity category been watered down by modernity? With the spectrum of sexual identities broadening and expanding at an undeniably significant rate, has 'gay' been diluted to a generic and amorphous category which is making the construction and maintenance of sexual identity difficult 'hard labour'? (p. 3). These questions provided the impetus for the research presented in Changing gay male identities, which explores the challenges involved in constructing and maintaining personal and sexual identities through the narratives of 21 gay men in England and Scotland.
