Originally published in 1971, Merle Miller's On Being Different is a pioneering and thought-provoking book about being homosexual in the United States. Just two years after the Stonewall riots, Miller wrote a poignant essay for the New York Times Magazine entitled 'What It Means To Be a Homosexual' in response to a homophobic article published in Harper's Magazine. Described as 'the most widely read and discussed essay of the decade,' it carried the seed that would blossom into On Being Different - one of the earliest memoirs to affirm the importance of coming out.
