Warren’s 1974 study is an early piece of scholarship of its kind, through which theories of identity formation had to be pushed to another level as the natural and necessary conclusion of taking the gay subject seriously. On the individual and communal level, Warren asks us to confront the effects of stigma, secrecy, and self-sublimation on the already complex enough process of becoming a person when, according to society, the person you are is either a deviant or delusion, doesn’t exist. Her survey is athletic in its critique, complicating institutional subjects from social theory to psychology to sexuality and the self by making valid, through a rigorous survey of society, community, and identity, the field of gender studies, queer theory, and identity politics that continue to impress further significance today.
