Are You Guys Brothers? Book Cover

ARE YOU GUYS BROTHERS?
Are You Guys Brothers?, a question asked of male couples throughout the world, is a very personal and candid look at the topic through the lens of an immensely happy and successful 32-year relationship. This book is funny, deeply moving, and highly instructive, of particular interest to gay men and women who seek guidance in building and maintaining their relationships, and to heterosexual men and women worldwide who want to better understand not only gay people but also how to get past the roadblocks to intimacy in their own relationships.

"No one has done a better job of chronicling what it is like to be gay in America."

– U.S. Representative Barney Frank


Sex Camp Book Cover

SEX CAMP
A lighthearted fictional story based on the very real Annual Workshop on Sexuality, the nationally-renowned training that has been held for nearly thirty years at an Episcopal Church-owned retreat facility in upstate New York. To learn more about the book, please click on the book cover image.

"In his book 'SEX CAMP,' Brian McNaught ventures into places where most people fear to tread. His searing honesty combines with an overt ability to pose issues about human sexuality that desperately need to be faced, lest we continue to violate those who do not fit our security boxes. I commend his work but only to those among us who are courageous and radically open."

– Bishop John Shelby Spong

GAY ISSUES IN THE WORKPLACE (1993)
