Same-sex intimacy, particularly between males, can be a challenge to maintain for gay and bisexual men, and extremely threatening to heterosexual men. 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. Brian McNaught and Ray Struble, both Irish Catholic, Midwestern children of seven, met in Boston in their twenties as one was beginning a career as a "gay activist" and the other was entering the world of commercial banking. Their love became the envy of their families and friends, marked by open communication, good humor, patience, and spirituality. They would need all four to navigate the mine-filled waters of childhood sexual abuse, alcoholism, intense religious and political opposition, dramatically-disparate incomes, a sexually-open relationship, aging, erectile dysfunction, and an often unsupportive and frequently dysfunctional gay community. Today, they are officially married, and the "gay activist" is now educating his spouse's former Wall Street colleagues on gay issues in offices around the world. 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.

Brian McNaught tells his own love story between him and his life partner, Ray Struble. It's a story that demonstrates true intimacy can be achieved between two gay men. It's a story about a love that has matured and mellowed into its fourth decade. It's a love that compliments and enhances the happiness that both Brian and Ray have learned comes from within.

Brian shares an honest story that includes past wounds and subsequent healing. Both Brian and Ray are survivors of sexual abuse and both are recovering alcoholics. The story shows the challenges of finding their way past their wounds to a place of safety where intimacy is possible. It also traces their individual spiritual journeys that have evolved in a fashion that has diverged from their original Catholic roots.

These guys have learned how to love, They have learned how to have fun. They know how to live a fulfilling life on life's terms. If ever an unhappy gay person needed a model to provide hope that he or she, too, could be happy, this would be the book for him or her to read. This is a book for those gay men who fear that life ends at forty, If ever a gay person was looking for hope that an intimate relationship with another gay person is possible, read on!

Are You Guys Brothers?This is a book that walks the talk. Many noted national and international speakers can be eloquent and inspiring, but do they live the reality of their talk? The noted speaker and gay educator, Brian McNaught does, and "Are You Guys Brothers?" proves it. Diogenes, we are told, used to walk around in the daylight with a lighted lamp looking for an honest man. If he met Brian McNaught, he could blow out that lamp! Brian is an honest man and he turns the spotlight on himself and on his long term relationship with his lover and life partner and spouse. As he shares that story with all its chiaroscuro elements, he seems to be telling me that story in a personal and intimate sharing. You will feel that too. Many of his insights will bring an "Aha!" response, others will rest less easily. Brian is honest and he does not paint his picture with vanilla. There is struggle and pain, there is achievement and happiness. It is book for all, for couples who are gay and who are on the same journey, for couples who are straight to see that their journey is also mirrored here, and for singles of any orientation who will appreciate the learning from a guru of life and love. For me, it did not call me to run out and find a partner, but it reminded me that I am happy being me, that the chiaroscuro of my life has been worthwhile and precious, and no longer needs lament but embrace. In bliss? No. Gay? Yes!

I am proud to have Brian and his spouse, Ray as part of my Family. I love Brian's books. They cross all lines-it doesn't matter what sex you are or what sex you prefer---this book is just about life.
I loved it and would recommend it to be read by anyone who wants to search out wisdom. It is written with warmth- which is not surprising as Brian is a very warm and caring person.
Having just finished this book today, I am pleased to be able to leave my thought about it.
Thank you for a good read and some food for thought.

Warts and all, Brian McNaught "tells it like it is" in his captivating enactment of his marriage to a man. Microscopic in its rendering of his and Ray's loving, long-standing, sometimes vexing partnership, the book actually makes a universal statement applicable to everyone, pro and con. Without polemics, Brian is saying: Look, folks, THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. We love each other deeply. What's the big deal?
There is, of course, something absolutely special about Brian and Ray, willing to expose their lives for the sake of the Great Culture War that slogs on in America. Not since Nicholson's Portrait of a Marriage about his gay father and gay mother, Vita Sackville-West, and the eloquence of Andrew Sullivan's book on the subject, has the sting of bigotry been cast so impotent.
