    This is a really good interview (more of a conversation, actually) from a wonderful website called TheQuestAwaitsYou.com.

    The conversation is probably among the best I've seen about Dr. Brown's work as it relates to LGBT populations, in part because the people conversing with her are all gay men and all have a deep knowledge of her work, and of the unique issues relating to gay people. (The site itself looks pretty awesome as well...)

    Here are some choice quotes from the interview (emphasis mine):

    The full interview (as well as other stuff on their site) is well worth the read.

    Yes - really good stuff. Having been involved in the work of the Quest, I recommend it wholeheartedly if you striving to be more authentic as a gay man.
