Balance: The Life of a Gay Gymnast

It’s amazing how little has been written about homosexuals in gymnastics sports. This is the first book or major article I can recall.

UPDATE: In the comments, TCO had an interesting point:

You can tell how few gay male athletes there are in most sports by looking at how few died of AIDS in the 1980s. Figure skating was decimated by AIDS: both Olympic Men’s Figure Skating gold medalists from the 1970s died of AIDS, but AIDS deaths in other sports were quite low: one NFL player, one major league baseball player, no golfers, etc.”
