In addition to becoming a nationwide bestseller, Jocks changed the face of athletics forever. Gay athletes realized they were not alone, young gay athletes discovered role models, and straight people learned that gay people are their teammates and coaches. Much has changed since its publication in 1998: Gay jocks are coming out even in high school, gay sports teams compete in every major city, and in almost every major sport-even testosterone-fueled contests such as rodeo, snowboarding, and mountain biking-there are openly gay competitors. But the locker room is still far from a friendly place for out athletes, so with "Jocks 2," author and journalist Dan Woog introduces us to a group of gay athletes including:

The first openly gay college athletic director in the United States. .
A gay mountaineer who became the first deaf instructor hired by Outward Bound. .
An Ironman competitor. .
An HIV-positive former street hustler whose life was changed by wrestling. .
A student manager driven from his college team by the athletes he admired. .
A baseball fanatic who finally found self-esteem on the diamond.

These pointed, dynamic, and often triumphant profiles of gay athletes continue the tradition of illustrating that gay people are the friends, colleagues, neighbors, and teammates of all Americans.

A valuable resource for libraries, educators, coaches, and school counselors in overcoming stereotypes, providing encouragement for gay youth, and dispelling myths about sexuality among athletes.

Dan Woog is a journalist, educator, soccer coach, and gay activist. He is the author of 12 books, including "Jocks; Gay Men, Straight Jobs"; and "Schools Out." His articles and essays have appeared in "The New York Times, Sports Illustrated," and "USA Today," and he is a contributing writer for "The Advocate "magazine. He lives in Westport, Connecticut.
