If you ever wondered if there's more to gay life than Grindr and Drag Race, Andrew Ramer's Two Flutes Playing is the book for you. Call it legend, myth, vision, dream, queer history, poem, or prophecy, Two Flutes Playing offers an instruction manual for creating spiritual-sexual integration and embodied love-blessings. Written in language meant to be spoken aloud and savored by the firelight of hearts engaged in the dance of intimacy, it belongs on every soulful gay man's bookshelf next to Rumi, Starhawk, and Walt Whitman.

When Two Flutes Playing was first published it was revolutionary: it offered gay men a spiritual mythology that gave deep meaning to their desire. For those of us who grew up with the shaming culture of Judeo-Christian teachings on same-sex love this book was profoundly healing. Now, more than twenty-five years later it is still revolutionary. In a time where gay marriage encourages assimilation, Two Flutes Playing celebrates what makes us different and honors the unique gifts gay men bring to humanity--gifts that are essential to the planet's healing. It helps us recognize and recover the ancient wisdom of our hidden tradition. It will take you on a transformative quest to the heart of your queer soul, where you will connect with the Love that lights our lives.

This book tells secrets. You may not be ready to hear them. I'm not sure I'm ready either. But the ancient-new wisdom in Two Flutes Playing can light a spark in your gay/queer/straight/wild soul.
