By the time Men Loving Men: A Sex Guide and Consciousness Book was published in early 1977, its author, Mitch Walker, was nearly a year into his growing alliance with Harry Hay, co-founder of the original Mattachine Society in 1950, and it had been almost as long since Mitch had composed a new essay, "Visionary Love," which first appeared in the Jan. 1977 issue of Gay Sunshine magazine. This essay and two sequels, all published together in 1980 as Visionary Love: A Spirit Book of Gay Mythology and Trans-Mutational Faerie, chart a course into the deeper waters of gay-affirmative psychology, from humanistic worthiness to relations with the divine. In this conversation, presented to the Uranian Psychoanalytic Club on Nov. 5, 2011, Mitch explored the context and intent of this newer direction, and touched on aspects of historical continuity leading to the emergence of Contemporary Uranian Psychoanalysis and its theory and practice today. He also read from the book and answered audience questions.
