About: Loren Olson, the award-winning author of Finally Out: Letting Go of Living Straight, flings open the doors on the hard stuff in this candid and inspiring new memoir.

In No More Neckties: A Memoir in Essays, Dr. Olson shares the story of his life and its hard lessons. A practicing psychiatrist and a proud husband and grandfather, Dr. Olson writes about intensely personal events such as tragedy and loss; love and heartbreak; infidelity and betrayal; fear of aging; and never feeling good enough. Nearly everyone, whether they’re gay, straight, bisexual, or something else, can relate to his experiences.
Dr. Olson said, “These are topics we’re not supposed to talk about. But not sharing them cuts us off from others and leads us to feel isolated and disconnected. So often I hear ‘I feel like I’m the only one who’s ever felt this way.’ But I know that the only reason they feel so alone is because they’ve been too afraid to talk about the hard stuff. And we all have hard stuff… Knowing that others have felt the same relieves us of our shame and guilt.”

Loren A. Olson, MD, is a board-certified psychiatrist who came out at the age of 40. A father and grandfather, he is also a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and the recipient of the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness. He has presented findings from his research on mature gay men at the World Congress of Psychiatry in Prague. In 2009, Dr. Olson legally married Doug Mortimer, his partner of 30 years.
