A literary criticism of the book "Covering: The Hidden Assault on Our Civil Rights," by Kenji Yoshino, is presented. The book defines covering as toning down a disfavored identity to fit into mainstream. This phenomena is explained within the context of gay life. The pressure to convert gay people into straights and its implications for the civil rights of gay people are discussed.
