4.0 out of 5 stars A scandal laid bare, November 6, 2011
Same-Sex Affairs is a fascinating look at the rise of urban homosexuality in the early 20th Century.

The book is built around the 1912 YMCA Scandal in Portland, Ore., a little known and poorly documented story that dominated newspapers of the day, in particular E.W. Scripps' newspaper, The Portland News.

Using many never-before seen historical documents, this book details the politics and pressures in Progressive Era Portland on the homosexual community. Further, it shows that politics played a far bigger role than sexuality in the scandal.

An academic treatment of this important event, done in the finest fashion, Same-Sex Affairs is a great addition to any library.
