Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Kahn (classics, emeritus, Colgate Univ.) gives a lucid account of "what it means to be gay in late 20th-century America" by examining the private and public lives of some 60 activists he interviewed in the New York City area. A series of short biographies chronicles the coming-out stories of lesbians, gay men, and transgendered persons (regrettably, bisexuals are omitted) of varied racial, religious, and ethnic backgrounds. He also discusses how their experiences have translated into activism in such areas as homophobic violence, law enforcement, the military, and AIDS. Kahn's clear-eyed, scholarly approach allows the subjects and their actions to speak for themselves, with poignant, affirmative, even harrowing results. An invaluable historical and social chronicle, this is also a worthy companion to more psychologically oriented coming-out guides like Michelangelo Signorile's Outing Yourself (LJ 6/15/95) and deserves a wide audience. Recommended for public libraries as well as academic or special libraries with gay studies collections.?Richard Violette, Social Law Lib., Boston
