About the Author
Ken Schneck is the producer and host of the award-winning radio program This Show Is So Gay. He is an associate professor at Baldwin Wallace University, where he teaches courses on antiracism, ethical leadership, and creating community-based change. Schneck combed the catalogues of libraries and museums to collect images and narratives that embody the experience of Cleveland's LGBTQ community; however, the most rewarding gems were unearthed pouring over albums in attics, leafing through old newspapers in basements, and listening to stories at kitchen tables.

This is not just text, but also has a great many photographs that must have been hard to locate. It really captures some of the spirit and emotion of those times (not so long ago) when LGBT folks were just coming out and demanding their equal rights. Every city should be so lucky to have their own "Ken" to help keep alive the bravery of those who started the struggle not so long ago.
Taken as a whole, the imagery is at once intimate and public, lighthearted and somber, nostalgic and forward-looking – a magnificent, inspirational collage that deserves to be on the bookshelves of any engaged Clevelander whether LGBTQ or ally.
