Today gay history is a thriving discipline, and the story has been told countless times, often more engagingly. For general readers, I recommend John Loughery's "The Other Side of Silence" and Lilian Faderman's "Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers." But for students and scholars, this is a model of historical research and an inspiration.
I found this book very interesting especially in how the gay rights movement had some of the same issues and challenges that the Civil rights movement faced and the women's rights movements had and how all of these movements would kind of coalesce in the 60's The discussion of the creation of a Gay identity was informative and I would have liked to seen more on that. the author makes several suggestions in the afterwards on books that have been written since his that could be helpful on this topic.Read more ›
