A unique and hugely absorbing narrative history of gay life—from Oscar Wilde to the first gay marriage performed in San Francisco in 2004—by the award-winning journalist and distinguished author of Out in the World and Sex- Crime Panic.

He is also the author of In Search of Gay America, winner of the 1990 American Library Association prize for gay and lesbian literature.
