There has never been a better time to show the world - both gay and nongay - the depth and breadth of the people, the history, and the communities that have been created by gay men and lesbians.
Out in All Directions presents a broad picture of the myriad cultures and achievements of gay people in society at large. Every chapter uncovers history, illuminates gay and lesbian life, explodes myths, and breaks new ground. The margins of text contain hundreds of sidebars: quotes, little known facts ("Did you know..."), and other outrageous comments ("Can you believe it?"). Cartoons, photographs, and other graphics are also included to illustrate and inform the the accompanying essays and articles.
Out in All Directions is an entertaining, informative, and exciting exploration of the many rich facets of all that we call gay and lesbian.
