The virtually unknown existence of gay, bisexual, and queer men and women in American popular culture from the late 1800s through the present day is a fascinating topic for many readers, regardless of their own orientation. Whether it's the father of bodybuilding, famous closeted entertainers or sports stars, or the leading characters in current television shows and films, queer men and women have changed the face of American popular culture and society for over a century. Ironically, most of the fascinating information, anecdotes, and revealing facts about well-known figures in American culture are virtually unknown to the typical U.S. citizen.

Elledge's "Queers in American Popular Culture" covers a wide variety of historical and current topics that documents how the queer community has been--and continues to be--one of the most significant shapers of American popular culture. Currently, no other book covers queer topics in American popular culture as broadly as this text.
