Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only study of gay male history covering the United States since World War I.

Based on hundreds of interviews, new and classic texts, and little-known archival sources, an award-winning writer offers the first narrative history to consider signal moments, general trs, and the multiple meanings of "gay identity" in the whole United States from World War I to the AIDS era and "queer" activism.

The most readable, authoritative, and comprehensive investigation ever, The Other Side of Silence combines history and anecdote, politics and theory to reveal the personalities and textures of a largely unknown culture. A dramatic chronicle of seventy-five years of persecution and accomplishment, the book addresses both in equal detail: witch hunts in schools and the military, crusades of psychiatrists, the resistance long before Stonewall, the inspiring pioneers and activists.

From Newport and the private-party networks of Nebraska and Florida's Emma Jones Society to gay rodeos, athletes, and support groups, here are first-hand accounts of what it has meant (and might mean in the future) to be a sexual outsider in the United States.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on extensive interviews and archival sources, Loughery, art critic of The Hudson Review, traces US gay male identification in the context of discrimination, activism, and accomplishment--as portrayed in the arts and through turbulent times: the Jazz Age and the McCarthy Era, to Stonewall and the AIDS epidemic. The cover reflects the book's commencement with the 1919 scandal over entrapping gay sailors in Newport, RI. Includes enlightening b&w photos.
