The first anthology to survey the full range of gay men's autobiographical writing from Walt Whitman to the present draws excerpts from letters, journals, oral histories, memoirs, and autobiographies to provide examples of the best life writing from the last century and a half. The editor guides the reader chronologically through selected writings that give voice to every generation of gay writers since the 19th century, including a diverse array of American men of African, European, Jewish, Asian, and Latino heritage. Documenting a range of life experiences that encompass tattoo artists and academics, composers and drag queens, hustlers and clerks, it contains accounts of turn-of-the-century tarnsvestites, gay rights activists, men battling AIDS, and soldiers attempting to come out in the army.
