A fabulous montage of word and image, this is the first book ever to chronicle the origin and evolution of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender culture in the San Francisco Bay Area. Capturing the international center of the gay experience as never before, and published to coincide with the opening of the Gay and Lesbian Center of the new main San Francisco Public Library—the only publicly funded archive of its kind in the world—Gay by the Bay contains over 200 full-color and black-and-white photographs of historical memorabilia, including correspondence, posters, buttons, and other artifacts. With anecdotes about Bay Area gay luminaries, past and present, and a foreword by acclaimed author Armistead Maupin, Gay by the Bay offers a scintillating look at a continually dynamic and evolving community.

About the Author:
Susan Stryker is a Bay Area writer, activist, and scholar, and has been a visiting faculty member in the women's studies department at U.C. Berkeley.

Jim Van Buskirk is director of the San Francisco Public Library's new Gay and Lesbian Center. His reviews of gay and lesbian materials have appeared in numerous publications.

Armistead Maupin is well known for his best-selling series Tales of the City, enjoyed by millions in both book form and as an acclaimed T.V. miniseries.
From Library Journal:
San Francisco, or Sodom by the Sea, as it has sometimes been called, has had a thriving gay and lesbian community for as long as people have been inhabiting the Bay area. Published to coincide with the April 18 opening of the Gay and Lesbian Center of the San Francisco Public Library, Gay by the Bay offers a deluxe tour of the city's queer history in words and many, many pictures. From fantastic 16th-century accounts of Amazon warriors to the radicalization of the Castro in the 1960s to the rallying cries of Queer Nation and the broad-based diversification of the gay and lesbian community in the 1990s, this title lovingly captures the flavor of a city most queers call home. Because of the limited geographical scope of the book, purchases will probably be limited to the Bay area, although it should be required reading for any gay or lesbian studies student and should be a necessary purchase for libraries with strong gay and lesbian collections.
