From Publishers Weekly:

The gay Mattachine Society was founded in L.A. in 1951 by English-born Harry Hay, whose colorful personality and turbulent life are portrayed in a book written with a verve worthy of its subject. The underground organization skills he used on behalf of the gay movement were honed by years in the U.S. Communist Party, whose homophobia, notes freelance journalist Timmons, pushed Hay into a 13-year marriage. Anecdotes by Hay and his contemporaries greatly enrich this account of his film career; his numerous gay affairs, notably with fashion designer Rudi Gernreich and politically active actor Will GeerGrandpa Walton! ; his divorce; his break with the Party and hearings before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee. Today, at 80, as elder statesman of the gay movement, Hay remains active in the Radical Faeries network. Photos. Author tour.

From Library Journal:

"The trouble with Harry Hay," according to Timmons, "was his refusal to adapt to a reality he found unacceptable." Born to privilege, Hay turned to the Communist party, USA before founding the Mattachine Society, a homophile group organized in 1950. Hay's continuing insistence on highlighting the differences between gay and straight people challenges the assimilationist goals of the contemporary gay rights movement. Timmons has written a substantive biography, based on documentary sources and on extensive interviews with Hay and his associates over the years. Hay's importance in the emergence of a significant social movement merits this book a place in any collection concerned with gay or minority rights. Recommended.

Book Description White Crane Books. Paperback. Condition: New. 390 pages. In a galvanizing sweep through the Twentieth Century, award-winning historian Stuart Timmons chronicles the story of the man who founded the modern gay movement. After decades of searching and struggle, Harry Hay created the Mattachine Society in 1950, the nations first gay political group. Today, LGBTactivism is taken for granted. But over a half century ago, it required a visionary and courageous spirit to organize a stigmatized and closeted class of people. In this Centenary Edition of The Trouble with Harry Hay, Timmons documents those tumultuous early years of the homophile movement and the colorful life of its founder. This newly updated biography is a classic study of the man who started it all. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
