About this title


An illustrated history, complete with photographs, documents, and other archival material, captures the lesbian and gay struggle for equal rights in the U.S. throughout the past one hundred years. 20,000 first printing.


During the 1994 Stonewall 25 celebrations--commemorating the riots that began the gay liberation movement--the New York Public Library sponsored a hugely popular exhibit of gay and lesbian history entitled "Becoming Visible." Exhibit curators Fred Wasserman and Molly McGarry have created an impressive book based on that collection, not only a major contribution to gay and cultural studies, but vital reading for anyone interested in American history. Rather then present a strictly historical narrative, Becoming Visible arranges its material in loose categories--Stonewall, Social Worlds, Organizing--that provide a frame yet allow for graceful, informative, and resonant overlapping. The book is centered on post-Stonewall gay and lesbian life, but Wasserman and McGarry supply readers with a wide range of illustrative archival material--from advertisements for 1920s drag balls to the covers of 1950s lesbian pulp novels, from photos of turn-of-the-century all-women social clubs to 1940s gay male "physique" magazines. And while Becoming Visible is filled with hundreds of photos, prints, posters, and flyers--many printed for the first time--its extensive text is well researched, highly informative, and beautifully written. --Michael Bronski
