Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940

Author(s): George Chauncey


Gay New York brilliantly shatters the myth that before the 1960s gay life existed only in the closet, where gay men were isolated, invisible, and self-hating. Based on years of research and access to a rich trove of diaries, legal records, and other unpublished documents, this book is a fascinating portrait of a gay world that is not supposed to have existed.
