Of course, five years later it is dated, however it did bring to light several places that I would like to visit. The book also provided well-written brief histories of organizations. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805044809, Paperback)

It has long been a slogan of gay liberation that "We are everywhere." But exactly where is everywhere? Paula Martinac gives names, places, street addresses, and even apartment numbers in The Queerest Places: A Guide to Gay and Lesbian Historic Sites. Covering every U.S. state and most major cities, Martinac lists the homes of the queer and famous, notable historic sites, cemeteries in which notable deviants are interred, and even contemporary resources such as gay community centers and gay and lesbian research libraries. Martinac has a chatty style, an eye for amusing details, and a wealth of historical knowledge. If you have a hankering to see where Rock Hudson was born, where African American arts patron A'Lelia Walker gave her famous parties, or the rooming house where W. H. Auden, Gypsy Rose Lee, and Carson McCullers all lived together, this is the address book you need.
