by P Robinson

"This ground-breaking study focuses on the lived experiences of gay men who were born during the Twentieth Century. Spanning an era when homosexuality was illegal through the less repressed but no less difficult eras of gay liberation and the HIV-AIDS epidemic, an understanding of what it is to be gay is shown to be historically contingent. The men's personal stories include their experiences of being closeted in the years following World War II and the Cold War, the exuberance, and, for some, personally challenging times of gay liberation and the disco culture of the 1970s, to a time of fear and grief during the HIV-AIDS epidemic. Through a series of interviews, this book illustrates the significant shifts in sexual attitudes, culture and tolerance during a most turbulent era for homosexual men."--Jacket.… (more)
