Through the prism of his own sexual past and present, with a wide array of references to pop culture, literature and history, Archer traces the rise and imminent fall of gay. Along the way, he cites historical... more...

  • A Woman Like Thatby Joan Larkin

    HarperCollins 2009; Not Available

    The act of "coming out" has the power to transform every aspect of a woman's life: family, friendships, career, sexuality, spirituality.

These accounts -- sometimes heart-wrenching, often exhilarating -- encompass... more...

  • Same-Sex Unions in Premodern Europeby John Boswell

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2013; US$ 18.95
