Description
Almost a decade after the Stonewall rebellion of 1969 inaugurated the Gay Liberation movement, its impact on the arts remained minimal outside of a handful of gay-themed plays, films, and books. Pioneering gay author and publisher Felice Picano—a member of the Violet Quill Club, the founder of SeaHorse Press, and cofounder of Gay Presses of New York—tells how a small but influential group brought such playwrights and authors as Harvey Fierstein, Dennis Cooper, Brad Gooch, Joan Larkin, Martin Dilberman, Jane Chambers, and Karla Jay to print.

"A progenitor of the gay literary movement, as well as a poet, author and publisher, Picano recounts the creatively rich, landmark period during the 1970s and 80s when the first dedicated gay presses arose in New York City.... He covers the two decades following the 1969 Stonewall riots, outlining how he (and others) fostered a GLBT literary tradition that continues today, with writers such as Edmund White, Andrew Holleran, Larry Kramer and, of course, Picano.... This highly personal account of an important and often neglected area of gay history offers compelling material.... The most complete document of the gay book publishing movement to date."—Publishers Weekly
