The Gay Liberation Book
A Part of LGBT History Written in 1971, still relevant nearly 50 years later.
In years following the New York Stonewall Riots, there was little pro-affirming LGBT literature available to the public. Edited by Gary Noguera and Len Richmond, they decided to approach many celebrities and noteworthy personalities of the day for contributions to the book, which evolved into an anthology of pro-gay affirming essays, commentary, poems, etc. Much original material was created by these contributors specifically for The Gay Liberation Book - including novel works by John Lennon, Allen Ginsberg, Gore Vidal, and William Burroughs, among others. The Gay Liberation Book, is a part of gay history, a great book.
