A Queer History of the United States
By Michael Bronski
DBC 573, Available on BARD
Using numerous primary documents and literature, as well as social histories, takes the reader through the centuries--from Columbus' arrival and the brutal treatment the Native peoples received, through the American Revolution's radical challenging of sex and gender roles--to the violent, and liberating, 19th century--and the transformative social justice movements of the 20th. A Queer History of the United States is not so much about queer history as it is about all American history--and why it should matter to both LGBT people and heterosexuals alike. Some strong language and explicit descriptions of sex.
