                    A decade after the Stonewall rebellions, a small, all-gay press named Seahorse began along with Calamus Books and                        JH Press, which all came together to form Gay Presses of New York. Gay Presses of New York was not only the most                          successful gay press of its day, but the founders had made their move at the right time and place. Gay Presses of New                        York also played a part in the growth of what is now gay culture, consisting of bookstores, magazines, newspapers,                              theater companies, and art galleries. Many aspects of the arts, as they swirled around New York, Los Angeles, and San                      Francisco during the 1970s through 1991 were connected to Gay Presses of New York.

In Search of STONEWALL: The Riots at 50 The Gay & Lesbian Review at 25 Best Essays, 1994-2018
                    February 1st, 2019
                    ISBN13 9780578411088
                    The year was 1994. It was the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and, as luck would have it, the year in which a                           new magazine called The Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review was publishing its first issue (Winter ’94). The fact that The                           G&LR’s first year coincided with Stonewall’s 25th forever joined its fate with that of the founding event of the modern                           LGBT movement. This book commemorates the magazine’s 25th birthday with a collection of relevant articles culled                           from its 136 issues.

                    The Stonewall Inn was a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village. At a little after one a.m. on the morning of June 28,                         1969, the police carried out a routine raid on the bar. But it turned out not to be routine at all. Instead of cowering -- the                         usual reaction to a police raid -- the patrons inside Stonewall and the crowd that gathered outside the bar fought back                         against the police. The five days of rioting that followed changed forever the face of lesbian and gay life. In the years                           since 1969, the Stonewall riots have become the central symbolic event of the modern gay movement. Renowned                               historian and activist Martin Duberman now tells for the first time the full story of what happened at Stonewall, recreating                     in vivid detail those heady, sweltering nights in June 1969 and revealing a wealth of previously unknown material. 

Before Stonewall: Activists for Gay and Lesbian Rights in Historical Context

                    Before Stonewall: Activists for Gay and Lesbian Rights in Historical Context illuminates the lives of the courageous                               individuals involved in the early struggle for gay and lesbian civil rights in the United States. Authored by those who knew                     them (often activists themselves), the concise biographies in this volume examine the lives of pre-1969 barrier breakers                       like Harry Hay, Henry Gerber, Alfred Kinsey, Del Martin, Phyllis Lyon, Jim Kepner, Jack Nichols, Christine Jorgensen,                           Jose Sarria, Barbara Grier, Frank Kameny, and 40 more.

                    In stories of memories and truths told with an almost psychic feeling for the way we are, Fritscher’s use of the omniscient                     narrator’s voice inflects his stories with humor, irony, and drama. As a prose stylist, he is a marvelously talented writer                         and a tuneful wordsmith whose joyful use of language surprises and delights the reader. His stories rhyme with the gay                       archetype. The title story, taking place in the last hour of the “Last Pre-Historic Gay Period”—sixty minutes before the                           NYPD raided the Stonewall bar!—is a classic screwball comedy with dialogue to die for. “Stonewall is pitch-perfect.” —                        Thomas Long, editor, Harrington Gay Men’s Fiction Quarterly, Associate Professor-in-Residence, University of                                     Connecticut.

Men without Maps: Some Gay Males of the Generation before Stonewall
                    October 22nd, 2019
                    ISBN 022665611X (ISBN13: 9780226656113)
                    For many men of various sexual inclinations, the Second World War offered an unprecedented release from the                                   constraints of civilian life. However, when they returned home they had to face the harsh realities of a restrictive society.                       Men Without Maps continues the story of these men, whom John Ibson first gave voice to in The Mourning After. Here                         he uncovers the experiences of men after World War II who had same-sex desires but few, if any, direct, affirmative                             models of how to build identities and relationships. Though heterosexual men had plenty of cultural maps—provided by                       their parents, social institutions, and nearly every engine of popular culture—in the years before Pride parades, social                         organizations for queer persons, or publications devoted to them, gay men lacked such guides.

One-Dimensional Queer
                    December 6th, 2018
                    ISBN 1509523596 (ISBN13: 9781509523597)
                    The story of gay rights has long been told as one of single-minded focus on the fight for sexual freedom. Yet its origins                         are much more complicated than this single-issue interpretation would have us believe, and to ignore gay liberation's                           multidimensional beginnings is to drastically underestimate its radical potential for social change. Ferguson shows how                       queer liberation emerged out of various insurgent struggles crossing the politics of race, gender, class, and sexuality,                           and deeply connected to issues of colonization, incarceration, and capitalism. 


The Gay Liberation Movement: Before and After Stonewall

                    ISBN 1508183112 (ISBN13: 9781508183112)
                    This book explains the emergence of the modern gay liberation movement, from its early years prior to the Stonewall                           riots of 1969 and its continuation into the 1970s. Readers will learn about the Stonewall riots, the Compton's cafeteria                           riot, the Gay Liberation Front, the Lavender Menace, and more. This book also discusses the contributions of important                       people such as Harvey Milk, Audre Lorde, and many others. The difficulties and legacies of that era will become clear to                     students who may know only the outline of the early history of the movement.

                    ISBN 0415923298 (ISBN13: 9780415923293)
                    Rapacious dykes, self-loathing closet cases, hustlers, ambiguous sophisticates, and sadomasochistic rich kids: most of                       what America thought it knew about gay people it learned at the movies. A fresh and revelatory look at sexuality in the                         Great Age of movie making, Screened Out shows how much gay and lesbian lives have shaped the Big Screen.                                   Spanning popular American cinema from the 1900s until today, distinguished film historian Richard Barrios presents a                         rich, compulsively readable analysis of how Hollywood has used and depicted gays and the mixed signals it has given                         us: Marlene in a top hat, Cary Grant in a negligee, a pansy cowboy in The Dude Wrangler.

                    On the night of June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City. They intended to shut the bar                     down--part of the mayor's order to clean up illegal businesses. The cops didn't expect much trouble, especially not from                       the gay men and women dancing and socializing at the bar. At that time, most gay people were afraid to expose their                           homosexuality. They could be arrested for having sex with one another. They could lose their jobs just for being gay. By                       1969 a few gay people had started to speak out. They had filed lawsuits and staged peaceful protest marches to call                           attention to discrimination against homosexuals. But when the police raided the Stonewall, the bar's customers decided                       to take a stronger stand.

                    ISBN 147981685X (ISBN13: 9781479816859)
                    June 28, 1969, Greenwich Village: The New York City Police Department, fueled by bigoted liquor licensing practices                           and an omnipresent backdrop of homophobia and transphobia, raided the Stonewall Inn, a neighborhood gay bar, in the                     middle of the night. The raid was met with a series of responses that would go down in history as the most galvanizing                         period in this country's fight for sexual and gender liberation: a riotous reaction from the bar's patrons and surrounding                         community, followed by six days of protests. Across 200 documents, Marc Stein presents a unique record of the lessons                     and legacies of Stonewall. Drawing from sources that include mainstream, alternative, and LGBTQ media, gay-bar guide                     listings, state court decisions, political fliers, first-person accounts, song lyrics, and photographs, Stein paints an indelible                     portrait of this pivotal moment in the LGBT movement.

                    In the early-morning hours of June 28, 1969, police arrived at the Stonewall Inn's doors and yelled, "Police! We're taking                     the place!" But the people in this New York City neighborhood bar, members of the LGBTQ community, were tired of                             being harassed. They rebelled in the streets, turning one moment into a civil rights movement and launching the fight for                     equality among LGBTQ people in the United States.

                    The Violet Quill Club brought together the finest and most important gay writers to emerge after the Stonewall riots.                             Edmund White, Andrew Holleran, Robert Ferro, Michael Grumley, Felice Picano, George Whitmore, and Christopher                           Cox--these are the writers whose novels, plays, short stories, essays, and journalism defined what it was to be gay                               before that first announcement of AIDS.

                    Longtime Washington, D.C. health journalist John-Manuel Andriote didn't expect to mark the twenty-fifth year of the HIV-                      AIDS epidemic in 2006 by coming out in the Washington Post about his own recent HIV diagnosis. For twenty years he                       had reported on the epidemic as an HIV-negative gay man, as AIDS killed many of his friends and roused gay                                     Americans to action against a government that preferred to ignore their existence. Eight little words from his doctor, "I                           have bad news on the HIV test," turned Andriote's world upside down. Over time Andriote came to understand that his                         choice, each and every day, to take the powerful medication he needs to stay healthy, to stay alive, came from his own                         resilience.

                    ISBN 0233005862 (ISBN13: 9780233005867)
                    In June 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City. Pride charts that historic event, the rioting that                     followed, the radicalization and organization of the LGBTQ+ community worldwide, and the activism that has taken place                     in the 50 years since. It documents the milestones in the fight for equality between genders and sexualities, from early                         victories, to the gradual acceptance of LGBTQ+ people, to the passing of legislation barring discrimination. Rare images,                     documents, interviews, and essays from notable figures—including Peter Tatchell, the Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears,                             Asifa Lahore, Maureen Duffy, and Lady Phyll—provide a comprehensive account of the sacrifices and passion of this                           mass movement, the ongoing challenges facing the gay community, and the victories that have been won.

The Stonewall Reader
                    April 30th, 2019
                    ASIN B07G6TGP55
                    June 28, 2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, which is considered the most significant event in                       the gay liberation movement, and the catalyst for the modern fight for LGBTQ rights in the United States. Drawing from                       the New York Public Library's archives, The Stonewall Reader is a collection of first accounts, diaries, periodic literature,                     and articles from LGBTQ magazines and newspapers that documented both the years leading up to and the years                               following the riots. Most importantly the anthology spotlights both iconic activists who were pivotal in the movement, such                     as Sylvia Rivera, co-founder of Street Transvestites Action Revolutionaries (STAR), as well as forgotten figures like                             Ernestine Eckstein, one of the few out, African American, lesbian activists in the 1960s.

Pride: Photographs After Stonewall
                    May 7th, 2019
                    ASIN B07GFCGV8X
                    Fifty years ago this spring, the Stonewall uprising occurred in Greenwich Village—an event that marked the coming-out                       of New York’s gay community and a refusal by gays to accept underground status that was as important in its way as the                     Montgomery bus boycott was to the civil rights movement. As a direct outcome of Stonewall, gay pride marches were                           held in 1970 in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. The ultimate chronicler of New York’s downtown scene in                           that period, and therefore of pre-AIDS life in the gay community, was the late Fred W. McDarrah, senior staff                                         photographer of the legendary Village Voice. 

Toward Stonewall: Homosexuality and Society in the Modern Western World
                    January 1st, 2003
                    ISBN 0813925436 (ISBN13: 9780813925431)
                    As recently as the 1970s, gay and lesbian history was a relatively unexplored field for serious scholars. The past quarter                     century, however, has seen enormous growth in gay and lesbian studies. The literature is now voluminous; it is also                             widely scattered and not always easily accessible. In Toward Stonewall, Nicholas Edsall provides a much-needed                                 synthesis, drawing upon both scholarly and popular writings to chart the development of homosexual subcultures in the                       modern era and the uneasy place they have occupied in Western society.

Baby, You Are My Religion: Women, Gay Bars, and Theology Before Stonewall
                    June 30th, 2013
                    ISBN 1844656497 (ISBN13: 9781844656493)

                    Baby You Are My Religion argues that American butch-femme bar culture of the mid-20th Century should be interpreted                       as a sacred space for its community. Before Stonewall -- when homosexuals were still deemed mentally ill -- these bars                       were the only place where many could have any community at all. Baby, you are My Religion explores this community as                     a site of a lived corporeal theology and political space. It reveals that religious institutions such as the Metropolitan                               Community Church were founded in such bars, that traditional and non-traditional religious activities took place there,                           and that religious ceremonies such as marriage were often conducted within the bars by staff. 

Indecent Advances: The Hidden History of Murder and Masculinity Before Stonewall

                    ISBN 1640091890 (ISBN13: 9781640091894)
                    Indecent Advances tells the story of how homosexuals were criminalized in the popular imagination--from the sex panics                     of the 1930s, to Kinsey study of male homosexuality of the 1940s, and the Cold War panic of Communists and                                     homosexuals in government. Polchin illustrates the vital role crime stories played in circulating ideas of normalcy and                           deviancy, and how those stories were used as tools to discriminate and harm the gay men who were observers and                             victims of crime. More importantly, Polchin shows how this discrimination was ultimately transformed by activists to help                       shape the burgeoning gay rights movement in the years leading up to Stonewall Riots of 1968.

                    ISBN 0670016799 (ISBN13: 9780670016792)
                    In 1969 being gay in the United States was a criminal offense. It meant living a closeted life or surviving on the fringes of                     society. People went to jail, lost jobs, and were disowned by their families for being gay. Most doctors considered                                 homosexuality a mental illness. There were few safe havens. The Stonewall Inn, a Mafia-run, filthy, overpriced bar in                           New York City’s Greenwich Village, was one of them. Police raids on gay bars happened regularly in this era. But one                         hot June night, when cops pounded on the door of the Stonewall, almost nothing went as planned. Tensions were high.                       The crowd refused to go away. Anger and frustration boiled over.

Stonewall Revival: Tales of 53 Christopher Street & Other Theatrical Adventures

                    ASIN B079V523L2
                    Stonewall is probably the most famous gay bar in the world. As the site of the 1969 riots, it is widely regarded as the                             birthplace of the gay rights movement. Yet from 1970-1990, the space was inhabited by any number of other non-bar                           businesses.In 1990, Jimmy Pisano decided to open his first bar at 53 Christopher Street, where Stonewall previously                           stood. The business was a rousing failure, except in one respect. Though it lost money every year he owned it, Jimmy                         refused to let it close. He refused to let it revert to being another Chinese restaurant or bagel shop or any of the other                           irrelevant squatters.

                    The civil rights of LGBTQ people have slowly yet steadily strengthened since the Stonewall Riots of June, 1969. Despite                     enormous opposition from some political segments and the catastrophic effects of the AIDS crisis, the last five decades                       have witnessed improvement in the conditions of the lives of LGBTQ individuals in the United States. As such, the                               realities and challenges faced by a young gay man coming of age and coming out in the 1960s is, in many profound                             ways, different from the experiences of a young gay man coming of age and coming out today.

Long Before Stonewall: Histories of Same-Sex Sexuality in Early America
                    July 1st, 2007
                    ISBN 0814727506 (ISBN13: 9780814727508)
                    Although the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City symbolically mark the start of the gay rights movement, individuals                         came together long before the modern era to express their same-sex romantic and sexual attraction toward one another,                     and in a myriad of ways. Some reflected on their desires in quiet solitude, while others endured verbal, physical, and                           legal harassment for publicly expressing homosexual interest through words or actions. Long Before Stonewall seeks to                       uncover the many iterations of same-sex desire in colonial America and the early Republic, as well as to expand the                             scope of how we define and recognize homosocial behavior. 

Stonewall's Legacy: Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Students in Higher Education
                    September 29th, 2011
                    ISBN 111818016X (ISBN13: 9781118180167)
                    Contemporary American colleges are increasingly queer places, where significant steps toward inclusion of BGLT                               students have been made. Tracing the journey of BGLT students' emergence, which parallels the modern gay rights                             movement in America, this monograph provides an overview of data and theory derived from studying BGLT students                         and student movements in higher education. Offering context for the ways that previously marginalized students in                               higher education survive and thrive.

Generation Q: Gays, Lesbians, and Bisexuals Born Around 1969's Stonewall Riots Tell Their Stories of Growing Up in the Age of Information
                    September 1996
                    ISBN 155583356X (ISBN13: 9781555833565)
                    Generation Q--young gays, lesbians, and bisexuals born around 1969's Stonewall riots--is a culture made up of vibrant,                       diverse people who live in the fragmented end of the twentieth century, surrounded by a glut of information, instant                               gratification, and at once terrifying and fantastic possibilities for the future. In the words of one contributor, they have                             inherited "a virus, wrecked communities, memorials, the NAMES quilt, clinical trials, and the AIDS industry as a viable                         and 'noble' career choice." Yet these young men and women also possess joy, visibility, power, astonishingly strong                             support networks, and previously unimaginable freedoms. They exist within contradictions, and this amazing collection of                     true stories captures their unique experiences.

The Stonewall Riots
                    November 4th, 2013
                    ASIN B00GGRNF8K
                    In June of 1969, a gay bar in Greenwich Village, New York called The Stonewall was raided by police. This is historically                     agreed as the catalyst to set forth the gay rights movement. Facing persecution, prosecution and a violation of their civil                       rights, the homosexual community was mad as hell and they weren't going to take it anymore. The events at Stonewall                       lead to riots and demonstrations to open the dialogue and fight for the basic human rights of the homosexual community.                     Bluewater Productions is proud to present Stonewall, a detailed account of movement that started with Stonewall and                         continues to this day with the gay community celebrating gay pride each year to commemorate the brave efforts of the                         community. Writer Michael Troy and artist David T. Cabera tell the important footnote in gay American History.

Sex Workers Unite: A History of the Movement from Stonewall to SlutWalk
                    January 7th, 2014
                    ISBN 0807061395 (ISBN13: 9780807061398)
                    Documenting five decades of sex-worker activism, Sex Workers Unite is a fresh history that places prostitutes, hustlers,                       escorts, call girls, strippers, and porn stars in the center of America’s major civil rights struggles. Although their presence                     has largely been ignored and obscured, in this provocative history Melinda Chateauvert recasts sex workers as savvy                         political organizers—not as helpless victims in need of rescue. Even before transgender sex worker Sylvia Rivera threw                       a brick and sparked the Stonewall Riot in 1969, these trailblazing activists and allies challenged criminal sex laws and                         “whorephobia,” and were active in struggles for gay liberation, women’s rights, reproductive justice, union organizing,                           and prison abolition.

The Stonewall Riots: Coming Out in the Streets
                    May 14th, 2019
                    isbn13: 9781419737206
                    This book is about the Stonewall Riots, a series of spontaneous, often violent demonstrations by members of the gay                           (LGBTQ+) community in reaction to a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the                             Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The Riots are attributed as the spark                     that ignited the LGBTQ+ movement. The author describes American gay history leading up to the Riots, the Riots                                 themselves, and the aftermath, and includes her interviews of people involved or witnesses, including a woman who was                     ten at the time. Profusely illustrated, the book includes contemporary photos, newspaper clippings, and other period                             objects. A timely and necessary read, The Stonewall Riots helps readers to understand the history and legacy of the                           LGBTQ+ movement.

The Stonewall Riots: The History and Legacy of the Protests that Helped Spark the Modern Gay Rights Movement
                    December 6th, 2015
                    ASIN B01923YBHS
                    In 1969, America was still undergoing plenty of social turmoil, much of it the result of sweeping changes made via the                           Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War, which helped spark the counterculture. Protests were prominent across the                     country, and one of the movements galvanized during this time was on behalf of the LGBT community, who were often                         subjected to discrimination in all facets of life. However, LGBT rights were naturally on the backburner for most                                     Americans at the time, and it’s safe to say few considered them until hearing about the Stonewall riots that took place at                       the end of June 1969 in New York City. 

Rebels, Rubyfruit, and Rhinestones: Queering Space in the Stonewall South
                    July 1st, 2001
                    ISBN 0813529646 (ISBN13: 9780813529646)
                    While Scarlett O'Hara may resemble a drag queen, and Mardi Gras inspires more camp than a gay pride parade, the                           American South also boasts a rich, authentic and transgressive gay and lesbian history. In this chatty, free-ranging                               cultural survey, Sears (Growing Up Gay in the South) presents a vivid kaleidoscope of the mores and political activities                       of many gay Southerners following the 1969 Stonewall riots and leading up to the 1979 march on Washington. Sears                           unspools this history through portraits of activists and community organizers including Merril Mushroom, Jack Nichols,                         Lige Clark, Vicki Gabriner, Minnie Bruce Pratt and Sgt. Leonard Matlovitch who helped shape the social and political                           climate below the Mason Dixon line and often in the rest of the country.

                    This is a story of sound, rhythm, style and the power of music to transform a culture. It’s about rock and roll, pop, disco,                       rap, funk, soul and R&B. It starts with the sounds heard on June 28, 1969 that ignited a revolution and lead to arrests,                         demonstrations, loss of life, political unrest, anger, fear and a plague. But, most importantly, this is a story of celebration!                     It’s the story of the gay anthem and how it empowered a group of second-class citizens to find its voice and claim its                           rightful place in society.

Foundlings: Lesbian and Gay Historical Emotion before Stonewall
                    October 8th 2001
                    ISBN0822326973 (ISBN13: 9780822326977)

                    What is it like to “feel historical”? In Foundlings Christopher Nealon analyzes texts produced by American gay men and                       lesbians in the first half of the twentieth century—poems by Hart Crane, novels by Willa Cather, gay male physique                               magazines, and lesbian pulp fiction. Nealon brings these diverse works together by highlighting a coming-of-age                                   narrative he calls “foundling”—a term for queer disaffiliation from and desire for family, nation, and history.

Young Man from The Provinces: A Gay Life Before Stonewall
                    November 9th, 1995
                    ISBN 0816642680 (ISBN13: 9780816642687)
                    Young, intelligent, and handsome, Alan Helms left a brutal midwestern childhood for New York City in 1955. Denied a                           Rhodes scholarship because of his sexual orientation, he soon became an object of desire in a gay underground scene                       frequented by, among many others, Noel Coward, Leonard Bernstein, and Marlene Dietrich. In this unusually vivid and                         sensitive account, Helms describes the business of being a sex object and its psychological and physical toll.

Out/Lines: Gay Underground Erotic Graphics from Before Stonewall
                    November 1st, 2002
                    ISBN 1551521237 (ISBN13: 9781551521237)
                    Gay male representation of sexuality has a long history of varied visibility and acceptance, but the 100 or so years of                           queer life before Stonewall were a period of unprecedented self-identification as well as renewed pressure to hide and                         suppress the erotic imagery of gay men in western culture. Out/Lines features a resurrection of erotic gay images, once                       virtually buried and invisible, that circulated in clandestine communities whose sexualized visibility was a potentially                             devastating risk—a wealth of approximately 200 previously unpublished "obscene" images from the queer pre-Stonewall                     underground.

Stonewall: The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution
                    June 1st, 1994
                    ISBN 0312342691 (ISBN13: 9780312342692)
                    In 1969, a series of riots over police action against The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village,                         changed the longtime landscape of the homosexual in society literally overnight. Since then the event itself has become                       the stuff of legend, with relatively little hard information available on the riots themselves. Now, based on hundreds of                           interviews, an exhaustive search of public and previously sealed files, and over a decade of intensive research into the                       history and the topic, Stonewall brings this singular event to vivid life in this, the definitive story of one of history's most                         singular events.
