Abstract:

"Becoming Visible: An Illustrated History of Lesbian and Gay Life in Twentieth-Century America traces one hundred years of same-sex social worlds and political life in the United States: from the extensive gay worlds that took shape in city streets, bars, and tenements beginning in the early twentieth century through a national coming-out during World War II; the repression of the McCarthy era to the liberating forces of the 1969 Stonewall Riots and the gay liberation and lesbian feminist movements; the AIDS crisis, renewed activism in the 1990s; and much more. In text and images, the book celebrates gay and lesbian heritage, illuminates long-invisible worlds, and chronicles a vital aspect of American history."--Jacket.
