Summary:
Queer culture isn't a small, isolated subset of society, nor is it a new movement. The acknowledged father of bodybuilding, Eugen Sandow, was gay and lived in the late 1800s. Burlesque troupes in the early 1900s often featured female impersonators performing risqué dances--unbeknownst to their audiences. And the debate over gay marriage actually originated in the 1950s.
