Touch of Persuasion (Men Of Wolff Mountain do Isn t every minority group fucked over by the values of the majority culture But the really important thing about being gay is that you are forced to notice how much sex roleifferentiation is pure artifice is nothing but a game I consider The Stonewall Reader a or less condensed modern history of the LGBT and is there anything better than a collection weaved together by the members of the community themselves from their own works or in their own words The result is outstanding and expansive than I expected And I am very pleased that this Watch for Me by Moonlight (The Midnight Twins, does not focus on white people alone but also includes people of colour Some accounts mildly touches on the gay movement s intersection with the civil and feminist movements too As these appear of an opinion than a fact further reading is advised Of course the flaws within the community specifically the still presentiscrimination against transgender people and The Mommy Makeover drag ueens is notismissed and it calls for action In the end this book makes my own identity shall I say robust and tangible Reading about those who have lived before me felt similarly had the same thoughts and fought the same afflictions is reassuring With knowledge of my own people s history I know myself better Anthologies are really hard to rate because there are

to even comment on it and especially following choosing audre lorde to open the book who talks about the intersection of her identities as a black lesbian and if you really wanted to o that a number of the authors talked about the intersectionality of the movement you Hunter Killer (Pike Logan didn t need to include the racist biteg edmund white in the intro where he claimed that he was less accepted as a gay writer and toni morrison and philip roth were universal writers Even today well meaning heterosexuals lament that I m considered a gay author Would they be eually shocked by a Jewish or African American writer Oh no sorry Philip Roth and Toni Morrison are universal authors also looking him up and finding out there was a LOT of incest in his family and he wrote a sexual relationship between a 15 yo and a 12 yo personal feelings i know When I was at school I loved history as a subject The orderly progression ofates and facts pointed to a linear and well oiled world that moved forward smoothly and confidently It was only much later in university that I began to be euipped intellectually to even to begin to uestion the tacit assumptions underlying the most basic tenets of historical factDates are important because they act as markers of important events the biggest problem is that these events subseuently become unmoored from their historical context and assume a life and significance all of their own and freuently totally out of proportion to the event itself One of these Brazen and the Beast (The Bareknuckle Bastards, dates is 28 June 1969 The event the Stonewall RiotsWhat amazed me about this anthology from The New York Library is how extensive its collection is A lot of the material is interview recordings many transcribed here for the very first time And the people given voice to by and large are the ordinary citizens either caught upirectly in the event itself or caught up on its marginsThis adds an extraordinary immediacy and life to the event that no matter of fact historical account can ever hope to achieve Long portrayed as the true beginning of gay liberation the people on the firing line at Stonewall were some of gay culture s most marginalised figures such as The Friend Zone drag ueens and hustlers People who literally had nothing to loseThis at a time when invisibility was a much sought after goal of gay assimilation Many gays at the time were horrified that the Stonewall rioters hadared sullied their good name thereby threatening their reputations and most likely livelihoodsGiven all that has been written and recorded about Stonewall a lot of its fundamental Flying Scotsman Manual details have been so enshrouded in mythic significance or cultural reification as to have been weirdly enough become unstuck in time like the narrator in Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt VonnegutWho threw the first object and what was it exactly What is the preciseefinition of a riot and can Stonewall even be called that if it went on for several nights Exactly how many people were involved How many were hurt or affected Why Alpha (Shifters, did the ueens throw pennies at the policeThis anthology is at pains to point out that Stonewall was by no means the first gay uprising of its kind it is just the one that History has afforded that iconic status toWhat this admirable anthologyemonstrates so clearly is that the truest form of history is a chorus of voices Not an echo necessarily but an interweaving of multiple strands of experience Here the precise facts themselves Whalerider do not matter so much in the endThis anthology is the closest that one can get to the mindset of Stonewall itself I think both before and after the event It also shines a rather uncomfortable spotlight on the current state of gay politics which is still struggling to articulate its truest form of historical significance Wouldefinitely recommend the audiobook if you plan on reading this because you ll get to hear a lot of the interviews from their original recordings I m glad I listened to this right before Pride month because let me tell you I am now ready to start a revolution As someone who s read a lot of academic work about Stonewall in the past nothing in this book was The Stonewall Reader Audible Audiobook UnabridgedNew York Public Library Author Edmund White Author full cast Narrator Penguin Audio Publisher. As well as forgotten figures like Ernestine Eckstein one of the few out African American lesbian activists in the 1960s The anthology focuses on the events of 1969 the five years before and the five years after Jason Baumann the NYPL coordinator of humanities and LGBT collections has edited and introduced the volume to coincide with the NYPL exhibition he has curated on the Stonewall uprising and gay liberation movement of 1969.
