The Homosexual vs. the United States of America, a Social History Book Discussion
Eric Cervini is an award-winning historian of LGBTQ+ culture and politics. He will discuss The Deviant's War: The Homosexual vs. the United States of America ($35.00 Farrar, Straus and Giroux). From a young Harvard- and Cambridge-trained historian, this book is the the secret history of the fight for gay rights that began a generation before Stonewall.
Based on firsthand accounts, recently declassified FBI records, and forty thousand personal documents, The Deviant's War unfolds over the course of the 1960s. It traces the forgotten ties that bound gay rights to the Black Freedom Movement, the New Left, lesbian activism, and trans resistance. Above all, it is a story of America at a cultural and sexual crossroads; of shocking, byzantine public battles with Congress; of FBI informants; murder; betrayal; sex; love; and ultimately victory.
