Gay and Lesbian Washington D.C.

Availability: Ready to download

In the identity of gay and lesbian America, Washington, D.C., has a history, perhaps unknown, that begs to be acknowledged. This history ranges from the planner of this new city on the Potomac River to generations of gay women who fought, lobbied, and marched for the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Prohibition promoted the rise of underground clubs with back rooms for In the identity of gay and lesbian America, Washington, D.C., has a history, perhaps unknown, that begs to be acknowledged. This history ranges from the planner of this new city on the Potomac River to generations of gay women who fought, lobbied, and marched for the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Prohibition promoted the rise of underground clubs with back rooms for gays and lesbians to socialize in the 1920s. The history of these clubs and cruise spots reveals the migration of gay neighborhoods across the city, from Georgetown to Lafayette Square to Dupont Circle. In the 1960s and 1970s, gays and lesbians marched with Pride to be recognized. In the 1980s, they covered the Mall with a quilt to finally hear politicians utter the word AIDS. Today, the word is marriage: equal under the law and equal in the heart.

    Photos from DC history with more or less detailed captions, and an emphasis on the last three decades of the twentieth century. Lots of interesting stuff in here, but it is a bit of a jumble. Notwithstanding its title the book at points claims to be a history of LGBT DC, but what trans-related content there is suffers from forehead-smackers like referring to We'wha, a Zuni emissary who was born male but lived as a woman, as a "drag queen." Oy.
