Summary:Who's Who in Gay and Lesbian History is a uniquely authoritative and comprehensive reference work on the key men and women in the history of homosexuality from antiquity to the middle of the twentieth century. It includes biographies, with references, on figures - famous, notorious or unknown - in politics, social activism, culture and the arts, medicine, religion and other fields throughout Europe, North and South America, South Africa and Australasia
Expert authors from over a dozen countries have written on many figures, from the era of Sappho and Socrates to the age of Radclyffe Hall and Andr Gide. This fascinating volume reveals how important men and women who have had emotional or sexual preferences for those of the same gender have been in the 'canon' of Western arts, culture, religion and other areas of public life. It will be of particular interest to historians, political scientists, and specialists in gay, lesbian and queer studies or in social, literary or cultural studies
