Cinema's Hidden Queer History

by Andrew D on May 5, 2011

An intriguing study of the queer contribution to US cinema from its early beginnings pre WW I to the birth of modern Gay Liberation in 1969. Details the changing social climate towards homosexuality at different periods within Hollywood and American society in general. Full of interesting trivial about both long forgotten stars and others behind the camera to more renowned stars, directors, producers and publicity people. Landmark and detailed study of a subject hitherto largely ignored.
