When Brooklyn Was Queer

When Brooklyn Was Queer

Audiobook CD - 2019
Rate this:
The never-before-told story of Brooklyn's vibrant and forgotten queer history, from the mid-1850s up to the present day. A groundbreaking exploration of the LGBT history of Brooklyn, from the early days of Walt Whitman in the 1850s up through the women who worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II, and beyond. No other book, movie, or exhibition has ever told this sweeping story. Not only has Brooklyn always lived in the shadow of queer Manhattan neighborhoods like Greenwich Village and Harlem, but there has also been a systematic erasure of its queer history. Ryan is here to unearth that history for the first time and show how the formation of Brooklyn is inextricably linked to the stories of the incredible people who created the Brooklyn that is known today.
