A Queer History of the United States by Michael Bronski
first published 2012, paperback
Winner of a 2012 Stonewall Book Award in nonfiction
A Queer History of the United States is more than a “who’s who” of queer history: it is a book that radically challenges how we understand American history. Drawing upon primary-source documents, literature, and cultural histories, scholar and activist Michael Bronski charts the breadth of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history, from 1492 to the 1990s.
