Pictures and Passions: A History of Homosexuality in the Visual Arts  
Hardcover, 1999 

Pictures and Passions is the first comprehensive survey of gay and lesbian visual expression in all media, from the dawn of time to the present day. Superseding more narrowly focused studies, this sweeping overview-encompassing art by, for, or about lesbians and gays-scans a panorama of visual images across the world and across time, from Europe and North America to China and Australia, from the Stone Age to the Stonewall riot and beyond. The walls of prejudice and silence that have long imprisoned a visual heritage rich in beauty, passion, and humor-some of it still suppressed-have at last been broken down.
