The Queening of America – Gay Culture in Straight Society by David van Leer.
Paperback, 222 pages. Published by Routledge in 1995.
Excerpt from the description at Amazon:
“Since at least the end of the nineteenth century, gay culture – its humour, its icons, its desires – has been alive and sometimes even visible in the midst of straight American society. David Van Leer puts forward here a series of readings that aim to identify what he calls the “queening” of America.”
