  Contributor Biography:  Louis Godbout 
 
Louis Godbout is a collector and amateur historian. He is a longtime member of the Archives gaies du Québec and has participated in the preparation of several exhibits in Montreal. He has also produced three multi-media lectures that reflect his varied interests: Beaux enfans de Sodome, on eighteenth-century sodomitical imagery; Ébauches et débauches, on gay French literature from 1859 to 1939; and Le rideau rose, on French gay and lesbian theater before 1969.
