Last nite I posed a Jack London, was he or wan't he, on Literature - today the moderator suggests here on history instead.

Last couple of years a new biog on writer Jack London was written. Did that author or another made a gay connection with Jack London historically in his youth pre=marriage days in Oakland as a young socialist or with Coxey's Army surrounding his arrest for "vagrancy" in Erie/Buffalo for which young London was tossed into a cell upon conviction?

London's daughter, I think in a biography of him, admitted that he was gay. Anyway, there was never any doubt.
