A Life Lived in Technicolor: Sean Strub's Body Counts
 
In his review of Sean Strub's new book, "Body Counts," Thomas Uskali finds that Strub's life is entwined inextricably with some of the most significant events of the American movement for equal rights. It is both a vivid memoir of one man's eventful life and a valuable social history that chronicles the beginning and the maturing of the gay rights movement, especially the terrifying first-wave of the AIDS crisis and the rise of ACT UP.

My Days and Nights with Henry Darger
 
Jim Elledge explains how he became fascinated with the work of acclaimed but misunderstood artist Henry Darger and devoted ten years researching and writing Henry Darger, Throwaway Boy: The Tragic Life of an Outsider Artist to prove that he was not a pedophile, sadist, or murderer, but rather a gay man who survived sexual and physical abuse.

American Literature: Gay and Bisexual Male, 1900-1969
 
There was frank and affirmative gay male American writing from the century's start, but it was usually published abroad or by marginal presses or remained private and unpublished. As the century advanced, there were marked increases in both the amount of frank gay male American writing and the amount of it issued by mainstream publishers.
