  Decadence

Decadence
 
In its broadest sense, decadence refers to the fall of a society from a position of strength and prosperity to a state of weakness and ruin. More narrowly, members of the nineteenth-century Decadent movement in art and literature either describe aspects of decadent life and society or reflect the decadent literary aesthetic.

Marriage and Family
 
While glbtq people have formed unions, partnerships, de facto marriages, and many kinds of families for generations, one of the greatest shifts in the history of the family began in the 1990s when queer families began to insist more vocally that they receive the same societal benefits as traditional families.

  Lesbian and Bisexual Female Literature Since Stonewall

Lesbian and Bisexual Female American Literature Since Stonewall
 
Politics is implicit in much of the Lesbian Literature that immediately followed the Stonewall Riots. The "new," reactivated, women's movement had as much to do with the tone and character of lesbian writing during these years as the developing (largely male) gay liberation movement. In more recent years, lesbian literature has grown to address more diverse themes, though much of it remains politically inflected.

Gay Male Art in America: 1900-1969
