  Ronald Firbank

Ronald Firbank: Aggressive, Witty, and Unrelenting
 
Author and professor Don Adams argues that English novelist Ronald Firbank has been mischaracterized as a frivolous literary lightweight by some prominent critics. Rather, Adams maintains, Firbank was a radically parodic writer who upended the conventional novel's focus on ethics with a liberating expression of individualist aesthetics.

American Literature: Lesbian, 1900-1969
 
Lesbian literature between 1900 and 1969 exploited the "outlaw" status of the lesbian. This phenomenon is reflected in the stylistically and thematically diverse work of such writers as Sarah Orne Jewett, Djuna Barnes, Gertrude Stein, and Hilda Doolittle, among others.

  Gertrude Stein

Jewish-American Literature
 
Jewish-American gay and lesbian literature with its rich heritage, diverse subject matter, and thriving vitality has imbued American Jewish literature with new life. With some notable exceptions, American Jewish gay and lesbian writers have tended to be secularists; for them "Jewish" is not necessarily an indicator of a particular religious position or sensibility but an affirmation of ethnic and cultural identity.

Film Actors: Gay And Bisexual Male
 
Although gay male film actors such as Raymond Burr, Rock Hudson, and Charles Laughton have rarely been permitted the luxury of openness, many have challenged and helped reconfigure notions of masculinity and, to a lesser extent, of homosexuality.
