This ground-breaking book explores the experiences of gay men and their understanding of what it meant to be gay in the 20th Century: from when homosexuality was illegal through the less repressed but no less difficult eras of gay liberation and the HIV-AIDS epidemic. 
PETER ROBINSON has taught courses in sexuality and gender studies, sociology and history. His research interests include the affective lives of gay men and gay men's experience of social hostility and anti-homosexual prejudice.
