Book Review: “Wide-Open Town: A History of Queer San Francisco to 1965”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As usual, I finished this book a long time ago and forgot to review it…
I liked this book. It’s full of stories of people who lived queer lives well before Stonewall, well before I came out (in 1973). I’d recommend it to LGBT people and allies who are interested in what things were like “back then”. So many of those chronicled in this book have died. We need to know and appreciate their stories and what they did to create the world that is changing for the better so rapidly today.
