At once light and aching, BEFORE STONEWALL gives voice to a generation of men whose homosexuality forced them into lives of public exile. These stories articulate the tragic comedy of young love, the many ways to lose a family, and the rigid anxiety that comes from the fear of expressing too much. Set against a backdrop of New York’s theater scene and looming McCarthyism, this book is about everything love is up against and the smoldering, dormant rebellion in the time before Stonewall. BEFORE STONEWALL is the winner of Awst Press’ 2019 book prize, selected by T Kira Madden, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls.
