QUEER STREET is a voluptuous anecdotal history of New York’s gay life in the twentieth century – a literary ode, a swan song – that barrels through four decades of crisis and triumph up to the year of the floodtide of AIDS. Through film and philosophy, anecdote and broad history, James McCourt enlivens and examines the boundaries and boundlessness of gay history. “The gifts of this remarkably original writer are everywhere apparent” – Harold Bloom.
