Another Mother Tongue: Gay Words, Gay Worlds

Judy Grahn
*Some passages and ideas in this book are transphobic, racist or colonialist* Judy Grahn attempts to reconnect homosexuals with their hidden history. Blending research in mythology, etymology, and history with personal reminiscence, she examines the components of gay culture: the words (dikes, fairies, faggots); the symbols (finger rings, camp clothing, the color green); the participants; the history--among the Greeks, the American Indians, in Africa and China.
