Title

Here Because We're Queer: Inside the Gay Liberation Front of Washington, D.C., 1970-72

Subject

In a clear-eyed, often humorous, sometimes touching account of the Gay Liberation Front of Washington, D.C., Brian Miller recalls an often ignored moment in D.C. history. Here Because We're Queer is a rare look inside a single GLF group in the early 1970s. The book's examination of the political passions of the time--in conflicting agendas, housing experiments and angry actions--will seem surprisingly familiar to today's readers. Based on more than 50 interviews with participants, this memoir/history relates how a positive new gay consciousness changed individual lives and helped create a community.
