Art After Stonewall - 1969-1989 BookRegular price £45.00
MarsArt after Stonewall reveals the impact of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender civil rights movement on the art world.
Illustrated with more than 200 works, this groundbreaking volume stands as a visual history of twenty years in American queer life. It focuses on openly LGBT artists like Nan Goldin, Harmony Hammond, Lyle Ashton Harris, Greer Langton, Glenn Ligon, Robert Mapplethorpe, Catherine Opie, and Andy Warhol, as well as the practices of such artists as Diane Arbus, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Karen Finley in terms of their engagement with queer subcultures.
The Stonewall Riots of June 1969 sparked the beginning of the struggle for gay and lesbian equality, and yet fifty years later, key artists who fomented the movement remain little known.
This book tells the stories behind their works which cut across media, mixing performance, photographs, painting, sculpture, film, and music with images taken from magazines, newspapers, and television.

Stonewall - The Definitive Story Of The LGBTQ Rights Uprising That Changed America BookRegular price £15.00
On June 28, 1969, the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village, was raided by police. But instead of responding with the routine compliance the NYPD expected, patrons and a growing crowd decided to fight back.
The five days of rioting that ensued changed forever the face of gay and lesbian life. In Stonewall, renowned historian and activist Martin Duberman tells the full story of this pivotal moment in history. With riveting narrative skill, he recreates those revolutionary, sweltering nights in vivid detail through the lives of six people who were drawn into the struggle for LGBTQ rights.
Their stories combine into an unforgettable portrait of the repression that led up to the riots, which culminates when they triumphantly participate in the first Gay Rights March of 1970, the roots of today's Pride Marches.
Fifty years after the riots, Stonewall remains a rare work that evokes with a human touch an event in history that still profoundly affects life today.
Author: Martin Duberman
Stonewall - The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution BookRegular price £16.99
"Riveting...Not only the definitive examination of the riots but an absorbing history of pre-Stonewall America, and how the oppression and pent-up rage of those years finally ignited on a hot New York night." - Boston Globe
In 1969, a series of riots over police action against The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, changed the longtime landscape of the homosexual in society literally overnight.
Since then the event itself has become the stuff of legend, with relatively little hard information available on the riots themselves. Now, based on hundreds of interviews, an exhaustive search of public and previously sealed files, and over a decade of intensive research into the history and the topic, Stonewall brings this singular event to vivid life in this, the definitive story of one of history's most singular events.

Not only was this book educational and informative, but it was a pleasure to read over and over again!--Tatiana Quiroga, Director of Family Equity & Diversity, Family Equality
This beautiful, resourceful, informative and important addition to trans history helps our younger generation to connect to a deeper understanding of our past. Remembering the foundations of current freedoms, and aiding solidarity for our future, cannot be underestimated. It helps us all to be brave.--Dr. Wenn B. Lawson (PhD) CPsychol AFBsS
When we share books like this with young people introducing them to members of the trans community, we can begin to set them on a path of acceptance and understanding. I love this story not only as a possible first introduction to the trans community, but also as a provocation to use with students to discuss rebellion, revolution, protests and demonstrations.--Michael Rawls

The Stonewall Riots - A Documentary History BookRegular price £27.99
Sexuality researcher Jane Fleishman shares the stories of nine fearless elders in the LGBTQ community who came of age around the time of Stonewall. In candid interviews, they lay bare their struggles, their strengths, their activism, and their sexual liberation in the context of the political movements of the 1960s, 1970s, and today.
Each has spent a lifetime fighting for liberation, for the right to live, love, and be free. Each has faced challenges arising from their sexual orientation, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, politics, disabilities, kinkiness, nonmonogamy, and other identities.
With unflinching directness, the elders interviewed explore their struggles within the LGBTQ community:
- Were they the right kind of lesbians or gay men?
- Were they scrutinised more critically because they came out as bi?
- Was there insidious racism or classism keeping them down just when they thought they'd finally come home?
- Were they called names or looked down upon for choosing to be paid for sex, for being fat, for having kinky sexual practices?
- Were their political credentials dissected when they wore the wrong kinds of clothes or lived in the wrong kinds of places?
- What political movements made an impact on them?
- How did their sexual lives as young people inform their sexual lives as adults?
These are the stories of those whose lives were changed forever by Stonewall and who became agents of change themselves. We need to hear these voices, particularly at a time when our country is in the middle of a crisis that could shatter hard-won core values we've fought for again and again in our nation's history.
