This work includes over 770 articles on a wide variety of topics which directly or indirectly relate to male and/or female homosexuality. The varied articles address topics, persons, etc., in many different cultures throughout all periods of history, covering general topics, social and political movements, specific ideas and theories, a variety of literary and scientific topics, and more. There are many biographies of gay men, lesbians, and others included; the personalities were selected for many different reasons. Most are included for being notable in or for making significant contributions to gay and lesbian history, political or church leadership, philosophy, social theory or the arts and music. Due to space limitations, separate biographical entries are not given for living persons....This is a work that can not only answer many questions, but even more importantly, can spark new and deeper interests in a wide variety of topics dealing with the many aspects of gay and lesbian studies. It is a book that should be in every public, school, and academic library. - Part of book review by Stephen Fowlkes for Rainbow Round Table Book and Media Reviews.
