Biographie de l'auteur :

George Chauncey is professor of American history at the University of Chicago and the author of Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940, which won the distinguished Turner and Curti Awards from the Organization of American Historians, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and the Lambda Literary Award. He testified as an expert witness on the history of antigay discrimination at the 1993 trial of Colorado's Amendment Two, which resulted in the Supreme Court's Romer v. Evans decision that antigay rights referenda were unconstitutional, and he was the principal author of the Historians' Amicus Brief, which weighed heavily in the Supreme Court's landmark decision overturning sodomy laws in Lawrence v. Texas (2003). The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, he lives and works in Chicago.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Gay New York brilliantly shatters the myth that before the 1960s gay life existed only in the closet, where gay men were isolated, invisible, and self-hating. Based on years of research and access to a rich trove of diaries, legal records, and other unpublished documents, this book is a fascinating portrait of a gay world that is not supposed to have existed.

Description du livre Basic Books (AZ). Paperback. Etat : New. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.8in. x 0.7in.George Chaunceys innovative and prodigiously researched Gay New York belies the myth of the pre-Stonewall closet and unearths a thriving gay culture in Gotham in the half-decade before World War II, before the decline of the fairy and the rise of the closet. (23) Contrary to Whiggish notions of severe homosexual repression up until the liberating 1970s, Chauncey argues that the gay male world of the prewar years was remarkably visible and integrated into the straight world in the first decades of the twentieth century. (12) In fact, it was not until after the close of Prohibition that new social norms and cultural anxieties forced a restructuring of urban gay life. To use the modern idiom, Chauncey writes, the state built a closet in the 1930s and forced gay people to hide in it. (9)Chaunceys book is rife with fascinating insights and conclusions, perhaps none so immediately surprising as the discovery that in important respects the hetero-homosexual binarism, the sexual regime now hegemonic in American culture, is a stunningly recent creation. (13) Tracing the rise of the word gay to encompass all homosexual men (be they previously classified as queers, fairies, trade or another term now considered much more perjorative), Chauncey argues that the ascendancy of gay reflected. . . a reorganization of sexual categories and the transition from an early twentieth-century culture divided into queers and men on the basis of gender status to a late twentieth-century culture divided into homosexuals and heterosexuals on the basis of sexual object choice. (23) Put another way, Chauncey argues that homosexual behavior per se became the primary basis for the labeling and self-identification of men as queer only around the middle of the twentieth century; before then, most men were so labeled only if they had displayed a much broader inversion of their ascribed gender status by assuming the sexual and other cultural roles ascribed to women.
