The Right Side of History: 100 Years of LGBTQ A...

Before, During, and After Stonewall: 100 Years of Heroes and History The Right Side of History tells the 100-year history of queer activism in a series of revealing close-ups, first-person accounts, and intimate snapshots of LGBT pioneers and radicals. This diverse cast stretches from the Edwardian period to today, including first-person accounts of the key protest that is at the heart of the 2015 movie Stonewall. The book shows how LGBT folk have always been in the forefront of progressive social evolution in the United States. It references heroes like Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bayard Rustin, Harvey Milk, and Edie Windsor. Equally, the book honors names that aren’t in history books, from participants in the Names Project, a national phenomenon memorializing 94,000 AIDS victims, to underground artists and writers. 1.

A Boy Named Phyllis: A Suburban Memoir , Hörbuc...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What's a boy to do? An only child, a little chubby (and carrying it low). By age six already a regular in the Sears Husky Boys Department. Young Frankie is also gay, and he's trapped in the aluminum-sidinged, lawn-sprinklered, what-exit - wilds of New Jersey suburbia. Imagine Elton John born to an Italian-American Edith and Archie Bunker, and you've got the picture. A Boy Named Phyllis is Frank DeCaro's witty gem of a memoir about growing up among working-class Italian folk in Little Falls, New Jersey. There are the usual trials and tribulations between little Frankie and his parents, Marian and Frank Sr., but this is no angst-ridden, coming-of-age gay memoir. Frank is funny, and A Boy Names Phyllis is the antidote to such books. It is the mid-1960s, and the DeCaros have it all: a living room that no one is allowed to live in; a complete collection of cardboard cutout decorations for every holiday; an Entenmann's factory around the corner; and a killer lineup of Friday-night TV - The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, Room 222, The Odd Couple, and, if you can stay awake long enough, Love, American Style. There's only one problem: instead of developing a crush on Laurie Partridge, Frankie gets a boner for Keith. He perfects a drop-dead Paul Lynde imitation, and ultimately finds liberation through Elton John and Disco. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank DeCaro.

Astral Weeks
18,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A mind-expanding dive into a lost chapter of 1968, featuring the famous and forgotten: Van Morrison, folkie-turned-cult-leader Mel Lyman, Timothy Leary, James Brown, and many moreVan Morrison's Astral Weeks is an iconic rock album shrouded in legend, a masterpiece that has touched generations of listeners and influenced everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Martin Scorsese. In his first book, acclaimed musician and journalist Ryan H. Walsh unearths the album's fascinating backstory--along with the untold secrets of the time and place that birthed it: Boston 1968.On the 50th anniversary of that tumultuous year, Walsh's book follows a criss-crossing cast of musicians and visionaries, artists and hippie entrepreneurs, from a young Tufts English professor who walks into a job as a host for TV's wildest show (one episode required two sets, each tuned to a different channel) to the mystically inclined owner of radio station WBCN, who believed he was the reincarnation of a scientist from Atlantis. Most penetratingly powerful of all is Mel Lyman, the folk-music star who decided he was God, then controlled the lives of his many followers via acid, astrology, and an underground newspaper called Avatar.A mesmerizing group of boldface names pops to life in Astral Weeks: James Brown quells tensions the night after Martin Luther King, Jr. is assassinated, the real-life crimes of the Boston Strangler come to the movie screen via Tony Curtis, Howard Zinn testifies for Avatar in the courtroom. From life-changing concerts and chilling crimes, to acid experiments and film shoots, Astral Weeks is the secret, wild history of a unique time and place.One of LitHub's 15 Books You Should Read This March

Bugs Britannica
64,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Bugs Britannica is a unique natural history of British insects and other invertebrates. It is not a biological guide but a cultural one, seen through the eyes of writers, poets, musicians, artists and naturalists, as well as ordinary men and women, who have been fascinated and inspired by our 'small life'. Hence, like its distinguished predecessors, Flora Britannica and Birds Britannica, Bugs Britannica is concerned as much with us as with wildlife. It is a record of what we think about our bugs and how they have influenced and continue to influence our lives. Our guide covers the whole range of British invertebrates, from the simplest forms of animal life such as protozoa and sponges to the vast multitude of insects, spiders and shell life. It ranges from the mountaintops through woods, farms and fields to the soil and fresh water, right down to the shoreline and the shallow sea, and it also includes our houses and gardens. The only condition for selection is that the 'bug' must be familiar or in some other way important. This is a record of all the bugs for which we, as a society, feel admiration, concern, affection, fear, astonishment or wonder. In other words, if a species moves us in some way, it is here. If it is known only to a small group of specialists, look elsewhere. Bugs Britannica is a modern 'people's fauna', a portrait in encyclopedic detail of the teeming world of invertebrates seen through human eyes: an alternative natural history for a new age. Bugs Britannica completes a trilogy of books about the cultural dimensions of our wildlife. Like its predecessors, it includes observations, anecdotes and experiences from the public and from members of natural history and conservation societies. Unlike them, it cannot hope to include nearly every one of the approximately 40,000 British invertebrates. It does, however, include all those with a significant cultural profile, whether through folk-names, superstitions and beliefs (true or not), a social or domestic use, or a notable place in British art and literature. It includes bugs we seek to attract and those we fight expensive battles to remove. Above all, we have tried to bring our subjects to life in all their beautiful and bizarre glory. We hope the result will interest, amuse, delight and, perhaps occasionally, horrify the reader. No book in English has ever dealt so comprehensively with the manifold links between the British and the small beings at our doorsteps. Bugs Britannica is a testimony to why small life matters and about how it enriches our lives. A companion volume to Flora Britannica and Birds Britannica Covers more than 1000 species with nearly 400 colour images
