Hear Us Out!: Lesbian and Gay Stories of Struggle, Progress, and Hope, 1950 to the Present by Nancy Garden
This title is very clear as to what the book contains.... short stories about gay and lesbian characters and their struggles... and the stories take place during different time periods, from the 1950s on. At the beginning of each time period, there is an essay that explains what was going on in the world/America and what that time period was like for gays and lesbians. I enjoyed the stories as well as the essays but I kept finding myself wanting to learn more about the characters and how their situation changed as they got older. I really would have loved if some of the stories were full length novels. This is a YAY for me.
