Queering The Redneck Riviera
Sexuality And The Rise Of Florida Tourism
de Jerry T. Watkins Iii
Sobre o livro
Using oral histories, newspapers, and a variety of other sources this work recovers stories of campy LGBT beach parties, forgotten gay bars, and friendship networks that spanned the South. Gay men, lesbians, and the otherwise queer were an essential part of "The Sunshine State." Placing them at the center of this story exposes the unique interactions of capitalism, tourism, sexuality, and space.
