Greetings from Gayborhood: A Look Bac by Donald F Reuter
From the Castro to Chelsea, Fire Island to Boystown, Key West to P-Town, "Welcome To The Gayborhood" celebrates Gay neighbourhoods, past and present. Featuring archival images along with nostalgic and kitschy ephemera (bar ads, event programs, matchbooks, photos and more), this scrapbook-style souvenir captures 12 cities where the boys are and were. Author Don Reuter also chronicles the evolution of traditionally gay neighbourhoods across America and studies how gentrification has both effected them and their role in the greater community. For those who admire the history, creativity, livability, inspiration and more of the Gayborhood, this is the collection that will stand the test of time with great authority, humour, verve and visual delight.
