". . . awash in photographs while encompassing a great deal of the cultural contributions of New York City’s nonstraight denizens."
—The New York Times
"As Gay Gotham admirably documents, in 20th-century New York pioneering gay and lesbian artists had to cultivate networks of patrons, mentors, peers, and lovers to find needed validation and support. The result was not just a thriving underground culture in the city, but an outpouring of art, literature, dance, theater, music, and design that changed the cultural landscape of New York and beyond."
—Gay And Lesbian Review
"This intimate look inside a century of gay counterculture is riveting..."
"A book that not only celebrates a vibrant and sometimes heartbreaking movement and city, but also encapsulates it for future generations"
"This volume is a visual extravaganza of rare photographs and art from the gay undergrounds; it rescues and explores GLBTQueer history that has been summarily erased or ignored but is nonetheless an indelible part of New York’s arts and cultural heritage."
—New York Journal of Books
"It includes more than 350 images, illustrations and background essays on the social and cultural themes of the LGBT artistic underground, as well as portraits of the show’s iconic artistic figures."
