It's that time of year—GLBT Pride festivities are upon us once again. Why not take a break from all the usual corporate events, and come out (no pun intended) to celebrate queer and anarchist history with the author of FREE COMRADES?
In his book FREE COMRADES: ANARCHISM AND HOMOSEXUALITY IN THE UNITED STATES, Terence Kissack expands the scope of the history of LGBT politics in the US. The anarchists Kissack examines—such as Emma Goldman, Benjamin Tucker, and Alexander Berkman—defended the right of individuals to pursue same-sex relations, often challenging the conservative beliefs of their fellow anarchists as well as those outside the movement—police, clergy, and medical authorities—who condemned LGBT people.

Terence Kissack is a former Executive Director and current board member of San Francisco's GLBT Historical Society. His writings have appeared in Radical History Review and Journal of the History of Sexuality.
