Naked but for the towel around his waist, a man of a certain age sat by himself, bent slightly forward as if praying, in a corner of the sauna at a gym in central Rome. I had not met this man before, but as I entered the sauna, I thought I recognized him from photographs. My friends told me that this priest was gay, politically savvy, and well connected to the gay Church hierarchy in Rome. Yet as I looked at the man more closely, I saw that it was definitely him. When we were alone, I spoke his name, telling him mine. Yes, his plans had changed, he said, but he was leaving again the next day and would return only after I was gone.

Confessions of a Gay Priest | University of Iowa Press
History, as it is taught, is a straight line of dominoes falling — the relentless clack of fact hitting fact, an orderly queue of causality stretching on forever. History, as it is lived, is a reeling spiral of flight and return; the iterative reawakening of new selves in familiar places; a never-ending interrogation of our own confused and confusing motives; a messy slather of dots on a graph where the center can be plotted only retrospectively. Each bar stands in for the community that patronized it, and each community stands in for Atherton Lin himself at a certain moment in time. By posing his central question in the plural — why did we go out? Yet Atherton Lin is always on the outskirts of those communities, taking shots at their centers even as he acknowledges their orbits, always standing in and athwart his subject.
An Uprising. The book goes on to describe the early morning hours of June 28, , when a riot broke out at the Stonewall Inn between bar patrons and police officers in response to one of the police raids that had become a common occurrence at the then-illegal establishment. The Stonewall uprising, as it is widely known today, and the series of protests that followed helped galvanize the LGBTQ community and resulted in the very first pride march, then called Christopher Street Liberation Day, that occurred in New York City one year later, on June 28, The challenge then came in trying to decide how to best tell the story while taking in all the different perspectives that had resulted from the event. But he stressed it is still important that these types of stories be told.
Our favorite adjectives are revealing. What if I were to describe a book as plain-spoken or lucid? If you felt a twinge of boredom bonus if you thrill to disheveled, elusive, gamy , then I have a book for you. What is being lost?
