Summary
  • By the time their paths first crossed in the 1960s, Barbara Deming and David McReynolds had each charted a unique course through the political and social worlds of the American left. Deming, a feminist, journalist, and political activist with an abiding belief in nonviolence, had been an out lesbian since the age of sixteen. McReynolds, the first openly gay man to run for president of the United States, on the Socialist Party ticket, was also a longtime opponent of the Vietnam War he was among the first activists to publicly burn a draft card after this became a felony. In this remarkable dual biography, the prize-winning historian Martin Duberman reveals a vital historical milieu of activism, radical ideas, and coming to terms with homosexuality when the gay rights movement was still in its beginning stages
  • A dual biography which reveals a historical scene of activism, radical ideas, and coming to terms with homosexuality when the gay rights movement was still in its nascent stages. The cast of characters includes intellectuals, artists, and activists from the critic Edmund White and the writer Mary McCarthy to the young Alvin Ailey and Allen Ginsberg. From publisher description
