    It took me six years to read this book and in that time my thoughts and beliefs on identity have continued to ebb. There are moments when I think we should be aiming for a post identity world but then I read books like this so full of vital creativity of commonality. I loved it. Special mention to the HIV years when so many were lost and so easily forgotten in our world of easier meds and Prep.

    This book is a wonderful collection of short stories by the Black Gay writers of the 20th century. Most of the authors I knew from multiple organizations I belonged too. Some are still alive, but most are long gone. These writers revived my interest in writing my own book.
