"Queer City: Gay London from the Romans to the present day" by Peter Ackroyd
In “Queer City,” Peter Ackroyd looks at the metropolis (London) in a whole new way—through the history and experiences of its gay population. Ackroyd takes us right into this city, celebrating its diversity, thrills, and energy on the one hand, but reminding us of its very real terrors, dangers, and risks on the other. In a city of superlatives, it is perhaps this endless sexual fluidity and resilience that epitomize the real triumph of London.
